As most know, you will get the best finish when you spray metallic coatings because the process of spraying allows the metallic pigments in the KBS MAXX to float to the surface creating the metallic sparkle. That said, spraying KBS MAXX is not always an option, and we get that. An extremely popular brushing technique for brushing metallic coatings is to brush out the KBS MAXX, let the coat cure for a few minutes, then lightly brush the surface again in one direction which will help float the metallic pigments to the surface giving you a nice metallic sparkle finish. As with all painting techniques, practice makes perfect.
Yes, KBS MAXX features Advanced Cross-Linked Coatings Technology making KBS MAXX extremely resistant to scratching and chipping, while being flexible. KBS MAXX is an excellent choice when a UV stable, single stage, crazy tough coating is needed.
KBS MAXX is an incredibly durable coating meaning KBS MAXX is a high solids coating and we do highly recommend mechanically mixing the KBS MAXX Base before you mix in the KBS MAXX Activator. Mixing with a mechanical mixer (versus a stir stick) ensures that all the components of KBS MAXX are mixed back together which will give you the best looking and most durable finish.
We have consistently found that a mixer like one of these attached to a variable speed drill works best:
If you do not have one, you can find them on Amazon or at most local hardware, home improvement, or paint stores.
