    Used EM6500 pigmented lacquer to paint some cabinets (sanded down finish and used Stix primer) using a Wagner Control Spray Max. Did a dark tinted color which Target Coatings matched perfectly (Hale Navy). Did two coats on non visual side and four on finished side, turned out perfect. Topped it with EM7000 high build, cross linker and retarder using the Fine Finish Wagner sprayer (smaller needle). Three coats with scuffing between using light grey/maroon 3M pads. This turned out perfect as well and exceeded my expectations. We started using/testing with BM Advance but it takes a while to cure. Clearly the Emtech combo was the right choice.

    I’ve been using the EM5000 primer and EM6500 pigmented laquer to refinish furniture I buy and sell on Marketplace. The product lays down beautifully with mu Fuji 4 stage sprayer. Besides being a great product at a great price the support from the company has been fantastic when I’ve needed it which is difficult to find these days. If you’re thinking of trying it you won’t be sorry.
