One Hour Enamel Paint also known as OHE, is an incredibly tough, tenacious, fast-drying acrylic enamel for interior and exterior use on surfaces that require a quick return to service and an abrasion-resistant finish. Our One Hour Enamel (OHE) is a total game-changer for both professionals and DIY’ers alike! Our water-based enamel formula made primarily for Kitchen Cabinets and Front Doors, has a stone-like Satin topcoat built-in. It is a great choice for painting cabinets, trim, or updating exterior and interior doors. This quick cure formula knocks out projects in record time.
Lay down enough paint so that it has enough product to self-level but avoid drips. I like using the Wise Owl Premium 1.5" or 2" Micro Angle Brush.
Do not use Wax over Enamel.
The recommended recoat time is 2 hours.
Use our Stain Eliminating Primer before for superior adhesion.
Use a microfiber 3/16 inch roller. If spraying, you may thin with water if needed but not more than 10%.
If using Glaze over Enamel, no need to use Varnish first. Apply glaze right over enamel. Must seal the glaze with Varnish or Clear OHE.
Do NOT use clear shellac as a primer with One Hour Enamel! It will cause the paint to crackle.
Coverage per Quart: Approximately 160 square feet
