Interlux Pre Kote and Brightside Paint Temperature

Postby riverron on Fri Oct 26, 2018 9:42 am

I am chomping at the bit to do some painting this weekend. I have already painted the bottom with Interlux 33 and that turned out pretty good. For the side panels I plan to use Interlux Pre Kote ( 2 Coats) and then Interlux Brightside per the manual.

The specs on the Pre Kote say the low end is 50 degrees. My garage now is about 58-60 degrees. We have a Noreaster going through tonight, so the humidity will be high.

Did anyone paint their Pocketship with this cool of temperature? Is it too cold?
I also read concerns about humidity, but is that a real issue if you are in your garage painting?

Saturday/Sunday is calling for high 60, so I was hoping to at least get 1 coat of Pre-Kote on possibly 2, but maybe not since I have to sand between coats.

Thoughts?

Hi Ron

Sorry, can’t help - but I’m just north of you here in Baltimore and it’s calling for warm/dry conditions this week...just fyi.

Thanks Jimmy. I decided against painting and wound up working most of the weekend anyway. I am going to try to take off Thursday to do some painting! High around 75 with no rain. I also bought me a temp/humidity monitor for the garage to monitor.
