Customer Questions & Answers

can I use this water base alkyd paint over oil base alkyd paint? How to prep?

Asked by: rosie
Hello and thank you for your question. BEHR® Alkyd Semi-Gloss Enamel can be used over oil-based alkyd paint as long as it is properly prepared. The proper preparation steps are as follows: Allow new stucco, plaster and masonry to cure for 30 days. For interior and exterior surfaces, remove dirt, oil and grease stains with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 990 Concrete & Masonry Degreaser & Cleaner. Remove mildew stains with a mildew stain removing product. Remove all loose and peeling paint; scuff sand glossy surfaces; caulk; repair imperfections and sand smooth. For exterior surfaces, power wash to remove chalk. Etch galvanized metal with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM NO. 991 Concrete & Masonry Cleaner & Etcher. When priming interior surfaces with heavy stains, galvanized metal or wrought iron, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® NO. 75 All-In-One Primer & Sealer. When priming exterior surfaces with heavy stains, wood or metal, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS NO. 436 Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer. Be sure to read all back-label instructions and best of luck on your project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alkyd is Amazing! As a professional painting contractor, I have used many paints over the years, from just about all the suppliers. I started using the Alkyd for interior trim and doors about a year ago and fell in love with it! What a great finish at an affordable price. Wish it was here 10 years ago! thanks Behr!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Paint We used this to paint our kitchen cabinets and love the way the paint applied and looked after drying. The Behr representative recommended this product and we couldn't be more pleased. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from experience with 3900 Tried many different brands of latex enamel trim paint, all same--brush marks and surface that easily came up. Tried Behr Alkyd enamel--Oh Boy!---goes down easy, has just enough sag where majority of brush marks disappear as the paint dries and dried surface is hard and durable. Takes a little bit longer to dry than latex, but results are worth the wait. Clean up is the same (with water). I'm using white 3900, which is more of a light cream-Would like to know if Behr makes same in more of a traditional bright white. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Goes on smooth, dries reasonably fast., more durable and almost no scent. My favorite aspect of it, cleans 10x easier than latex off painting tools. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best ever for wood trim The woodwork in my house was stained. I wanted to paint but was having difficulty getting acheiving that smooth glossy look of oil paint until this product was recommended to me. Its amazing! It self levels and dries very hard giving my woodwork the look of oil. Best paint ever! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trim Paint!!! This is the best trim paint I've ever used! A little thicker than traditional latex paint, so it doesn't drip at all, I used an angled brush to apply to trim/baseboards/door jams, although you see the brush marks while painting it does seem to level out as it dries and they disappear. I did have to do 2 coats, but it was well worth it. The finished look is perfect and feels very durable, definitely washable/scrubbable. I plan on doing my kitchen cabinets with it next! Love this paint! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
