Permalac is a fast drying lacquer. This characteristic can cause condensation blush, webbing, or orange peel. In order to avoid those outcomes it is recommend that you thin Permalac when spraying, or when applying during hot weather. It's also recommended that you thin Permalac when applying over certain porous metal substrates to ensure penetration.
Deciding which Peacock thinner to use with Permalac is largely dependent on ambient conditions and application methods. When thinned correctly, Permalac should set dry to the touch in 5 to 10 minutes. This gives the coating enough time to flow smooth, while still promoting a fast turnaround time.
