Interesting. Poor Mr. Kives is going to get a lot more calls.
±++++++++++

Well, that was in my first testing.
Tech sheet and label say do not flash between coats.

I'm, a wet painter and I have never been able to get a run, yea if I held the gun still I could.
I have never from 65 to 98 degrees had a solvent pop, even using fast when it was 98 with 70% humidity.

That's what I'm talking about! Mine should be here today!
 
Barry, do we consider this a "premium" clear? Is it on the same level as Universal or Euro for UV resistance, flexibility, etc? I'd like to have a fast clear around. For fast stuff, we bake Universal currently. I like Universal but if I can deliver in a couple hours without baking, it saves us a lot of propane....We use Euro and Universal. I like each for different reasons. Sounds like I may want to add another clear.

If you use a 1.3, go a step slower than you think.

I have a shop in Cape Coral, Florida, and here are his test results.

Air dry sand and buff 30 mins car 1
Air dry had to wait 35 mins on car 2.

Car 1 medium wave lamp 10 minutes, wet sand and buff 15mins.
Car 2 the same but for 8 mins same results as car 1.
Car 3 same but 6 mins had to wait extra 5 mins to wetsand and buff.
 
I am to be almost too afraid to touch parts after that short a time, this is going to be a fun learning curve.

I think the part that interests me is if I can paint a bumper late in the evening, have it sit all night at around 63-65°, and be able to handle it in the morning without needing to lamp it first. That's the typical scenario that we used to use Universal with some reducer and Polar to do.

You’ll be pleasantly surprised, I painted a set of wiper arms and used 3101 fast and in one hour air dry they were able to install them. Same with a side mirror I did recently.
