I have a question about adhesion. Usually I am answering questions. I have a client who wants to change the color of the cabinetry that was installed about 30 days ago. I have no issues with sanding and then toning the wood. I will sand the existing finish, then wipe down with a denatured alcohol wash. The new toner will probably have to be solvent borne. What I would like to do is apply a waterborne coating on top of the fresh toner. The existing finish is Valspar's Conversion Varnish. I want to know if it is chemically feasible to spray a waterborne coating (like Target Coatings) on top of the new toner. Will I have adhesion issues down the road? What are my options? I am trying not to spray a solvent borne coating on top of the existing finish so that the fumes won't drive them out of the house.
no input here ? did you get any answers ?
well then , i'll throw some out there .
i was always under the impression that a topcoat completely or partially melts thru a thin toner coat.......the two coats become one so to speak .
would the solvent , glycol esters , in a WB topcoat melt/soften a solvent born toner ? ........that would be my question .
I dont know the answer.
who is writing the check for this ?
Im pretty sure I would avoid this if at all possible . but you may have more hair than me .
Make a wb toner. They arent as nice as a solvent toner but it will adhere to a sanded surface and then you will be able to move on with the wb topcoat.
