Quick Overview

Behlen Guitar & Stringed Instrument Lacquer - Clear Gloss

Details

Stringed Instrument Lacquer is a high quality nitrocellulose lacquer specifically designed for wooden stringed instruments.

Stringed Instrument Lacquer allows for the special expansion and contraction that can occur due to the unique construction of stringed instruments.

Stringed Instrument Lacquer is best applied over Behlen Vinyl Sealer in order to assure its unique film building and special finish characteristics.

1 Quart (946ml) gloss finish.

Use with Flattener if reducing sheen to a satin or matte finish is desired.

 

Typical Application:


  1. 1. Surface should be properly sanded and clear of oil, dirt and dust.
  2. 2. Apply ONE COAT of Behlen Vinyl Sealer.
  3. 3. Allow to dry one hour and scuff sand to 320 or 360 grit smoothness.
  4. 4. Apply a wet uniform coat of Stringed Instrument Lacquer at ready to use strength ie undiluted.
  5. 5. Allow at least one hour dry time. Scuff sand to 360 grit. Clean surface of dust.
  6. 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 building up to five coats of finish.
  7. 7. Allow to air dry 24 to 48 hours.
  8. 8. Wet sand with 400 wet/dry paper and Mineral Spirits.
  9. 9. Allow to dry at least an hour.
  10. 10. Apply final coat at 1:1 ratio with Lacquer Thinner eg Behlen Qualalacq Lacquer Reducer. (this allows for greater flowing and levelling).
  11. 11. Allow to air dry 48 to 72 hours prior to final rubbing.

 

Special Note: (For an even better Result, when polishing out to a high sheen, the finish should cure for at least 21 days prior to any polishing operations.)
