Anybody ever use this? I have a client that pointed me towards it, I know nothing of it. Just wondering if any of you painting gurus have heard or better yet, used it and what you thought of it.

Here is the link

concerning cabinet coat

Hello Leo,


This is my very first posting thanks to you and cc. Initial exposure to cc was through a magazine ad in a diy publication. I do finishing work for a cabinet building associate. We had a kitchen remodel approaching, and i figured it was worth a go. This is where the deal went a bit pear shaped. I do most latex finishing with a titan 440i. The initial test pieces seemed promising, so we decided to make it happen. Bottom line is this Leo...don't do it. Spraying was extremely difficult to dial in. "Orange peel" occured at what should have been a dead-on setting, and any further adjustments upwards on the pressure dial only produced drips. The spray realm became much more difficult than what was manageable and cost effective. Brushing and rolling is horrid. The product is terribly loose, and coverage is poor. I pride myself on doing the business with any material, but i ultimately found no joy in this one. Explore other options in your price range. Best wishes.

This is interesting as I have had excellent results with this product. It's thin enough to spray with a fine finish tip without having to reduce it, and it dries to a very durable, satin finish. I had no problems with orange peel - in fact I found that this stuff leveled itself out really nicely. It does take a while to dry, but it's easy sanding and produces a flat, smooth finish.

I suppose it depends on how you apply it though. I, for one, would never brush/roll this product - if i'm going to spend $70 on a gallon of paint i'm going to make sure it goes on with a sprayer so I get the best possible finish out of it. I don't even think it's meant to be brushed/rolled. Hide is great, coverage is great (thin material), durability and finish appearance is outstanding.

Cons: limited colors and slow drying.

I would use this stuff on doors and trimwork, but if it's a painted looking finish on kitchen cabinets I want, then i'd stick to a pigmented pre-cat. Dries way faster, it's cheaper, and I personally prefer the look. But you need the right equipment to spray it properly. I wouldn't attempt spraying lacquer with a titan 440i. Unless you like explosions.

Thanks, but the kitchen has been redone for 6 months now. We decided against the paint route and did the kitchen in Sapelle' You can see it here
