Need Advice for Low Sheen Clear Finish
« on: September 03, 2018, 06:37 PM »
I want to build some casework and floating shelves and want to match the existing cabinet finishes in my recently built home.  The builder used Renner Coatings waterborne materials with a 10-Sheen clear finish.  It is essentially like a flat or matte final coat.

I did build a number of cabinets and a large media center to match shortly after the house was built but I had to buy 5 gal of each for the stain, sealer and final coat.  The materials are expired and I do not want to spend that kind of money again for these new smaller projects.  ( I live in a hot desert climate and even with a controlled shop environment, liquid finishes don't last very long  [sad])

Can anyone recommend a waterborne clear finish that will produce a 10 or 20 sheen?  Thanks for any help you can give me. (Below is a story panel of the finish that I did a few years back showing the low sheen on the right)



Left to right: Stain coat 1, Stain coat 2, Sanding sealer, 10 sheen clear coat.  All sprayed with a 3-stage turbine.

Sherwin Williams KA+ DRE is a 20 sheen.

If you hav a PPG dealer near you look into Breakthrough. I don’t know if it comes in a clear.

Thanks will research..............I always preferred PPG paints, but those were mainly for Deltron on 3 generations auto finishes and were the best IMHO.

It does come in clear.  I have used it both in Satin and Gloss.  Really like the stuff!!!  They have a "50" and a "250" but honestly don't know the difference.
