Nitro Stan Spot and Glazing Putty 9001-4 , 9002-4 quart size Nitro stan. PROCEDURES FOR REPAIRING SCRATCHES: Scratches that are too deep to be buffed out, but do not reach the metal underneath the paint may be filled in with putty. Spot and Glazing putty can eliminate shallow scratches with a minimum of sanding and priming. Spot and Glazing putty is extremely smooth. It fills and hides surface blemishes, imperfections, and irregularities that are difficult to hide with primer. It can be used to fill chips, scratches, and small dents or dings.
Surface Preparation: Wash and clean the repair area with a wax and grease removing solvent. Lightly sand the scratched area with #240 grit sand paper. This sanding will scuff the surface so that the glazing putty will adhere to the old paint. When finished clean the area with a soft cloth and wipe with a tack cloth.
Applying Glazing Putty: Apply a small amount of putty onto a clean rubber contour squeegee. With moderate pressure, spread putty, using a fast scraping motion, over the repair area. Apply in one direction only. DO NOT pass the squeegee over the same area more than once. Multiple passes may pull the putty away from the body.
Allow the putty to dry completely, usually between 20 minutes and 1 hour, depending on temperature and humidity.
Sanding Glazing Putty: Once the putty is dry, sand the area with #240 grit sand paper. Wet sand to prevent putty from clogging the paper and creating more scratches. Wet sanding also produces a smoother finish than dry sanding.
As you sand, rub your hand over the area to feel for high spots on the surface. When finished, rinse the area and wipe it dry. Clean the area with a tack cloth. Inspect the scratch for dips and voids in the putty. It may be necessary to use additional putty. Repeat the procedure as often as needed to produce a area that is free of imperfections. Remember it is best to use several thin layers of putty rather than one thick layer.
After the Spot & Glazing Putty has been sanded to an even level with the surrounding panel, wet sand with #400 sanding block. The sanding block allows even pressure over the area which prevents the formation of low spots in the finish. Sand with light pressure and long strokes. Now it is ready for THE FINISHING PRIMER.
