The only ipg we use these days is the green and the pg 5. Been using a lot of 3m 2020plus for things that require a bit more stick em.

The satin is what I like. A bit more like semi in pc....just a hair under and buttery smooth.

Just did a foyer and hallway with Scuff X Matt and trim in satin. Both in ready mixed white. Sheens are very close to Regal/Aura finishes. The feel of both is amazing. Hide was very good. White over white. Dried quick. Rolled and brushed well.

Itís in line with the other satin sheens BM sells...Aura, Advance. Not quite as shiny as Ben semi (which I love and find to be less glossy than Regal semi and donít care for).

Scuff-X is available in Semi-gloss, but not in all markets. I used it on a small trim pack last summer. Ask your rep if they can order it.

Fairly sure that Scuff-X semigloss releases nationally in a few months.

Anyone know how scuff x sticks to previously painted trim/cabinets? Maybe have to prime over oil even if scuffed? PC does stick fairly well....

Test it. I have had it stick to oil-base poly without scuffing (just a wipe down with mineral spirits). It had better adhesion than Stix to the same substrate.

Iím about to paint an oak bedroom set in a dark grey and I am not planning on priming as long as it passes an adhesion test first. Iím a little worried that a deeper base wonít stick quite as well. Also not sure if I should go with eggshell or satin with the darker color. I donít want it to be too shiny.

I’m about to paint an oak bedroom set in a dark grey and I am not planning on priming as long as it passes an adhesion test first. I’m a little worried that a deeper base won’t stick quite as well. Also not sure if I should go with eggshell or satin with the darker color. I don’t want it to be too shiny.
I just painted some kitchen and bathroom oak cabinets gray.

I first used a WB primer on the Cabinet boxes called 'Gripper' from Dulux [owned by PPG].

This has been my go-to bonding primer to go along with Stix. I was not happy with the adhesion as it chipped off on corners etc after 3-4 days and even 4 weeks after the final coat of Advance. I could have pulled off the Advance in little sheets if I wanted to. I noticed my customer dinged a corner of a cab when I went back to do the bathroom cabs a month later.

Note: I cleaned & prepped the cabinets properly and even used 'Gloss Off' by KrudCutter for Xtra care.

I switched to Sherwin Williams Shellac Primer for all the 40 doors and drawer faces. That bonded perfectly with zero problems. That'll be the last time I use a WB primer for cabinet boxes.

I had the same issue of chipping after using Stix primer and 'Inslx Cabinet Coat' on some old cabinets. I touched them up a few times for the customer over the years.

With that being said, I would NOT use Scuff X without a primer unless it was over previously painted cabs. (not lacquered).

Just the same Iím going to test it out. Have you ever tested Scuff X without primer? Iím telling you, you canít scratch it off most surfaces.

I,too, love that blue tape. But have found their green tape to be fantastic and easier to get. I have a case of blue 1.5" in my garage that I'll probably be selling in the near future. 100 bucks plus shipping takes it if anyone is interested. I think theres 24 rolls in it? Not sure....gotta look.lol
