We are thinking of switching to chemlife24 CV in both clears and pigments. Any advise from those of you that use it would be appreciated. How you like the finished product? Tips on application. Thinning? Or any other advise. Thank you
I love it . In the Kremlin AAA I thin primer 15-20 % and pigmented top coat 10% .Clear sealer and top coat I spray right out of the can .
I spray quite a bit of the clear and some of the pigmented. I am very happy with it. It drys fast and sands well. I have had no issues with the durability of it for kitchens and bath cabinets. I have been told that for extra durability in baths the sealer is better for a first coat but I have never bothered with it.
Thanks for the input. Which primer do you use for the chemlife24 pigmented?
Aquaprime 9002 can be used under all products. Great stuff. We have been using this for several years with no problems.
I have used Chemlife 24 White - Primer
I like the Ml Campbell primers a little more than the Chemcraft version but it is not worth keeping 2 different catalysts and thinners.
If you spray every day it is nice knowing the tail end of the batch you mixed the day before can be used as a first coat the next morning. Really cuts down on waste with pre-cat.
Thanks Gerry. So you use clawlock under chemlife, no issues? I really like clawlock. Not an issue using 2 different manufactures?
Yes I have used both clawlock and the level primers under the Chemlife 24 and did not see any problems. I don't do enough pigmented to keep 2 products in stock so I just use the Chemlife 24 primer and find it works well.
I see in my previous post I said pre-cat when talking about the waste factor I should of said post cat.
