Kbs which formula???

10 posts in this topic

I've been using kbs for the last couple months and just realized the can I have says direct to metal formula.  Should I be using the high solids formula instead? Also will the direct to metal formula cause any problems, everything looks ok on the bait after they're cleared! I've cleared a bunch of baits but haven't tested any because of the weather.

I didn't mean to get it, I was gonna order the 1 quart can to dip longer baits and noticed it said direct to metal formula on the can I have now,  when I purchased it I intended on getting the high solids formula and when I received it I never noticed it until now!

I just looked on the kbs website and if you click on clear coats it's not even showing the high solids formula, all I see is the direct to metal formula. It does say it can be applied over painted surfaces,  so maybe it doesn't matter.... I dont know!!!

You could grab a bucket of water and submerge a couple of your lures for an hour or two and see how they hold up.  I've never used the direct to metal stuff.

I have no idea what you have, maybe an old container that is labeled different? Can you show us a picture? 

This is what you want, first line in the description says "Formulated to Apply Directly Over Other Coatings or Direct To Metal (DTM)!"

 Towards the bottom of the can is where it says direct to metal formula.

Looks like the same stuff just different label, maybe old stock. Maybe scan that QR barcode on a smartphone and see what it says, probably leads you to the instructions and safety for the current KBS diamond.

Just recieved my new can using the link above, it also matches the can pictured above.  So i guess there is no difference between the cans that said high solids formula and the ones that said direct to metal formula!
