good paint to work with covers wellThis paint covers well , I did have to put in more reducer then it called for . My paint gun has a small nozzle I believe that is why I had to put in more reducer. I really like the shine when finished. I plan on putting on clear coat. I would recommend this paint.

Great ProductGreat to spray with and coverage is superb. Highly recommend.
The simple answer is “no” – Majic Tractor, Truck & Implement Enamels dry (and cure) very hard without a Catalyst Hardener. The use of Catalyst Hardener is entirely optional, but benefits of increased hardness (greater abrasion resistance) and accelerated curing, will be realized by using one.
The most critical factor(s) for Majic T&I products drying hard, and within the stated time frame, have more to do with the applied thickness, and time allowed between coats – more so than with the addition of a catalyst/hardener. Throughout the industry, the terms “dry” and “cure” are often used synonymously, without clear definition of the difference. Oil/alkyd products “dry” by solvent evaporation, but “cure” (hardens) by oxidation. The use of a catalyst hardener affects the “cure” time, but literally has no bearing on the (solvent evaporation) “dry” time. In other words, even when using a Catalyst Hardener, the allowable recoat time remains at 24 hours (minimum) – but the full “cure” time actually is accelerated by approximately 40% (depending on applied thickness, number of coats and atmospheric conditions during the first 48-72 hours (or so).
You should be aware that, with-or-without a catalyst hardener, the applied thickness of Majic T&I Enamel should be at 2.5 mils wet, and to allow a minimum of 24 hours, dry time, between coats.
Majic Catalyst Hardener is NOT recommended for use with Majic T&I Primers (no measurable advantage), nor with Majic Clear Coat High Gloss Lacquer (may cause an indelible blush to finish).

paint worked out great! mixed it according to directions with reducer & hardner,.,wondered if it is wet sandable and power bufferable...and if so what "cure" time should be in my heated garage that the tractor is sitting inside.
Asked by: sprintman
Majic T&I Enamels may be wet sanded and power-buffed after curing approximately 30 days, and is a great way to create a very professional, showroom finish. Realize that oil / alkyd products typically cure "hard" in about 21-28 days, with hardener, 14 - 20 days when allowed to "dry" in ideal temps & humidity conditions (77 degrees F. and relative humidity @, or below, 50%). The variables that govern how quickly a paint cures include (a) applied thickness, (b) surface & air temps at time of application - and drying, (c) humidity conditions at time of application - and drying, (d) number of coats applied, (e) time allowed between coats, (f) ratios and types of solvents used for reduction, etc. etc...These variables are often beyond the control of the paint manufacture, and some are even beyond the control of the end-user - therefore, we recommend a full cure before subjecting finish to abrasive polishing.
