John Abbett Posted March 28, 2008 Report Share Posted March 28, 2008 I was looking up some info and found this. Nitrocellulose lacquer, 25% solution [C6H7N3O11] Clear to light yellow liquid This is a 25% solution of nitrocellulose dissolved in 65% acetone and 10% 2-propanol. Use as-is, or for most uses, thin to 5-10% with acetone. 1 quart, screw-top metal can. Shipping weight 3 lbs. Used on wooden products, furniture primarily, and on musical instruments and other objects to give a shiny outer protective coating. Also used to make Magician's "flash paper", sheets of paper or cloth made from nitrocellulose, which burn almost instantly, with a bright flash, and leave no ash. Does this mean our Guitars are very flamable? I assume this flash paper it with dry lacquer. I've not tried this, but since I have the end of a couple of rattle cans sitting around I may have to give it a shot. Anyone played with the flamable properties of this stuff? I for one am going to be a little more careful how much of this stuff I get in concentraion. I typically spray, then open the door to vent, then spray, so the wind doesn't blow my spray around. I don't think I want any concentration of this, it sounds explosive. -John Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
