Kem Aqua Plus
« on: April 18, 2017, 05:27 AM »
I have refinish project coming up and the client would like a glaze effect. I'm really enjoying using Kem Aqua + and would like to continue to use it with this upcoming project. My local SW dealer has some but limited knowledge. Are there any known compatibility issues known of? I'd be leaning towards using a GF stain with 10% Kem Aqua plus clear mixed in??
On another note what cleaner is best used with Kem aqua plus?  I've had good success with standard Krud cutter on other waterborne products. Not so much with the KAP. I've had to soak my gun to get adequate cleanup.

Bring the SW dealer a quart of KA+, have them add BAC, color of your choice to it.

BAC ? That's the wiping stain isn't it?

Blend-A-Color. It is the pigment that comes out of the tinting machines.

They also have Color Cast pigment, not sure if it is compatible with KA+.

That's why their stock is up 33% in one year. SW stock is on a rampage because prices have been raised, and they make people buy more than needed.

I've added BAC to KA+ often. Sometimes it's the colorant, sometimes it's BAC mixed stain I have on the shelf.

Looks like they can add Color Cast to the KA+.

More likely because of their bacteria killing paint and The Joint Commission looking at requiring hospitals and other medical facilities to use the paint.
