show off, :notworthyMost catalyzed lacquers are conversion varnishes. They are a two part system, the lacquer and the catalyst. A post cat conversion varnish is the standard of the industry for most cabinetry. It is a hard, durable and chemical resistant finish. It is slower to dry than a pre cat or nitrocellulose lacquer. But because there is a high catalyst ratio it will cure to about 85% within a 24 hour period. You must use it in a controlled environment. It needs to be greater than 65ºF to be used, otherwise it will fail to crosslink properly and you will get a much reduced durability.
What else you wanna know about it?
I agree with Gus and I usually use a Pre cat lacquer (ML Campbell MagnaMax). It is much easier to use, cheaper and the best thing is you can pour it back into the can. With a post cat if you don't use it, you throw it out. So you are making smaller batches and trying to be very accurate and mix up only what you need. With a pre cat I usually mix up 80 oz and stick it in the Kremlin. If I don't use it all I pour it back into the can.show off, :notworthy
I would rate my rep as excellent. The mobile rep is full of knowledge but hard to get a hold of.I use MagnaMax as well.. Havent heard of MagnaKlear yet, but then again, my Campbell rep is an idiot...
