Okay I have sat here my whole career listening to when we will all be using finger paint on cars. The reallity is, it is all just another way to change the industry in order to boost sales. PERIOD. I mean really think about all those new products......$$$$$$$
The fact is, waterborne doesn't work. If it did the clear coat is what would be waterborne. Thats where the the harsh chemicals are. Harsh to the earth and harsh to the user,employee,i.e man.
The purpose is to cut down on harsh chemicals that eventually get back into the earth and the environment. We all know where te V.O.C.s come from, the clear. Simply changing the color coat to waterborne does nothing but make me have two gun cleaning machines,two types of thinner for clean up,extreme booth temps, and a whole new paint system , just to "look" like we are "green". You can change a pigs dress but it is still a pig.
Its all looks good for the paint supply companies,and the lobbyers in congress. You can Wag the Dog all you want, the truth is until clearcoats are waterborne Nothing has changed.
Oh Yeah,they couldn't have changed the base too much, 'cause last time I checked you can't paint acrylic over WATER! or anything else.
Is it really?
