Thread: Slick Sand, How Thick

    Question Slick Sand, How Thick

    heres the deal. I'm painting my car door. I took the existing paint down to bare metal. Now I want to spray the door with slick sand and then top coat. My ? is how many coats of slick sand primer do I need before i should guide coat then top coat?
    Do you think a 2.0mm nozzel will be enough to spray the slick sand? I looks like pretty thick paint.
    Thanks.

    When I spray Slick Sand, I shoot it on with my 2.0 hvlp primer gun. I apply one wet coat, let it flash, and then apply an additional one or two wet coats (if you plan on doing a lot of block sanding, go for two additional coats). Slick Sand is rather thick, but it can be thinned up to 5-10% with acetone. Make sure you stir it very well before you use it (I stir it until I can get all of the solid that settles to mix in). When spraying on, it sprays on and dries with a textured (needs to be sanded) finish. This finish is easy to break with sandpaper, and Slick Sand is easy to sand smooth.

    cool thanks for the help. What do you mean when you say flash?

    I meant when it starts to look dry and the solvents are mostly out. Depending on temperature and humidity, for me, it usually took about 10-15 minutes. Let us know how you make out.

    Here is a PDF from EverCoat with information about SlickSand. http://evercoat.com/imgs/pis/SLICKSANDPIS.pdf
