I am going to be spraying a set of kitchen cabinets soon. The last
posts here on the Kem Aqua lacquer from Sherwin Williams was a few
years ago. Has anybody had any recent experience with this product
that they can share. I can get it locally for about $125/5 gal. can.
Otherwise, I need to pick another brand and get it via the web.
I've sprayed a lot of Hydrocote and Kem Aqua. My experience has been that
the Kem Aqua product is very good & very consistent, but the local SW store
is poor at servicing commercial contracts; product may take two weeks to
arrive before I can pick it up at the store. (Prolly good at servicing
homeowners and painting contractors). Hydrocote OTOH, has been very
inconsistant in quality for me, although the local supplier, Hood Finishing,
is very professional and a pleasure to deal with. Product is delivered the
day after it is ordered.
I've had Hydrocote thin as water and that won't cure, thick as pudding, with
a brick of flatting agent at the bottom that won't mix in, contaminated with
black specks, and contaminated with something causing fisheye.
I'm very satisfied with the Kem Aqua product, and I like the fact that it
comes in 4 different sheens.
