AFM Safecoat Acrylacq
Safecoat Acrylacq is an excellent clear, hard and durable water-based finish for interior furniture and trims. It is an excellent replacement for high-solvent content lacquer. It is comparable to conventional lacquers in performance without the toxicity.
Superior resistance to stains, marring, and fingerprint marks.
High solids, more film build, better flow, higher luster.
Fights indoor air pollution, sealing in offgassing from the substrate.
Very low VOC content and no formaldehyde, meeting or exceeding all federal and state air quality regulations, including California.
Safely used by and for the chemically sensitive.
Use on: Unfinished (or properly prepared and sanded previously finished) wooden surfaces such as wood cabinetry and doors, paneling, furniture, and wood railings, as well as some vinyl and other plastic surfaces (always test for compatibility with surface).
Coverage: One quart covers approximately 87 square feet and one gallon covers approximately 350 square feet, in one coat depending on method of application and surface porosity. Three coats are typically recommended; two coats typically the minimum.
Apply liberal coats, keeping a good wet edge and avoid overbrushing.
In most cases, a minimum of 3 coats is required, depending on the surface. When spraying, use a .015 tip or smaller. Apply thin even coats when spraying rather than heavy coats which will tend to sag. If spray pattern begins to dryspray, reduce air pressure and increase material flow to surface. Use aluminum oxide or silicon carbide sandpaper to sand between coats. Use a damp, dust free rag after sanding to remove dust particles. For best results, this product should not be reduced.
Use only during low or moderate humidity conditions. Applying product over lightly dampened surfaces can assist in controlling the dry time and obtaining smoother finishes. Acrylacq can be buffed or rubbed out after 1-2 days of cure (although for best results allow to cure up to 7 days). Take care to avoid generating excessive heat when buffing.
