Equasion’s “DB” Series reducers are formulated with premium quality solvents to ensure top performance in reduced basecoats such as Dupont's Chromabase and certain Hot Hues products.  Unlike most basecoat reducers, these BaseMakers contain key resins and additived to aid in basecoat flow, leveling, and metallic control.  While these products are neither produced nor endorsed by Dupont, many customers are finding they can replace their Dupont Chromabase "7160S, 7175S, and 7185S" BaseMakers with significant savings and no quality issues.
