Anyone up to date?
The internet is full of, dickheads, wrong information, and misleading marketing.
Basic Acrylic, and normal 2k paint I understand.
But there are a few 'exotics' that I just can't nail down.
For example, I was talking to concept paints, asking how their clearcoat uses "2k technology" but is in a 1 part rattle can.
First, after talking to a chemist mate, he suggested there are a few hardeners that are activated by Oxygen exposure, and are packaged under Nitrogen.
Cool, I thought to myself, isocyanate free, and possible catalyzed (even if it is weaker than true 2k); so I jumped onto the work facebook account and asked the question.
There is no hardener.
It is a moisture cured product. It cures with moisture in the air.
The Super Gloss Clear is not as chemical resistant as full on Isocyanate based 2 pack.
So I'm guessing (and as far as I can tell, narrows it exclusively to) a moisture cured urethane.
(EDIT: It's not, its marketing bullshit, '2k technology' means '2k clarity', and yeah, it has that, but it's just a pure acrylic.
If you want a p aint that IS moisture cure urethane clear coat, look into everything KBS make, but mainly their Diamond Clear.)
Is anyone up to date on paint technologies?
Does this sound right?
How does this stuff hold up to chemical exposure?
and hardness compared to regular air-dry Acrylic?
I bought a can, because it said "2k technology"; I knew it wasn't true isocyanate 2pack, but I hoped it had a real hardener in it.
Long shot on an IT forum, but anyone know about this shit more than I?
