Default Propionate

Has anyone used it to seal their plugs before paint?

Too much work to get a final product that's still not as good as one that's been epoxy heat sealed.

Thanks... I'm going to try the epoxy. The Propionate did seem like allot of work with almost a dozen and a half dips. Rick

I think for the propionate pellets to dissolve properly, you need either acetone or virgin lacquer thinner, neither of which is a particularly friendly chemical to have around the home. Disposal, if there is any, could be a problem.

i use it and i dont think its a lot of work 1 dip for 20 min and your done.

the way you guys are reading it is if your looking to use it as a sealer and a top coat.

when in a pinch i can even start to prime 20 min after dipping.

so thats 40 min and ready to paint pretty good if you ask me.

have done 100's of plugs with no problems.

i did not use the directions it came with i did try but was not working out for me so i did some testing of my own and found the mix that works for me.

I make smaller fresh stuff, so my experience may differ from yours. I use it (the small white cups and virgin lacquer mix) to seal baits that I'm first working on. It lets me work up 1/2 dozen protos and play with them to see if I'm in the ballpark or not. The white color lets you see it well, and a black sharpie down the back allows me to see roll, etc.
