Ranthane Aircraft Coatings
Ranthane requires three separate components (which are sold separately, see Options tab) that are mixed before application. All three components are required and cannot be substituted: Ranthane polyurethane paint, AU-2X1 Catalyst, and G-4200 Ranthane Thinner.
Mixing: Mix two parts Ranthane with one part AU-2X1 and stir. Allow to sit for 20 minutes induction time before use.
Thinning: For best results, thin 33%, then spray a vertical surface test area with a moderate coat to insure that the film has no orange peel and is not too runny.

Ranthane may be applied directly over fabric surfaces when the Rand-0-Fill silver butyrate has dried at least 36 hours. More drying time is better. Epoxy primer should dry for one week over metal or composite surfaces before applying Ranthane. If you are painting a light color you would use the white epoxy primer.
They recommend EP420 epoxy primer.

This is a 2:1 mix, so two parts Ranthane to one part catalyst.
