Hey Guys,

What is the bottom line temperature for both paints?

Thanks, T-Bucket Bob Smile

I don't know about rusto but I have done regular auto paint in the low 40s. Just takes forever (it seems) to set up. I'm sure somebody else that knows more will be along shortly.

when I was doing a lot of spraying, I liked it best in the low 60's. I don't think I would want to either spray or roll much below 50 degrees.

I've rolled it in the dead of winter....warm paint, cold car... paint, when mixed with the mineral spirits, flows pretty well with that combination...

I ROLLED RUSTO TOPSIDE IN 75-85 DEGREE WEATHER IN SUMMER, QUITE A BIT OF ORANGE PEEL.

DID SOME IN FALL AROUND 60 DEGREES AND IT DRIED SLOW AND LEVELED OUT LIKE IT WAS SPRAYED ON. VERY LITTLE ORANGE PEEL.

MIXTURE WAS 2:1, TOPSIDE IS THINNER THAN REGULAR RUSTO.

TEMPERATURE MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE, HIGH TEMPS DRY TOO FAST AND PAINT DOES NOT HAVE TIME TO FULLY LEVEL. LOW TEMPS CAN KILL THE GLOSS TO A SEMI GLOSS OR A WHITE FILM.

I agree with 63falconconvert, I paint nothing below 50, rusto,topside, acrylic enamel, basecoat clearcoat, they do make different hardner's for different temp's but I have not had much luck with any painting below 50 degree's no matter what,and what rock and roll said is correct,moisture is the enemy of gloss,low temp's cause condensation,which kill's the gloss of any paint!!!! agree
