I forgot to take a picture, but I did get some gray on the rag, a LITTLE gray, but I imagine if I rubbed it for an hour I could go thru. ??
I checked again today an NOTHING, I mean NO-THING. I rubbed and rubbed and rubbed, HARD, it did NOTHING.

I tried it with Lacquer thinner, cheap enamel reducer and high quality urethane reducer, NO-THING.

So far I am liking it.


Do we detect a possible convert here???

Now, to complete your testing, grab a piece of wet/dry paper, 220-400 and do a normal wet sanding run. It does sand a bit harder then any of the standard 2Ks, but will, which the DuPont/Nason or PPG wont.

(I've been a SPI thug though patchless for several years now)
