Title: AC2 treated lumber
Post by: mlappin on April 07, 2020, 11:15:50 AM
Have a new sign to make, whatís the recommended primer and paint for the new AC2 lumber?

I went to Menards awhile back as we have a new mega one, even treated is kept inside, figured it would be dryer than the stuff Iíve seen water running off when they bring it into the store at Lowes. Moisture meter says itís under 15% but water still beads so not sure its dry enough yet to paint.

I've heard it needs to dry several weeks. I dunno.
I just got some signs ordered from signs.com. Super fast turnaround and shipping. We'll see what they look like.

I talked to Sherwin Williams and they have a few recommendations, for the AC2 treated you can use an acrylic primer sealer and use anything over that, or a outdoor oil based primer/sealer can be used. They recommended the oil based as I have equipment enamel in the shop for painting the Olivers.
