Ultra-mat (0% to 5%MAX sheen) advise!10/4
Have a customer requested to refinish this bench & a matching dining table so it becomes totally flat-mat, like no sheen at all !!
I personally like the Target Coatings flat sheen finishes, which I think are 15 sheen. They give a good looking, uniform low sheen, which you may be able to augment by using a flatting agent.
You can sometimes get Jeff Weiss, the company founder and chemist, on the phone, or if not he will answer questions sent to him via email. I would ask about what you want to do, or perhaps just try the flat sheen first and see what happens.
Part of the problem in rubbing out a rough surface like that is the lack of sheen consistency. You can try the flat sheen finish, which will give a uniform sheen, and may be all you need. If not, perhaps Jeff Weiss can advise you as to the saturation point of flatting agent in a finish.
Hope this helps.
Try modern masters dead flat varnish. It is a waterborne. Most mattes we have tried are more like and eggshell paint sheen. This is flatter than that. It has been a long time since I used it, so I don’t recall exact sheen.
Milesi makes HGA 19, which is a natural effect dead flat waterbased poly. I use the solvent version which is great. I think Renner makes a flat sheen wb as well but i've never sprayed it.
thks Craig, Melesi is much in the range of what I also use ( ilva, from IVM too).
And for the Target of this world, no offence and with ONLY great respect, but, it's just not for me ....anymore !
You can buy WB flatters from Hood Finishing, and adjust the sheen of an WB product you have. I've used it several times and it's always worked well. It does tend to drop out of suspension in a few hours so frequent stirring is a must.
Milesi natural effect is going to get you what you need there
Sivam Wood Effect works great.
It's a 2k poly true 0 sheen, 3 coats and you cant tell it was ever finished.
Sherwin Williams made me a 5 sheen in both Kem Aqua Plus and Sayerlack
Thks you all for this info, will defiantly help !

Tyler…..here’s a funny (or say pitiful ) anecdote !
After reading your reply on Monday and aware Richelieu carries SIVAM, I took the chance on calling the “so call finishing rep” and ask if he could tell me more about this SIVAM special Wood Effect (not knowing we’re taking about the LFE607?...then) !
Well, turns out he had no clue on what I was talking about !!
Part why I tend to stick to a finishing company ( say like Milesi from IVM) VS a…..well, jack of all trade and master of none being just a huge box offering too many bands…..to share holders loll
Thanks and….enjoy a good laugh too !
That's a shame, as it's a great product, I have been fortunate to have a great finish rep through richelieu, but I guess I am of the few not many!
have you guys tried ilva's velvet diamond? sounds very similar to this sivam product.
we ran into problems with the velvet not wanting to dry properly with air temps below 68*. it also could show up white if the end grain wasn't thoroughly sealed. i wander if the sivam performs similarly.
TYLER.....ya, your "say" lucky !
Thanks again ;0)
Here is a snapshot of Richelieu's website with the product numbers.
Much appreciate this TYLER....
As you can see, it's MIA around here !?!
But, with your screen shot, I can now have a valid argument it is in there system, just maybe not in Canada ??!
Thank you much for your assistance, I'll post the outcome later.
