General Finishes Water Based Sanding Sealer:
MSDS says it contains the following:
Ammonia salts of modified styrene-acrylic polymers
So none of those say “zinc stearate” but I’m not a chemistry major so I dont know if they equate to it or not.
I’d like to know because I am finishing items that can be used as cups, vases, etc and will be subject to heat, water, oil, acidic spills etc. I have read that zinc stearate should not be part of the finishing regime if all of these things are going to be in the target environment.
GF also indicates that this “sanding” sealer will make the final finish that much more resilient…....so it must not be just a normal sanding sealer?
