So, I applied Monstaliner in June. I used the tintable version in the sand color. It was EXCEPTIONALLY hot and humid that day (Birmingham, Al). It even rained briefly, although I was in a covered garage. I followed the prep instructions over a two day period prior to install. The first coat went on GREAT. Problem is, when I went to apply the second coat, it had started to set up- had chunks in it and was VERY thick. The can was closed between coats and I tried mixing it prior toi second coat. I went ahead and did my best to apply the second coat, but I felt like I was racing the setup. It was very hard to spread and I kept having to stop to pick out large pieces that had congealed. End result is some of it looks GREAT, and some of it is noticably thin.
I read all the inserts prior to application so I know that the chemical sets up in reaction with humidity/H20. I'm assuming I just picked a bad day to apply it based on the extreme heat and humidity, which caused the stuff to set up quicker than normal. Am I correct, or is there another user-error that I may have committed? Also, I would REALLY like to reapply the second(third?) coat to even it out and get the thickness right all the way around (there are spots where original surface peaks through, areas abviously thinner than others), but I do not need an entire gallon to do this. Do you sell half gallon sizes in colors? Or any size smaller than a gallon? And would it go on directly over the current coat without any other prep than cleaning, or would sanding be required? Thanks. This stuff really is great, verytough, looks great.
