Except, the customer is a doctor. Aside from engineers (and the occasional lawyer), they can be among the very worst when it comes to being anal about stuff. And if the doctor happens to be a surgeon, then heaven help him.

There are so many better primers to go to now that itís ridiculous to even have PVA on the shelves.

Along with ditching the PVA, I would also recommend getting away from using Floetrol. Instead, get some of the XIM additives (they make them for both latex and oil). They are far superior products over Floetrol, at least IMHO.
I will look into that. Its actually the Sherwin M1 that I usually use.

Not familiar with it. Just a big fan of the XIM product line.

Plastic surgeons are the worst of the worst when it comes to being anal. But if I were under his knife, I might appreciate that personality trait!

XIM and M1 are pretty much the same thing. water and proplyene glycol.


BM extender has some Aura acrylic resin, doesn't weaken the paint film like XIM or M1 in large amounts.

Iíve told customers before that they want their brain surgeon and painter to be the anal types.
