February 2016 Meeting

Meeting will review 7) common wood topcoats including shellac, oils, varnish, lacquer, and more. The discussion will study how formulations have evolved to high solids from the previous, easier to use, low solids formulas. The discussion will include EPA/ State driven regulations that resulted in chemical formula changes. You will increase your understanding of how you can improve performance. And, you will learn how to mix your own varnish.
