RE: Rust Preventative Undercoating for vehicle



I had a similar problem in trying to change a paint shop to a water-based
lacquer.  The problem with the quality and the ease of spraying was due to
the technicians doing the application did not change their method of
application.  We used the coating salesperson to get the correct training
for our people so they could use the product and be happy.  You may want to
get with whoever supplied the water base material (or other suppliers) and
see if they offer instruction to new users so their product is correctly
applied.  Water based coatings and solvent based coatings aren't always
applied the same way and getting people to change old methods can be the
cause of unacceptable coatings.

Subject: Rust Preventative Undercoating for vehicle


Hello all,

I am working with a company that paints and finishes trucks who may
have to get an air permit if they cannot find a substitute for their
undercoating material.  Their undercoating has a rust preventative that
has High levels of HAPs.  Does anyone know of any other undercoatings
out their that may be low to no vocs and contain no HAPs?  They've tried
a water-based product that did not provide as good of coverage and was
not easily sprayed.  Plus, they take the solids out of their spent
thinner and add them to this undercoating, but I think the solid
addition may not be possible with a water-based product.  Any leads in
the right direction are appreciated.  Thank you.
