4011 Reducer


4011 hi temp reducter
4011 Reducer is a dilutant used for thinning paint. It is compatible with and recommended as the standard thinner for all Createx paints and clears.
  • Recommended for use with all Createx Paints.

  • 4011 is a water-based thinner used to lower viscosity and promotes faster drying times and complete curing.
  • 4011 is generally added 5% - 10% per volume to paint. For small tip-sized airbrush, add 4011 Reducer in greater amounts up to 20% per volume.
  • 4011 is safer to use to over-reduce paint without seeding.
  • 4011 assists drying times by flashing water from the paint. 4011 also helps reduce tip-dry compared to diluting with water.
  • Water-based paint material containing Propylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether Acetate

  • Refer to 4011 Technical Data Sheet for more information about thinning and mixing specific color type

4020 - Reducer


4650 Automotive Reducer

  • Makes paint flow easy with minimal tip-dry.
  • Mix ratios for adding 4020 to 4011 vary, but generally: • Airbrush: Mix 4011 1:1 4020 • Spray-gun: Mix 4011 3:1 4020
  • Contains Acetone and Glycol Ethers. (flammable - can not ship via air)

  • Use only in controlled spray environments with adequate ventilation and a NIOSH / MSHA approved respirator.

4040- Bleed Checker


4030 - Balancing Clear/Mix Additive

  • 4040 Bleed Checker is a hybridized, urethane-acrylic clear used as an inter-coat intended for application over candy2o to prevent the candy2o’s dyes from bleeding into top-coated colors.

  • Apply 4040 Bleed Checker over candy2o as an inter-coat.  After 4040 has thoroughly dried (30 – 60 minutes), other colors including subsequent candy2o colors may be applied direct without scuffing.  4040 will prevent the underlying candy2o’s dye from leaching (“bleeding”) into the top-coated colors.

  • Apply 4040 Bleed Checker not reduced, straight from the bottle when applying as an inter-coat over candy2o.  Do not reduce with 4011 Reducer as it’s a solvent used with candy2o and use of it in 4040 will create a shared material between candy2o and 4040 which may allow for bleeding.

Aluminum Base Colors are actual aluminum with unique properties separate from other Auto Air Colors.  They’re highly reflective, making them an ideal base for candy colors.  They also work excellent as a standalone silver finish; 4102 Aluminum Base Medium is an incredibly brilliant, show quality finish.

Start with 6013 AutoBorne Silver Sealer.
When painting large panels, bike tanks & fenders, complete vehicles, apply 4100 Series Aluminum Bases as a mid-coat over AutoBorne Sealer Aluminum to achieve an even metallic orientation.  When applied over a black or non-metallic base as a base color, 4100 Series Aluminum can appear splotchy on side-cast views despite an even application that looks well orientated on direct views; this is a unique characteristic of the aluminum flake which makes them different compared to 4300 Series Silvers.  4100 Series Aluminums are spectacular silvers, however for large applications; best results are achieved applying them over a silver ground coat.

Aluminum Bases are sensitive to touch.  Do not wipe clean or scuff after painting as any direct contact will create visible streak marks in the final finish due to the aluminum flakes being bent & crushed when wiped.  The aluminum flakes are brilliant but are much different to work with compared to Auto Air 4300 Series silvers.  Applying a clear top-coat or candy mid-coat is recommended soon after Aluminum Bases have cured.  Apply 4004 Transparent Base or 4030 Auto Air Inter-Coat if extended time is planned before top-coating as inter-coat will protect from direct contact when cleaning prior to clear.

Coverage:  Aluminum Bases cover well as they’re applied as a pearl mid-coat over a black sealer base.  100% coverage is not intended as dimension is created by allowing some of the black base to be visible in the final finish.  On average, 2 – 3 light coats with a full sized spray gun over a black base is required.  Avoid excessive material build-up as this creates mottling and a splotchy finish. Refer to Hard Surface Application Guide’s Material Usage project-specified material estimate.

Aluminum Bases are best applied with a spray-gun or large tip-sized airbrush.  Refer to Hard Surface Application Guide for further application information.

4104 color swatch

4104 Quicksilver is 6061-T6 Aluminum, a highly reflective, aircraft-grade aluminum.

Do not reduce. Spray directly from the bottle around 20 psi inlet. Quicksilver Chrome has excellent adhesion direct to any surface and can be applied direct to glossy, non-sanded surfaces such as powder-coat, urethane finishes, plastics, and any substrate.

Apply over a gloss black surface, such as 4258 Auto Air Gloss Black

Apply Quicksilver Chrome in very, very light coats. It’s essential that some of the black base be visible through the Quicksilver Chrome even on the direct view. It cannot be stressed enough how light Quicksilver Chrome is applied; too much and the brilliant chrome effect is lost. Anodized Colors – Mix Quicksilver Chrome 1:1 candy2o for a true, brilliant anodized color.
