This is the real deal and saves so much time for me as a painting contractor. I was skeptical at first and had to do a few tests, latex paint with oil bond passed my scratch test over oil base trim very well. Oil base is very messy, smells in my client's home, takes forever to dry, is expensive to clean up and is all around time consuming. Oil bond eliminates all of these problems for me! I highly recommend!
Pictures show a recent cabinet job I did. Cabinets were stained previously and latex paint would not stick at first. I added oil bond and it stuck perfectly even right after drying. Made my life a lot easier!

I loved the latex agent oil bond product. The older house I have has oil based paint on the wood trim. I previously have had issues with the new latex peeling off while removing the tape I used for masking the edges. With the latex oil bond product applied to the wood trim and overlapping onto the wall 3 -4 inches I did not have any areas of latex peel off during tape removal. I also used the bond product to apply over doors that have had the paint removed from them. No issues with the new latex bonding to the old slight residue of varnish that was present.
Very pleased with the product. Easy to apply and it works.

My wife used this on a stairway paint project. Worked beautifully. We didn't sand, or prime. We used a good floor paint, with Oil Bond. With all the traffic going up and down, it has been solid, perfect. Highly recommend!
First time using oil bond. Rather than the old method of sanding, priming, and finally painting when going over stain or polyurethane, oil bond you wipe the product on the wood, mix some with the paint, and then simply paint.
Huge time saver if you have a bunch of old wood trim to paint. A month later and the paint looks great, no flaking or peeling- it is adhering quite well.
Easy Instructions, Easy to Apply, Easy to Use, Looks Great

Latex Agent makes amazing products!
I found a discarded dresser from the 1960s on the side of the road. It was very beat up but I knew it was solid wood and could be restored to a beautiful piece of furniture. I wanted to redo this piece for my granddaughter but needed to find a way to make Latex paint more durable, especially for the top of the dresser. I spent weeks doing research on the best way to accomplish this. I found both Latex Hard Coat and Latex Oil Bond on the Home Depot website. After more research I learned that these products were highly recommended by "This Old House". That was good enough for me to give them a try. I used Latex Oil Bond for the first coat. This eliminated the need to strip and sand the dresser. Then I used Latex Hard Coat for the next 2 coats of paint. I can't believe how hard the paint dried! I would never attempt a painting project again without these products.
They aren't cheap but a little goes a long way. I have enough left for my next 4 or 5 painting projects. I found the drying time to be the same with the additives and didn't notice a change in the color of the paint. I just wish Home Depot would carry these products in their store.

I was skeptical. To tell the truth, it was all I could do to keep myself from light sanding the furniture I was painting, but I wanted to see if this product really worked. I cleaned the furniture with TSP. When I was ready to paint, I rubbed the oil bond on all the surfaces with a cloth as directed. I added 16 oz of oil bond to my gallon of latex paint as directed and sprayed with HVLP. Long story short...it worked. Worked really well.

The product works well but I would recommend that the user apply two coats of the liquid to the the item you are planning to paint before starting to paint. This way there should be no chance of areas that were missed in the first application.
