Material does not gel in can. Material is too cold or too warm. Slowly bring material to room temperature. Keep in mind that once the material is mixed, you have approximately 15- 20 minutes to spray the gallon. You must discard the material if you go beyond this time limit. Refer to Storage section of IP 1000 Reference Guide.
  Overmixed. Options are to spray material on the horizontal areas of the surface or discard material. Refer to Mixing section of IP 1000 Reference Guide.
  Too much pigment. Options are to spray material on the horizontal areas of the surface or discard material. Refer to Color pigment into B-side, section of IP 1000 Reference Guide.
Pigment looks coarse and uneven while mixing. Wrong pigment base. Check pigment base. Contact Willow Automotive for clarification. Use IP 1000 pigments, PPG® pigments, or other automotive pigments (pure pigment only).
Material has inconsistent color or spots on surface. Jiffy Mixer is not clean. Within 24 hours of original spray, spray surface area with Top Coat #6 or IP 1000. After 24 hours of original spray, spray surface area with Primer 450. Allow 30 minutes drying time and then spray with Top Coat #6 or IP 1000™. Clean blades on jiffy mixer after each use and refer to Colour pigment into B-side section of IP 1000 Reference Guide.
Coating still soft next day or several days later. Too cold. Allow liner to cure at 65°F or higher. Heat spray area to cure at 65°F or higher.
  Pigment type. Allow variance in curing time by pigment color. Red, Dark Green, Blues, and Grays are slower to cure in cold temperatures.
  Ratio problem. Remove IP 1000 and respray IP 1000™. Contact Willow Automotive for clarification. Refer to Mixing section of IP 1000 Reference Guide.
Hairline cracking. Too cold while curing. Clean surface area with M.E.K., reprimer with Primer 450. Allow 30 minutes drying time. Respray a thin coat of IP 1000 with the 4mm tip on the hopper gun. Heat spray area to 65°F or higher.
  Too much material layered too quickly. Clean surface area with M.E.K., reprimer with Primer 450. Allow 30 minutes drying time. Respray a thin coat of IP 1000 with the 4mm tip on the hopper gun. Spray IP 1000 in even coats to build thickness.
