DESCRIPTION: Color Blender is a universal blending product that can be used as a wet-bed sealer, lock-down clear, cut-in clear, mid-coat for tri-coats, graphics and basecoat blender. This blending agent is compatible with most basecoat systems and can be reduced with standard and reactive reducers. FEATURES: Lock-down clear; reduces mottling used with basecoat, tri-coats, pearls and metallics Fast dry cut-in clear in areas not exposed to sunlight Wet bed sealer; better adhesion, better color match INSTRUCTIONS: Note: 73001 should be reduced with the same type of reducer that was used in the base coat. If reactive reducer was used in the basecoat, reduce 73001 with reactive reducer. If urethane grade reducer was used in the base, use urethane grade reducer in the 73001. Also, if a basecoat activator was added to the basecoat, add basecoat activator to the 73001. Lock-down clear Reduce CP-56500 Color Blender 1:1 with appropriate reducer.
