what is the general class of this product

next to this on the shelf was acrylic lacquer
this stuff didn't have any general classification and i asked the young fellow and he was very confident but eventually admitted he did not know
i am calling it acrylic enamel
http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/painters-touch-ultra-cover-2x/clear/
i am lacking in finishing knowledge and skills and found this out the hard way
Recoat: Within 1 hour or after 48 hours
I was not recoating within an hour and was not waiting 48 so sanding was bad i have it worked out now and it is a nice hard finish

Yea , with rustoleum products, if you don't do b4 1 hour or after 48, you wind up with the gassing off causing a really poor finish. I did it one time and found out too.
Just follow the directions and your fine.
I don't use painters touch, but use rustoleum. Dries nice and hard too over time.

based, and what you are using is not.
you need to sand the stuff with a lubricant. Either soapy water, or something like sikkens m600 paint prep. But I would never sand soon after. It needs to cure.

If you recoat too soon the solvents in the new coat soften/eat/reticulate the old coat. When it IS dry enought to sand, use silicon carbide paper wet on a sanding block.

You don't have a magnifying glass?

In fairness to the Comet, magnifying glasses work much better on flat surfaces than they do on cylinders such as the spray can he's using.

On a completely different tangent, the Rustoleum plant in Evanston Illinois, was sold to Home Depot. I was living in that city at the time, about 6 months after big orange opened they had to drive piles inside of the building cause of all the crap Rustoleum buried on the property. Later they were building a Steak and Shake in the parking lot two days before opening all four walls collapsed.

Rustoleum appears to call it "Acrylic Modified Alkyd", so I'd say you're close enough to right.
Going off on a tangent, has everyone noticed how useless Google has become as a search engine? Pretty much any query will give you a thousand places to buy whatever it is, but actually getting a link that describes a thing is now all but impossible.

product descriptions and reviews, Amazon.com does a decent job. For descriptions including product specs, I'd try the manufacturer's website.

Just like when I found Google b4 the masses. It was good back then. When you find something that works, use it.
