KBS Fusion primer
« on: August 22, 2013, 07:57:08 AM »
I am currently using the KBS rust proof system and very happy with the results, best rust proofing product that I have used, but has any body used the KBS Fusion etching primer?, if it seems to be a single pack paint that sticks to anything and can be top coated with anything, approximately $140 for 4 litres, no thinning required, I plan to use acrylic for top coat, only because I don't have a spray booth for 2 pak

cheers
Graham

I use Septone filler on all my repairs or modifications, never had any problems so far, and doesn't seem to shrink to bad, then normally use acrylic etch primer on top

Yes I have in the past,  KBS etch down over top of all body work , followed by a 1k Acrylic primmer, then a 1k Acrylic Lacquer base coat then clear coat, the reason for the primmer over the etch was to obtain better build.
Just make sure the filler is done correct as you have no protection under it.

Yes it can, as only used bottom suction cup back then, think it has a rating of 10-20% reducer, was told this by the guy I got it from, so check, as their shop brought it in from the States back then..

Sorry, yes from what I can recall it was good to spray straight from the tin, but I think I added a little thinner to help it flow, you only need a single covering coat, don't forget to sand it with 320g if it is outside the flash window for the primmer, around 20-30mins I think but check the tech sheet for this. but sticks like sh....t.

Thanks again Bas,
 I think I will give it a try on some small items first, apparently they do manufacture in Australia now, the reviews I have seen so far are good on all there products, very impressed with there rust stop system, still got some of the paint on my hands from last Saturday, tried all the usual solvents that I work with, acetone, thinners, MEK, etc, and still wont come of, and has set as hard as a rock on the areas that I have painted on the van

This is going to sound very sad.... But the best thing I found for getting off set/dry paint on skin is....... hand cream. gets in under the edges and softens the skin... then the paint comes off.
Just not sure if it's removing a layer or two of skin as well.  :)
Workin for the weekend!
