    Starfire Urethane Basecoat Technical Information Guide

    Starfire Urethane Basecoat is an easy to use two stage paint system. Starfire Urethane Basecoat can be used with a variety of urethane clear coats to achieve the desired gloss and UV protection.

    Substrates

    Starfire Urethane Basecoat paints can be applied over properly prepared OEM finishes or previously painted surfaces (enamel, urethane, and lacquer). Fiberglass, plastics, body work, and bare metal may require the use of a primer.

    Mixing Ratio

    3 Parts Paint
    1 Part Reducer

    Example - 3oz paint, 1oz reducer

    To mix this product, measure out the items into a mixing cup. Mix only enough paint to spray at that time. DO NOT mix all material at the same time. Repeat process as needed.

    Pot Life

    Temperature – 65-80 degrees
    Humidity – Less than 50%

    Unmixed paint – if properly covered will maintain indefinite pot life.
    Mixed paint – estimated 4-6 hours uncovered

    (The use of retarders or reducers other than what is provided in the kit may alter pot life.)

    Surface Preparations

    Before sanding it is recommended to wash with soap and water only. The use of a wax and grease remover is also recommended. Sand areas and apply primers as needed. Read directions for the primer used before applying top coat. The use of acrylic lacquer primers will require a wait of 24 hours before painting.
