Default My First Breakthough Experience

It was a bit too thin to brush & seamed to reactivate a previous oil coating in spots, which was really strange. Not very user friendly. I'd be afraid to let any of my guys use it. I haven't sprayed it yet tho. It just didn't seem ideal for interior trim, probably better for cabinets and floors.

I think you omitted a few details here. What do you mean by reactivate? If someone shellac/oil primed a grease or water stain on a wall that has otherwise always been painted flat latex you're going to have slow drying there because it's sealed the paper up. flat latex paint doesn't seal against moisture well at all, so the rest of the wall sucks the vehicle right into the paper.

I'm looking to use it for the first time on a concrete basement floor repaint in a couple months. Trying to figure out ventilation and their low VOC option and color and sheen, but I think I can make it work. We'll see.

It was strange. It actually started to gum up a previous coating. I'll take a pic Monday.

Please do. I've had problems, generally around older people in rental units, where my latex semigloss (pick one but promar 200 comes to mind) sheds like I was painting over silicone on parts or all of some doors and jambs. Ran into it last week actually. Only way I know to fix it is to keep checking and backbrushing hard on it until it's scrubbed off or covers, you don't know its there until you roll over it.

Thats weird I pretty much had opposite experience. Preferred it thin. Layed off and leveled great. Probably good idea to use extender if hand brushing alot of trim.

Interested about oil gumming up in spots. That is probably not its fault but more some nasty contaminate.

Its cool to see anothers insight on it.

Spray it and check its durability on something not so important. Can almost break a nail trying to scratch it.

It's definitely more sprayer friendly. If using a brush, don't try to go back over something if it's been longer than a minute, what's another good thing about it is after an hour you can sand any flaws or mistakes.
