  2. Which of your coatings should I use to seal the inside of an Aluminum Tank I use as my 100% Methanol Fuel Reservoir on my Injection System? Also, are there any special instructions or suggestions on prep and coating maintenance/reapplication beyond those already provided on your site/products? Thanks in Advance
  3. Last week
  4. check out this thorough guide! https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/vids-guide-to-ultimate-playfield-restoration/page/3
  5. Spraying BlackTop: Spray pressure (at the gun) of 35-45 psi (250-330kpa) for siphon/pot guns 25-35psi (170-250kpa) for gravity/top container guns. 1.5mm Spray Tip is generally recommended. Thin 5-10% as required. Use only KBS #1 Thinner. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  6. What is the thinning percentage for spraying
  7. Earlier
  8. For KBS Top Coater Aerosol, recoating can be done once first or consecutive coat is dry-to-touch. For best results, always apply KBS Top Coater coats consecutively within 24 hours of each coat curing. There is no reason to use Fusion SEP when applying additional coats of KBS Top Coater Aerosol. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  9. If RustSeal is fully cured and the surface is clean, you can simply use Fusion SEP. The sanding is for a worst-case scenario and 99% of the time, sanding is not needed. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  10. Manual reads Fusion can be applied directly over Rust Seal after 24 hours, but also mentions for older coatings sanding is required. After what time Rust Seal is considered too old for the direct Fusion application ?
  11. Fusion is hardly compatible with the Top coater aerosol, is there a way to avoid sanding and etch directly into Top coater to apply additional layers ?
  12. Ok i will see what sanding it to the primer looks like. Ill try 3 or 4 even lighter coats thankyou
  13. You can sandblast and start from scratch or scuff the XTC Primer that is cured. Either method will work great. Last tip is to be sure to stir the XTC really well. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
  14. Ok i feel the coats were very light 1st coat didnt cover and 2nd was better but could still see primer faintly in some spots after 2nd coat. i used a small touch up gun with a 1.3 tip so i wouldnt dump a ton of material on it. Also i waited 8hrs between the coats white. Would it be better to sandblast then and start from scratch?
  15. This typically happens with the XTC Pure White because it goes on too thick trying to cover in one coat the color of the XTC Primer. You can scuff the XTC Primer but that is not typically needed. The key is very thin coats with at least an hour between coats. If you cover in one coat the gray XTC Primer, you are probably too thick. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  16. So i just painted my headers a few weeks back they looked awesome and after the first time letting it run to fill up my new radiator the paint started to bubble and then flake off. I did everything as the instructions said sandblasted, cleaned with reduced kbs cleaner, dried with compressed air, 2 light coats of aerosol primer, waited about 10hrs or more then 2 light coats of pure white, baked in a welding rod oven at 350 for half hour. I even took the precaution of letting them sit for a week before i put them on the motor and only ran it for a few seconds 2 or three times to give it a good heat cycle before i actually ran it. Primer looks fine under the paint, should i have scuffed the primer? I included a before picture and will take a picture later of what it looks like now.
  17. Keep the pick up tube and the space below the pick-up tube open by using pipe cleaners that you can find at your local hobby supply store. Put the pipe cleaners in the tube and deep enough that it keeps the space open between the pick-up tube and the tank. Keep the pipe cleaners in there until the Tank Sealer has stopped moving inside the tank but before the Tank Sealer has fully cured in the tank. Does that make sense? Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  18. Howdy! I just completed the KBS Klean step from the three-part tank sealing kit I ordered for my boats aluminum fuel tank. Its amazing how good it looks already! before I commit to the coating process by going forward with the Acid Etch, I wanted to share my concern about the coating clogging up the pick-up tube, primarily where there is minimal clearance between the tube and the tank bottom... what recommendations do you have to prevent this from being a problem? Best I can tell, the pick-up tube is not readily removable.
  19. At this point, sand smooth. 1000 grit should do the trick. Apply another coat of DiamondFinish Clear thinned 10-20% with KBS #1 Thinner or Xylene. Please be sure the coat is thin. Please report back with how well that works for you.
  20. It had been around 2 weeks since kamar was applied. Second coat of diamond finish was applies 2-3hoursafter 1st coats. Temp about 24 degrees and humidity 50%
  21. How long did you wait before your first coat of DiamondFInish Clear? How long did you wait before your second coat of DiamondFinish Clear? What is the temperature in the room where you are doing the coating? What is the relative humidity of the room where you are doing the coating?
  22. I am experiencing dimpling when applying over a ceramic tile. Tile is finished with krylon kamar and sanded prior to coating. After 2 coats, there is dimpling on the surface and some bubbles .. Both coats were applied in a thin coat with a roller. Any help would be appreciated as we are close to giving up on this product
  23. Your best bet at this point is to be another quart of RustBlast and start the process over. You need to clean the tank before you etch the tank. Please let us know if that helps and if you have any additional questions.
  24. hi, i was to excited to start the process of coating my new motorcycle fuel tank and i use the rust blast instead of the degreasser. i mixed it 1/1 with water and had it sitting for a day in the tank and now rust spots have appeared. DUMB me. oh well i just got to fix the issue now. what would be the simplest way to fix everything?
  25. If you post some pictures, that would be very helpful. Some tips: Micro-bubbles are from excess film thickness or not enough time between coats. Apply thin coats and allow enough time between coats. Get the pressure up. If you feel like your gun is not atomizing the paints well, get the pressure up. Always measure the pressure at the gun and be sure to use a moisture trap at the gun. You can thin up to 30% which allows more time for flow out. We are looking forward to hearing more from you and hopefully some pictures.
  26. I’m trying to spray DF and I’m using the recommended air pressure and top size, and I thinned about 15%, but I’m not getting a uniform film. It does not seem to atomizer small enough and looks like it lays on like tiny globes that almost give a fine sand like texture. This is not flowing out and self leveling like the literature says it will. I’m sorry if this is a rookie question, but what am I doing wrong.
  27. The picture looks like white zinc phosphate (left behind by RustBlast by design) mixed with some slight surface rust (to be expected unless your relative humidity is 0) which is completely normal. You can proceed to the Tank Sealer Step. Please let us know if that answered your questions and if you have any additional questions.
