    Of course you could justask the Oldbury font of all knowledge where to get cellulose red oxide from, sensibly priced in very large tins, just like the one in my garage....

I did an old Lancia Beta coupe that I had in it, sold it a few years later and saw it maybe 6 years on still looking good .

    I think 'sticky' got a bad rep as it was always used for cheap trade sprays ,lash it up and make it shiny . It has its place in the market but I wouldn't paint a quality car in it.


    It's a pig to paint over without using a barrier coat and they have limited adhesion as well . Even Commercial, as in lorries , garages use 2 K nowadays.

    You need to read the tech sheets twice dude,PPE is mandatory,not optional !,you will use much less material,if your compitant at celly application,youll end up a top painter using 2k...................MASK

    Yea now you mention it Kev i remember using "Glasurit 21 line" a guy supplied for his own vehicle,i also remember pulling a face when i found out it was thier synthetic! but ive got to say it was very good material,however because of slow curing times and recoating difficulties i would allways recomend 2k these days,Bry

    I would agree Bry, 2 pack is not dangerous if you take the right precautions, I know of people that spray Celly without a mask and tell me its ok !!! There was a report a while ago in a paint manufactorers monthly that said Celly was more dangerous than 2 pack, At the end of the day the only thing good to breathe in is air.

    Used to be a report on the wall of our paint suppliers showing the sad tale of a guy who went into kidney failure and died from not using a mask. First time at spraying as well.

    Any good paint factors should sell them, I would reccommend the 3M mask. £14 is what i pay at my local, You will know when to throw it away as you won't be able to breathe through it.
