COPPERLAC is an air-dry lacquer, engineered to provide highly durable interior and exterior protection on color copper. The addition of UV and corrosion inhibitors to COPPERLAC assures endurance in harsh conditions such as arctic freezing, desert heat, beachfront salt air, and acid rain.
The semi-gloss finish is just right - neither too glossy nor flat. It has been discovered that even a blow torch cannot discolor a brass fitting protected by COPPERLAC.
Spray application is the usual method, although brushing may be used. Any dust collected on the copper sheet should be blown or wiped off with a dry cloth before COPPERLAC is applied. If using a spayer, you will need to mix COPPERLAC WITH lacquer thinner in a 4 to 1 ratio.
COPPERLAC is applied as a base coat which acts as a sealant. Allow three to four hours to cure between coats. Epoxy can be applied after your base coat or you may add additional coats of COPPERLAC until desired thickness is achieved.
Air dries to the touch in less than 5 minutes. Air dries hard in three to four hours, depending on coating thickness, temperature, etc.
