This is what they bring to my town. I've used this and it's totally a life saver, specially for panel doors and windows.

Cant rember, but I think 3-M makes it. I forget. I have never tried it myself, but would like to. I could see it being an asset on french doors, etc.

And 90% of the time we prefer to brush and roll it on the glass, not spray it. I find it difficult to sand the surrounding wood if liquid mask has been in contact with it. The coats are a little lighter brushing and rolling compared to spraying but just as effective and easier to work with.

Great product. Pretty amazing actually. Just make sure you get enough on for easy removal. Oh and make sure you add it in to your materials; it's quite expensive.

It doesn't peel off wood (specially bare wood) it work as a primer for bare wood.

You can Spray it, brush and roll it. It takes about 30 min to dry.

I have had a different experience with it. It can not be sanded like a primer.

As much as I respect some of the people who have written in support of this product, I am surprised to read they approve.

Maybe it improved since I put down the brushes, but back then we decided:

A) it was ineffective
B) took longer to apply and scrape off than knowing how to cut in
C) don't get it on the wood
D) costly

Again, I see the same names that give this a thumbs-up that find disfavor with taping.

I'm just surprised, not judgmental

I've used on french doors (Brand new and bare wood) and windows, I sprayed it with the liquid mask then I primed the doors, so I actually didn't rely on it to be a primer, I just read what the specifications said on the can (and it says that it work as a primer for bare wood) then I primed it just to play it safe so I never had a problem.

Bill,
I first tried it a few months ago on one of my NC sites. We have over 40 vinyl clad casement windows with a prairie style mullion per house. These windows with prep and paint by brush are around 3 hours per window. With liquid mask they are barely 45 minutes a piece and the finish product is far superior to a brushed finish. If you do the math I am sure you can image the increase in value.

Also the product works very well on delicate surfaces that a razor or a window scrapper might damage.

So you guys trust this product as a primer for bare wood??? I'm not sure I could place my trust in it.

For those that approve of this product, how long have you been using it and have you witnessed any failures?

hang on, you primed the bare wood with it, then applied a traditional primer over the top?? If the whole point of this product to to create a barrier which paint can not penatrate and peel away, how would applying a primer help?

Sorry, just trying to get my head round this?

interesting, very very interesting..... If it cannot be sanded, that would be a problem using it as a primer.

I sprayed this liquid mask on the glass with a proshot very quick, I just passed a little into the wood but I never meant to actually prime the entire door with this as it is quite expensive and the store just had 1 gallon left, I was a little skeptical about this being a primer also, then I primed the actual wood doors with proper primer.
It turned out to be a very helpful product, I saved a lot of time.
Here is a picture of some doors I finished with it.
