Default SW 200 acrylic alkyd

I have a built in to shoot and was thinking about using the new sw acrylic alkyd. I wondering if this stuff cures down to a hard finish like a true alkyd does. Does anyone have any experience with this product's properties? I am always skeptical of new products.

There are quite a few threads on this, check his one. Search "waterborne alkyd" and you will find a lot of insight and impressions from the community.

I like it, there is a learning curve, thin coats are good, drys quick, hard as oil. it is pretty much an oil paint suspended in water. The water dries leaving oil. I know technically this could be said "mo' betta' " but that's the general theory. Hope this helps.

Only big issue is it still yellows like oil. Slightly easier over all because of dry times.

I'll check out those threads. You're input is helpful. I trust the input of a painter over a sales clerk on a new product.

Have the store comp you a gallon. Try it out on a small project sometime. Watch out for vertical slumping (sags), on horizontals your golden, it levels great. I prefer the ProMar 200 over the ProClassic in this product, it seems a bit more true and easier to work with. Plus a few bucks cheaper.

No offense. My local Ben Moore dealer is great The national brand stores tend to be more about watching man hours than product knowledge, however. Lets be honest though, painters are the ones who are applying materials on a daily basis. A data sheet has its limitations. I do appreciate the you guys who take the time to learn about the products they sell.

I've known some really knowledgeable people in the retail side of the trade. I think the few that we have on the forum have done a great job for us.
