Hi Bill K
Point taken.  I think accelerator would be last resort 
My last chemistry class was nearly 50 years ago as an undergrad and I was not a stellar student.  But my first and most fun job was bartender.  It was  chemistry of a sort😎.

I'd avoid the accelerator.  

Mixing chemistries in polyurethane paints is a bad idea.  Accelerators are used in two part polyurethanes, not single part products--which are very different animals.  The formulations for these paints are very fussy and mixing from one system or manufacturer to another has a very high chance of failure

Unless you really know coating chemistry, you risk creating a real mess that is hard to clean up.
