Precatalyzed Lacquers are
a furniture and kitchen cabinet grade system formulated with high-quality,
imported nitrocellulose and resins. They are formulated to meet or exceed
federal 680 VOC regulations. This system represents the intermediate
step between a conventional lacquer and conversion varnish. This is
a preferred system for light or natural stains where color retention
and stability are critical.
Preparation & Application
Preparation: Precatalyzed Lacquers are ready to use as packaged.
Mix or agitate throroughly before use. Thinning is not recommended for
airless application. Blush Retarder, L69, may be added in small amounts
if necessary in humid weather to prevent "blushing".
Because of the short dry time, this series of finishes must be applied
with professional spray equipment (A three coat self-sealing system
will provide the most durable finish. If a sealer is required, use Gem
Seal Conversion Sealer, 210-0008, for the first coat. The temperature
of the product will affect viscosity. All products are formulated to
produce the highest possible solids content that will allow proper spray
atomization without the addition of costly chemical solvents. This product
should be applied with a maximum wet film thickness of 4-5 mils per
coat, unreduced, with a maximum of three coats. When applied at this
wet film thickness the total dry film build of the coating system will
approximate 3 mils. The total dry film build of the coating system should
be no less than 2 and no more than 3 dry mils thick.
Use #500 Gem Coat Lacquer Thinner or SOL-9011 HAPs Free Lacquer Thinner
to clean all equipment. Dispose of in accordance with Federal, State,
and Local regulation regarding pollution.
