THE CHEMISTRY OF TRU-COLOR
All paints are composed of pigments and/or dyes held in a binder (polymer) which adheres to the item being painted suspended or dissolved in a liquid. Some paints are water based (latex type), enamels (lacquer base) and some are solvent based. Polymers used to produce paints can be acrylics, rubber (latex), epoxies, urethane and various others. Polymers form the matrix that the pigments/dyes are dispersed in that allows the color to “stick” to the item being painted. Without the polymers (which by definition are “plastic”) the pigments/dyes would rub off.
TRU-COLOR PAINT IS A SOLVENT BASED PAINT WITH AN ACRYLIC POLYMER USED AS THE BINDING AGENT WHICH ADHERES VERY WELL TO PLASTIC OR METAL MODELS, WHEN THOSE MODELS ARE PROPERLY PREPARED. THE PIGMENTS AND/OR DYES USED TO PRODUCE THE CORRECT COLORS ARE VERY FINELY GROUND SO THAT THEY DO NOT CLOG AIR-BRUSHES.
TO INSURE PROPER ADHESION FOR PLASTIC MODELS – WASH THE MODEL IN MILD SOAPY WATER TO REMOVE RESIDUAL PROCESSING OILS AND DIRT, RINSE THOROUGHLY WITH CLEAN WATER AND LET AIR DRY. IT IS NOW READY TO BE PAINTED. FOR METAL MODELS (BRASS FOR EXAMPLE), SAND BLAST OR TREAT THE METAL SURFACE IN SOME FASHION TO GIVE TRU-COLOR PAINT A PREPARED SURFACE TO ADHERE TO (ed. we have had success using white vinegar to etch the brass surface followed by a warm, soapy bath and allowed to air dry). THEN USE OUR PRIMER, TRU-COLOR PAINT 007 OR 256, AND AIRBRUSH THE MODEL, ALLOW SUFFICIENT DRYING TIME AND THEN PAINT THE MODEL WITH THE DESIRED COLOR(S).
