I am painting rigid plastic.  It's not very flexible, but it does bend easily if force is applied.  So I had the "Flex" additive put in.  I don't know if this is an application or drying problem, but after two hours I went to touch the surface, and it came off like a powder.  Even on the overspray areas of the newspaper I laid down, I would wipe my finger and it would be powdery.

Powdery Paint
This is similar to the spider vein problem. The temperature was too hot to spray and the paint has dried in mid-air before it had a chance to adhere to the surface. Solution - Sand the powdery paint off, wait until it is below 80 degrees and reapply. Also, the flex would have nothing to do with the paint not adhering as we only add flex to the clearcoat, not the basecoat paint.

The spray can label says:
Infiniti G35 AX6 2004
Redline C (Add Flex)
    (Add Flex)

Nothing is checked out of the four boxes.

Does this mean I got a double helping of Flex when I wasn't supposed to have any?

No, in fact flex is never added to the basecoat at all, just the clearcoat.

I sprayed my fender about 60 days or so ago and my hand left an impression in the paint when I leaned on it today. Shouldn't it be fully cured by now?


Just checked -it's been 42 days but still? Anyone? Bad paint?

No clear coat. Ordered a quart of paint-sanded it off and repainted my car. Having the same problem. I laid a blanket over it the other day and the blanket made an impression in the paint. Painted 60 days ago. No clear coat either. Both paints were one step.

Once the paint is dry to the touch, it needs to be clearcoated which will firm up the paint. Try this on a scrap piece of material and see if this solves the problem.

What did you mean by "one step". Also, are directions I hope are pretty clear about needing clearcoat. (

Please substitute "one step" in my posts with Single Stage:

Single Stage Paint
Many pre-1987 vehicles were painted with single stage paint. These paints do not require a clearcoat to make them shiny so they are called Single Stage paint.  We are still able to make some single stage paint formulas. If your paint is only available in basecoat/clearcoat we will notify you by email. You must polish single stage paint with rubbing compound to achieve the proper gloss.

What exactly did you paint over? What type of primer? What was underneath the primer? Sounds like perhaps some sort of incompatibility problem.
