    Was spraying a fish today & the wet look gloss was making fish look white in a way. I've never had it to do that before. Can anyone tell me what they think the problem is.
     
  2. I would say you are putting to much on at one time. I have had the same thing happen myself, i let it dry and it cleared right up. I use several light coats now instead of drowning it with one coat.

    possible moisture in air, or could even be caused by high humidity, as joinerswildlifecreations said, it should clear up on its on.
     
  5. What do you have for a moisture trap on the air line?
    Some semi - urethane's are very sensitive to moisture. If your compressor is away from the spray area the airline acts like a condenser, the moisture can and will get in the airline even with a trap at the compressor.
    You need another trap near the spray gun and maybe a filter on the spray gun

    Dry air is the key, you may need to even add some lacquer thinner to the two part clear to help the moisture evaporate. The solvents in the lacquer thinner will bind with the moisture and in most cases evaporate immediately. Use a fast lacquer thinner for best results.
