Default Devoe Wonder Pure

I have been using Devoe Wonder Pure on a commercial repaint project. My employees and I have noticed that our brushes react to the paint poorly (fork, bend and remain stuck in that position, or just get kind of hard) after a couple of hours of work. So...we started combing them every 10 minutes or jumping into a new one. Then I noticed small yellow deposits left behind in the brush after cleaning. I'm wondering what this is. As they build up in the brush it almost become in-usable. This product will trash a brush in two weeks or less.

Does anyone have any experience with this product. I thought of thinner or brush cleaner.

Note: I notice this problem when using the Flat paint. Doesn't seem to effect the brushes when using eg-shel. I primarily use Purdy brushes. Most of my employees prefer Wooster. We get the same yellow build up despite the brush.

Never used this product, but looked it up and see it is 0 voc. Most 0 voc coatings react poorly to natural fibers. This has been very evident when using sheep skin roller covers also. Most manufactures recommend using a synthetic cover / fiber for application. Also, keep in mind these 0 voc products do not use biocides, and can quickly coagulate (paint synerisis) in the bucket if not careful. Therefore, if using a 5gallon bucket, only introduce a roller or brush if you plan to use it within a few days. Otherwise, any bacteria picked up from the brush or roller on the wall will quickly spoil your paint.

Light color primarily...we have used dark colors though. I may put one brush in light colors and one in dark to track whether there is a difference.

Actually, Wonder Pure does have biocides in it. This product is zero VOC (before tinting), and is 100% acrylic. A nylon polyester brush is best for application.

My theory would be since it is a low VOC product and low odor product it may not have enough ammonia in it to fully distribute and keep the acrylic resin disspersed leaving some of the globul's of vinyl acrylic in the brush fibers that coalesce when exposed to air. Reading the TDS mentions it is a fast drying product and recommends cleaning brushes frequently. Just a theory and can't really offer a solution other than what you are doing.

I spoke with the store owner about this product. He said several other contractors had mentioned this problem. One of them soaked the brush in kerosene and wire brushed it the next day. Apparently it worked.
