Jeff at Target recommended EM9300, with cross linker added, as the top coat for a large dining table I’m working on.

Anyone have experience with this finish? Looking for feedback on durability and ease of application (spraying).

Tung, I have never used this particular product, but I have sprayed gallons of EM6000 and EM1000 and they both were a joy to use. Jeff is a good guy and wouldn’t steer you wrong. The CL100 needs to be added slowly while stirring at least an hour (more is better) before you intend to spray. HTH

What art said. I buy 8000 in 5 gallon buckets and use it all the time. Haven’t used 9300 yet. I use one of the stubby plastic paint mixers on the drill and mix it for a good minute or two while adding crosslinker. Let it sit for a least an hour, usually I’ll mix it the night before I spray.

I think you can trust Jeff (unlike one member on this forum). You can always join Homestead finishing forum and talk with other who have actually used the product.

I read Art’s response too quickly and thought he said to stir the product for at least an hour. Dang Art! I don’t have that kind of time. I get it now.
I knew you would chime in, as I’ve read your posts extolling the virtues of Target coatings.

I don’t have any experience with Target’s products, but have always had good luck spraying pre-cat lacquer. Two coats on most everything, and three coats on dining tables. We have a couple tables in the house finished this way, and one is used daily. It’s been several years now, and they still look like new.

Good luck with it.

Not really, I do business and have talked to both of them on more that one occasion. Jeff homestead for spray equipment and Jeff Target Coating for finish.

What hell is a matter with you people. Where did I say anyone couldn’t be trusted. In my opinion I trust both of them to steer me in the right direction. In this thread we are talking about Jeff @ target coating.

Thanks guys, good feedback about mixing the cross-linker. I’m going to order a quart of the 9300 and give it a try.
