Customer Questions & Answers

Does it have a strong odor like lacquer?

Asked by: dee
Yes, best practice when spraying is to use a quality mask with organic cartridges. Paper masks offer little to no protection.

This product is described as an interior clear wood finish lacquer, however, I notice in the additional information it also says it prevents tarnishing on brass and other metals. Can this product be used on metal, particularly brass, and how is its durability?
Asked by: Jerry
Yes, this will work nicely on metals such as brass to inhibit tarnishing. Has also been used for decades to provide moisture resistance to things like electronic circuit boards.

Can this be used on floors

Asked by: Mary
On the back of the can it reads in bold letters at the top "NOT RECOMMENDED FOR WOOD FLOORS OR EXTIEROR USE" so you could but when the manufacturer tells you that, you're not going to get quality results if you do use it on flooring. I believe foot traffic will be too much for it. I suggest an oil based product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from real nitro; works just fine as it should I'm refinishing a piano, of all things. For the body, I'm using a spray gun and buying lacquer by the gallon. But for other things, this is perfect. Harder to reach nooks and crannies. Small parts-- like the dampers. Repairs. It sticks to brass and steel OK, too. The gloss is a nitrocellulose, too-- time tested and classic, and importantly, the original chemistry used on millions of pianos and guitars since the 1930s! So good for many instrument repairs (but always check first). The semi-gloss and satin do NOT say that they're nitro lacquers, so be careful. That's why I'm buying the gloss. If I want satin, a bit of rouge and a rag will do nicely to turn gloss to satin. Not all lacquers are the same chemistry at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Product The aerosol can version of this product is good once you get the hang of it. I'm using it for electric guitar finishes. I am finding the brushing version of this nitro is great too, goes on thick. That's my only complaint about the aerosol, it goes on pretty thin. The spray nozzle is good, keep the can as upright as possible and it will spray on a fine consistent mist. Keep the coats light and they dry in ~10 minutes so you can put 15 coats on in a few hours. You'll need a polishing/buffing routine of some kind as well to get the super glossy finish. I use micro mesh from 1500 grit to 12,000 grit. Key instructions to follow about cleaning the nozzle after every application by turning the can upside down and spraying until clear. If you don't do this you'll get the blobs. Shake the spray can real well, don't shake the brushing version at all, just stirred. Otherwise it goes on pretty well, it's hard not to get some orange peel here and there but it sands out easy enough. And you can really use all of the can, it doesn't run out of air before lacquer. There are pros and cons for both the spray and brushing version so I would try both and see what works best for your project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Easy to Use I purchased this can of Lacquer by Deft and one from Rust-oleum. Both have a very nice smooth finish. Deft to me is easier to work with. The spray is wider than the Rust-oleum which covers a wider area which I'm use too with spray cans. You can apply several coats with about a 30 minute wait between them which worked out fine for me to go do other things and then come back and apply another coat. There was no running at anytime. No clogging of the nozzle, but then I followed the directions and cleaned it after every use. Great product and glad I used it for this project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 'Go-To' coat of choice I've used this for various projects ranging from fine wood turnings to scroll saw fretwork. Applies even, smooth and requires little or no sanding between coats. Spray on application gives me a desired finish in as little as 2-3 coats. I'm done searching for a better finish ... I've found Deft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best DIY Lacquer I've used Deft lacquer for almost 50 years and have not found a better lacquer for the DIY shop. I have finishes in my home that are 45 years old and look as good as the day they were finished. I've used the brush on and the aerosol spray. Both with superb results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Finish for HardWood! I learned about this product back in 1977 when I was in 7th grade wood shop. We use to brush it on and sand with 400 between coats. Since then I have tried other products that cost less but they did not give me the same results. Varthane for instance is a bit less costly but it takes several days to dry and smells like Varnish since it has Varnish in it. Deft is Laquer based so it dries to the touch in about 5 minutes and can be sanded between coats in about 30 minutes making me able to finish a product the same day. They came out with the Spray cans back in the 80's and Wow! does that make it easy to get a perfect finish. I usually spray 3 coats of the Satin or Semi Gloss and sand with 400 between coats. The final coat I don't sand, just take some 0000 steel wool and some liquid bees wax and I have a professional finished product. Laquer finishes are great for indoor wood products, for outside I usually use Duraseal polyurethane or a water based Deft. Water base Deft is much like a clear Latex paint, you won't get the same shine as the Laquer but it holds up to the elements well.
