Anyone mix Souther Polyurethanes primers and clears with House of Kolor bases?

Just like the title says, has anyone mixed SPI primers and/or clears with a House of Kolor basecoat???? Looking to see if I can safely save some money from the top of the line House of Kolor stuff.

Thanks!

they always say not to mix them up, and SPI says their stuff is compatible with almost everyone's system though. The don't make any bases, so obviously their stuff is going to be compatible with the majority of stuff. If you ask the other companies, their stuff is only compatible with the rest of their system that they sell. I have heard a few horror stories of incompatible mixing of components.

Just like BK said, Chuck. Not a problem. I have two customers that are doing the exact thing you are asking about with HOK bases. Cheers!!!!

Chuck, check out their web site. Up to 13 bases now and the list seems to be growing weekly. Nothing but the best tints used in the bases. Of course. And the prices of SPI's bases are very reasonable.

Now that SPI has an intercoat clear one can use the SEM base concentrates and make your own so to speak..

Call Spi and get a read on that one..but the next ime I do a candie I will use the epoxy primer as my base or ground coat and then lay my base over that..

Usually, the horror stories are from the improper mixing of the products. Using a regular reducer for something like Dupont Chromabase, where it requires a basemaker, is an example. If you follow the directions, like was said, you'll have no problem. Of course, the PPG people will tell you that their produts only work with their products. That way they sell you $2000, or $3000 in paint supplies, when you can get by with 1/2 of that.

A friend of mine bought a qt of PPG primer for what I pay for a gallon of SPI, and I think the SPI is alot better. Atleast it sprayed better for me.
