    T0001 is usually used in Awlgrip and Awlcraft 2000 Topcoats. T0001 is also recommended for use in Quik-Grip Primer. Awlgrip reducers are chosen according to spray or brush application and anticipated temperature.

    Use T0001 in AWLGRIP® / AWLCRAFT® 2000 Top coats when application and cure temperatures are between 60°F to 70°F (16°C to 21°C) and 80°F to 90°F (27°C to 32°C). At 60°F to 70°F (16°C to 21°C), T0001 will keep the paint film open for good flow but evaporate fast enough to provide adequate dry and dust-free times. At higher temperatures, the solvency of T0001 helps maximize atomization. Its fast evaporation rate allows the solvent to exit the film before skinning occurs, avoiding solvent entrapment or solvent "pop"

    General Information:

    All of the listed reducers for Awlgrip and Awlcraft 2000 Topcoats can be blended with each other in any ratio to fine tune flow and
    evaporation rates. Most Awlgrip and Awlcraft 2000 Topcoats recommend up to25% reduction. The reduction percentage is calculated
    from the combined total of the base component and converter component. Mixing a quart of base and a quart of converter yields 2
    quarts of mixed base and converter: 25% would be 1/2 quart of reducer.

    Examples of total mix quantities for 1:1 and 2:1 base to converter ratios are as follows:

    • 1:1 mix products
      • Reduction: 25%
      • Color Base 12 oz.
      • Converter 12 oz.
      • Reducer 6 oz.
      • Total Mix 30 oz.
    • 2:1 mix products
      • Reduction: 25%
      • Color Base 12 oz.
      • Converter 6 oz.
      • Reducer 4.5 oz.
      • Total Mix 22.5 oz.

    For specific reduction recommendations see individual product data sheets.

    NOTE: At higher temperatures, reducers evaporate faster. When painting in hot conditions increasing the amount of reducer in the mix by 5-10% will help compensate for this factor.
