Directions for Use

Clean surface with denatured alcohol or fresh water. Allow surface to thoroughly dry before proceeding. Fine sand surface to be finished with the appropriate grade sandpaper based on the type of final finish required. If the surface to be finished has a sealer or primer applied, ensure that the systems are compatible with one another by preparing a test panel before proceeding.

Ensure that the existing primer/sealer have been sanded with a minimum of 400-grit sandpaper and all contamination is removed.

      David – Thank you for your comment. How long did you allow the EM6600 to cure before evaluating the final hardness?
      Deep colors such as Raven Black (and other deep colors) do require a longer cure cycle, 120+ hours at 70F, to reach good hardness. Even after this period a tendency to be somewhat softer then pastel colors can be common. Two options to improve the final hardness is, 1) add CL100 at 5% by liquid volume to the last coat of the EM6600, 2) apply one or two clear-coats of EM7000 or EM9300 over the deep color to improve scuff, mar, stack resistance.

    This is an outstanding product, that sprays well straight from the can with a 2mm tip in a turbine HVLP set up. Surface prep is key to great results. Any flaw will telegraph… while it may offer slight fill, it requires a massive amount of costs to get there. If you take care and fill in the primer stage you will see outstanding results. I use a shellac based primer sanded to 320 and then multiple coats of finish. Usually 2-3 coats of primer then 4-6 coats of Raven Black with no sanding. I use this in LA, so I’m usually 65-80 degrees and no more than 60% humidity. If I use a top coat, my final is always EM9300 in flat.

    I’ve shot about 10 gallons of this now and continue to use it with great results. I thin with a small amount of water and spray out of a 1.4mm gravity feed HVLP. It sprays well with a 1.8 or 2.0mm without thinning. I’ve tried several competitive water-based products and have come back to EMTECH. It’s thicker and more highly pigmented so it covers well in 2 coats where others require 3 or more. It dries and sands well.

    The biggest down-side to me is that it’s only available in satin sheen. This requires the addition of a topcoat to increase sheen or flattening paste to decrease sheen.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with the EM6600 Raven Black. I understand your frustrations with this product being available only in a Satin sheen – we do not have a high demand for high gloss black, so we keep the inventory simpler by offering a more popular sheen level. JW
