Cabinet Coat vs SW ProClassic Acrylic Alkyd


I am in the process of painting trim and have been using Cabinet Coat. It works well on the trim but am concerned how it looks on the doors and am going to be painting kitchen cabinets. I'm wondering if I should switch to an Alkyd Acrylic (water-based paint) such as SW ProClassic or Ace Hardware Alkatex.

I've researched using an oil paint but am painting in BM white cloud and am concerned about yellowing and also the potential of oil based paints being eliminated and needing to touch up in the future. Any thoughts as to the best paint for leveling (no brush strokes) and has a durable finish? I'm considering spraying the doors with either an HVLP or airless sprayer. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Cabinet Coat vs SW ProClassic Acrylic Alkyd


I've never used Cabinet Coat or Alkatex, but love the SW Proclassic Acrylic Alkyd. Both brushing and spraying (thin 8% with water for HVLP) come out very smooth. The trick is to use a high quality brush and not over-work the paint. If spraying, do it in the shade on a cool day and make sure to practice beforehand to get the hang of how much paint and what gun settings you need to get good results. Good luck.
