    Thinning 2K? No. of coats?

    Edward Mackenzie
    By Edward Mackenzie,
    Hi there, hope I've got this in the right part of the forum, I am struggling a bit with this new forum! I'm looking at the 2K chassis kit that contains 5,000 ml 2K and 6 zero prep cavity wax aerosols, I plan to apply the 2K by brush, do I need to thin this down at all for brushing? I don't think so but not sure!
    and how many coats would I need really and how many coats on my 109 chassis would 5l do? not too fussed at this stage if it doesn't do axles, would be nice but i can always buy more later for them Thanks!

    By Craig Jones,
    This guide will explain how To Apply Buzzweld Corrosion Stabilising Protective coating with minimal fuss.   Mixing ratio 1:1 by Volume (not weight) Usage. mix the product thoroughly at a low RPM so you don't introduce heat which will reduce the pot life of 60>75 minutes. DO NOT mix the product and put the lid back on. Once mixed 2K Armour will begin catalysing and setting regardless of if you put the lid on, or even submerse it. Mix thoroughly, do not use a round object. Use a paint mixing paddle at 200>300RPM  Mix small batches at a time. Provide a key. The rougher the better, Can be sprayed thinning 20% with 2K Armour Thinners   Application is ideally with a brush/ roller. For best finish use a small gloss roller on a long reach arm, and lightly load the roller. 2nd coat should be done BEFORE the product sets, otherwise you will need to abraid again.   Cure times depend on Temperature and other environmental factors. typically touch dry in a few hours, and hard cure 18 hours. Fully cured takes several days. Colour will often not be a perfect pitch black. Can be over coated with any typical coating.
