cabinet maker's finish


Does anybody know the proportions of latex paint to water-based polyurethane?

It is a finish that the pros use if the customer want their cabinets in paint rather than natural finish. Makes for harder surface and also easier to clean than just latex finish.

Thanks,
Jim K

You'd be better off putting an acrylic floor finish on it. This should have the urethane already added in the proper amounts.

I would think that mixing poly and paint would not be necessary when we have fine, hard, oil-like waterbourne acrylic gloss enamels like BM Impervo or SW ProClassic.

All the cabinet shops out here in the Bay Area of Northern California use the Sherwin Williams Conversion Varnish which is a 2 part acidic epoxy and can only be sprayed in a booth.

We do a lot of custom cabinetry- if we paint oil we use BM Ironclad Super Satin and have a beautiful hard finish. If we faux, we topcoat with clear acrylic urethanes because they don't yellow as easily.

Same thing- BM Ironclad Oil, or acrylic urethane over faux. Most cabinets we work on are prefinished clear on interiors (except exposed boxes with glass doors).
