Spray Ultra™ Clear Conversion Varnish in light, even coats of no more than 3-4 wet mils. If a second coat is desired, scuff sand with 320 grit stearated sandpaper and apply within four hours of previous coat. Total film build of the entire system, including topcoats, should not exceed 4 dry mils. Excessive build may lead to poor adhesion, cracking or cold check problems. If a retarder is necessary, use Mohawk Conversion Varnish Reducer Retarder (M650-1057).
Note: Total dry film of the entire system should not exceed 4 dry mil. All products should be stirred properly before being used and also continuously agitated while in use to insure product consistency from start to finish. Filtering at every opportunity is suggested. The system should be pre-tested on the wood to be finished under application conditions. Mixing with other products or finish systems is not recommended. Mohawk Finishing Products will not be held liable for finish failure resulting from mixing products or systems. This product is formulated for interior applications and is not recommended or tested for exterior use.
Ultra™ Clear Conversion Varnish (M615-29XX) is manufactured at spray viscosity. Mohawk Conversion Varnish Reducer/Retarder (M650-1057) is recommended for equipment clean-up. If second coat of Ultra™ Clear Conversion Varnish (M615-29XX) cannot be applied within 4 hours after first coat, allow to dry 24 hours, scuff sand surface just prior to recoating with 320 grit stearated sandpaper and remove sanding dust. Heavy sanding of previous coats should be avoided. Stainless steel spray equipment is recommended to avoid iron contamination (discoloration). Pot life is approximately 12 hours. Flush equipment and fluid lines at the end of each day with Mohawk Conversion Varnish Reducer/Retarder (M650-1057).
