I have a Concours gun that I tried some TCP Single Stage Acrylic Urethane with, and got some moderate orange peel. I was shooting at 40lbs, at 12 to 18 inches, with about 10% reducer at about 72 degrees.. I was told I should not have used reducer, as the paint would dry too fast and ‘not flow out’?? The paint seemed a bit thick which is why I added a little reducer.. I used the specified amount of activator also..
Any ideas? I am worried that I cannot use this gun, because I will not accept orange peel after all of my painstaking hours of prep work!!
