Painting on Glass with GAC 200

  1. Interesting.. Have you tested GAC 200 with water as an isolation coat for Rigid Surfaces to provide more scratch resistance?

    • Hi Richard,
      Yes. We applied GAC 200 over paint that had been diluted with water as a topcoat. The layers were allowed to dry for about a week. It helped resist scratching when dry, but when we wet the surface and continued to scratch, the paint layer broke apart in less than a minute. So, it provided some durability, but was still vulnerable when it got wet.
      Hope this answers your question. Take care.

  2. Apologies Greg, I phrase my question really badly. I meant using GAC 200 with the addition of water (as you used to recommend with soft gel+water) for an isolation coat on rigid surfaces.

    • OK thanks for the re-state Richard. It certainly is possible to use GAC 200 on its own as such. But as mentioned it does not level very well, so hard to get it to not leave brush strokes. And diluting beyond 50% seems to raise the possibility of getting some haziness in the film. But if you can get it on smooth with less water dilution, then it can provide a nice tack free surface. Also have to apply and let dry in a warmer environment! If you give it a try, let us know what you think.
      Be well!
      Greg
