Createx Colors Intercoat 4030
Createx Colors Intercoat 4030
The Createx Colors Intercoat 4030 is a game-changer when it comes to automotive and hard-surface applications. This non-catalyzed, polyurethane, water-based clear is designed to improve spray performance and coating durability. With its dual functionality as both an intercoat and an additive, the 4030 Intercoat Clear is a must-have for anyone in the automotive industry.
When it comes to mixing the additive, it is recommended to use it with Auto Air Colors, candy₂O, Wicked Colors, and Createx Illustration Colors for hard-surface and automotive applications. Simply mix 10% of the additive per volume with your paint and ensure a thorough mix for optimal performance. For the best results, let the mixture acclimate for at least 10 minutes before use.
One thing to note is that the 4030 Intercoat Clear is not a reducer, as it does not truly lower the paint viscosity. To achieve the best results, it is advised to use the 4012 and 4020 Reducers along with the 4030 Intercoat Clear. If you're using candy₂O, it's essential to mix it with the 4030 additive to ensure color formation and coating integrity. Mix at least 10% or more for the desired effect.
In terms of application, the 4030 Intercoat Clear offers numerous benefits. When using a spray-gun and applying the base color with an airbrush, the 4030 Intercoat Clear improves flow upon contact with the surface, resulting in a more level finish. It also enhances metallic orientation and dye dispersion in candy₂O, making it easier to achieve the desired look.
Not only does the 4030 Intercoat Clear enhance the appearance, but it also promotes a more durable and scratch-resistant finish after air drying. This means your projects will stand the test of time and look as good as new for years to come.
When used as an intercoat, the 4030 Intercoat Clear provides a semi-gloss, protective finish over base colors prior to graphics. Its flat, hard, and level surface is perfect for taping and masking, minimizing the risk of under-spray.
However, it's important to note that when using the 4030 Intercoat Clear as an intercoat over candy₂O colors, it should not be applied a second time. Additional application of the 4030 Intercoat Clear can reactivate the first application and cause bleeding of the candy's dyes. In such cases, the recommended non-reactive barrier is the 4004 Transparent Base.
In conclusion, the Createx Colors Intercoat 4030 is a versatile and indispensable product for anyone working with automotive and hard-surface applications. With its ability to improve spray performance, enhance color formation, and provide a durable finish, it's a game-changer in the industry.
I always find new uses for this stuff. It lays down awesome I noticed they changed the name from balancing clear to innercoat clear which makes more sense
good to mix with the auto air colors, i found that adding a higher ratio of balancing clear to less paint helps improve flow , very important for a good base
I generally use Createx 4050 for anything I intend to have a glossy appearance. However, I like to mix Createx 4030 as a carrier for glow in the dark mica powders as well as Createx own Glow In The Dark base, since 4030 does not have the ultraviolet protection of UVLS 4050.
Very good addictive for CI paint. Must have for painting on hard surfaces.
This stuff is great for all kinds of stuff. Can't live without after using it.
I bought this to help the paint spray stick to plastic models using an airbrush
I use it alot in my fluorescent colors and candy colors to thicken up the paint
