Conestoga wood finish with AAA5/27
I use Conestoga doors pre finished and usually have several items to finish myself. I buy their stains and top coats. Anyone use their products with an AAA setup. They do not recommend thinning their CV clear coat
Thin it so it sprays correctly out of your gun. Check the mil thickness and calculate how many coats you will need. Usually thinning less then 10% will keep you at 3 coats or less.
I think the reason why they don't recommend thinning is because you might take the finish out of compliance.
But, I always thin my Conestoga finish regardless of whether I am shooting it through my gravity guns or my AAA system. I always reduce it in multiples of 3% which makes it easy for me since it is also a 3% catalyst ratio. Reduction is based upon temperature, the spray system I am using and how it is flowing out. Because of my thinning, I generally spray two topcoats.
BTW, if you are using pre-finished components from Conestoga like me, a AAA system might be overkill. See my post above.
I hope this helps.
