Mastering the professional painting craft requires depth of knowledge and insight, years of experience in a variety of situations and projects, and knowing the ins and outs of your paint.

Latex Agent is the perfect example. With their lineup of latex paint additives, there are more reasons than ever to start using additives on the job site. Additives can not only save master painters time and money, they can render older, more traditional, professional methods and steps in the painting process unnecessary. Plus, they offer ample opportunity for up selling customers on a more profitable paint job.

Each are designed for different applications: Oil Bond on oil-based paints, finishes, lacquers and other coated surfaces, Metal Bond on metal.
Additives Prevent Sanding Prep
