Modern nonflammable alternative to traditional nitrocellulose lacquer. Equipment cleans up with soap and water.
Our ColorTone® Waterbase Lacquer has exceptional clarity and rivals nitrocellulose in appearance, with less shrinkage and no yellowing. 100% burn-in between coats means wet-sanding without "witness lines," and invisible touch-ups, too. You can tint the finish or the sealer with ColorTone Liquid Stains before spraying.
