Ok whats fisheye eliminator??????Originally posted by Chipmaker
I assume your referring to Dupont "Centari". Yes, Dupont Centari is a premium grade acrylic enamel. If you add catalyst hardener to it, it would be just about equal to Duponts top grade Imron. Centari has been around for many many years and it just may be one of the most widely used acrylic enamels in use by automotive refinishers today. I sprayed my first car with it back when I was a teenager and thats quite a ong time ago, so its a well proven product during all these years. Its commonly used in the basic colors for fleet painting of trucks etc.
If you spray this or any other automotive enamel, make sure you use fisheye eliminator in it, as it will possibly save you a lot of grief. Just consider ficheye eliminator as cheap insurance.
Its a additive that you put in paint to keep it from fisheyeing. Which means it looks like a fish eye might be one or alot grouped together. Mainly cause by oils from your fingers or other contaminates.Originally posted by caseman-d
Ok whats fish eye eliminator??????
As Jodyand said, it stops or elimiates fisheyes in paint...You know how water can bead up or how water reacts when it contacts a drop of oil it sort of forms a ring or circle, well that is possible for paint to do from any source of oil.........be it from the spray gun, compressor or just a droplet in the air. WD-40 is notoriously hard to get rid of and items that ever had WD40 on them really need a dose of fisheye eliminator. It essentially does to paint what detergent does to water........it makes it flow out better and have less surface tension so it does not try and move away from a spec of residue. Usually really heavy bodied paints have enough body to keep it in place until it starts to tack, but most automotive and fine finish paints are a lighter body, so its pretty common and cheap to use it as a safeguard in having a botched paint job...Originally posted by bigallis
