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

  • Makes paint flow easy with minimal tip-dry.

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.
