    Hi Jason,
    A couple of questions about EkoPoxy. I would like to mix by weight, do you have the ratios for doing that? The calendar has been moving quicker than I have, so having the recommended temperature for spraying will be hard to do. What will happen if I am at 50-55F ? I am not spraying surfaces, only framework if that matters.
    Thanks,
    Al

    Is the Viscosity cup essential? If so where can I purchase one?

    Directions are on the can to mix by weight… It’s not critical so I just divide part A by 5 and mix it good for a few minutes before thinning to what ever works with the gun you’re painting with. If it’s too thick and you can’t seem to get it to atomize just add more water. It normally takes about the same amount of water as catalyst but no more than that. The epoxy is supposed to be thicker and needs to be shot through a 1.4-1.6 mm tip

    Keep the paint and primer above 60 degrees before mixing and yes You can spray in the 55 deg temps.

    Practice before painting real airplane parts so you don’t have to sand and re-prime/paint

    Jason
