Our Professional Clear Gloss Lacquer has been specially formulated to produce a deep gloss finish for interior or exterior projects in two to four coats.
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 will generally be enough over a properly sealed surface for a superb gloss finish. Use our Professional Sealer Spray for the best results. We recommend at least four coats and then polish with pastes and creams for a glass-like finish.
Overcoat with our Microcrystalline Wax for a smooth feeling and fingerprint-resistant top coat.
Use in combination with our Intrinsic Colour Collection, sealers, oils and waxes to create your own finishing regime.
Two Minute Tutorial
~ Basic Application
- Sand your work down to at least 400 grit and ensure surface is free from dust, grease and moisture;
- Prepare the surface with a suitable sealer and ensure it has fully dried.
- 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 to four coats is usually sufficient;
- Lightly cut back the lacquer between dry coats for an even finish;
- Under normal conditions, this Professional Lacquer can be mechanically buffed in under 3 hours.
- For a glass-like finish, use abrasive pastes
Use for finishing decorative wood-turned items on a lathe, flat woodwork or other items requiring a tough lacquer finish.
