Diamond Blue Basecoat
is a diamond pearl that reflects a sparkly and vibrant Blue hue in the sun and when used at a low load, is hardly noticeable in the shade. This color is great to accent the base coat whether it be a solid base or a pearl base, but can also create many amazing finishes when mixing or layering with other pearls. Diamond Pearls are "White Particle" pigments, so are sometimes more difficult to spray when over black. When going for full coverage over black, there is a fine line of color and starting to look "milky". Over black we recommend only using subtle or medium effect.
All of our Alpha Custom Color Basecoats are bound in a specifically formulated binder that has pigment control (to avoid striping or mottling), great UV Resistance, crystal clear, and great pearl suspension.
This color is also available in aerosol spray cans and dry pearl pigment for peelable paints and other non - automotive paint applications.
1) Subtle: Best for slight effect that will provide a sparkle and slight pop of color to your base color or substrate. (provides a black / color flip effect with 1-2 coats over black basecoat)
2) Medium: Best over base colors that you want more pop of color and sparkle. Over black this is what would be used to get more of a full coverage look. Over other colors this is ideal for effect and sparkle.
3)Heavy: This gives the most pop of color and sparkle. Ideal over white or any other base color other than black. This should not be sprayed over black, as it will "White out" quickly.
 Type of paint:    1 color pearl paint basecoat (Translucent)
 Micron Size: 20-200μm
 Mixing Ratio: Mix Ratio: 1:1:5% (Basecoat:hr13xx: HH57)
 Coverage : Best as effect
 Basecoat Recommendation : Black Sealer for full coverage or ANY BASECOLOR FOR A " GHOST" EFFECT

We highly recommend using the HR13xx reducer & HH57 hardener. Other high end reducer & hardeners may work as well, though have not been tested. 
Hardener is optional in our basecoat but highly recommended as it makes the basecoat even more durable, lay even flatter off the gun, and overall a better finish. For optimum durability and adhesion BC may be mixed with 5% basecoat hardener then reduced 1:1.Keep in mind, if you add hardener to the basecoat, it will catalyze and not be able to be put back in the can and stored. 
Colors may vary depending on computer and mobile screen color settings. In order to ensure that the color meets your expectations, we highly recommend purchasing a sample size first.

Different than pictured

What I received was not a base coat but more like a clear pearl, nothing even close to color that is pictured. I called and they said something about it being miss labeled but it is what I ordered. Not what I ordered and offered no refund.
