Anyone heard or used this stuff?
'bout $50 a quart
Yes, lots. It has its place. Drill two holes in bottom you can plug with sheet metal screws. That lid will only come off once. Don’t expect to save any you don’t use directly.
Yep been around for years…used to have a piece of painted sheet metal on the local paint Jobbers counter, the idea was to bend it and see how tough it was…
Don't get it on your skin, it won't come off until that layer of skin does. And DO NOT SPRAY IT WITHOUT A GOOD RESPIRATOR. It'll happily catalyze in your lungs, as well as your chassis.
Sounds like KBS by a different manufacturer.
Ive never heard of, or seen it before.... But Im in the western US
What is it made of ?
Example: Rustoleum is Alkyd Enamal
These (KBS, por-15 this one) are all the same basic thing, moisture cured urethane. If you plan on spraying you need a full face respirator at a minimum just like the others given your lungs and eyes contain moisture that will cure the product.
moisture cured eh..... humfff ... I'll have to research that
like that moisture cured gorella glue? That stuff is garbage
why the bottom? I put one self tapping screw in the lid and one on the side near the top
Why use any screws or cans? Pour it into glass Mason jars and wipe the lip clean after pouring some into a cool whip tub to brush out of. Never pour any back in the jar after use. Cap the jar with proper lid and stays good for a very very long time. Throw the can away.
Because over time a skin will form across the top of the liquid as the air / liquid ratio increases and you can then remove the lid to get the remaining good paint.
Flood the can with propane from an un-lit torch before you close the lid, no oxygen, no moisture= no hardening.
It’s very tough paint. I think it is great as long as it is not in sunlight, such as on a frame
