Woodshops that are looking to reduce bottlenecks in the booth and increase production, may be interested in OmniBuild™ Pro from Chemcraft. Dubbed the ‘smooth operator’, it’s a conversion varnish primer/surfacer that is specifically designed to tackle challenging substrate variables – including routed MDF and solid wood. It builds a remarkably thick and smooth foundation for top-coating interior woodwork, and its high-solids formula provides superior build, sag resistance and hide.
OmniBuild Pro has distinct advantages over the competition. Thanks to its easy-to-apply superior build and fast stack time because it’s quick to sand, the primer benefits users who are looking for a production-friendly product. Other benefits include a true 24-hour pot-life, impressive hold-out and film build, minimal shrinkage, and an outstanding vertical hand that provides superior sag resistance. It also works seamlessly with CHEMLIFE® 24 and CHEMLIFE® 24 PLUS high-quality, post-catalyzed conversion varnishes to deliver optimum results as part of a complete coating system.
In addition to being easy to sand, OmniBuild Pro reduces sanding burn-through on edges. It has high solids (63% by weight and 44% by volume), and impressive dry times. At room temperature (68°F), it becomes tack-free in ten to fifteen minutes, dry to sand in twenty to thirty minutes, and dry to stack in two to three hours. In a forced dry at 122°F, it can be sanded in fifteen to twenty minutes and stacked in less than an hour. It’s applied in one or two coats and sanded using 240/320 grit stearated paper between coats. The second and subsequent coats are applied the same day as the previous coat is sanded.
OmniBuild Pro Primer has a 12-month shelf life, a long pot-life, and a quick stack time – all of which combine to make it very production-friendly. This is the new performance standard in varnish priming.
