Making Nitrocellulose Hardern


Recommended Posts

Sadly it will never ever harden like a polyester or polyurethane finish as the polys are a 2K based product which hardens by a chemical addition ie the catalyst or activator and nitro cures by air. To be brutally honest I cannot think why anyone still uses nitro as its a piss thin poor finish and not resistant to nothing! There are absolutely excellent products on the market like AC lacquers and polys thaat put on correctly and flatted out will give you excellent results ie gloss and durability, I switched over to chemically hardened finishes about 9 years ago if not more because of the headache and poor results obtained with nitro and single pack acrylics. Search the net there is a multitude of products out there and find one that suits you, hope this helps :D
