Mélange Modern Cabinetry Enamel
Mélange MODERN is a water-based urethane alkyd enamel formula, ideal for doors, trim, molding and cabinetry. MODERN may also be used on furniture when an enamel finish is desired. Mélange MODERN provides a flawless, smooth, satin sheen that cures to a rock-hard enamel finish for the extreme durability of traditional oil-based paints, but with the ease of water-based clean up.
