EM6500 substrate

Chris · Aug 12, 2019, 16:16


I received a set of Innocraft (Chinese ready-to-assemble brand) kitchen cabinets that were handled before the finish had dried. I'm looking to re-coat them -- hopefully with a custom color tint of EM6500 + cross-linker. Want to know the recommended method.

The coating on the cabinets now is white and is some kind of solvent based paint; acetone takes it off.

Should I attempt to strip these, sand and prime, or just scuff and HVLP spray over what's there?

I can perform more solvent tests, if required. I'm looking for high quality appearance (not too much build-up), durability, and the least amount of work ;)

Thanks for your help,

Hi Chris,

We would recommend the following:

Sanding with a 220 grit paper
then applying the HSF5000 Primer/Surfacer/Filler by Emtech
and finishing with the EM6500.

The cross-linker is not necessary.

Hope this helps!
