If you guys don't mind, fill me in on what urethane paint is. The best I can recall, the man I got the paint from said it was urethane. I really don't remember though. What I do remember is I did not have to add hardener and I only added about 4 ounces of the clear liquid he gave me in the pop bottle. That is all I had to do to spray it. It didn't have a lot of over spray. That paint sprayed like liquid silk. So smooth, and it has been real durable and held the color great. It is a whole lot better than the Van Sickle and other implement paint I have used in the past. I would like to find something similar to that. The customer I'm painting this Massey for is going to use the tractor some, but yet he wants it show quality. Thanks

A urethane is a plastic, actually it's polyurethane made from urethane resins, the poly coming from the word polymer. The cheap polyurethane used in your house on woodwork is watered down and may only contain a small amount of polyurethane compared to automotive urethane’s. A polyurethane can be used without hardener however when mixed with isocyanide hardeners creates a chemical reaction which makes for a much harder and more durable paint. If isocyanides are mixed with the urethane you mix only what you intend to use because what is left over will harden in the can. There are many different kinds of paint a person can paint a tractor including a lot of automotive paints. What you have to keep in mind is most paints are not formulated to withstand oils and chemicals you would get on a tractor and a urethane will hold up much better.

Plese pardon the correction. Hardener contains isocyaNATES. I don't believe it is cyanide, which will kill a person pretty quick--I have not studied the MSDS.

Sorry, I didn't look up the correct spelling. I think the stuff is just as bad as cyanide though.

I think I used some form of cyanide to kill ground squirrels that were eating sunflower and sorghum seed in my plots after planting in the 90's. I was careful to hold it downwind and wore a mask most of the time. I would drop a pill in in the hole and cover with my foot. It helped but I couldn't get them all.

It wouldn't work in your plots, but when I worked in ag retail we would use anhydrous ammonia. If we had to change a valve or aything like that we had to drain them down to no pressure. That was a good way to utilize the otherwise wasted product.

Just got back from giving a presentation on in season testing. I went over PPNT, PSNT, Tissue testing, and SCN testing. Fun times! Any ideas on research I should do on soil sampling and getting quality results?

The commercial companies are ok for the most part. Sounds like you already know how to soil sample. Tissue testing is more complicated, something I have not done. Also the abbreviations PPNT, PSNT and SCN I am not familiar with. Been retired since 2001, your answer may or may not register in my head -- Who do you work for? I was a research agronomist for Kansas State University for 29 years at Garden City, KS. Tractor hobby is a return to my early years to keep me from becoming nuts.
