What Are Metal Lacquers
The textbook definition of lacquers are resin-based solutions that get made into liquid by solvents, that then dry into a hard transparent film when exposed to air. “Lacquer” is often used alongside the term “varnish,” which it should not. Varnishes harden through the oxidization process. Whereas lacquers harden through the evaporation of their liquid solvents into the air. In general, a metal lacquer is a clear, protective layer that is applied to metals. It is useful on brass, aluminum, silver and copper surfaces. The main reason to use metal lacquers is for their protective finish against debris, dirt and other various contaminants.
Lacquers do not require any additional molecules to become hard. Once the solvent evaporates, the resins will become solid, which is why lacquers dry so quickly. They can dry within 5 to 10 minutes depending on the use. So lacquers are the perfect option for those who need a fast-drying solution when working with metals.

When Using Lacquers
When you use lacquers on metals, there are some rules to follow. Before lacquering, the metal must have a clean surface. So remove all dirt, dust and grease off the surface. Using a fine-grain sandpaper to remove these particles provides for a deeper clean. Then, tape any parts of the metal you do not want covered in lacquer to ensure safe use. Be sure to read the instructions, because different metals may require different types of coating. Our staff can help answer these questions for you.
Next, hold the metal firmly in one place so you can spray the entire surface with one layer at one time. When you apply the lacquer to the metals, do so in a dust free environment. Once sprayed on, make sure you leave enough time for the coating to dry before applying another layer. Lacquers often require multiple layers for the best results and drying between coats leads to the great performance of the metal lacquers. When you apply these lacquers, make sure you are wearing appropriate protective clothing, goggles and a breathing mask.
