Why is it important to use the correct sealer under waterborne basecoat versus solventborne basecoat?

Sealers are specifically developed to work with each type of basecoat to prevent lifting or wrinkling of the film. To avoid any potential lift windows, it is important to only use the sealer designed for that system. For example, when using ENVIROBASE® High Performance waterborne basecoat, you should use ECS sealers. If you’re a fan of solventborne basecoat like DELTRON® 2000 (DBC), DAS sealers should be your product of choice.

While it’s important to use all of the products within a given brand from start to finish, it’s especially important to stick with the correct sealer. Don’t take a chance that your paint job will wrinkle.
