Hi everyone! Im trying to understand some products on the market now. I have been reading that it seems the industry is now moving towards waterborne products as they are more environmentally friendly and easier to clean. But I have associated oil products as being more durable to wear n’ tear… apparently this is becoming less and less true.
I have plans to build 2 built in tower book cases using cabinet grade maple plywood. I have a gravity feed HVLP and have become fairly comfortable spraying.
I have gone to Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams, and both have this waterborne acrylic/alkyd blend that they say all their commercial clients are moving to…. Namely…. BM ADVANCE and SW ProClassic. Both companies of course will tell you they have the best… Questions are….
What Say you? Any advice/tips/feedback on the products?
Do you need to use the primer that they recommend or can you use an outside primer such as Zinsser?
Which brings me to another question…. How about Zinssers Shellac based primer? will these waterborne blends lay down over the top of that?
Is it true that this is what cabinet shops are moving to for tinted and painted cabinets?
dare I ask… Can it be used over the top of thermafoil cabinets? ( I know someone who is on a tight budget and would like to change the look of the thermafoil cabinets they have before move in time.)
I know its a lot of questions…. Thanks ahead of time for any advice you can provide..
