Aqua Thane Topcoat is intended for clear or lightly pigmented coatings where flexibility and a high degree of hardness are required. This acrylic urethane blended topcoat has good wetting properties and exhibits excellent adhesion to wood and a variety of plastics. With excellent durability, it is designed for a professional-grade finish for interior projects.
Application methods can be foam pad, synthetic brush, sprayed, HVLP, air-assisted airless, airless. Dry times in ideal conditions 30-45 minutes (70 degrees F, 50% humidity). Aqua Coat Toners can be added to simulate the warmth and depth of the “old” shellac varnishes. To increase the physical properties of the finish and create a film that has superior water, heat, scratch and chemical resistance, crosslinker is recommend to be used.
Aqua Thane is also NMP (N-menthyl pyrrolidone) free.
I discovered "Aqua Thane NMP-Free Top Coat" early in 2021. I make high end Custom Keepsake Boxes, Keepsake Chests, Gun Cases and Display Cabinets. The are products that must last for life and then hopefully for generations to come. Aqua Thane is a beautiful and durable finish that will help accomplish this. It applies well and drys quickly to a beautiful finish. The "Low VOC" is extremely important because these boxes and cbinets remain closed most of the time and I have confidence in knowing that my work, in addition to lasting for generations,is also not harmfult to health or the environment. Thank you Aqua Coat for developing this great product! Like someone has said: "It's not finished until it's finished!"
