A hardwearing water based lacquer, a good alternative to solvent based products. It dries to a very high gloss. Whilst drying, the resin components cross-link to form a coating which is actually tougher than Melamine Lacquer. Apply with brush or roller, allowing two hours between coats. We recommend the use of acrylic sanding sealer first to give a smooth base on which to build the lacquer.

Top StuffThis is our go to finish when we want a fuss free, easy to apply hardwearing finish. Like most waterbased finishes it is sensitive to extreme temperatures, but brushed on at normal UK temperatures it works very well indeed.

Waste of money - do not botherUsed 2 coates acrylic sanding sealer and sanded bowl to 2000 grit. Applied the acrylic lacquer with foam brush as instructions - dried with ridges and uneven - had to sand back to 120 grit. The aerosol might be better but thank goodness for melamine and good old wax. This lacquer not suitable for quality finish on lathe.

There is nothing better!I have tried them all; the water borne gloss finishes: Ronseal, Dulux, General Finishes, Polyvine, you name it. Chestnut beats them all. The use is very easy and quick. Almost no brush marks with or without the use of Sanding Sealer. Use undiluted for the best results.
