Lacquer supplier in CT12/7
I have been getting lacquer from NC and use to get Chemcraft from Welco but they are no longer around. I need a local supplier and in particular a supplier of tinted nitro lac. Any recommendations?
I use camger coatings in Norfolk Ma.
SW pro dist in Wethersfield. If you dont have a spray booth they are not going to sell to you. Clark paint in Springfield carries mlc campbell and is full service.
So do they come and inspect a persons shop?
Yup. The guy said it was a clean air thing. I don't see what diff it makes where the air exhausts but that's what they said. It's too bad because I prefer SW over MLC
Good for SW.... they have to report what they sell and to who they sellto for their VOC content report. I get a monthly report because we are a fairly large shop. We go through several hundred gallons of various types of coatings, reducers & catalyst a month.From waterborne to polyester.
Proving you have a Spray Booth has been around in some States for quite awhile. Also, having a permit to operate it, and proof that the location of said Spray Booth is zoned for commercial use is also required.
In the case of SW, the shop I worked at years ago had been a customer of SW for quite some time. One day the driver who was delivering the materials, asked us for a copy of all the permits and photos of the Booth. He had to do this for all the Shops he was making deliveries to.
Its the City/State looking to shut down garage type operations. Its also SW way of covering their hind end in case the building suddenly went boom.
First, Plex nitrocellulose lacquer from Camger Coatings is far superior to both Sherwin-Williams nitrocellulose lacquer and ML Campbell nitrocellulose lacquer.
How so? It's harder, i.e., in the Pensky pencil hardness test it outperforms both pf those other, softer lacquers.
Second, tech support from Camger is first rate. That's not to minimize tech support from the Wethersfield Sherwin-Williams place, though they couldn't answer simple SW wood pore filler questions from me, and neither could anyone from ML Campbell.
I can't say enough good things about Plex lacquer or Camger Coatings.
Aa for SW and that thing with a spray booth, what if you're finishing onsite? Forget them for lacquer if that's the way that they ooerate. Me, personally, they've never asked or queried me. I don't think it's any of their business and I wouldn't tell them just to be snide about it. Just use them for the Sherwood stains and their solvents.
