Guidelines for ThreadMaster ONE Application
Unlike standard 2-part epoxy finishes, ThreadMaster ONE is a water-based, one-part finish, and these guidelines will help you get the best finished results.
DO NOT USE FLAME — IT HAS NO EFFECT
- Use straight from the bottle, there is no need to mix — DO NOT SHAKE OR STIR!
- Observations showed negligible thread color changes after applying ThreadMaster ONE.
- Apply in temperatures above 67°F, any lower will greatly increase drying time — The warmer, the better.
- This is not a Color Preserver, so use CP if necessary in your particular thread application.
- Since this is a water-based finish, after it is applied — the finish will dry and shrink slightly compared to its original application.
- It is generally recommended that the first coat just soak the thread with no buildup at all to help prevent any bubbles that might occur with thicker coats, so wick off any extra. If CP is used, then this step can be skipped.
- The 2nd coat can be thicker to account for the slight shrinkage once it dries.
- 2 coats can achieve adequate buildup, but you definitely will in 3 coats.
- For physical application to thread wraps, apply in the same manor you would a 2-part epoxy.
- Turn on your rod dryer — Depending on the room temperature, allow at least 3 hours between each coat.
- If any bubbles, the best ways to remove them include blowing them out with a thin straw, and using a toothpick, etc. to poke them out — FLAME WILL NOT WORK!
- Allow at least 72 hours for full cure, but in cooler temperatures allow more time accordingly.
Thank you for trying ThreadMaster One!
This product is like watered down Elmer's glue. Dries cloudy/milky. Followed directions. Still turned out horrible. Will NEVER buy again.
I started using Rod Dancer before it was purchased by Mud Hole. I use it on the fly rods I build. I find the best way is to apply a few dropos(three or four) in a lid or cap dish and apply lightly while turning the guide thread, coating it lightly. After water clean up let it dry and the next day apply another coat. i usually apply three coats , each sparingly. I really like this product.
Not fit for purpose, turns to jelly when wet.
I purchased this for my guides on my ctx affinity and it is complete garbage. Went on pretty good a little bit more labour intensive than a two part epoxy to make it look good. However went and fished today in the rain (rod has cured in the house for 3 weeks) and all the epoxy turned foggy white and softened up when it was wet. When you dry the rod it clears and hardens up and once it is wet again it goes back to white. Completely disappointed, this product should not be sold if this is the end result. A great way to ruin a 450 dollar blank and alot of hard work putting it together.
