    Substrates

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

    1 Part Hardener/Activator

    Example - 8oz paint, 2oz reducer, and 1oz hardener

    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.
