Createx paint freezing?

6 posts in this topic

Don't know why not. I wouldn't throw away all my airbrush paint if it froze sitting in my garage, unless I tried it afterwards and found it wouldn't shoot or adhere after thorough mixing.

Left createx paint in workshop had no heat got down to -6f paint froze. Can it still be used in airbrush after thawing?

Hard to say. Spray it on a scrap lure or something and heat cure it as usual, then see if it scratches off very easily. If it plugs up your gun right off the bat, it's garbage. Most waterborne coatings can't take a freeze-thaw. Some are rated by thaw cycles, meaning you can freeze-thaw them several times before you destroy the emulsion.

well tested paint it seems to be okay. did not have any problem with it scratching off after heat curing. did have a little bit of splatter, but i think it may be just my airbrush, have a cheap-o, will be getting a better one. thanks again.
