106 BASECOAT COLOR APPLICATION—SOLVENT PD-1715 Caution: Wear the proper safety protection when sanding, cleaning, mixing and spraying all materials included within this process. 1 Verify color by preparing a sprayout card following PD-1631, Identify Color Formula to confirm the correct number of coats needed to achieve color match and the correct G-shade of primer surfacer and/or sealer. 2 Ensure that all panels to be painted have been prepared according to process document PD-1590, Sanding Primer Surfacer. 3 Apply solvent basecoat color (reference PDS for more information). a. Apply the number of coats as indicated by the sprayout card. Follow PDS directions regarding flash time and other application guidelines. b. Basecoat activator may be added to improve durability and repairability characteristics. Use should be consistent throughout basecoat application. c. Once color is achieved, color blenders can be used in final coats if needed for metallic control. IMPORTANT—Solvent basecoat color can be de-nibbed between coats by sanding with P600-P800 grit sandpaper. Use the appropriate PPG cleaner as a sanding lubricant if needed. When spraying metallic or pearl colors, 2 coats of color should be applied over sanded areas to hide any sand scratches. 4 Follow with the clearcoat application process as outlined in PD-1730.
