Less viscous and applies very evenly in light mist coats. DO NOT THIN!

Seems there are multiple labels

I have the "older" style bottle on my bench too...can't recall when I bought it though. But, it's lived in Florida, Maine and Maryland.

They have a separate Pledge with Future for wood, do not use this one.

Like Brett Green, I had problems with Future running sometimes, even when I would do light mist coats. Brett suggested thinning it in one of his build reviews. I now thin Future with an equal part of 91% iso alcohol and it sprays great. My current bottle is less than a year old but acts just like my previous bottle that lasted at least 10 years. Just curious as to the warning.

I find what works is what works for me.

Warning? About the one for wood floors? Seems to be a different formulation. But then again I've not used it.

thinned it. You were kinda emphatic in your original response earlier in the thread stating "Don't thin it". I thought maybe you had thinned it and it ate your paint or something. I airbrush Future at about 20 psi. Maybe you use a higher air pressure and you don't get runs. The only models I don't use Future on are the ones I suspect the decals are going to be tough to snuggle down and will require a hotter decal setting solution like Solvaset. I have had problems with Solvaset leaving milky marks in the Future that don't go away unless I use Testors gloss coat or dullcoat over it. Using lacquer products defeats the purpose of using acrylic paints and floor polish (safer, less smelly).

I don't have any experience with the Future for wood floors either. It may be the same stuff, but I don't like to experiment. Once I find what works, I stick to it. Had to wait several weeks for local supplier to get the regular Future back in.

I use a Sotar gravity feed at about 15 psi and barely pull back on the trigger.

Steve, are you using a Paasche #3 or rough equal when spraying it?
