Benco Sales > Finishing

Professional wood finishers choose nitrocellulose lacquers for their beautiful hand-rubbed finishing ability. It is a furniture grade product that lends itself to multi-step applications due to it’s ability to fuse into previous layers—essentially becoming one layer. This is a very forgiving formulation that sprays smoothly without sag or runs, builds fast, and dries quickly. Its flexible surface polishes to a high shine and can be colorized easily for various effects. When seeing the characteristics of the wood is important to the end product there is no better finish than “nitro” and no better source for fresh, high-quality product than Benco Sales!

 

Our precatalyzed lacquers have a hardening agent added to produce a tough finish that is more impervious to water and alcohol making it ideal for high-use products like cabinetry. It dries to a high shine which requires sanding between coats when applying multiple layers. “Precats” add warmth to wood and provide a rich finish admired by many refinishers. Best applied with high-volume, low pressure spray equipment to reduce bounce back and overspray. Fast drying reduces the chance of bugs and air-borne debris settling into finish.

 

Benco Sales finishes are formulated with the highest quality solvents, surfactants and additives and have been the finish of choice for professional furniture restorers and industrial furniture manufacturers for decades. Each product formulation is developed for specific applications and deliver an optimum finish quality. Your Benco Customer Service Representative is the best source for choosing the right product for your project. Please call us today!
