Q: Can Maxx be color mixed, if so are there mixing charts avaiable? I am wanting a darker Royal blue.

Asked by:  - 5/27/2015

A: Yes, you can mix KBS MAXX colors together before the activator is added. You can add some Pitch Black to Blue Mayhem to get a darker blue.

Q: I was wondering once I would apply rust seal on my boat trailer what would be the wait time or period that I would need to apply the maxx topcoat?

Asked by:  - 8/10/2015

A: Ideally, apply KBS MAXX once the second or final coat of RustSeal is dry-to-the-touch and does not leave a fingerprint (usually 3-10 hours depending on temperature and humidity).

Rating The best I have come across
Previously used other expensive acrylic products that turned out to not be UV resistant, had an 8:1:1 ratio to mess with, and didn't look that good when finished. Sprayed my f250 frame I had previously sandblasted, Epoxy primered, and acrylic coated . Cleaned it with kbs clean (sprayed then rinsed before dry) got the gun out and made a pot. Sprayed like a dream. Covered like crazy. Black as could be. Looks fanominal. Super glazed shine. Hard as steel it was sprayed on.

Rating KBS Maxx + 10% acetone via TP tools turbine sprayer.
I used a TP tools turbine hvlp to spray KBS Maxx with 10% acetone at about 84 degrees and the results were great. One thing that shocked me was how long the pot life was in the cup.

Rating tough as nails
Let me start out by stating my background, I went to school when I was in high school for automotive refinishing, after that I spent years refinishing cars with all brands of paint, I later moved on to refin boats, power coating and then running a body shop. So when it comes to paint I have had my share of experience. with this being said I started a large welding table build and needed a paint to hold up to all diff obstacles. I have used the normal choices por15, rust bullet but have found flaws in them. not this time I used this paint and have beat the hell out of it I sprayed it and it flowed out great. I would recommend it any day.

Rating Rust Seal and KBS Maxx on Bronze in Saltwater
I applied a system of Rust Seal covered by KBS Maxx on a bronze anchor platform stanchion that was peeling old paint. Used 2 coats of each and the end result was a sharp looking part. This had been a real eyesore on my boat. The system went on easily, recoated quickly and looks good so far. Time will tell in the tough saltwater environment but I have total confidence. The one thing I would recommend is to remove any masking after each coat. I waited until the end and one little section of paint peeled off. It's a thick, tough coating when done. I like it for tough applications.
