Additives & Reducers
UNIVERSAL WHITE PRIMER
Is a waterborne high performance modified acrylic suitable for many surfaces. It exhibits excellent adhesion to wood, metal, acrylic, urethane foam, most rigid PVC, properly prepared brick and concrete and many other surfaces’ except polycarbonate. Almost all paints will adhere to it whether solvent or water based. This primer also exhibits good long term durability due to its water permeability when used on wood surfaces. It is easy to sand and using a fine sandpaper with water can be lightly buffed to a gloss smooth finish which promotes high gloss top coating.
TI-COTE CLEAR PRIMER BARRIER COAT
Is a high performance water based clear primer/barrier coating developed for use on vinyl substrates such as flexible faces, awnings, banners, and self-adhesive vinyls, to allow the use of enamel topcoats and lettering enamels.
HIGH BUILD WHITE PRIMER
Is a high viscosity waterborne primer developed to fill porosity in high density urethane foam as well as fill tooling marks in most woods and foams. It may also be used for filling various porous substrates and is easily sanded for a smooth finish.
METAL AND WOOD PRIMER WHITE
Is a fast drying high opacity primer with good adhesion qualities. A coarser pigment particle offers the system greater “tooth” than PBOW Block Out White. The PMWPW Metal and Wood Primer White sands easily. It is a primer for shops desiring one primer for most wood and steel surfaces. It is also good for use as a prime-burnishing sealer under gold sizes and may be slightly tinted as one would gold size for this use.
Is a flow enhancer which is an additive for enamels. It enhances vehicle solids, thus increasing gloss and durability. One drawback is that after the solvent portion evaporates, it may cause the paint to fell slightly “gummy.” If this occurs it is recommended to add a few drops of 6002 High Temp Reducer to regain a proper working consistency.
LOW TEMP REDUCER
HIGH TEMP REDUCER
The Reducer is formulated to improve flow at normal temperate conditions by reducing viscosity without significantly altering the quality of the coating being reduces. The Low Temp Reducers is formulated to improve flow and leveling at low temperatures by reducing the viscosity and accelerating the evaporation rate without significantly altering the quality of the coating being reduces. May also be used as a a thinner for spray applications. The High Temp Reducer is formulated to improve flow and leveling at high temperatures by reducing the viscosity and slowing down the evaporation rate without significantly altering the quality of the coating being reduced. The reducers may be used with Lettering Enamels, Bulletin Colors, Art and Sign Poster Colors, Pearlescent Enamels or Fluorescent Colors.
Is designed to accelerate drying time for Lettering Enamels, Bulletin Colors, and Pearlescent Enamels. The Hardener will extend color life, increase gloss, and improve adhesion to most substrates. Adding Hardener to the paint will aid in preventing “lifting” when overcoating with an automotive “style” clearcoat system.
TINTING BLACK & WHITE
#4001 & #4002
Are tinting bases for use with Lettering Enamels and Bulletin Colors in achieving various shades without affecting the properties of the base coatings.
