Getting the most from your Lacquer Finishes
When & Why To Use
Flash-Off™ Control Solvent & Lacquer Blush Retarder
|Use Lacquer Retarder
to avoid Blushing –
Lacquer retarder is used to help eliminate “blushing”, the white foggy look caused
by HIGH humidity or rainy and cool/cold weather. This blush sometimes is only observed in areas where the build of the coating is thicker such as bull-nosed edges.
Blush retarder keeps the finish wet longer allowing the trapped moisture to escape the coating. Another advantage is an even flow of the lacquer.
To Eliminate Orange Peel
|Flash-Off Control Solvent Use:
Add 3 to 5 ounces, Flash-OFF per gallon,
to Mohawk air dry nitrocellulose,
pre-catalyzed and post-catalyzed lacquer coatings. More Flash-Off™ may be added,
up to10% by volume if needed, but that will increase dry time.
Do Not add Flash Off Control to water base lacquers or conversion varnishes.
(NOT for use with Shellac)
