lightly sand 220 by hand
spray primer

Sorta-
Are you removing doors?
You roll primer- do you back brush or just leave the stipple?
Why 2 coats primer?
You say spray- Do you know how?
Usually one primer 2 top coats can get it.
What is the difference between vinyl sealer and clear coat?

I do not know how to spray. I do one coat of primer myself because I never think enough primer gets on the cabinets when it is sprayed on. Its been my understanding that too much primer is a better problem than not enough.

My tenant is a painter and he will come and spray the cabinets.

I was hoping to find if there was a difference between vinyl sealer and clear coat.

No this is one situation that the two coats of primer will do well. Maple has alot of tannins that will want to soak through and make your white into a light yellow.

If you use the right primer one coat is always enough.Wrong primer and ten coats wont work.

I wasn't aware of that, and thought otherwise. Where did you find that info?

Ahhh. yes there are woods with more tannins. However not many so dark. How clever of you to point that out.

If you would pay attention to the original poster. (for the last time) He mentioned ALL products are water based. With that knowledge alone I figured they would do better with the extra coat of primer. Especially if it were to be sprayed on too thin. Remember guys were supposed to be here to help.

Is any of this making sense?

Yes it has very little tannins. However the ones it has are VERY DARK. They will show through with a white finish with water based products.

There's a lot of confusion on this short thread, between tannin content, latex primers, and the number of coats required, it's a wonder anyone has a straight answer. If OP hadn't already had his answer, we would need to clear through the haze.

I must be lucky I have never had tannins in maple bleed thru any primer. To the OP if you feel better with 2 coats then go for it, it won't hurt anything.
