Question

lacquer primer under Latex


Hi- I was once told that latex paint will peel off of lacquer primer, and to stick with oil based topcoats for interior trim. I love how smooth lacquer sands down, and would like to know if you all agree that you just cant top it with latex
(semi gloss)

Lacquer in any form is usually a sprayed on coat- what product (primer) are you using, and on what?
Most pre- primed wood is actually a lacquer, and it really sucks as a primer because it has no enamel holdout and needs to be reprimed . Not thinking that what you are using is the same- but I'm no fan..

thx for that reply B.J.- to answer your ?'s, the primer is from Color Wheel if youve heard of them- theyre down here in FL - and I've used s/williams but didnt get the build I like.
I am mostly using it on pine millwork--

I hear what youre saying about the preprimed trim and agree- thats my concern, if you dont sand and dust- that latex will NOT adhere for crap! especially if you have a large flat surface -vs- complicated profiles

on homes with smoke/fire damage we spray the bare studs and we spray the drywall that is left with bin(lacquer base) then back roll. we then paint with a latex based paint.

Bin is Shellac based, not lacquer.
