Akzo Nobel Glaze Base?6/14/18
I need this product or something similar:
Akzo Nobel glaze base, #CN 560-T018-971.
google search brings up zero on the product #
This is a clear base used for mixing with 824 tinting colorants. It was developed to use with conversion varnish systems so as to give the finisher some flexibility to create multi-step finish schedules. This was before the development of breakaway glazes like MLC Amazing Glaze. This Akzo Nobel glaze can be topcoated immediately. Also, there's little to no hang with this product. It is still in the Akzo Nobel system, so it ought to be available, still.
If you know of any other glaze base with these wiping/topcoating properties, I'm eager to hear about it.
Or, if you're in Phoenix, if you might stop in at that location to confirm that they're still functioning as a distributorship, even better.
I believe Azko Nobels finishing department is now just the Chemcraft product line. they probably have the same product but under a different name now
Hi and no. If there's a same or similar Chemcraft product, that I can't say because I don't see the Chemcraft product line online, except for a few items here and there from some of their distributors. However, the Akzo Nobel glaze base #CN-560-T018-971 is an existing Akzo Nobel item, not a Chemcraft item.
Akzo Nobel owns Chemcraft. Maybe there's overlap and maybe not.
This Akzo Nobel glaze base is unique, as far as I know. It can be coated over immediately.
Do Chemcraft distributors also have access to the Akzo Nobel wood coatings line? Two different animals.
I will send you a message with the name & phone number of the Chemcraft rep. that I deal with. He has always been very knowledgeable about the different products they carry. He may be familiar with what you are referring to. He is located in South Carolina but may be able to give you a contact closer to you.
I found a couple of points of info. This glaze base is/was called "Mono Series #560 Glaze Base". Also, it's an alkyd base, not linseed oil, meaning that an acid catalyst will not cause a color shift, and also that one does not need to sandwich it under a vinyl sealer barrier coat as would be needed if a linseed oil based glaze were used. Last, it has a minimum 6 hour open time before locking it in to give the finisher ample time to work it and to inspect his glaze to make sure that there's no thick accumulation which would interfere with intercoat adhesion.
Even though I shot over it immediately, the proper use of it is to wait at least 6 hours before locking it in with a finish.
Sherwin-Williams makes the following product:
Sher-Wood Kemvar Glaze
I don't know how long that this Sherwin-Williams glaze type has been in production, but it has the same working properties as the Akzo-Nobel glaze base that is the subject of this thread. Sooooo, problem solved.
Read the data sheet for this glaze. The amount of glaze that you use affects the hardness of the coating, assuming that you stay within the guidelines of not using too much accumulation of glaze. Too thick a glaze coat place4s you at risk for intercoat adhesion issues.
