Clear Wood Lacquer comes in many different product types. It can be a great alternative to paint depending on the finish you want for your home. Wood comes in solid and veneer forms, and in many grain types and colours. Once you have selected the ideal wood for your home or commercial space, you want to preserve its natural properties. With a clear wood lacquer, this will help show off the wood grains as well as adding a protective layer onto the surface. Clear wood lacquer is perfect for high traffic areas such as kitchen cabinets and surfaces.
Products that can be ordered vary from basic single pack lacquers and non yellowing Polyurethanes. The range goes all the way through to High Gloss Polyesters.
Whatever you choose, the lacquer will provide an additional surface layer to the wood. This protects it whilst also enhancing its natural colour and grain. If your looking to restore old wooden furniture that’s been neglected, we also offer a comprehensive selection of furniture lacquers to transform wood back to its natural glory. They help to not only give your furniture an excellent finish, but also protect it for years to come.
A good wood lacquer provides an additional layer and seal to the surface of the wood. This clear lacquer coating adds to the woods natural strength and durability. Making it easier to maintain and retain in pristine condition, keeping them looking brand new. The wood lacquer also provides excellent scratch and heat resistance – this is why clear wood lacquer is commonly used in kitchens. This helps to reduce the need for costly repairs after several years of use. Without a clear wood lacquer, wood can easily be damaged to spillages, burns or scratches.
The added strength and protection provided by a clear wood lacquer makes it ideal for use in areas that will be exposed to greater wear and tear. These could include wooden flooring, kitchen work surfaces and solid wood dining tables in the home, or bar tops, door frames and skirtings and boardroom tables in the workplace.
Clear Wood Lacquers are usually applied using industrial spray guns and pumps, instead of a brush. This gives an even and consistent finish across the surface of the wood or MDF once it is dry. Here at Finework we can guarantee a consistent finish whether we are using a spray lacquer or spray paints, all projects are completed to the highest standard and ensured to satisfy the customer.
Whilst clear wood lacquers show off the natural features and properties of the wood, they do give it a reflective quality. Depending on the lacquer used and the number of coats applied, this ranges from anything from a subtle sheen, through to a high gloss mirror finish. This gives you more choice in how you want your overall surface to look.
As wood is a classic and durable feature of any home or office space, it can last for many decades. We have undertaken work on many projects where a finish that was applied many years ago has made the interior look dated. If the colour of the wood, or gloss finish has gone out of favour, the surface layer can be sanded off and a wood lacquer can be applied to the wood to give a more contemporary appearance.
Both varnish and lacquers provide shiny and glossy finishes to furniture and surfaces. A varnish is usually just transparent , where as a clear wood lacquer is available in many different levels of sheen. These levels range from high gloss to ultra matte, giving you more freedom of choice and allowing you to decide your preferred finish. A clear wood lacquer is also much more durable than a varnish, coming in more harder finishes. Due to a lacquers evaporating solvents, they also dry much quicker than varnishes.
