It’s that time of year when temperatures begin to decline, Fall is in the air, and the thought of snow (in some parts) begins to creep into your head. Hopefully you’re also beginning to consider changing your reducer and hardener choices to reflect your cooler environment. As temperatures decrease, using slower, high temp hardeners and reducers may have negative impacts on your paint films. Problems such as extended flash and dry times, sags and runs, and even poor metallic orientation may all be caused by using too slow of a reducer or hardener for your cooler environment.

So as temperatures begin to fall, be aware of your choices. Use the proper reducers and hardeners for your environment to insure a productive and successful paint job!
