|PTI NoPop™ Retarder is a specially formulated solvent that is not photochemically reactive. This product is used as an additive to slow down the dry time of fast drying paints and primer. During hot and dry temperatures, coatings have a tendency to “solvent pop” and/or “dry spray”, small air bubbles form at the surface of the paint or when the paint dries before it hits the substrate. Retarders keep the material “wet” allowing it to flow, dry, and cure as it should.|
