Chestnut 500ml Melamine Lacquer

Chestnut 500ml Melamine Lacquer

R595,00 incl VAT
When you’re looking for a hard-wearing, heat and water-resistant, quick-drying gloss lacquer you need to look no further than Melamine Lacquer. Based on cellulose technology, Melamine Lacquer has a catalyst suspended within it; when the lacquer is in the can it is inert but once applied and exposed to the air, the lacquer dries within five minutes like cellulose and then the catalyst kicks in and the lacquer go on to chemically cure to give a more durable coating. 90% of the curing process happens in the first seven days after application, making the lacquer very hard-wearing, the remaining 10% of the process can take up to two weeks more to give maximum toughness, something you only need to consider if the lacquer is going to be subjected to extremely hard use. Melamine Lacquer is designed to give a full gloss finish which will be achieved with a very careful application. It can be applied by brush (foam or bristle), cloth or by spraying. Where necessary, use Cellulose Thinners to dilute the product – especially helpful if working on a large area. The gloss level of Melamine Lacquer can be increased by using Burnishing Cream once it has dried, and it can also be overcoated with Friction Polish (to increase the depth of the shine) or WoodWax 22 or Microcrystalline Wax (for a more natural feel).
