Forum Title: Southwest builders Fast dry
Looking for pro's and con's on Southwest Builders fast dry alkyd. Ive been spraying Pro Classic oil, but im looking for something with a faster dry time. Ive been told to check out the southwest. Im looking at spraying cabinets with it. Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I used it for about 18 yrs and 4 street of dreams homes. Thinned approx 15-20%. Not as fast of re-coat as it used to be, but still dry to touch in about 1-1.5hrs on verticals with adequate heat & air flow. Highly undervalued product IMO. If I were to use it again, I'd preheat the paint to 85 degrees Fahrenheit, thin 5% mineral spirits, and spray away. Only potential drawback is it can be tricky to brush, even with an extender/retarder. Doesn't level near as well as some alkyds when brushing, but hey, it's quick-dry, wuddya expect?
