Magnamax or Resistant6/26
We have been using Magnamax for the last 5 years, but once and while we came across with some water issues around the kitchen sinks , and garbage cabinet. Assuming that the clients are splashing water on the doors and drawer fronts, and not drying. Also some complain about wear and tear, clients saying that the paint we use is not strong enough, it chips when they hit the cabinet with something. Well, no different if they hit their $100k Mercedes with something, it will damage.
2nd No on Magnamax for kitchens.
Magnamax is for built-ins and/or cabinetry in bedrooms, living rooms, library, office etc.
We have used magnamax in kitchens with no problem . As long as you use claw lock for primer . On the advice from our local MLC salesman .
Skip the Resistant and go right to the "Stealth" , dries faster and harder!!
I've sprayed Magnamax, Magnalac, Resistant, and Stealth.
Of the four, Stealth is the best in my experience for production. I rule out Magnamax and Magnalac because they are precat laquers (ie, not as durable as CV) and neither are water white. I can assure you the clear yellows over time, I have products in my house I sprayed with it that look much more yellow now, 9 years later, than they did when I first sprayed them.
That being said, Stealth is my preferred, but even that product I don't like. I found that I had to do a lot more chemical/thinner cocktails to get it to cure properly than I should. It does NOT like hot weather at all.
I eventually started spraying a product from Sherwin Williams that is the most stable white CV I've ever seen (Kemvar plus), look into that if you have a SW branch near you.
