Spraying Lacquer Outdoors In Winter


Recommended Posts

Most lacquers are not cold-friendly because it takes too long for the solvents to evaporate - which can cause all kinds of undesirable effects. This is why some of us use waterborne finishes, esp. during the colder months because there are a few (KTM-9) that are quite safe for indoor usage.

any negative effects? will the lacquer mist freeze in the air?

i don't have anywhere to spray but outside in the cold.

I have the same problem. Here is what I do, I warm my can of nitro lacquer on a heat vent or in a bowl of hot water, let it warm for a good 5 or 10 minutes. step outside to spray part then come back inside almost immediately, put the part to a spare bedroom to dry.
