Can I use Forton VF-774 in FMG?

No. Not all white, milky polymers are created equal. Even though both VF-774 and VF-812 are all acrylic co-polymers, they are not identical chemically and provide different finished properties. VF-774 will not cross-link as the VF-812 does, so it will not provide the moisture resistance of VF-812.
