SW universal primer10/28
At the show in Atlanta I talked with the rep about a "new" product that I"m interested in .
I currently self seal with SW Conversion Varnish. It builds great, but sanding isn't the easiest. I like the idea of having this finish sitting in a pot (no shelf life) and being able to jump in the booth and seal a rack of doors without mixing up CV.
Anyone tried this yet? I'm interested in quick build and the ability to sand (level) the finish in one step. I would topcoat with 2 coats of Kemvar pigmented CV.
We use chemcraft aquaprime and it has worked great for us. It takes some getting used to in the beginning but once you are used to it it is fine. It is waterborne and dries quickly, sands easily andrecoats with just about anything. Chemcraft is available thru worth and others.
We personally use E63W Kemvar Primer for all our priming needs. I actually prefer to use this catalyzed primer because it builds so well over mdf edges and surface defects. You can build coat after coat as long as let it flash between coats.... After it dries well you can grind it back super flat and defect free and keep your dry mil spec.... We mix and catalyze only what's needed to make it through the day.. We also have it formulated by viscosity and Sherwin custom batches it for us so we do not bother with reducing in shop...Sands like a dream when its dry. just catalyze and go...
thanks for the replies.
I picked up a 5 of the Kemvar Plus Primer yesterday and sprayed a few cabinets. Haven't sanded it yet, but it seems to build just as fast as self sealing with CV. The only down side is the primer needs reduced and the ratio for catalyst is different from the other products. (one more chance to make a mistake).
