GENERAL INFORMATION

Shimrin2® is the 2nd generation of the proven Shimrin® Basecoat technology introduced in 1982. Shimrin2® is the next generation of ground-breaking universal basecoats from House of Kolor. Through new innovative polymer chemistry we are able to meet and exceed waterborne with a solvent based system designed for Kustom Painting. S2-25 Jet Black and S2-26 Bright White are Shimrin2® universal basecoats that may cleared for a final finish, or used as a foundation for Shimrin2® standard basecoats including Kandy Basecoats, and your own Kustom Kreations. The Jetest black and the brightest white are a must-have on every painters bench. Shimrin2® remains a solvent base system yet meets all VOC rules coast to coast including California.

IMPORTANT NOTES

In Custom Painting, Sealers are not an option, they are a must. They have 3 functions:
1) They greatly improve adhesion between the substrate and the base coat.
2) They make the vehicle one color thereby reducing the number of coats of base, saving you money.
3) They greatly improve color hold out and finish quality.
SUBSTRATE
• KD3000 Series DTS Foundation Surfacer Sealers
• KS, KD, KP Series Primers and Sealers

PREPARATION

Please be aware that Shimrin® / Shimrin2® bases, Kandy’s and Klears can be susceptible to staining or bleeding from polyester body fillers, putties, fiberglass resins and some primers. To prevent staining, Please refer to the tech pages on KD3000 Series or KP Series Primers. It is important to maintain at least a 2 dry mil film thickness of KD3000 Series DTS Foundation Surfacer Sealer or, KP series over all fillers and putties.

SANDING THE SUBSTRATE

For all substrates
• Dry Sanding: FIPA grade = 280P to 320P grit (CAMI grade = 240 to 280 grit)
• Wet Sanding: FIPA grade = 600P to 800P grit (CAMI grade = 400 to 500 grit)
NOTE: Typically sealers do not need to be sanded. Do not seal until you are ready to apply the paint. This is where your chemical bond begins.
