hpcanHigh Performance Polyurethane – High Performance Top Coat is the hardest, most durable consumer polyurethane top coat on the market today. It brushes the best of any waterborne finish we’ve used and sprays incredibly well to a smooth finish. In addition it contains two types of UV Stabilizers, one to protect the finish from breaking down in sunlight and the other to protect underlying stains from fading or light colored woods from darkening. And with its pure polyurethane durability, it can even be used on floors. This is a great all-around product and is used over the acrylic enamels below to increase the durability. Water-clear and non-yellowing.

pre-catEnduro Pre-Cat Lacquer –  GF PRE-CAT LACQUER utilizes new technology to the polymer manufacturing process. The novel process produces a smaller and smoother polymer particle, which translates into a big increase in film clarity. In addition the Chemical & Water Resistance and Yellowing Resistance are superior to competitors, water borne or solvent.

NOTE: When using this product over solvent based sealer and stains, General Finishes recommends using their sanding sealer first.

This is a pigmented poly that’s perfect for cabinets, furniture millwork or anywhere a tough and and non-yellowing finish is required. Easy to sand with good adhesion. Available in white and black.

A typical paint finish uses 2-3 coats of primer. (Any brand of primer will work fine)  Sand the first coat with 220, the second with 320. Remove all the dust and then apply 2 coats of paint.
