Enduro Conversion Varnish (Water-based 2K Polyurethane)
- This brand new finish from General is the
toughest finish system in the line-up. 2K polys have been around for quite a
while in solvent versions but this product is water-based. Clear,
non-yellowing and the ultimate in durability (think car clear coats) this is
the go-to product for restaurant tables, cabinets, vanities, bathroom
fixtures and architectural applications.
Each gallon comes with a 12 oz
catalyst which must be used in each coat for ultimate durability. About 6-8

has marking for amount.

Old furniture, whether a
treasured heirloom or consignment shop find, is often better made than
anything that can be bought today. So, why let damaged finishes detract from
a beautiful piece when you can repair or refinish it in a way that preserves
the piece and makes it look as good as new? Author Jeff Jewitt, a

All stainless-steel cup construction is traditionally expensive, but we've solved that problem
with our all-new 1 qt Homestead exclusive! Upgrade your current cup whether
it's an old style suction feed or pressure feed. This is the cup to use with
water based finishes! Can replace any cup with a traditional 3/8" NPS fluid
fitting. Features an EPDM* solvent proof gasket and cam lock closure.
Now you don't have to
worry about leaving water based finishes in the cup - whether it's all day
or all week. Traditional aluminum cups not only can react with some
water based finishes, but they also are hard to clean. Water based finishes
are much easier to clean from stainless steel, particularly latexes and the
pigmented lacquers and polyurethanes.
* EPDM - ethylene propylene
diene monomer, a synthetic rubber gasket that is more solvent proof and
softer than typical hard Teflon gaskets used in 1 qt cups.

application, dry time and coverage.
Water Based Lacquer -
Enduro Clear Acrylic
is a newer generation acrylic with better
chemical resistance and hardness than the old Clear Acrylic. Perfect product
for general finishing and rubs out to a beautiful sheen. Excellent product
for guitars and musical instruments! Easy to sand with
