I'm restoring a carbon fiber wing, so I'll have to paint both sides. All I've been able to find out about dry times is the typical "5-10 mins in between coats, and also dry sufficient to polish after 24h" -- anyone have actually any kind of pointer as to exactly how lengthy I need to wait before turning it over and also spraying the other side? I have the right to hit it via a warmth gun if that will help anypoint.

You are watching: Spray max 2k clear coat dry time

I likewise have actually another question about preparation. What would certainly be the ideal means to prepare the surface for the glossiest end up after sanding? I was reasoning of using a tack towel, yet I'm worried about the wax (or whatever the sticky stuff on a tack fabric is) possibly dulling the finish.

Thanks.

You have to let it dry at least over night, preferably much longer. I commonly attempt to hang things by their mounting points and spray the totality thing at when.

Just usage a light touch through the tack rag and you won’t leave any type of streaks.

Writing this as a 2nd reply since you both recommended hanging...

It's a 2 piece spoiler, and also I've disassembled the second item. I dont check out a problem hanging the middle, smaller piece by putting the screws in the screw holes and also hanging it by the screws, but the various other piece is much bigger and tbh fairly heavy. Obviously not exceptionally heavy as its carbon fiber, however carbon fiber is recognized to be a little bit delicate.

It's obtained 6 threaded mounting screw holes on the bottom though, I mean I might use prefer 4 of them for a much more also weight distribution.

It doesnt have actually any steel brackets favor carbon fiber hoods carry out though.

Theres nowright here to put zipties that wouldnt cover a room I desire to paint, I was going to put the screws ago in the steel threaded screw holes and also tie string roughly it, although I most likely would certainly have put zip ties over the knot of the string though for added safety

Keep in mind that you have to really watch the ambient humidity through this stuff. I did some in the garage throughout a rain storm and it got a "cracked glass" result that only developed in the time of drying overnight due to the humidity.
