Enduro Lacquer

Enduro Water Base Lacquer is an economical, high performing clear finish that provides superior clarity and hardness. Designed for interior use on furniture, cabinets, & millwork, it exhibits excellent water and chemical resistance. Enduro Water Base Lacquer dries rapidly and displays excellent early block resistance. It has illustrated superior performance to solvent based lacquers, providing improved stack times, hardness, lacquer thinner resistance, and fingernail polish remover resistance.

Enduro Water Base Lacquer is VOC-compliant, low odor, non-flammable, and will clean-up with soap and water. It is self sealing, however General Finishes Enduro Sanding Sealer is recommended to provide the optimum quality finish.

Enduro Crosslinker can be added for additional chemical & water resistance.

Sheens: Flat (10), Satin (35), Semi-Gloss (50) and Gloss (90).
Recommended HVLP atomizing sets: .043 -.051 tip and nozzle, No. 9 -10 air cap. See our Guide for Spray Tip Sizes.

VAR Top Coat

Enduro-Var is a self crosslinking polyurethane that looks more like an oil varnish than a water coating. It ambers slightly, is our most durable coating, is highly water resistance, and is both sprayable and brushable. It is our top of the line coating and should be used when you need the very best. Suitable for cabinets and millwork.

Enduro-Var ADHERES WELL only over WATER STAINS, DYE STAINS, and RAW WOOD. It will adhere over an oil stain ONLY IF the stain is completely dry (minimum 4 days drying). Use Enduro-Var over any other surfaces at your own risk.

Available in Flat, Satin, Semi-Gloss and Gloss sheens.

See Enduro Var Urethane Varnish Technical Data PDF.
