4030 Mix Additive | Balancing Clear:

An essential additive that enhances spray performance & paint adhesion. Mix with all Auto Air Colors prior to use.

4030 is a non-catalyzed, polyurethane, water-based clear for mixing with colors for improved performance and coating integrity upon curing.

  • 4030 works as an adhesion promoter when mixed with Auto Air Colors, perfect for painting plastics, vinyl and most any surface that is difficult for paint to adhere to.
  • Mix 4030 Balancing Clear 10 - 25% per volume or more with Auto Air Colors for improved performance on non-porous, hard surfaces.
  • 4030 mixed with Auto Air Colors creates an acrylic-urethane paint which greatly improves spray performance.
  • Leveling, flow and coating formation is improved when 4030 is mixed with Auto Air Colors.
  • Auto Air Colors dry hard and durable quickly when mixed with 4030.
  • 4030 appears milky in solution but dries clear.

Works as claimed. Tough finish.

I delayed painting when I learned of this additive and I am glad I waited for it to arrive. The project is a touch up to a motorcycle helmet, which requires high opacity colours that match the originals and that have a durable finish plus good adhesion. I am spraying a home made mixture of thick, high opacity acrylics thinned with water and approx. 5% wetting agent. To that #4030 is added as 25% maximum, per the literature, of the final spraying dilution.
It drips out of its bottle a bit gooey, like egg white, but it doesn't seem to change the overall consistency or opacity once it's stirred in. I don't shake it because that will cause the wetting agent to foam.
You can do a quick test of brushing or spraying onto paper and comparing how the dried paint with #4030 is "plasticized" with a definite stretchy film like property when you tear the paper. I saw a video of skateboards painted with and without #4030 Mix Additive, showing the difference in abrasion resistance and that was about enough to convince me to use this product.

I haven't tested the adhesive benefits. But in my brief experience, it won't make up for a surface that has not been prepped well enough, as I learned the hard way upon lifting masking tape from the previous colour that was sprayed 1 or 2 days before.
