AutoBorne Sealers have incredible adhesion to any substrate including plastic, dry fast & level, all shave well when dry sanded with 1000 grit or finer sandpaper.
AutoBorne Sealers allow for quicker drying times. Not only do the sealers themselves dry quickly, subsequent coats of Auto Air Colors dry quicker as less material is required to cover when colours are colour-keyed with AutoBorne Sealer.
AutoBorne Sealers are universally compatible with any paint system and can be applied direct to other primer types such as DTM etch-primers used to treat bare metal before AutoBorne Sealer is applied. Apply direct to aluminum, wood, urethane and most plastics and basically any substrate.
Not suitable for raw metal surfaces.
AutoBorne Sealers adhesion is truly tenacious.
AutoBorne Sealers are a water-based epoxy which takes 48 hours to fully cure after application. Sealers may be taped on, sanded and Auto-Air Colors / Wicked Colors / Illustration Colors may be applied less than 30 minutes after application. Prior to applying solvent-based paint or clear direct to Sealers allow 48 hours cure time, sand or degrease prior to application. Sealers may be top-coated with solvent-based paint soon after application provided Sealers are wiped with degreaser or sanded. Applying Createx Colors paints direct to Sealers after application does not require sanding or degreasing.
