  • will regular paint gun work with tech line coating

    I want put the black satin ceramic coating on my snowmobile pipe. The question I have is will my siphon paint gun work or do I need to get a gravity fed gun.

      tell me about the black satin coating. I have not used it yet. does it get wet and kind of sticky when it cures. I want to remove my heat shields on my snowmoblie to save weight will it melt plastic under the hood while it is curing, can I get a partial cure by putting it in my oven at 450 degrees, thanks.

          Custom, do you bake for quicker setup? Product claims air drying, no baking necessary. I've got a motorcycle exhaust I'm thinking about using this stuff on. Is the finish gloss or satin (not sure if that's just a brand name or the actual results) Do you have any pictures? What do I need as far as a spray gun and compressor to get it done? How much of this will I need? Will 4 oz cover a 4-1 motorcycle exhaust?

            YA, these are some good questions, cant wait to see the answers. I have applied this coating myself but have not tried it out yet because its on my snowmobile pipes and its summer.

                Custom, how would you describe the finish, matte, semi-gloss/satin or glossy?

                  it depends ... i get semi flat and matte..

                  the alum. coating i get a flat look to it .. the satin black i got a semi shine ..

                  all i can say is the hotter it gets the hard it get's and clean your gun very good

                        Custom, can you give me any pointers with spraying this coating? Manufacturers directions say that thickness should only be about 1/3 to 1/5 of a regular coat of paint. What psi should I use to spray? It also says it's not a good idea to apply several coats or a single thick coat for risk of bubbling. Got any tips for me?

                          25-32 psi i spray 2 light coats .. the alum i spray at 32psi spray 3 light coats on ...

                          When you get your tech line DO NOT shake it Stir it with a stick.

                            I thought you were suspose to shake it to get it mixed. I have put mine in a blender. I found a stainless steel one at a pawn shop and I blend it together before I shoot it. seems to work real well. Then I shoot it at 35 psi and then bake it at 450 for 1 hour. comes out looking exellent.

                              don't shake it .. on the can it stated to stir to mix. i know the clump of junk at the bottom is a pain to break up.. so by stiring you are mixing it all up good and spraying the full product.. i never thought of the blender .. i went as far as bengind a hook and mounting it to my die grinder ( only corded tool i got in the shop is my buffer the rest is all air power )
