ML Campbell Pigmented Post-Cats?3/28
ML Campbell has at least 3 pigmented post-catalyzed topcoats. These products seem to offer similar or overlapping features, at least going by their product desriptions:
What are the real qualitative differences? How or why would I choose one or the other? When is the best use situation called for when selecting each product.
In other words, for these products, how do they differ from one another?
Resistant was the original product MLC had to offer for pigment CV.
Stealth is the upgraded version because lots of people were having issues with AAA pumps "shearing" the product because of how the pump works. This introduced lots of bubbles into the paint and caused problems with the coating. This is what I currently use.
I've never heard of Turino.
Did a quick look at Turino's spec list.
Looks like instead of an 8 hour pot life it has a 24 hour pot life.
It also looks like the spec list for things that can damage the coating is different. Looks like the Turino is a bit weaker on some common household items like Isopropyl Alcohol and Ketchup
It seems that a tradeoff of having a longer potlife is a weaker film.
Thanks mucho. I appreciate your A/b look. It looks like for now I'll stay with Resistant. Gotta stop looking in the neighbor's yard, lol. We aren't using an air-assisted airless.
I've used Resistant for 20 years.One of the best looking finishes and toughest on the market.Only problem I've ever had is it will sometimes wrinkle over Claw lock. No one has a answer to why.
I've spayed Turino. It needs only a 5% reduction, compared to 20% or more for Stealth.
It seems to flow out a bit easier than most pigmented conversion varnishes I've seen.
