I want to use a water-borne spray finish because of my confined shop.
I've been brushing for years and recently purchased a HVLP gun.
I make furniture and small boxes and want a good all around finish.
I've been looking at Target Coatings ( http://www.targetcoatings.com/ ).
They sell water-borne poly, lacquer and varnish.
The varnish looks good to me but has an 8 month shelf life.
I would appreciate any suggestions from those of you using water-borne spray
You won't go wrong with Target's products. I've been using their
lacquers and poly's for about 3 years and couldnt be happier.
Haven't used the varnish, but if shelf life is a problem you can buy
in smaller quantities. I generally buy in gallons and it hasnt been
any trouble at all.
Waterborne finishes have come a long way in the last 15 years, as
witnessed by the finish on those shiney new cars you see on the road.
For woodworkers, Target is in the forefront of the research and are
continually improving their products, and developing new ones to make
our lives easier.
As with anything new there's a learning curve, but put in the time and
in the end you'll be very glad you did.
I have used Fuhr and Target products. I like them both but as the Fuhr
products are available locally they are presently the product of choice. The
one caveat is that WB stains on oak can be a bit of a problem. An easy
solution is to mix in some of their WB porefiller when you apply the stain.
I read the other replies. seems we are all using something different. I
use Enduro water bornes. They work great for me. One of the big WW
mags put them ahead of all the other reviewed finishes, but I forget
which mag and issue. It's been over a year. I use their "extra" stuff
like the Crosslinker and Conditioner. Crosslinker for durability for
horizontal surfaces and conditioner for flow out.
