Default General finishes pigmented polyurethane experience?

Looking for an hvlp friendly waterborne coating for trim, built ins etc when looking for a spray vs brushed finish.

The manufacturer says this is custom tintable now. Any experience with this coating?

My concern is it'll behave more like a lacquer over caulked joints, zero tolerance for movement vs an acylic enamel paint which has a little more forgiveness.

Poly should work just fine.

It's designed to not be as hard as a lacquer and more flexible. Has good block resistance a d of course your water resistance too.

Give it a shot or see if they can sell you a sample quart to test out.

General Finishes makes some good products. I use a lot of their stuff from stains and clears. They don't make the strongest clears but they go on good.

That's good to know.

Do you think they can match a Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams color match?

One intention is to match trim,soffits, customn islands to prefinished kitchen cabs.

Plan was to take a door and get a local color match than have general tint their poly. However If they can only match color decks then I may have to go another route. Ive read on here Breakthrough with PPG extender is thin enough to shoot with hvlp but have never used breakthrough.
