This professional grade Black Gloss Lacquer has been formulated to produce a deep black gloss finish in just two coats on most wooden surfaces.
Dry and handleable in 10 to 20 minutes under normal conditions, it is possible to produce glass-like finishes within hours of application. Drying time may vary depending on ambient temperature and humidity.
Two coats are generally enough over a properly sealed surface for a deep black gloss finish. Use our Microcrystalline Wax for a fingerprint-resistant overcoat.
We recommend four coats and then polishing with pastes and creams for a glass-like finish. Apply two coats onto open-grained woods like ash or woods with added texture, and use our embellishing waxes over the top when dry to enhance the remaining grain or textured pattern.
Two Minute Tutorial
~ Basic Application
- Sand your work down smooth to at least 400 grit and ensure surface is free from dust, grease and moisture;
- Prepare the surface well with a suitable sealer and ensure it has fully dried. We recommend our Pro Spray Sealer when using this product;
- Shake can with the cap on for at least two minutes before use. Protect lathe and surfaces;
- Avoid breathing spray – Use appropriate PPE and use in a well ventilated area;
- Apply light coats 200mm from the piece, giving time for the lacquer to dry between coats. Two coats is usually sufficient;
- Under normal conditions, this Professional Lacquer can be mechanically buffed in under 3 hours.
- For a glass-like finish, use abrasive pastes and creams according to manufacturers instructions.
Use for finishing decorative wood-turned items on a lathe, flat woodwork or other items requiring a tough glossy black lacquer finish.
