Asked by: joe
Hi joe, unfortunately, we do not recommend applying the Alkyd Paint or any of our products directly on fiberglass. However, there is an exception. If you prime first using the Kilz Adhesion Primer from our sister company (https://thd.co/2NzZFSU), it will be okay to apply the Alkyd Paint over that. -Takhari

Can this paint be sanded between coats?

Can this paint be sanded between coats?
Asked by: Lee
Hi Lee, It's not always necessary to sand between coats, but if needed, it will be okay when using the Alkyd Paint. You can use extra fine sandpaper (280-320 grit). And keep in mind that it's very important to follow all label instructions for prep and application to ensure a successful project -Takhari

Customer Reviews

1 gal. #75 Polar Bear Urethane Alkyd Semi-Gloss Enamel Interior/Exterior Paint is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absolute favorite paint, ever. I discovered this paint when I was refinishing my kitchen cabinets. After realizing how hard and durable this paint is once dried, I was hooked. I use this paint for everything trim related. I’ve even used it outside on all of our windows, garage doors, doors, everything. It is expensive, but it’s worth every single penny. As long as your area is prepped correctly with the right primers and surface, this paint will last far beyond what you’ll ever need it to. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest way to paint cabinets I am in the middle of a massive home renovation (and I've got 2 small kids) so oil paints for cabinets was never even on the table! The Alklyd paint is amazing. It is a very nice, smooth application and I can work on a cabinet in the kitchen during my kids nap time without having to worry about being out in the garage because of fumes. I used 3 coats on my cabinets (because I'm picky) but 2 would do the trick. It dries nice and tough and I'm not worried as much about scratching and wear and tear - it's a lot better than using a basic paint for something that takes such a beating. I highly recommend it if you're remodeling a kitchen and you're on a budget - painting cabinets can add so much to a space and this is the stuff to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for trim and doors I tried the regular semi-gloss paint by Behr, then someone recommended me this paint. It is much easier to apply and even though the dry time between coats is longer then regular latex paint it is well worth it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not cover well I am painting a household of trim. The paint needs 2 to 3 coats. It does not blend well as you are painting. It also leaves stroke marks. May need a fourth coat. Disappointed.

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 Best paint for trim Bought this paint after being advised it was chip resistant and self leveling, fairly bullet proof for our needs. Used a sprayer to apply and even though was told it didn’t need to be thinned I did anyways at 15% which was perfect. Went on thick and dried quicker than brush application, applied at 50° F and was dry after about 4 hours. After second coat and temp was going down was going down in evening brought inside and kicked up the heat in the house, left overnight and it felt like a baked on coating, totally smooth as well, it has been fantastic. Looks so good going to start replacing more baseboards and trim through the house to give it that smooth finish. Used an airless sprayer with a .030 nozzle thinned to 15% with tap water 50° outdoor temperature direct sunlight Utah weather. Had a test piece touch and see if it was dry enough for second application. Couldn’t be happier with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love it I was redoing my kitchen cabinets 2 months ago went in and talked to Kathy in Piqua about painting them again. She told me to use a primer under this paint to get the paint to stick better we colored the primer the same color, then I painted one coat of this paint it was fantastic. Kathy said I would love this product and I do. It went on so nice and smooth , wipes down so easy, looks like enamel cleaned up like latex highly recommended it. I will be using it on all my trim work next time I paint my trim. LOVE IT. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Choice After a failed start due to some bad info I got from Home Depot, I was recommended to use this paint for my kitchen cabinets. After priming my outdated brown laminate cabinets this paint went on great. being impatient I waited about an hour before applying my second coat (which went on with no issue) and after 2 hours actually placed the cabinet doors back on (and applied a 3rd coat). I am sure if I waited the recommended 4 hrs between coats I would have needed only 2 coats. This is a great paint, leveled off amazingly since I was worried about brush strokes and dried really fast. I only gave it a 4 out of 5 because the curing process is taking a bit longer than I like. It's completely dry but hasn't hardened enough for me to put the hardware on the doors yet without scratching the paint. I recommend this paint for cabinets!
