Wotked well on multiple days. Flat finish was even. Covered well
I had some issues with the paint due to high heat and humidity conditions. I called PTI directly and explained my problem. They took the time to replicate the problem in the lab and offer me a solution. Great customer service from PTI. If you order this paint from AS and are in extreme conditions make sure you inform them. PTI will change the chemistry of the paint to match the conditions.
The clear epoxy spray worked really well. Applied in 65-70 degree heat and made several light coats allowing the epoxy to build up. Between coats itâs essential to purge the spray nib or itâll block up for sure. I waited 30 mins between each coat. It cures super hard and looks good. It did give my white prop tips a slight yellow tint though. Not enough to bother fixing but I know itâs there and itâs a bit annoying. One point off for that.
This paint went on my propeller terribly. I DA sanded the surface and cleaned thoroughly prior to application. It would not flow out and is blotchy and the surface is rough. I suppose it will do for another year but next annual Ill be removing my prop and taking this coating off. Ill find another paint for next year. I would not recommend this paint.
It is in an aerosol can, and dries in approx 20 minutes. The tech data sheet is available on our web site for more details on preparation.
It is a top coat paint.
The zinc chromate primer is best used with something other than a urethane or epoxy topcoat. The reason is that the solvents in those coatings can wet in to the primer and destroy adhesion.
With that said, we believe that if you allow the zinc chromate to dry 48-72 hours the epoxy coating should not lift the primer. We do of course recommend using our epoxy propeller coating because the solvents in that coating will flash off quickly. If the zinc chromate is dried hard those solvents should not have time to penetrate it. We recommend that you test whatever epoxy coating you intend to use to make sure that your adhesion is not negatively impacted. Let us know if there is anything else.
Per PTI: The primer you would want to use is the zinc chromate or zinc phosphate. The epoxy propeller coating listed on this page is the top coat for props.
It can be applied to bare aluminum, but it must be clean and free of oils, grease, salt, etc. Primer can be used if desired.
