Pre Catalyzed Lacquers (PC10, PC30, PC50, PC90)
The Goudey line of Pre Catalyzed Lacquers offers a water clear hard finish with greater durability and resistance to marring, water, alcohol as well as household cleaning products than traditional nitrocellulose lacquers. Pre Catalyzed Lacquers have become the finishing industries preferred single component solvent based coating for commercial and residential applications on interior wood furniture, kitchen cabinetry and millwork, bathroom vanities, bedroom furniture, general millwork and custom made solid body wood guitars.
This series of Pre Catalyzed lacquers has been formulated to offer a fast drying, medium solids film build with excellent sanding properties that is easy to use. This PC series can be recoated after 45 – 90 minutes of drying time depending on the environmental conditions and applied film thickness. Pre Catalyzed lacquers must be scuff sanded between coats to ensure proper film adhesion. Reduce with 788 Lacquer Thinner.
Note: Goudey Pre Catalyzed Lacquers have been formulated as a self-sealing product and therefore it is not recommended that they be applied over traditional Nitrocellulose Sanding Sealers. Reducing the initial finishing coat between 25-30 %, or more depending on the wood substrate, with 788 Lacquer Thinner should suffice as a sealer coat. As with all chemical cure finishing products, applying light to medium spray passes per coat assures proper curing times and the optimum hardness properties of the finish between coats. Applying heavy spray passes per coat can result not only in longer cure times for recoating but can result in a lessening of the lacquer’s hardness properties at the base coats, leading to a softer more easily marred finish.
