Manns Trade Extra Tough Pro Lacquer is a highly versatile, professional grade, two-component interior lacquer. It's suitable for most interior softwood and hardwood surfaces that require a high degree of protection including doors, table tops, counters, worktops, skirtingboards and even floors. Its exceptional durability makes it ideal for commercial environments including restaurants, community halls, clubs, pubs, offices, flats and in hallways, corridors and more.
This lacquer has antimicrobial properties, offering protection against E. coli, MRSA, Salmonella, Listeria and other harmful bacteria with a 99% kill rate after 24 hours, making it especially suitable for table tops, kitchen worktops and other food preparation surfaces.
Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free of any dust, dirt or other surface contaminants.
Foor improved adhesion and durability, surfaces to be lacquered can be primed with one of the following Manns wood primers:
|Manns Extra Tough Primer||A water-based, multi-purpose primer, suitable for all bare, solid and engineered wood|
|Manns Classic Interior Primer||A water-based primer for use on interior wood surfaces in domestic and commercial environments|
|Manns Trade Intense Primer||An intense primer for use with Manns interior wood varnishes and lacquers. Ideal for exotic hardwoods and other oily or resinous wood types|
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times.
Manns Trade Extra Tough Pro Lacquer comes supplied with enough catalyst / hardener for the 5 litres of lacquer. If part mixing, use 10 parts lacquer to 1 part catalyst.
Another approach for part mixing is to measure the height of the fluid in both the lacquer and hardener containers and mark off at an increment of 25% with a marker pen. Then it's easy to mix just a quarter, half or three quarters of the lacquer as required.
Please note: Once the catalyst has been mixed with the lacquer, it has a usable open time of around 4 hours. It is recommended that only the amount required for each coat is mixed at any time to avoid product wastage.
Application brushes and other equipment should be cleaned immediately after use with warm, soapy water and wiped dry with a clean, dry cloth.
Once dry, Manns Extra Tough Pro Lacquer can be cleaned on a daily basis with a soft, dry microfibre or cotton cloth. These can be dampened to remove stubborn marks or scuffs.
For more stubborn marks or for periodic cleaning, use a dedicated, pH balanced wood cleaner such as Woodleys Wood Surface Cleaner. Wooden surfaces should never be saturated with water or cleaned with household detergents or cleaners as these can degrade the finish over time.
How long does Manns Trade Extra Tough Pro Lacquer keep once the catalyst is mixed? Can it be kept in an air tight container between coats?
Once the Catalyst has been added the lacquer has a maximum usable, or 'open time', of around 4 to 5 hours. It is advised to only mix the amount required rather than the whole tub as once the hardener is added it cannot be stored for longer.
