Troubleshooting We are always keen to resolve any problem.
SOLUTION How to fix clouding painting defect. Technical Problems
Origin Absence of effect coat at paint application especially on metallic shades. Incorrect set up of spray gun settings. Uneven application of paint. Incorrect product spraying viscosity. Excessively hot temperature in the booth. Not sufficient flash off times between coats. Uneven spraying distance during final coat of paint or clear coat.
Avoidance Use material according to technical data sheets. Improve spraying techniques e.g., use spraying gun parallel to the painted object. Correct spraying gun set up (pressure, distance etc.). Use product and thinner according to technical data sheet. Make sure you allow sufficient flash off times.
How To Fix the Problem In case problem appears after applying clear coat: When the clear coat is fully dried sand and reapply basecoat and clear coat. In case problem appears after solvent borne basecoat application: When the film is dry apply a final mist coat before spraying the clear coat. In case problem appears after waterborne basecoat application: On semi-dried coat apply a final mist coat according to the technical data sheet.

  • Can products be transported in temperatures bellow 0°C?

    Most of the products, made by HB BODY SA, are solvent-based, so transportation below 0°C should not be a problem. Products that have problems at low temperatures are products based in water, for the sole reason that water freezes at 0°C

  • Which is the lowest recommended temperature for product application?

    The ideal temperature for product application is room temperature and that is 21°C. Product application becomes difficult at temperatures with large deviations from the ideal since the application viscosity increases or decreases (temperature dependent). The lowest recommended product application is about 5-8°C for primers, paints, clear coats and underbody applications. The commonest application temperature for putties is 5°C.

  • What is the shelf-life of a product?

    The shelf life of our products is indicated on each Technical Data Sheet (TDS) and outlines the period during which optimal quality and effectiveness are ensured. Proper storage conditions (+5°C - +25°C) (41°F - 77°F), intact packaging, and sealing are essential for maintaining product performance.

    Shelf life can vary between product categories and even among products within the same category due to variations in formulation, materials, and ingredients. To guarantee lasting quality, it's crucial to adhere to recommended storage conditions, including avoiding exposure to humidity levels above 80% and direct sunlight.
