I don't see how:blink:I understand. I use it in all of the mud for the skim coat. (not just for touch up) Sure knocks down the joint flash. The painter can use any cheap primer and still no flash.
There is enough left in the mud to seal it so it won't flash. I have seen the mud show a different sheen through orange peel. (regular mud) Especially if the painter used a cheap primer. This stops that. Unless you sand all of the color off down to the other coat. Then you might have sanded too far.I don't see how:blink:
Lets say were talking final coat on screws for example, some call the finale coat on screws a sanding coat. After you sand, how much of that finale coat is left behind ????????
Flashing is from 2 different surface types, one smooth, one rough. So I don't get it:blink:
I half to admit , this never miss product gets me confused on it's exact function:yes:We are talking two different types of flashing. One is the texture difference. And I agree with you. Never/Miss won't help that type. But it sure does on the flashing sheen through the primer and paint. And that type will flash even through knockdown. This being my experience, not just my opinion. Since N/M is a sort of acrylic, it seals the mud and is a touch harder to sand, but seals it and stops the porosity difference. But for smooth wall, you need to coat the whole wall to stop the texture difference between the paper and mud. And N/M has a product called Final Coat that is added to the mud and makes a very nice finish. In my opinion...
That's where I would half to see a wall with one side done with regular mud, and the other with never miss. Just a simple 10 foot long wall. Then paint it. Draw a line dead down the middle, then see if anyone can notice a difference from either side. If it's true what you can say it can do, then I would be like you, I would want the product to come in white:yes:Your painters must use a primer good enough to stop the sheen difference between the mud and the paper or you would see the benefit of this product. That part far out weighs the color advantage. I would prefer just white (I get tired of people asking about the color). I can look around the house and know if I have or haven't hit this or that joint or bead. Don't need it color coded. But when it stops the joint flash, well I'll spend money to do that.
