Color Preserver

Rate this topic

4 posts in this topic

Hi Al,

I applied Gudebrod color preserver to some windings and it went on very thick and uneven. I am not familiar with this product and in fear of poor results I removed the excess with alcohol and paper towels. It seems like I got some penetration into the threads, but I think it may need more. Should this color preserver be thick? Should I dare try another coat, or should I use a different brand?

Thanks

Frank

Frank,

 

I am guessing you are using Gudebrod 811 CP. That is the clear stuff and needs to be cut with denatured alcohol. You want a 75% solution, which is 3 parts CP and 1 part alcohol.

 

Mix the solution thorough, apply and then remove any excess with your squeezed out brush.

 

Give it two thin coats in this way, waiting 12 hours between each coat. Then wait 24 hours before applying your finish.

 

You should be happy with the results.

 

Al

Thank you very much for your quick responce. Yes the color preserver is product #811. I thought it was too thick. Can I use 70% Isopropyl alcohol or must it be denatured alcohol?

Thanks

Frank
