Latex over Gloss
 
Hi all,

I've had different opinions on preparation before applying latex over gloss. Instead of the tedious job of sanding, would a wash with a strong TSP solution do the trick? It does take the gloss off if mixed too strong and I always thought the object was just to get a good bonding surface for the latex. :rolleyes:

Skip all of the above and use a bonding primer
such as ICI Gripper, or most Zinsser products.
If you have to use two coats, why not tint your primer close
to the finish coat.
Another option is to use Zinsser's Perma White products.
In fact every manufacturer has bonding primers.

Andy, I scuff everything with a 3M pad and go primer. IMHO, it's still a 'get by'. Few people appreciate quality any more.

The sanding doesn't have to be tedious, you don't need to go nuts on it
A nice sanding screen on a pole and you'll bust right through the job
