I've used it mostly on epoxy and haven't had any adhesion issues yet. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.
Does this sealer wet out any burn throughs and hide them as a resin finish coat would?
thanks all, i'll give it a go and perhaps next time take a bit more car with my rail glassing :)
In my experience it hides the burn thru for a couple of sessions and then you start to see the weave.
Update on burnishing. Its not as easy as it sounds. You really need to get on it to make it burnish. OPther than that it went on really smooth and seems to have made a very reliable seal over the entire board. Ther were some very small runs sort of near the rails, or as minor as a run can be without a drip. Pretty much so minor you had to feel it with your fingers rather than see the run, but thats what was really hard to get smooth. Ultimately I took, I think 400 grit and knocked it down ever so slightly before going back to the maroon pad and finishing it off. Overall happy with the outcome and glad I did not have to wetsand and polish 3 boards at once.
Wipe it on with a foam staining pad or a blue sponge, cotton diaper etc. Wipe around the bottom edge of the rail to prevent drips. Don’t brush it on and don’t put it on heavy. One coat is ok, but two is more even and seals better. No brush marks and no heavy build. This is not resin. You’re not trying to replace a hot coat or gloss. You’re sealing a sanded board. Wipe those burn thrus with Styrene before hand. It will burnish easy with one hand on the Orbital Sander if you follow my directions. Been doing this for years. Always comes out nice. Mud, handprints and burn thrus are nixed. Generic “Acrylic Sealer”. For tile and vinyl floors. No it is not Futures Floor Wax. Not even similar. I buy the Behr because it is easily accessed at any Home Depot. There are other brands that can be bought at places like Smart & Final. If it doesn’t look like Skim Milk, you’ve got the wrong stuff.
I've only used it once. Turned out very nice. Used maroon and gray Scotch Brite pads under a (rectangular) orbital and/or finishing sander, I got a nice semi-gloss finish.
Sanded epoxy to 150 grit.
Applied thin coat of Behr. Let dry
Smoothed with maroon SB pad under orbital sander.
Applied second thin coat of Behr. Let dry.
Smoothed with gray SB Pad.
(Done right, fills pin holes in epoxy.)

As mcding showed it here for long "secret sauce" is acrylic resin in water product. In europe seabase have one called white flash with same whitener enhancer than some new epoxy resin. At home depot you can find those products for sealing concrete but also for plastic floor renovation and, thicker ones for glassing wood floor, sometimes it's call "acrylic varnish". You can sprayed them too.
That’s correct. Basically same stuff. Takes a little technique and expertise to spray as it is about as thick as water and runs easily.
