CV / 2K poly over lacquer wrinkling12/17
Need advice, yearlong job. Our company is being asked to apply a harder finish over lacquer on used furniture.
CV is wrinkling, never have used 2K poly. Not having a problem with fisheye.
Have not tried 2K, we can't strip to raw wood. We well know these are not ideal situations. Anyone have a successful path?
Could you explain step No. 5, 'mist of 3 light coats'.....can't say I have every done this technique?
Also, step No. 7 is troubling as well....heavy coat means what in mil thickness?
Jim, putting a harder coating over a softer one is asking for more trouble. I'm not so sure I understand your question or your solution. If the initial coating of Lacquer is chipping/wrinkling, applying a Vinyl Sealer over it wont guarantee that what you put on top of the Vinyl,will stay put.
Hmmmmm, I got a chuckle from your comment that " we cant strip to raw wood "
I'm reminded of a comment that a Government Contractor once mentioned. It was... " why is there never enough time to do the job right, but plenty of time to do it over ".
Ah I love it when a customer wants this. I think what you want is a more durable finish rather than a harder finish. Glad you have no fisheye issues, thats a plus.
I will check it out.
And yes millage can be a problem. We sand the origional coat hard to cut it
you are wrinkling your "Dusted" coats of C.V. Back in the day you could get away with dusting to build up nitro lacquer..... it only works there.... you absolutely cannot do this technique with a mechanical bond type coating that does not 're-wet" itself...
