Duracoat is a brand of catalyzed polyurethane.
It should be sprayed on, but still works with a brush.
You need the correct primer for the type of metal, the poly itself and the catalyst to mix with it, and thinner to reduce it/clean up.
Duracoat has a website that will explain it and sell you the materials.

Make sure you clean your gun really good with a degreaser that doesn't leave any residue like TruStrip, otherwise the duracoat chemicals will not bond properly when applied.

Do you need to strip your marker of the original paint?

a quality certified paintmask...harsh stuff to breath in!!

3M makes a good one



*seriously...UNLESS you have previous knowledge with airbrushing paints, spray equipment, the right chemicals and a days time. It is A LOT easier, more economical to send
something to BIG BONE and get it painted right.

some DIY's out there can relate. Some DYI's out there know paints and have equipment to paint their own things correctly.

To walk into this type of deal blindly can be more costly in the long run. Spend some money and send it to a Pro. :blink:
it will cost you the same amount to buy the paints (duracoat) and spray equipment.

IF the original paint is in good shape then NO!

you can spray duracoat onto clean, bare metal. I prefer to apply it to annodized surfaces, or on top of a factory paintjob/powdercoating.

as far as I know, there's no duracoat primer out there.
