I'm working on a coffee table for a client, and I would normally go to
a high gloss finish. I'm trying a semi-gloss (per customers
requirements) and I'm getting a haze on the final coat. It's only been
24 hours, I'm thinking I wait a few days and buff it with 600 wet/dry
and soapy water. Is this because of the driers in the finish? Any other
suggestions? The client doesn't want a high gloss.
I apply poly to an outdoor pine pic table every o/ yr for fifteen. Alwasy
been fine until last yr. I will not use hi-gloss on an outdoor in sun
table top anymore. killer glare.
anyways last time, i got a haze. tried sanding, fine snading, tried
polishing compound. It was the conditions. Humidity. It was very very
humid. The finish looks litterally like milk paint white. Didn't go away.
Did when you wet it down. Didn't want to waste $ so I left it. Its
permanent. Prob have to sand down nearly, if not ALL the way. ALL. It has
a yr on it, and it is fading, as the finish is also, fading. Gonna need to
do it again soon. Going right down to bare wood, or close.
Do not apply this stuff when humid. Its ruined, In my case; you may have o/
I asked in alt.construction, or some o/ group like that, and they all
reccomend proruct called froggy, or something. They didn't like regular
poly at all. Only happened to me once. It was like 90RH.
Semigloss has an additive that makes it semigloss. It also clouds the film.
Assuming you have put on more than one coat either use gloss for all but the
final coat, or use gloss for all and dull with steel wool.
