CV over floor finish9/28
I am in the process of stain samples for a client and they would like me try some bona 2k craft oil they have from another project. This product can be topcoated with bona finishes, but I'm wondering if cv would work with ample drying time. I'm sure the bona topcoat is ok, but I know cv and prefer a faster drying product. This is for a dining table. Thanks
just.... No. Leave the flooring finish to the flooring gurus. Go with your gut and finish a dining table with catalyzed film forming finishes... C.V. is a fine choice and a 2K poly like sayerlack as well as others is an upgrade from there... Keep the Bona at your feet..
I would not use cv for a table. Its a great product in all regards except 1. Final film thickness. Table tops take a ton of abuse. The cv is so thin that it can get damaged. No one ever talks about repairing cv. If you are limited to 2 coats. How do you refinish it? Sand all of it off and start over.
2k poly for table tops.
In some regards the customers floor finish in the long term would fair better than your cv. 3 coats of Minwax poly looked terrible but its still hanging in there since my grandfather refinished the dining room table in 1980. Table tops need durability first. ease of application second.
Thanks, customer decided to go with one of my stains so floor finish is out.
good to hear..... and also for a heads up C.V. for a table top is not a bad choice. I happen to apply coatings of all types for a facility that generates 40-60 million in finished custom woodwork a year. I'm not coating tater boxes over here. I have a table I built for my home out of 2" thick solid walnut that is sealed with one coat T67F7 vinyl sealer and two coats of V84F90037 "Former Becker Acroma C.V. now Sherwin".. the C.V. was reduced 50% to reduce coating thickness! I don't like coatings to look like they were produced to go in a double wide trailer and coated in plastic. I have four young boys that eat three prepared meals a day at that table as well as being home schooled everyday. The table sees extreme abuse... guess what? The finish is tremendous and holds up to the dents and dings.... Edges show zero wear... The table is wiped down after every meal with a damp rag of 1:1 Vinegar/Peroxide..
