PaintScratch Waterbased Touch Up Paint Directions

Many new touch up paints are now being made with waterbased ingredients. These paints cannot be thinned with automotive lacquer thinner and require a special thinner.

This thinner is called Envirobase High Performance Color T494 and is available from PaintScratch.com. If you are planning on spraying waterbased paint, please read these directions thoroughly. This will give you the correct thinning ratios, spray tip size and temperature requirements.

Drying Times for Spray Cans
We tested the waterborne aerosol here at 70 degrees and it dried in 10 mins. Higher humidity will result in higher drying time.
