Is there such a thing as a hardener that can be used on enamel after
it's been applied, even if it's already cured partially? I'm looking
for something similar to spray-on activator for super glue.
I want something that can make enamel hard enough to be sanded without
the usual long wait, and neither heat nor lacquer are options. I
realize that there are two-part paints that will harden in less than a
few hours, but I'm looking for something different.
Why is heat not an option?, What are you painting? and what paint
material are you using that you are calling an enamel?, An enamel is
just a posh name for a hard glossy paint.
You can add accelerators or reducers to synthetic, alkyd or polyurethane
paints, Terebine for example on these paits will speed up the drying
process by several hours but the inner surface will always take longer
to dry anyway with air drying synthetics as opposed to chemical curing
