Recommendation for Water based pigmented Topcoat

Eli · Jan 31, 2020, 12:26 · Last edit: Jan 31, 2020, 12:52

I am deciding between two products (Mohawk waterbased post cat) and the EM6500 for the kitchen refinishing job. Which one has better flow out and levelling characteristics. I have read that the target coatings have the ability to burn in even in their water based product line. Can you please highlight the pros/cons of both these products.

For increased durability in restaurants, can we apply a clear on the mohawk or the EM6500. I was thinking of applying the EM9300 or super clear 9000 on the table tops.

Hi there,

The Mohawks Waterborne Conversion Varnish combined with the Mohawk Waterborne Conversion Varnish Catalystis an excellent finishing product for such a project. It is a superior water-based urethane in terms of quality and application.

The EM6500 is more of an acrylic that is considered ‘’soft’’ , it is not very resistant and can yellow with time.

The EM6000 is also a good product but will yellow over time.

We would recommend using the Emtech EM9300 Polycarbonate Urethane in combination with the CL100 Cross-linker or the Adrec Polyclear with the Procat Crosslinker.

Hope this helps!
