INFORMATION

Whitson’s Universal Lacquer has been specifically developed for the protection of metal leaf and precious metal, however due to excellent film properties it can be used in a wide range of applications making it truly multi-functional. The product dries to form a hard yet flexible film with good adhesion, resulting in a finish with excellent wear characteristics. The cured film exhibits excellent barrier properties to moisture and atmospheric gasses.

Preparation
When using this lacquer the surface must be thoroughly cleaned and degreased. Failure to clean the surface can lead to cissing and the lacquer not adhering. This step is essential when applying the lacquer over metal leaf.

For cleaning we recommend using a clean and non-abrasive cloth dampened with a neutral cleaning agent.

Application
Always ensure the Lacquer is well-stirred before application. Stir, rather than shake lacquer, to avoid introducing air and bubbles into the lacquer. Ensure all your tools and containers are as clean as possible. Any contamination while applying the lacquer can cause discolouration or a substandard finish!

When applying the Universal Lacquer on leaf we recommend laying the first layer very thinly (60 – 80 micrometre wet film thickness.) Over-application may result in discolouration of the finish.

For best protection it is highly recommended to apply two coats of the Lacquer, following the overcoat times in the TDS.
