Anyone here tried Sher-kem paint?

Hey Everyone,

I have been keeping my eye out for paint options for my bus. I have been looking for a timetable paint to give me more color options.

Today I came across some of the tractor guys using Sher-Kem from Sherwin Williams. They claimed it to be superior to Rustoleum. Deeper shine, better UV resistance and tintable.

Does anyone here have any experience with this product?

Thank you.

S.

Has anyone tried any Sherwin Williams paints?

If so, which one and how did it work for you?

My wife works at Benjamin Moore's R&D facility, so you can bet we won't be using Sherwin Williams when we say goodbye to the yellow. I'm not sure what we'll end up using, since she's the expert.

I used Kem Kromic primer and industrial enamel from Sherwin Williams.

Here is a link to my blog page about it:http://karrfamilykampingbus.blogspot...ed-no.html?m=1

I thought it was pretty easy. And it hasn't peeled or anything but it's only been about 10 months. The only thing I noticed is that it shows dirt really bad. I don't know if another coat or some clear coat would help with that.

When I paint the rest of the bus I'm going to find a different option.
