Re: Need help with rolling and tipping

Well might as well jump in here...Im doing the same job on decks cockpit and cabin with System Three Ws LPU which is a water based poly finish. It likes humidity but not wind or high temps. I wont even try it over 80 or if the surface has been cooking in the sun for most of the day. Strictly mornings or overcast days. The suggestions on thinning are right on but watch how you wet the tipping brush....pure thinner or pure water principle and effects the same...dilution is the idea but not too much or you have a problem again.
doesnt hurt to have a small bit thinned in a covered container for the tipping brush and to remind you of the approx "viscosity" or your working liquid prior to any exposure. Petro or water both are remarkably volatile in these conditions of wind or heat.

Anyway mines beginning to look good at 10 ft...just wet sanded with 320 for the next campaign!!! Good luck all!
