Sealer Advice Requested.

I've always used epoxy as a sealer. It works great, but is slow. With the cusp of the painting season upon us (well here anyway; it snowed a couple days ago ), I want to shift gears a little and speed up my dog slow routine by using a dedicated sealer instead of epoxy.

SPI sealer- sandable? Can you denib it? And it's "tintable;" is it white? Is it necessary to tint?

Kirker- OK stuff? Any advantages or disadvantages to using it?

I searched a couple different times, lots of threads, but not the info I was looking for.

Any tips, products, etc are appreciated. Thanks.

SPI does not produce the "tintable" sealer any longer.
They have yet to update the tech info on the web site,Barry's "working on it".
The have a completly new sealer now.Much better product as well as colors.
It is listed in the pricing info however.
This will answer any questions you have about it.

SPI Sealer

Sealer is basically used for,
1. Provide a chemical bond as it has a short time window to spray base on as well as cover minor sand scratchs.
2.Change to the correct "primer" color or enhance the base color.
3. Seal up an existing paint job such as a good OEM for another job.

Sealer needs to be sprayed a slick as possiable. Think of it as your first coat of base or paint. It can be nib'd or if out of window or peeled,sanded and reshot.
Sealer can be a double edged sword.
If applied and sprayed on properly,can provide a superior finish.
If applied badly or wait too long before basing and it's a nightmare.
