Directions for use

Preparation:

  • 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 EM6500.
  • 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
  • For applications on MDF or maple, there may be a migration of minerals or other components present in the MDF and create yellowing in the finish. Target Coating recommends applying two coats of BIN Primer-Sealer Stain Killer before applying EM6500.

Application:

  • Apply the lacquer using an HVLP spray gun, nylon-polyester brush or 10 mm paint roller. 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 for large surfaces or 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.
  • Instructions for tinting: 2 - 2.5 fl. oz. of colorant per gallon.
Use only in well ventilated areas. Avoid inhaling spray mist. Wear a NIOSH/MSHA approved respirator during spray applications.

Cures fast!

Jeremy Fruit · Jan 28, 2019

Ardec's customer service is tremendous!! I will be ordering everything from them in the future! I had my pigmented lacquer tinted to "Oxford White" from the Benjamin Moore collection and the results were stunning. Overall, EM6500 is very thick so be mindful that you will have to use bigger spray tips. It flows well but what's best is the super quick drying and hardening times. I was clamping pieces that I had sprayed the previous day for assembly and it was rock solid! If you desire a super smooth buttery finish but want it colored I would first apply this or a colored primer than use one emtech's topcoat lacquers. You won't be disappointed!

Paint to Lacquer

Andrew Cameron · Aug 27, 2018

I absolutely love this product. Compared to paint it is so easy to use. There is no need to water it down and it drys so much quicker and I can complete a project in a single day if required. The end result is fantastic, providing a smooth glossy finish.

Water-Based HVLP Solid Colour Finish

Nick Redden · Oct 9, 2017

What a fantastic product! I am new to HVLP spray finishing and needed a "painted" finish for a recent cabinet project. After a failed attempt at spraying conventional paint, I ordered a gallon of EM6500 tinted to my Benjamin Moore colour and the results were flawless. I am excited to work with more products from Emtech on future projects. This product turned a frustrating job into an enjoyable job!
