product line represents an intermediate step between our high quality
water white lacquers and our extremely durable conversion varnish series.
The blending of these two technologies creates a product that demonstrates
the ease of application normally associated with lacquer, coupled with
performance characteristics resembling the conversion varnishes. This
product is a single pack system and requires no additional catalyzation.
It is supplied to the customer at application viscosity thereby eliminating
the need for the incorporation of additional thinners prior to application.
This product meets all of the pertinent government regulations regarding
emissions and meets or exceeds the performance parameters outlined by
the National Kitchen Cabinet Association and the American Society for
Testing and Materials.
Preparation & Application
Preparation: This product is prepared at application viscosity
and should require no thinning prior to use. However, if the conditions
at your facility dictate that a thinner be incorporated, we recommend
the use of our SOL-9011 HAPs Free Thinner at levels not to exceed 10%
by volume. If conditions dictate that a retarder be added, we recommend
our SOL-9012, HAPs Free Industrial Retarder be used at a level not to
exceed 5% by volume.
NOTE: Effective dry times will be lengthened if retarder is added.
For optimum performance of this Precatalyzed lacquer, we recommend that
it be applied as a self-sealing system. When applied as a self-sealing
system, we recommend that the total coating system not exceed three coats,
with a final dry film thickness no greater than 3 mils. If a faster drying
sanding sealer is required, we recommend the use of our Gem Seal Conversion
Sealer, 210-0008, which should be applied at one coat with a maximum dry
film thickness of 1 mil. The sealer coat should be followed by a maximum
of two coats of HAPs Compliant Gem Coat Precatalyzed Lacquer to produce
a final coating system with a maximum dry film thickness of 3 mils.
Use #500 Gem Coat Lacquer Thinner or SOL-9011 HAPs Free Lacquer Thinner
to clean all equipment. Dispose of in accordance with Federal, State,
and Local regulation regarding pollution.

* Clear non-yellowing coatings are formulated with resin systems and U.V.
inhibitors designed to resist yellowing. The coating will not protect
wood, lightly stained wood substrates or pigmented basecoats from yellowing.
