On the On30 forum at the Bachmann site is an interesting post. It seems Krylon may have made a formula change that has an effect on compatibility between "old" and the "new" paints, in particular the matte clear finish. The thing to look for, besides new packaging, is a "5" before the four-digit color number above the bar code.

RE: "New" Krylon compatibility

Found out the hard way, painted a cab with new Krylon, went to put the old matte finish and it wrinkled all over.......Really do not like the new nozzles either, much higher volume of spray, much easier to overspray. I think i will be looking for a new supplier.

RE: "New" Krylon compatibility

This happened to me a couple of weeks ago. It had never happened before so I assumed I did something wrong, but this explains it, thanks.

RE: "New" Krylon compatibility

Wow, I had better check my supply. These are the white and red cans from the art supply store? I did note the Bachman site claims the new matte is a laquer paint. If this is true I am wondering why it is causing such problems, if I remember correctly Testors dulcote is a laquer as well and I have used it on my smaler scale models with no problems. I have always used VERY light coats in mutiple layers. This might help with the wrinkling--though I am not sure I will want to test this on my next project.

RE: "New" Krylon compatibility

This is a slightly edited answer, referring specifically to using #1131 Matte over #51602 Flat Black (new product), which I received from Krylon, --"these products are compatible, but the paint does need sufficient time to cure before the clear is applied over it. Ideally, it should be cured for 48 hours, and that assumes ideal drying conditions. Temperature, humidity and air circulation (or lack of it) will all factor into how quickly the product cures>"

I have been using Krylon spray paints for almost forty years with success, including on live steam engines. However, I have had occasional problems, such as wrinkling, when I have become impatient regarding conditions or laying on thin coats. From the reply above, it appears that the "new" products are more sensitive to this, and require more patience. Since I recently stocked up on primers and blacks for a newly rebuilt live steamer, I will be doing test spraying on samples to check things out, once the weather improves.

What the heck happened to my post?
I went back and tried to fix it, and all of my type was inverted - horizontally and vertically!

Strangest thing...


Anyway, thanks for taking the time to post this, Larry. It's good information to know.

Take care,

Matt

Matt, With my dyslexicia I hardly noticed there was a melborp!
Larry, I'm glad to have the warning about Krylon as that is what I am using on my Mason Bogie.

Del, if you start delivering my custom graphics orders like that, "You are fired!". Now I'm worried--I can read it perfectly.

Del:

You must hvae gnoe to the smae shcool as my sons.

But they both have degrees. Neat wrinkle, let your composition dry longer, won't ripple as much.


The Krylon advisory is good, thanks, will watch mixing newer stock with my older stuff.

I don't want wrinkles on the models, I have enough on me to satisfy.


John.
