Product Overview

Flat Out Flat is a self-crosslinking water-based topcoat that mimics the lustrous look and feel of wax. The increased matting agents used to create flat look cause this wood finish to have less clarity, show fingerprints more and provide slightly less durability than High Performance. It is recommended for low-use projects other than kitchen cabinets and table tops.

Is this recommended for a top coat for chalk painted furniture?

Asked by Reeny September 4, 2020

Answer

I would think it would be fine. I used mine on milk paint but I believe both finishes are pretty similar.

Does this yellow white paint?

Can I use this product over General Finishes oil based gel stain?

Asked by Elliej February 13, 2020

Answer

Yes! but the underlying finish has to be absolutely dry. When using a water based topcoat over an oil based stain, allow oil based finishes, such as Java Gel Stain, to dry at least 72 hours before coating with a water based topcoat.

Pretty tough stuff. I like that it's water based for easy clean up. I do recommend apply with a roller if you can. Dries very quick if you overlap or back brush you will get a cloudy look. It can be fixed but avoid it if you can. I would buy it again. Delivery was very quick.

General finishes it is a really good product. If you are not experienced with coatings, this is definitely the product for you. It is very forgiving and allows a very professional looking finish no matter what your experience and skill level is.

Excellent product. Easy to apply, looks good with one coat on most projects, but applying additional coats produces even better results.

Good product, used over a flat paint finish. It worked as I wanted it to be. If you are working on bare wood and going to to use a color paint over the wood I highly recommend using a primer & sealer over bare wood before using a color paint. any kind of top coat water base finishes might start yellowing the work.
