    Q:Would this be suitable for a wood countertop? Will it protect the wood from frequently wet conditions? Heat?

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Happy to clear things up, Ben! While Rust-Oleum Watco Lacquer Wood Finish can be used on interior wood surfaces, we do not recommend it for use on countertops. It is not a food-grade coating, and it is not designed for the typical use of countertops. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Q:What tip will you need to spray this?
      by|Jan 24, 2023
      4 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  We thin and spray in the HVLP capspray with a 1.8mm tip. Not sure why Rust-Oleum Support said it can't be sprayed, that's all we ever do is 100% of the time spray our lacquers, whether we us a clear or a tintable lacquer. Use multiple light coats.

      by|Mar 31, 2023

        A:  I spray it many times every few days through an HVLP gun. Spraying may take longer with clean-up of the gun, but you get a superior finish. Something you appreciate when spraying gloss.

        by|Jan 25, 2024

          A:  Happy to help. Watco Lacquer Wood Finish can be applied using either a good quality bristle brush or applicator, it cannot be applied using spray equipment. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

          by|Jan 24, 2023

            A:  I use a .8 mm tip in my HVLP. It works well for spraying light build-up coats. You really need to apply it heavy on your last coat with this tip.

              Q:Could I use this on top of wallpaper/on paper-covered wood?
              by|Jan 16, 2022
              1 Answer
              Answer This Question

              A:  We appreciate your interest, Mackie. Rust-Oleum Watco Lacquer Wood Finish is intended for use on bare, painted, stained, or previously finished wood surfaces. We recommend applying in a test area first if using over paper to ensure compatibility with it and the adhesive. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

                Used this product to finish the top and side of my 4x8 Carpenters Table with triple flips (Se photos). It produced a smooth high gloss finish with no bubbling or brush marks.

                Very GOOD Product!
                I have tried different Lacquers but they just would not work out for me! Slow drying and easy to run while spraying. This is a brushing Lacquer but I do both brush then sand and then spray it. It sets up hard like I want it. Nice gloss finish! It's what I've been needing to do instrument work for years! I highly recommend it! I started with a quart to see how it did for me and then I bought 2 Gallons! Price is great too!

                works great.
                This product is great for production work. I can apply the product in the morning and in a couple of hours either recoat or wrap the item up and ship it out.

                  Watco Clear Semi-Gloss Lacquer Wood Finish
                  I have used Watco lacquer for many years now and think it is one of the best.

                  Good quality lacquer, especially at this price. I used it to finish several hundred sf of wainscoting, base board and trim. It sprayed very nicely and I got much more milage than expected.

                  The best lacquer I've ever used. Spray or brush it comes out beautiful. Smooth with no brush strokes if you just don't over brush it and don't apply to thick. Three thin coats not one thick coat. No need to sand between coats however I like to use a 400 grit spong sander just to say I did and it helps to remove any dust that may have been in the finish. Have been using watco for many years. Arrived in good condition especially since being delayed 10 days in shipping due to snow storm.

                  The fumes are very strong.Have to be used outside and up wind . i hoped to use this in a sprayer but it was to thick. If you mix it with another type oil base paint clear it turns to gel. also mineral sprits gels also with this. Liquar thinner is the only way to clean up. I ended up using a paint roller to put it on 200 sq foot of wood trim i made. That worked well. Dries fast in less than 30. Also this paint melts into the previous coat so the first coat on pine wood left some white places where it reacted to the pine sap but on the second coat it melts into the previous coat and the white place went away . it looks good i hope it will last as good as a water based product.
