PPG paint
« on: May 29, 2018, 02:29 PM »
I was wondering if anyone one had any experience with PPG breakthrough paint.Im just learning how to spray. I have just bought the Graco ultra and wanted to spray a few cabinet doors but I’m told by sales rep not to use on cabinetry but it’s ok on trim lol! I’m I missing something?

Hi Alice,
Started spraying Breakthrough about a month ago. It's great paint. Dries quckly and levels out really well. Also re-coat time is after 2 hours, depending on drying conditions of course. I'm using a Fuji Q5 HVLP system. I've been meaning to try it with the Graco Ultra but haven't had the time. If you take a look at the TEchnical Data sheet it says you can use it for, here is the text from the TDS.

Break-Through! is ideal for doors, windows, cabinets, shelving, hand rails, fixtures, trim, wood and concrete floors.

Cheers,
JC

I love Breakthrough. i do all my kitchen cabinet jobs with the stuff and it looks great. Very durable as well. I do a lot of work ie. wood stain trim going white and most of my cabinets are wood stain going white....but if your using white Breakthrough the woodwork sometimes will yellow on you....like yellow stains that come through the paint. So, you need to prime or seal first unless your using a darker color. Dark colors hide the yellowing.

I have sprayed a large built in poplar bookcase with no issues at all. The wood was a bare wood and I put the BT right over it...but I now use a wood primer on bare wood simply because the primer is cheaper and I don't need to use as much BT. Also, some primers like SW wall and wood primer sands really nice.

MDF, I never sprayed MDF before but i heard if you do then you need to thin it down a little but that is not from my personal experience.
