Directions for use


  • Fine sand surface to be finished with the appropriate grade sandpaper based on the type of final finish required.

  • For application to ferrous metals it is necessary to apply an anti-rust primer such as
    Tremclad Water Based Rust Primer prior to application of EM6000.

  • If the surface to be finished has a grain-filling type glaze, sealer or paste; ensure that the systems are compatible with one another by preparing a test panel before proceeding.

  • Certain solvent-based fillers and glazes may prevent proper adhesion of the topcoat if not thoroughly cured. Ensure that grain fillers have been sanded with a minimum of 400-grit sandpaper and all contamination is removed. Oil-Based glazes should be air-dried and tested to ensure proper early adhesion of the water-based topcoat.

  • All surfaces to be finished must be clean and free of oil, dust and contamination that may cause fisheyes or poor adhesion. Clean surface with denatured alcohol or fresh water. Allow surface to thoroughly dry before proceeding.

  • Mix the product thoroughly.

  • Can be fortified with 2 to 5% of CL100 Cross-Linker


  • Apply the lacquer using an HVLP spray gun. The product can be used without being diluted with water or with the SA5 Retarder. However, the use of SA5 can be useful to slow down the drying time of the lacquer when applying in warm temperature.

  • Apply a first coat and let dry 20 minutes. Apply a second coat and let dry for 20 minutes. Repeat the operation until you obtain the desired finish.

  • If more than 24 hours have passed between two applications, lightly sand the surface using a fine sanding paper.

Use only in well ventilated areas. Avoid inhaling spray mist. Wear a NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator during spray applications.

EM6000 Production Acrylic Lacquer

Jasen Gordon · Aug 30, 2023

This is the first time trying water-based lacquer and I am really impressed with the results I obtained with it. It goes on nicely and self-levels well. I used an HVLP spray gun to apply it. A week later did a buff and polish and obtained a high gloss finish. This will become my go-to lacquer.

Takes a great shine

Brian Dean · Apr 6, 2023

I find this stuff really easy to apply with my gun, easy of course to clean up. It can take a while to fully cure in the sense that wet sanding can expand the material a bit, which means that it can contract slightly after sanding. But if you're fast and allow it to dry between sandings it's great. I've been applying over the base coat over shellac and had great definition and clarity to the wood grain.

Perfect Laquer

Tyler Rochford · Feb 22, 2021

This is our go-to laquer. So far, we have used it on wood, on plastic, over paint, over oil stains... Once cured, it is extremely resistant and looks subtle, just like we want.


Norm Strickland · Apr 22, 2020

I've been using this product for about 4 years on kitchen cabinets i'm building, great stuff.

Great stuff

Peter Owen Goodale · Jan 30, 2015

Love working with this for my guitar/bass refinishes as well as finishes for my custom jewellery. Easy to work with and great results. Plus Artdec.ca customer service is some of the best I have had. Will be returning for more product with them.
