Answer: 
Hello Hewitt,
Thanks for your interest in Behr paint. Applying our products to a bathtub might not give lasting results. Our testing doesn't support our coatings going on areas that have this high of a moisture exposure, so we'd recommend against applications on bathtubs and showers. You might check with Home Depot for another brand's coating that may be suitable. Best wishes!

Answer: 
Hi Texas2000!
Thanks for writing in, and great question! The Alkyd Enamel Paint is designed for both interior and exterior use. This means, it has UV protection and dries to a hard enough shell to stand up against the elements. The finish is also easy to clean without scuffing, making it ideal for interior projects as well. Hope this helps! Best, Jeanette P.

Answer: 
Hi Mc!
Great question. Although it's not necessary to sand between coats, it would be okay to do so if you are experienced with the technique. Nevertheless, the Alkyd paint is known for it's exceptional flow and leveling, so I think you'll be happy with the finish. Hope this helps, and good luck on your project! Best, Jeanette P.

Answer: 
Sure, I've lightly sanded between coats sometimes. But it has a very good leveling properties and is rarely needed. If you are painting furniture, only roll in one direction, don't roll back and forth for best results.

Answer: 
Hello Amandita5,
Thanks for your question. It's not a 100% acrylic product but an alkyd which is a special synthetic oil base that has both properties of oil-based paint (harder drying for better durability) and water-based (ease of use and cleaning). As far as thickness, this product has a viscosity of 85-95 KU. We've found that it's the right consistency to be applied with an airless sprayer as long Read More
Hello Amandita5,
Thanks for your question. It's not a 100% acrylic product but an alkyd which is a special synthetic oil base that has both properties of oil-based paint (harder drying for better durability) and water-based (ease of use and cleaning). As far as thickness, this product has a viscosity of 85-95 KU. We've found that it's the right consistency to be applied with an airless sprayer as long as the tip size is 0.013-0.017" and there's a 60 mesh filter. Thinning is not recommended, even for spraying. Hope this helps!

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 50 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Semi-Gloss Enamel Alkyd Paint (Behr) Love this paint for my bathroom cabinets. Made them look new again without spending tons of money on new ones. I went with Molten Black and it looks awesome with my grays and purples for my vintage feel of old glam vintage Hollywood . March 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BEHR1-gal. #OSHA 4 Safety Purple Semi-Gloss Enamel Alkyd Interior/Exterior Paint I used this paint for the inside of a bus and two coats covered nicely. I will be getting more for the outside of the bus. June 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by After seven day the paint does not dry, Never dry, difficult to make color,they said no money back because the color October 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy The paint is still tacky after a week. Spoke with Home Depot's Behr rep and they said it could take 3-4 weeks to cure. Home Depot did refund our money. August 8, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sets up way to quickly This paint sets up so quickly that you can't fix any problems while wet. It also does not level well at all. I think Behr needs to work on this formula much more August 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by enamel alkyd went on smooth with not the messy clean up will use this product again July 20, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disapointing Maybe it is just glossier than I like, but I do not love this paint. I used it to paint my bathroom cabinets, and I did everything as directed. I cleaned it with TSP, I used a deglosser, I cleaned it again. I used a primer, I waited over 24-hours between coats, I waited 7 days to hang it with hardware, and still, it is sticky and I just dont love it. Also, when I went to wipe it off, it started to rub and bleed. That's not good! I was able to match it with the Behr color I wanted exactly, so that was nice. May 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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.] April 20, 2016
