Time Is Money On the Job Site
Most would estimate that 70 - 80 percent of actual cost to the professional painting contractor is their time for labor. It’s literally the most expensive ingredient: your time. Much of time on a painting job site is spent on activities other than painting, like sanding, sanding clean up, and priming.

- Any oil-painted or glossy surfaces
No Priming. No sanding. No mess.

How Oil Bond Works
How does it work? Pre-treat by wiping Oil Bond on the surface. Wait an hour. Add Oil Bond to your paint. Paint the pre-treated surface. The new coat of paint cross links to the pre-treated surface and permanently bonds. Oil Bond cross links to the pre-primed product left behind when you wipe it on, like an adhesive. This creates the same effect sanding is intended to create.
Oil Bond-enhanced paint will adhere to surfaces that are oily or glossy, like clear coat wood finishes, interior/exterior trim, interior/exterior doors, kitchen cabinets, and much more. The wiped-on Oil Bond contains cleaning surfactants, deglossing agents and cross-linking resins. Use Oil Bond during the first coat of paint only. Additional coats do not require the Oil Bond additive. Then, allow to dry as directed by the paint instructions.
