Which clear will flow like 2021 ppg?

#1
Ive been using ppg 2020 2021 and hok clearcoats and it has gotten ridiculously high priced. Building a 67 nova pro touring custom built car and a 64 ford falcon show car and 67 mustang pro touring car. All 3 will be all over jobs. Need the best most clear clear coat I can find at a reasonable price and one that will last.

Spray like 2021???
Our production clear Has mores solids and a much better clear but for High dollar restro's we only recommend the universal.
A lot of our production shops use the 2100 for all-overs also.

Agree with Jim C I use SPI Universal and only use slow and very slow for overalls regardless of temp but I have a heated booth so I never spray too cold.

That's a great tech sheet. So dont do it like I normally would and just lay it to it. I dont have a booth but a 18x36 room with 10' ceiling and a 36" tubeaxial booth fan on one end and filter bank on other

It's according to what you intend to accomplish. I do all sorts of work. If I'm doing something show quality then follow the "perfect paint job" guidelines and you'll get there. Not all jobs are "perfect paint jobs". I use Universal and I use Euro2020 and spray them like a normal clear for collision and overall refinishing. I have learned that spraying base before I go home and then tacking and clearing the first thing the next morning makes for a much better paint job a few days or weeks later. That 30-60 minute flash is not enough to get all of the solvents out. I've been at it 30 years (plus) and learned something new all of the time. I've been doing the jobs I can this way for a few years and it has made a big difference in how they look weeks and months later. Less shrinkage and die back. Don't get me wrong, I've never had customers complain. But when I see the cars later, I can see they are not as slick as they were when I delivered them. Now they are almost as slick months later. It was trapped solvent all along. Not enough to cause a failure, but enough to cause a little pinching, shrinking, die back, whatever you choose to call it.
