Superior Lacquers - Water Clear


These lacquers are composed mainly of acrylic and butyrate resins. Both of the latter have proven color fastness and color retention over many years. We proudly present them as the finest, most resistant, durable lacquer finishes where water clear (or the complete absence of) color is demanded. These finishes are designed to be clear in color so they may be applied over bare wood, light stains or pigmented lacquers such as the popular "pickle" finishes. The color of the lacquer will not distort or discolor the effect of the basecoat or stain. These lacquers contain UV absorbers and have been specifically formulated for clarity and good durability.

Uses: Used primarily by professional painting contractors as a protective finish over a natural grain, a light stain, or a light colored pigmented lacquer on new wood cabinets, trim or furniture. A good quality product for the furniture refinisher.
