I’m stripping and refinishing my kitchen cabinets in a white color. I was initially going to use Satin Impervo Waterbase, which I’ve used for trim, door & wndow frames, bookcases, etc. (all brushed on) but I’ve heard good things about Cabinet Coat and think it will make a tougher surface for high use cabinets as opposed to the waterbase Impervo.
I’d like to spray it with my HVLP gun and would like to get some input if anyone has some experience with spraying the product.
Thanks a bunch!

I can’t comment on the Cabinet Coat product, but regarding spraying it, I recommend getting a Ford #4 viscosity cup and using it, combined with the spray tip chart for your HVLP gun, to determine the correct tip size for its viscosity and/or thinning for your tip size.

Good link from AG. Jeff always has the best info. I’d also recommend a wet film thickness gauge for test sprays. They’re under $10 and invaluable.

Thanks for the replies.

I’ve got a wet film thickness gage somewhere and also a cheap plastic viscosity cup (lent my metal one out and never got it back).
I’ll look through the literature. If anyone has used this product I do have some questions.

And it’s been a long time since I’ve sprayed. I’ve got a fantastic clearcoat gun (LVLP) and also a cheaper primer gun which I’ve used for spraying colored conversion varnish. I’m hoping the primer gun will be able to handle the viscosity of the Cabinet Coat.

Take a look at General Finish pigmented poly in white. I have used their black in various sheens and have been very happy with the results. It is designed to only be sprayed. HVLP: 1.3mm-1.5mm spray tip, medium air cap
