Default SW Pro Industrial Waterbased Alkyd Urethane Enamel

According to my SW Rep this product has been on the market in Canada for about 2 months now and I was thinking about giving it a try for some kitchen cabinets. We usually use MSA for cabinet repaints, but after looking at the PDS it seems to me that the AUE will level better, although it is not quite as hard as the MSA.

Thoughts? What are your experiences with this product? Have your sprayed it? HVLP or airless?

I gave it a test drive in some sample doors with MSA side by side. It does level a little better but severely lacks the adhesion and hardness of MSA. I stuck with MSA.

Do you spray? HVLP or airless?

Not questioning your results, just more curious:

How did you test adhesion? Score + tape? What was cure time? How did you test for hardness?

Nothing special I simply applied it to half an unsanded cabinet door and did the other half with msa. After 8hrs I couldnt scratch off the MSA and could easily scratch off the enamel. Then I tried it again every week for a month with the same results.

For a finish that leveled a hair better by brush than msa I dont think sacrificing some of the great qualities (recoat time, adhesion) is worth it.

It's definitely still worth having SW comp you a gallon to try for yourself. Like I said I haven't sprayed it maybe the finish is amazing sprayed I don't know.

I use it for the outside of exterior doors. Sprays really nice with an airless - brushing isn't great. IMO, biggest knock is lack of an eggshell sheen. Just available in satin and gloss, though I've heard it's coming out in eggshell (if it hasn't aleady).

According to the PDS it is currently available in low sheen, semi, and gloss. I was just looking at an old thread on this same topic, and it seems like they have done something to help the recoat time. In March the PDS said 12 hours, now it says 4. If I remember correctly RH, you use MSA for painting cabinets? Have you tried the WB AUE for that?

I've had great results with WB AUE on 2 cabinet projects (1 sprayed and 1 brushed) and 2 trim packs (sprayed) in the last year. I haven't had any adhesion issues, but I wipe everything with gloss off and scuff sand.

Although it's very similar to BM Advance, it's a much more forgiving product to apply compared to Advance. It can be applied at a thicker millage when spraying without running or sagging compared to Advance. If you add a small amount of water it also brushes very well and it's doesn't have the same issues with runs appearing on jambs with lots of corners.

Lots very smart guys here with years of experince. My trim paint depends on the job. Also depends whether spraying , brushing etc. So my answer is depends on job, dry times and high end or production.

Like Minwax waterborne polyurethane? If so, then no.

I've used the urethane enamel. Good stuff, dries pretty hard. 4h pencil hardness, according to the data sheet.

Honestly don't use it much..reason being is the re-coat and dry times. I can get solo (interior/exterior product) that has good blocking etc., to dry to touch in about 15-20 mins. It's less expensive, comes in more 'accurate' sheens, and works well (levels nicely enough). Only thing it lacks is the hardness of the WB alky ur. enamel.


I wouldn't put polycrylic on top of anything that is white, it has a yellow cast to it. And I also wouldn't use it on cabinets/trim. In a pinch maybe it would work, but I'd prefer to use something stronger. Like a waterbased poly. I prefer my clears to be water white/crystal clear...so they don't impart any yellowing/ambering.

I'd have to say Target Coatings or General Finishes poly stuff works good. Give them a shot if you have a vendor around.

We've used a lot of Solo and WB AUE...mostly for interior trim/doors/etc. Usually use Solo over acrylic and WB AUE over oil/hybrids. Adhesion seems a bit better than Solo, especially over oil/hybrids. They both level very nicely using airless and FF.
I just bought a gallon of INSL-X Cabinet Coat to try. It's expensive but was noticeably harder than WB AUE (fingernail test). Adhesion seemed similar. I was thinking of using it for cabinets when lacquer is not an option.

Correction: the PDS indicates the AUE (5H) is harder than MSA (3H).

How do you guys use MSA on cabinets, when on the data page is specs metal and concrete only? If you have any problem whatsoever, SW will never back your claim.
