Default Cabinet coat = fantastic finish!

I just sprayed out some kitchen cabinet doors with my airless and used a paint called "cabinet coat" by insl-x....I'm not an expert sprayer by any means and the finish is just like laquer...I'm not kidding...It is an enamel water based product...It is now my go-to cabinet finish...

Who makes insl-x, and what kind of paint is it?

Apparently Benjamin Moore manufactures it but it is available under the brand name insl-x in other paint stores as well...It is a water base enamel paint...Contains ethlene Glycol. Can recoat is 6 hours....I would dry them flat because they say it levels out like Aura .... Too much applied on vertical surfaces will run....It is a much harder finish than Aura...It feels just like oil.

Sounds like the old styrinated paints, these are good, but take a long time to cure. They will also peel back when you remove the masking if you don't do it right away.Almost all paint companies make one of these now, they came out about ten years ago, but there are better paints out there now.

One thing I forgot to mention about these paints is that after they cure, they sand like oil paint, they don't ball up like latex.

This is an acrylic urethane paint. I used it before Moore bought them out. It is good stuff. I had a couple quirky batches, so I have not used it as much has I normally would have. It dries hard and fast. Flow is excellent. It will crack over caulk, so watch those corners and give caulk a full dry time, do not push it. I have not compared it to Aura yet for hardness. Its adhesion compared well with Graham, both better than waterborne impervo and both harder than waterborne impervo.

If you spray a cabinet door flat, run a brush through the door and walk away, all the brush mark flow out and are gone FWIW (just a random test when trying a distress look on a scrap door)

So is this more like a dtm?

I actually had to brush a little area that got messed up by my shirt when I put it on the dry stand...I assumed that I will have to respray it tomorrow after I levelled it out with a brush...I hope you are right!..I haven't looked to see if it levelled out....

One last thing..This paint is only available in off-whites...It is not tintable in darker colours.

What we are finding out as painters and also paint companies, is that there are a lot of paint films that will work fine and even better than what we have been using for a specific purpose. they all have different properties like how fast they dry and how flexible the remain, what they do over fresh caulking. We as painters are at a good time in history when it is hard to keep up with all of them. This is so much fun finding new paints and what we can do with them.

I told the rep a few years ago they need more bases and quarts, but no such luck so far.

I can't figure out if what he is using is a dtm type of paint, or a styrinated paint, but anyway PPG has a very good urathane DDM paint in quarts any color. It is a urathane and like you said will crack over new caulk, but dries very hard in like an hour.this is a paint that I will start to use more and more over the old styrinated paints

Do any of you guy's remember a paint that came out a few yesr ago that was a cross between a oil paint and water borne? It went on as a water base and dried as an oil. I used this for a good while and loved it, but they pulled it off the shelves. Man talk about leveling out, it was the best.
