painted my benchtop with white knight products as per directions, primer, laminate paint, benchtop clear, easy as, benchtop clear i used a short nap microfibre roller 6 inch, mixed at 3 to 1, ie 100 ml hardner, 300ml other stuff, total 400mls, youtube video is wrong, he says 2 to 1, probably why there are mixed results, work quick and keep a wet edge and lay it back once, dont go back over it, anyway it turned out perfect for me and looks great.
Questions & Answers
I’m painting my cupboards but would like a final seal to minimise paint chips from occurring down the track. Would the benchtop coat help with this? Has anyone had long lasting results with only the the primer and paint, no seal?
Results are not great with just the paint - the surface just isn't hard enough. I have had little luck with the White Knight product. The first time I used it, it went milky and didn't clear once dry. The second time I used the recommended roller and the finish was irregular and heavily textured. The third time I used a 4mm nap microfibre roller with average results. There were odd little white specks in it that couldn't be picked out. The fourth time, I used a Dulux product - it is cheaper, and also has a longer 'working' time - 10 days vs 1 hour for the White Knight. That was 2 weeks ago. So far, so good. But I don't know how it will wear long term. It's pretty hard at the moment and seems scratch resistant. Hope this helps. Good luck, Desiree
