for those that have used metallic surfacers...

Post by vance galliher » Tue Apr 25, 2017 8:28 pm

which do you prefer for exterior use... triangle coatings sophisticated finishes or modern masters metal effects ? I've used both with mixed results.
thanks for any reply

Vance, I doubt there's much difference between the two, though I use Sophisticated finishes more than Modern Masters.

At one time they were separate companies, but Sophisticated (Triangle Coatings) bought out Modern Masters long ago. Both products consist of a latex carrier with real, atomized metals mixed in, designed for interior and exterior application.

I've only had one problem over the years, due to insufficient prep, not failure of the product.

What are you trying to do, and what were the mixed results?
