EPOXY PROPELLER COATING All Tempo spray products feature the exclusive adjustable Fanspray valve which offers a professional spray pattern so anyone can "paint like a pro". The extra-width pattern evenly coats about 3 times the area with each pass compared with an ordinary spray valve. Packaged in 11 oz. to 16 oz. cans, depending on product.
Extends blade life
Tempos Epoxy Propeller Coating is formulated with the extra adhesion and abrasion resistance needed to protect propellers from corrosion and wear. Compared to standard enamel and lacquer paints, our epoxy formula stays on the blade more flying hours; hence, with regular use, this formula can extend blade life.
WARNING: POSSIBLE LINK BETWEEN CHROMATE PIGMENTS AND LUNG CANCER
Several independent technical studies have suggested that excessive inhalation of zinc chromate dust may cause lung cancer. On the basis of these findings, the manufacturers have requested that the sale of zinc chromate primer and zinc chromate primer aerosol be restricted to commercial or professional shop use. Professional users should be certain that workers are not exposed to concentrations in excess of the O.S.H.A. threshold limit value (TLV) of 0.1 milligram (as chromium) per cubic meter. If conditions are such that this limit may be exceeded, additional protective equipment is required. A respirator that has a NIOSH/MESA approval TC-23C. See our catalog for respirators that meet this requirement.
I have used this paint on my homebuilt prop and it works fine. It won't last forever but neither will your propellor. This stuff will make the prop last just a little longer and make it look better while doing it.
Some new cans wont spray anymore after just sitting between coats. Most cans are spraying in blobs and make for a very rough surface on the prop. We have had luck with this paint in the past but the past few years it has not been working for us anymore.
Terrible! I bought a can of the white, gray and black paint to touch up my prop. The gray and black worked fine but the white paint came out in globs resembling the popcorn stuff that is sprayed on ceilings. Thinking I might not have shaken it long enough I waited a day, removed the paint from the prop tips, and tried again. Same terrible results. I contacted Spruce and they sent a placement can. The second can was worse that the first. Paint came out on globs and ran down the side of the can. Totally unusable.
Believe last review. Shook well and even did a quick test. Then blobs of paint. Tried can 2 that I ordered just in case. Same thing. What a mess.
This stuff is junk. It does not spray â€“ it splatters on. Nozzles clog. I tried several cans both white and black with dismal results. This is marketed as aircraft quality â€“ it is not.
Garbage! As others have stated, you cant lay down a nice even coat.
First, I did follow the instructions on the cans.
I managed to get the gray and black to an acceptable finish - from 20 feet away!
Before I sprayed the tips white I tested the pattern on a piece of cardboard. It looked ok.
When I went to spray the prop seconds later there were blobs shooting out of the nozzle. I wanted to cry!
Im going to have to re-strip both blades and start over.
Aircraft Spruce should refund anyone that has been suckered into buying this garbage.
DO NOT BUY!!!! You have been warned!
