    Nason clear coat question

    Hey everyone. I know there are some knowledgeable people on here that have used many different products. I've been using Nason brand clear coat. More specifically, this combo





    I use this mostly to cut costs on people that dont want to pay too much for their paint jobs really or small jobs like wheels/engine bays. Honestly, for the price, ($99)it is a really great product. I just wanted to know if anyone here has used this clear and what their opinions are on it. Has anyone had bad experiences with it? Does anyone know what an over all paint job looks like after a year or two with using this clear? Also, what clears do you use and what prices. Just curious. Any info would be appreciated.

    Used a bit of this in the past_way in the past_ but it was ok. I know some independent shops that use daily for colision work. I was using UTEC for years but my friends out of the businees so back to PPG since Autobody Express just opened a Spring Hill store. PPG has a few midline priced clears that are about the same price. Just depends on what you like and whats available to you.Ive never seen any problems with these clear. The only problems Ive seen is with the super cheap crap like 5STAR--not a agood product.

    Actually they have added some clears Ive never tried yet so Im still learning. The 2:1 clear is good if you like High solids.I was told their 4;1 polyurethane clear is really good for around $100 or so--will try some soon. Its the Shopline series.

    497 the overall nason clear is better if you are painting a whole car. The 496 is good for small jobs bumpers and what not. But NASON is what master collision puts on everything. If you liked the dupont chroma clear from about 6 yrs ago this is what your buying. To me if i were cutting costs Id use it its a good Low cost alternative

    The 496 you are using is a fast clear. You can wet-sand and buff it in about two hours with no problem.

    It's great for small parts or panel painting because you can get it in and out and nib dust spots or runs the same day.

    Of course the way this stuff flashes over you would have to hammer it to get it to run much if at all.

    Yes I here the 497 is better for ever all work. Like whole cars. Its not that fast drying. Has anyone used the 497 clear at all? And what reducer would ou recomend for 70 degree weather? I've only used high temp but I dont know if thats good for this weather.

    Well the hotter it gets you gotta try slowing things down. Overalls are a real challenge to me in the middle of August! I like slow drying though to allow proper melting in. Spotting and panels are diffrent story but I find it easier to speed things than to slow flash times

    Used Nason @ Maaco, decent for the price but cant touch PPG. I shoot either the DCU2021 or the DCU2002.

    2021 i know is around 160 for a gallon then reducers and activators looking about probably 220-250 for a gallon . Both are real good clears. If you dont mind spending the money I would use D890 1 coat of that is equal to 2-3 coats of 2021-2002. I have two coats of it on my car and it looks like glass

    Thanks bro. I will look into it. The one time I used PPG, I remember it shot very heavy and looked really solid.
