wow they have it? I don't. And i can't get it at all. So what exactly is the point? It simply isn't available to me yet.

And I don't want it because no one here uses Semigloss except for the Amish who use it on everything but won't pay more then $20 for it.

So for,fun, lets review-
my california rep-never heard of it
P&L rep- ditto
Dutch standard-(former BM rep)- never heard of it
My former P&L rep (now a BM rep)- can't get it here yet, or at least he hasn't seen anyone able to get it.
My current BM/Insul-x,Coronado rep-can't get it yet.
Columbus area BM dealer-nope, can't get it yet but doesn't want to anyway.
two northern Ohio BM dealers-nope, got sell sheets but not able to order yet
3 painting contractors who use Cabinet Coat regularly- haven't seen it yet.

three random people on the internet in various parts of the country- have had it for a while now.

I would say I can't get it yet regardless of what people in the rest of the country say.

For one thing, I don't carry BM. So I don't really give a **** beyond just entertaining myself.

and two-NOBODY HERE WANTS IT ANYWAY!

I've used it a few times I like Advance , CC, or Pre Cat SW much better. It's very shiny and plastic looking not a deep tone if you get my drift. I like C2 paints and this isn't a bad product but not a winner. Pics below are C2 semi as shown . The jobs I've done with the product still look great but again I like others better. One plus is drys quick and not much blocking but very plastic like Pro Crap from SW.

Cab job with C2 . Big Jim loves the fess tool we primed with CS and two coats C2. Like I said it's a decent product but not a show stopper and not easy to get.

@thinkpainting/nick Thanks for your insight since you've used the product. When you say not much block are you saying it blocks well or sucks? I just wanted to confirm this.

At this point I've narrowed it down to Advance, Cabinet Coat, Breakthrough and SW Water Borne Alkyd Urethane.

Blocks well. SW Pre cat is much better than the Urethane

At this point I'm looking at all the options that are readily available in my area. If I were to make a switch I'd figure out my process with old scrap doors before using it on a clients house.

I'm in Seattle and the same store also sells Pratt & Lambert.
Have you ever tried Miller's AcriNamel or DuraPoxy?

I used DuraPoxy on the walls of a condo earlier this year, but never for cabinets. I've never used or heard of AcriNamel, but I'll check it out. If you've used either product it would be great to get your feedback.

I posted a video about this C2 paint a few years ago.

Very unique product in the market place; and intersting story behind the "whey" University of Vermont research.

very brushable; not a great performer spraying. Its C2 so it is hard to source and limited inventory unless you have a top shelf C2 dealer.

We're on a major reno and using Advance for the first time. I was apprehensive after reading all the posts on here about the slow cure time. For a number of reasons, we're finishing the doors onsite rather than in the shop.

The doors are on horses and we can flip them and paint the other side within about 6 hours with no issues.

All in all, we've been really happy with the product. It has made a substantial difference in our productivity and the clients have been been pleased about the minimal odor.
