Professional Clear Satin Lacquer

This Professional Clear Satin Lacquer produces a silky feeling, hard wearing finish in just two coats on most wooden surfaces.
Dry and handleable in 10 to 20 minutes, it is possible to finish elegant pieces in under an hour. Drying time may vary depending on ambient temperature and humidity.

Two good coats of this satin lacquer should be enough to provide a suitably solid finish on most wooden surfaces. It will conform to grain and texture patterns exceptionally well without hiding them.
Apply some of the Intrinsic Colour Collection dyes to your work before using this to produce an elegantly coloured and finished piece.
For the best possible finish, always ensure that the surface you are applying it to is perfectly smooth, free from dust, scratches and properly sealed. Coverage: 1.25 – 1.75m2 per 400ml.

Basic Application

  1. Sand your work down smooth to at least 400 grit and ensure surface is free from dust, grease and moisture;
  2. Prepare the surface well with a suitable sealer and ensure it has fully dried. For best results, use our Pro Matt Sealer Spray and follow those instructions;
  3. Shake can with the cap on for at least two minutes before use;
  4. Avoid breathing spray. Use in a well ventilated area and wear appropriate PPE. Protect lathe and surfaces;
  5. Apply light coats 200mm from the piece, giving time for the lacquer to dry between coats;
  6. Lightly cut the lacquer back between dry coats for an even finish. Leave the final alone;
  7. Apply a coat or two of our Microcrystalline Wax for a fingerprint resistant overcoat.

Pro Finishing Tips

  • Satin lacquers are the easiest to apply as their surface is naturally uneven.
  • A poorly sealed surface will require more lacquer to cover it. Ensure you seal the piece properly.
  • If applying over open grained, it is advisable to clean the grain of as much sanding dust as possible, particular if you will be filling the grain later.
  • For best results, two coats is usually enough to achieve a desirable and smart looking finish.
  • Apply the spray in an arc with the lathe stationary. Turn the piece roughly 120° at a time and overlap each of the segments.
  • Each coat should lightly cover the entire surface. Too much, and the product will not lay evenly.
  • If you get a run through applying too much, allow it to dry completely, then sand that area back or cut it all off and start again before reapplying.
  • Clear the nozzle by spraying the product upside down, then replacing the lid after use.
  • Store in a cool dry place out of direct light, away from heat sources and protect from freezing.

Always read the product labels.
