Interior/Exterior Top Coats

100% Burn-In Technology in a Water Based Formula

EM6000 Production Lacquer (EPLv8.0) is an ultra clear, water based acrylic lacquer that utilizes advanced polymer resins and HAPS-Free solvent technologies to provide a unique, self-leveling wood finish designed for commercial and industrial applications. Formulated for use in furniture, cabinet, interior architectural and custom woodworking applications, EPL provides a fast drying lacquer system with exceptional clarity, outstanding adhesion qualities and a nitrocellulose-type appearance and performance in a Ultra-Low VOC (ULVOC), 100% water-based system.

Solvent Look and Feel

EM6000 Production Lacquer features a unique adhesion characteristic that allows it to bond to a wide variety of properly prepared substrates such as synthetic wood panels, carbon-fibre, PVC, ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This feature gives great latitude of use for the finishing professional when working with EM6000 Production Lacquer.

When used as a self-sealing system EM6000 Production Lacquer offers fast drying and sanding features identical to those of traditional nitro-cellulose lacquers and CAB acrylic systems. EPL generates excellent clarity and color definition when used with other sealers or as a stand-alone production finish. EPL is non-flammable, low in odor and cleans-up with water.

EM6000 Production Lacquer can be fortified with our CL100 Cross-Linker to create a post-catalyzed type lacquer. The addition of 5 to10% by liquid volume of CL100 will improve the physical durability of EM6000 by tightening the molecular structure of the cured resin. CL100 improves the resistance of the cured film against high pH cleaners, alcohols and slow evaporating household chemicals. See the TDS for CL100 Cross-Linker for more information.

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. Fine sand surface to be finished with the appropriate grade sandpaper based on the type of final finish required.

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.

Spray-apply each coat of EM6000 Production Lacquer with HVLP, Conventional or Airless/Air-assist spray equipment. Consult with your spray gun manufacturer for proper gun set-ups based on coating viscosity and intended use.

Spray gun operators must wear a NIOSHA approved respirator during the spray application of this material. Consult the Material Safety data Sheet of this material for safety and health procedures.
