View Full Version : Bottom paint question

04-12-2017, 06:55 AM
I have always used Interlux Micron CSC. I have 1/2 quart left and want to stay with it. My question is can I mix different types of paint. I'm being told that Interlux Pacifica is far superior although I have had no buildup using the CSC.

I'm tending toward just buying another quart of CSC and staying with it.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Experts would say no.

But I have in the past. As long as the bases are the same. Like they thin with the same thinner then they will combine.

I have also painted where you won't see with one color paint and finished where you'll see with the newer paint.

Yeah, I know I can get cheap at times, but its the bottom, not like your taking a chance an nice varnish job.

Are they both ablative etc?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

You're right Mike. I stayed with the CSC

Got my paint yesterday. Jamestown Dist did a 24 hour turn around with a price competitive with Amazon.
