I have a question about using acrylic clear coats and Behr Low-Lustre Sealer. I do a lot of repairs and used to use Painter's Touch 2X Satin Clear spray but have recently started using the Behr Sealer as recommended by many Swaylocks users. They work fine over repairs - painted or not - on parts of the board that are not waxed, but how do they hold up under wax?
This is particularly a concern when trying to colour match a repair. I sometimes use just Painter's Touch 2X spray paint for plastic and it adheres really well to both epoxy and poly finishes and is super durable, can be wet sanded and polished to a nice shine without a clear coat. Krylon is equally good but more difficult to find - at least in Canada. However, it's often hard to colour match with the limited colours available in a can. Doing a colour match requires using some sort of less dense acrlic paint, which requires a clear coat over top to protect it from the water and elements.
Will the clear coat or sealer flake or peel off when removing the wax? I haven't done any long-term testing but in the short term, using mineral spirits or alcohol to remove wax (which I often do) will strip the clear coat/sealer right off the board. What are others using to avoid this problem short of having to use a 2-part automotive clear coat? I have also tried puting a coat of epoxy over painted repairs, which seems to work well if properly prepped, but I generally end up buring through the epoxy and into the paint when sanding.
Thanks for the help!
