Does anyone have experience with this product? I used it to refinish honey oak cabinets. I cleaned with TSP, deglossed, applied two coats of behr num 75 primer, and applied two coats of enamel. I sprayed using a 0.015 tip. It cracked when drying as shown in the pictures. Does anyone know what would cause this or what to do differently? I emailed behr, they refunded my purchase but didn't offer any advice. Can you recommend an alternative to this product that you've had success with? Both primer and paint alternatives would be appreciated.

New here, so thanks for the help.

Bring one of those doors to your local Sherwin Williams store for far better suggestions.
#1, Did you rise off the doors after using the TSP?
#2, They should have been sanded to get off the old sealer not just deglossed.
#3, There should have been no need to apply two coats of primer if a bonding primmer was used.
There likely going to suggest just buying new doors, and I'd agree, all that old fail stuff needs to come off.

I posted in your other thread on PT but I think the use of a .015 tip is your issue. Even from your pictures looks like you put the paint on way too thick.

A lighter coat solved my cracking problem on the other face of the cabinets.

I'm new to airless spraying, can you help me understand what is causing small pinholes?

Sanding make sure you fully remove sanding dust, vaccum and wipe with a damp microfiber cloth.


Switch to a 310/410FFLP tip. Run at the lowest pressure possible and still maintain a good spray pattern
