Q:Is this safe to use on food preparation surfaces such as a kitchen island ?
by|Jun 18, 2023
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Happy to clear things up, Joby! While Rust-Oleum Watco Lacquer Wood Finish can be used on interior wood surfaces, it is not considered to be a food-grade coating, and we do not recommend it for use on surfaces that will have direct contact with food or beverage. The only product that we have that we can recommend for food prep areas is Rust-Oleum Watco Butcher Block Oil. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Watco-1-Pint-Butcher-Block-Oil-in-Clear-241758/316130833 - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

    Q:Can you use a spray gun with this product

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Thank you for reaching out, Bill! To ensure proper coverage and a smooth finish, you will need to apply Rust-Oleum Watco Lacquer Wood Finish with a good quality bristle brush or applicator. We do not recommend spraying this product due to how quickly it dies and that it should not be thinned. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Q:Lacquers have a reputation of yellowing over time due to nitrocellulose being in it. Does the product have nitrocellulose in it? I?m trying to assess the risk of this yellowing over time.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for reaching out, Riley! Our Watco Crystal Clear Lacquer is a nitrocellulose lacquer, though it should not yellow when used for indoor applications. UV will cause this lacquer to yellow over time if exposed. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 2

          I actually had 2 quarts and the first canwhen using it it seemed to be too white and I thought it would clear up when it dried. When I put the brush in a pan to clean the whole brush turned white and was pretty hard to get off. So I thought it was a fluke so since I was on a dead line after resanding everything down again I got the other can and got about 1/2 way done I could tell it was doing the same thing. I was late with the order after having to resend everything down again. Lost $30. This was the worst stuff I ever seen. Now I have 2 quarts of worthless stuff. The brush is ng now I cleaned it the best I could but the bristles air hard and white. So don't buy this or you will be sorry

          Yikes, something is amiss here, Bobby! To ensure a clear finish with Rust-Oleum Watco Lacquer Wood Finish, it must be applied with a good quality bristle brush or applicator and to a dry surface. It is also key to apply the product within the recommended temperatures and humidity level. If needing further assistance, please give us a call at (800) 901-0411.

          I prefer lacquer over poly for the drying time and the ability to repair flaws.

          I was very surprised to get as good a finish as I got by brushing on this lacquer. Two caveats: use a respirator and "no sanding between coats" amounts to--well, maybe. Light 220 ROS took out all the little nibs that landed on my work and left a great surface.
