Teak dining table refinishing8/25
I would like to put Melsi 2k poly on.
In instances where a customer wants a different top coat, (like CV OR 2k, I have heard for putting stronger finishes over weaker, to use Isolante (ML) then Polarian. No Polarian sealer in addition to the Isolante
What are u guys using on Teak? From my understanding, there is an Isolante by Melesi, but only comes in a big container.
Would their Isolante hold back the oils in Teak? I was planning on wiping it all down with acetone just before I spray
the Chemcraft isolante is sold in quarts and gallons...if you can find it.
Thx sir. Iím looking to ensure the Isolante from Milesi will work for putting a 2K over the Teak
Ilva sells their products in gallons and from my understanding, they too have an Isolante, but itís the old saying, ďif it isnít broken, donít fix itĒ.... iím more than satisfied with Milesiís products, I just want to ensure Iím using the right (process/products)
Talk to the product tech rep and see what they say.
I am not familiar with the Milesi product but the Chemcraft acts as both the tie-coat and sealer which your apply the topcoat(s) to...or in other words no need for another sealer coat.
The rule of thumb is to NOT put a harder finish over a softer finish. Are you stripping it to bare wood or just refinishing? Wiping with acetone is common just before sealing is very common though I didn't feel the need with the dewaxed shellac.
Boat guys use West Epoxy system then top coat with Marine varnish all the time. I'm currently doing a teak/veneer bathroom using Zinnser sealcoat to seal the teak and topcoating with GF WB poly with a flat sheen. Looks awesome.
Milesi is the best product for this. First wipe the teak down with acetone, then a clean rag and a little bit more acetone, then apply the isolante sealer, and yes you can put a 2k poly over the isolante. wiping down with acetone you will see all the teak oil on the rag, this will help with the clarity and feel of the finished product over time
Youíre absolutely correct. Thar is exactly what I did. The only mistake I initially made, was I put on a full wet coat of Isolante and it separated on me. I had to block sand it back with 220, then 320, then a mist coat again of Isolante and bingo bango it worked
Mike.. With the isolante I like to apply a very thin coat and then aporox one hour later come back and spray another coat without sanding. Then come back the next day and sand and top coat
