    I’ve been spraying Cromax pro for the past 10 months and it’s the same as standoblue and color match sux and blending is a pain in the ass dry time is so slow if u have any issues in the booth u might as well just wipe it off and start again and if u can go with Sikkens autowave it puts dupont and standox water to shame and did u meet Jim Holmer at the ATL training center

    I watched a few of these videos a couple weeks ago and was intrigued with the product. I don’t know much about it, just looks like a spray on wrap. When I get some time I’d like to contact the company and try and get some to do a video, see what its all about. Interesting stuff!

    Same here I had no choice in the switch and would much rather stay with Sikkens and Jim is the best instructor I’ve had and pretty cool to hang out with but if ur like me u will be able to make standoblue work but ur not goin to like it ive heard the clears are pretty good but I haven’t used standox clears so I can’t tell u from using them just from what I’ve heard

    I bet they said they could do more and color match would be better. Thats the crap my jobber gave me when they took my Sikkens machine away and I keep asking my jobber when will I be able to do more and when will color match start to match and they keep saying everyone else using it loves it so I call and talk to the painters not the managers and the painters hate it and the managers say it good cause they r the ones getting a kick back

    ive been painting since1991 i have only used basf and sikkens but sikkens isby far most user friendly products andbest color match i have ever used

    I’ve been spraying since 2004 and have used PPG lesonal BASF dupont chroma base Sikkens and I agree Sikkens is by far the easiest and most user friendly

    X3 on sikkens.I have been spraying since 1988,used most of the major brands and have always come back to sikkens.I have been spraying sikkens and utech since 2002 at the shop that I work at now.I have been happy with the color match and how user friendly it has been for us.We changed over to autowave in april 2009 and haven’t looked back.Superior 250 clear is the icing on the cake 😉

    I agree I’m 28 and I don’t know anyone in this business younger then I am and if the r they don’t want to do it for long they say it’s to much work or to hot and do nothing but complain I keep telling the guys that come in u have to earn respect and work ur way up but they don’t want to and just wan to start making big money just starting out And they don’t know how to do anything

    thats the very reason i dontwork a helper any more i just do it my self cant find anybody thats wants to work andwhen you do they usally try to backstab you andtakeyour job or the boss puts them on the line and youhave tohold there hand when theyget in ajam and they will just give it a little time so ijust do it my self if theys morework than i can do let them hire another expereinced painter i dont worry about it when i started out i learned every thing i could allways respected the guys i worked under and worked my way up and it took me proably 10years to become a so called (lead)painter every body now wants to start out on top it takes expereince to do this job with consistency where you can make money
