Automotive products are generally easier to remove when they are fresh and haven’t fully cured. For paint products the best way to remove is with 2K thinners but there are some things to consider. If you are trying to remove paint overspray from fresh paint or TPA / 1K coatings […]
For cleaning overspray, the quicker you remove it the easier it will be. 2k thinners will remove light overspray. Do not uses thinners to remove RAPTOR from TPA/ 1K coatings as it will soften the coating. A coarse compound and mechanical polisher would also remove light overspray from OEM paint […]
As long as the light coloured application of RAPTOR is sprayed to full opacity, then the dark tone of the epoxy primer will not be an issue. You may see a slight off colour after the first coat of RAPTOR, but this will disappear after the second coat is applied. […]
The air sucked through a compressor can be quite damp and if you are painting in a humid area this can have a negative effect on the performance of the paint. Most compressors that can reach a suitable pressure will have an internal filter that takes out water from the […]
A 6 HP compressor that generates 10 bar line pressure should provide sufficient air supply, but is dependent on the application equipment / gun (Schutz type or gravity feed HVLP) used to apply the RAPTOR.
Yes, RAPTOR can be used for both.
Yes, RAPTOR can be baked for 30 minutes at 60°C. Baking will speed up the initial drying but not the through cure. It is still recommended waiting 7 days for heavy duty use and 72 hours before exposure to water.
It is not recommended for application below 5C. When RAPTOR is applied at the lower temperatures, the dry and cure time is significantly extended.
One RAPTOR 4L Kit will cover approximately 12 sq metres at recommended film build (3 sq metres / litre).
The average thickness for RAPTOR is 200-250 µmper coat. Applying 2 medium coats of RAPTOR is recommended. Measurements are approximate and are dependent on the application method.
