Topic tags/keywords: question

Where would one find a brushable white lacquer? Most of the sources I’d normally consult appear to be dead ends
and I have a customer that wants cabinets refinished, the doors and drawers I will spray with white lacquer, but ummm I can’t spray inside their house so… I need a brushable lacquer….

Sherwin Williams White lacquer under coater comes in Gallons and fives, when dry it can be sanded, and topcoated with finish of choice.

There were loopholes in some states – spray booths are
required in the shop but nitro can be sprayed in-situ
without. Some cabinetmakers were spraying cabinets
after installation for this reason. I do not know if these
loopholes are still around.

it’s more the fumes I’m worried about in the customer’s house, If I can tint a clear brushable white then I should have no problems. Problem will be finding someone who knows how to do this.

Unfortunately it’s the bathroom cabinets, where the only vent would not be convienant… though there is a large plate glass window above the bath tub that does not open…. Yeah I will never get that architectural design idea… ever….

An acceptable compromise might be to brush on a base coat of flat latex/acrylic, and top with clear waterborne poly floor finish. I did that on my library wall project, and it turned out very well.

Try using a small short pile or foam roller. Would a clear water based acrylic gloss varnish do it?
