Best paint for on site HVLP spraying built in bookcase
« on: April 19, 2017, 11:51 PM »
I'm wrapping up a large remodel from heck.  4000ft2 house almost complete gut with a 3 month turn around deadline.  One of the last pieces is a 12' wall of built in bookcases. I purchased the LR32 kit and am very excited to use it for this project.  I'm looking for a coating with better durability than the usual oil based paint.

I have been reading a lot on here about Kem Aqua plus and thought this would be the ideal product but after a call to a SW industrial coatings store today I think I will need to find another product.

I need to match the off white color of the kitchen cabinets that are arriving next week.  Kem Aqua is only available in 5 gal cans and at $150/gal is way to much paint and money for a small build like this.

Using a Fuji Q4 HVLP.  Any suggestions would be great

Thanks

Sounds like they are trying to hose you bigtime, I buy from the industrial division in Brampton, Ontario for about $55.00 a gallon tinted which should translate to at most $45.00 USD. It's not necessary to buy a 5 gallon pail.

Ya that doesn't sound right. I just got a gallon of KA+ white and KA+ clear and they were around $40/gallon. They didn't give me any issues about selling a gallon at a time. I just have to order ahead of time. When I buy more at a time they said it will be cheaper per gallon.
So maybe go into the place and talk to someone. That was how I got my initial answers from them.

I get my KA+ in gallons. I only pay around $30.00 a gallon for the whole line of KA.
I do purchase  the surfacer, sealer and clear in 5's.

Thanks everybody!  I know some of you do amazing work but after my call to SW industrial coatings office and before postiI was a little taken back there were this many people talking nonchalantly about using $150/gal paint and primer.  [smile]. I did wonder what insane prices everybody was charging for their stuff.

Decided to play dumb and call a SW retail store I use asking to order KA+.  Primer and KA+ will be here by Monday in gallon size.  With tax I'm looking my at around $100 so $45/can they will color match it in store.

Any suggestions or advice for a novice spraying this?
