Wood Lacquer

2 in mahogany, to enhance the colour of mahogany finish.
It acts as filter for wood pores. It may not be necessary to use this where the grain finish is required.
This is the last easily noticed on finished furniture and fittings. There are three types: The High build, Pre-catalyzed and Melamine range of laquers.These are applied on wood by spraying to give the finished product desired appeal in terms of glossiness and ability to withstand desired use.
Each of these finishes has its unique characteristics. The desired end result will determine the most appropriate laquer to use.These help to keep the wood in top shape for a very long time.
