Add Lacquer Retarder to nitrocellulose lacquer before spraying in humid conditions, to prevent "blushing" (whitening) in the finish due to trapped moisture.

Behlen Lacquer Retarder

I have been finishing acoustic and electric guitars with nitrocellulose lacquer for many years. I recently did an electric kit using clear nitrocellulose lacquer tinted with Stew-Mac #5050 Vintage Amber Translucent Stain. During the last few passes I used Behlen Lacquer Retarder. It slows down the drying process and maximizes gloss. I also use it to promote blending when doing repairs. It's a great product! Thanks!

Behlen Lacquer Retarder

Behlen Lacquer Retarder is a great product!! It prevents "blushing" (whitening) and keeps the moisture out and sprays with a real nice flow.
