We want to paint our outdoor "oak" cabinets with this Pure Red hi-gloss enamel paint. Do we need to primer the wood? If so, which primer do we use

We want the final product to have a very slick hi-gloss finish. Thanks.

Can Behr premium plus be used on metal?

I am paint some outdoor metal. Can this paint br used?
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Buster, You can choose Premium Plus Hi-Gloss Red Interior/Exterior Paint paired with an exterior primer such as Premium Plus Exterior Multi Surface Primer and Sealer #436 (Water Based) or Premium Plus Oil-Based Primer and Sealer #434. Painting exterior metal is tricky because the key to a successful job is proper preparation. You want to make certain that the metal is clean and there is no trace of chalk on the surface. Chalky residue or dirt will prevent the coating from adhering properly so many painters will use a scrub brush and detergent to ensure the metal is good and clean. You will also need to scuff sand or etch bare metal, remove rust and repair any damaged or peeling areas. Be sure to paint when the temperature is within the recommended range and rain is not predicted in the forecast. Thanks for your inquiry!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for trim I used the utra pure white hi-gloss on the trim in our house and it looks great. It only needed one coat over previously painted surfaces and 1-2 coats over unpainted surfaces (plus primer).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New life to old cabinets I bought the Behr Ultra Pure White Hi-Gloss enamel to paint my kitchen cabinets and I can't tell you how pleased I am with the results. I had cabinets that were in good shape but just stuck in the 70's with the dull brown stain on them. I went and I picked up the Ultra White since I wanted to make my kitchen look bright and clean. I used 3 coats of paint and a primer and while it took me awhile to do all of the cabinets I am so happy that I chose Behr paint for this project. I have had them painted for 6 months now and no fading or chipping and it gets a lot of use. Thanks Behr for making me happy to be in my kitchen again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can be made better I have tested a number of primer paints because my wood fence does not keep for more than a few years - its under trees for the most part. I have noted that if some of this paint (Behr Exterior) gets on my hand it does not come off easily. Yup, it sticks. Any other primer I have used for outside rubs of easily. this primer makes my fence paint more effective. The high gloss enamel comes off my hand easily suggesting it has less than the highest quality primer within the mix.. Your exterior paints should use your better quality primer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish! I bought this product to paint cabinets in my laundry room. The paint seemed a little watery. I painted one coat and waited a couple of days to paint the next coat. As the can says "glass like finish" it is true. The cabinets sparkle. I would recommend this product to people who are looking for paint in a high moisture environment (kitchens/baths). When painting with this paint inside have plenty of ventilation. :)
