Flex agent is way too over priced. I can buy a gallon or more of paint for the price of that crap, and just keep repainting them. I didn't use it at all on my car. Never have.

What's that Klasse stuff?

Mike says to ask your automotive paint supplier about the flex agent to add to your paint. He paid about $45.00 a quart. This is what we added to the paint on the Honeycombs. This is just a suggestion, we didn't try it on our flares yet but probably will, when we paint them.

I painted my own car, remember. I know what flex agent costs. TOO MUCH!! You want to keep your paint from cracking on the bumpers when using an Acrylic Enamel? Don't use hardener. Just reducer. Then you save 45 bucks. :ax

I'll check the other stuff out though. :ax

This is from that site that sells that Klasse stuff. http://www.autogeek.net/klasse.html

Quote:
High Gloss Sealant Glaze creates an elastic, non-chip, shrink-proof, heat and scratch resistant - protective seal against ultraviolet rays, salt water, acid rain and industrial pollutants for up to 12 months. Use this glaze on all paints with or without clear coats, glass, fiberglass, Plexiglass, plastics, metal surfaces, enamel, tiles, Formica and all non-porous surfaces. It is anti-static, non-abrasive and contains no ingredients harmful to paint, metal or plastic.
Sounds like a crock of sh!t to me.

Flex agent is only a crutch for a short time.
It actually causes more problems then it helps.

It's MAIN purpose is to allow a longer time for a production shop to be able to install a plastic part without cracking the paint.
After it dries, flex additive has no flexing qualities. just reduced adhesion to the painted part

I was told the same thing by this old body man that I always talk to, Marty. He told me not to even bother with it. Just like fisheye remover and all of those other silly additives, the autobody world has it's share of crap.
