General Finishes Enduro Conversion Varnish (Water-based 2K Polyurethane) – This new finish from General is the toughest finish system in the line-up. 2K polys have been around for quite a while in solvent versions, but this product is water-based. Clear, non-yellowing and the ultimate in durability (think car clear coats)… this is the go-to product for restaurant tables, cabinets, vanities, bathroom fixtures and architectural applications. Each gallon comes with a 12 oz catalyst which must be used in each coat for ultimate durability. About 6-8 pot life once catalyzed, so catalyze only what you will use. Catalyst jar has marking for amount.
