Working With Fypon


Has anyone ever work with this material? I do know it's a high density urethane. Font doors are Mahogany, and the casings are Fypon, both painted with oil, high gloss white. Last painted 2 yrs ago from what clients have told me. The casings are peeling bad, and it looks like there's mold coming thru the oil on the doors. Plan is: wash down with Jomax, scrap as much paint off the casings and give the doors a light sanding. Use oil base primer from Zinsser and finish coat with Ben Moore - Iron Clad. Anything you guys would do different please advise. Thanks!

You should be using 100% acrylic on fypon.I think BM Impervex has the highest gloss.

Why Latex?? If there is a specific reason, that's one thing. But you get a better finish with oil.

Okay. So i'm assuming the primer should be latex too.
