Latex sandwiched in Uro enamels ???

Hi folks,
I know todays clears are pretty forgiving but thought I'd ask here first.
Painting some porcelain pieces for a customer that brought me their own paint. I had to prime them first with the Omni MP282 primer. The basecoat is a latex the customer brought me to use. After the basecoat, I want to clear the pieces.
Will this be okay to clear with uro clears such as Deltron DC3000?
I'll have a latex sandwiched between two uros ...
What do you all think? No problem or asking for trouble?
Thanks,
Phil

      DCC 3000 or 4000 should work just fine. Latex based coatings, because of their water based solvents seldom react to even the hard solvents such as PPG DT series, or even lacquer thinner. I would't... more

      Hi Phil, It's too bad they won't go for having the base color mixed in an automotive base coat, then you could just follow proper procedure (hint-hint). I looked your scenario up on several art... more

        Thanks Jay and Grump. I decided to play it safe and mixed HOK base coats to a very close match to the latex. I hate doing work twice ;)

          Hi Phil, It's probably a far better decision that you made there, fella! I hope it all goes well. Later Jay

      towards the trouble side. With latex not being as stable as uros, I would think many things could occur, such as expansion and contraction differences. One way to find out, try it on a test piece.
