spray finishes

need quick advise! trying to help a friend get his restaurant open. I have about 70 raw beechwood chairs have been stained with thinned out laytex, which raised the grain some. Time is of the essense, so a lot of in between coats sanding is not going to happen, (plus there are a zillion surfaces on a laddar back chair) What I'm thinking is a qiuck sanding of areas that will have the most guest contact, then spraying a few coats of something.. oil base poly, or varnish?? Ideas? Many thanks, Dan

Build with 4-5 coats of acrylic sanding sealer, dont sand at all till the final coat of sealer, then top coat 1-2 coats done! same can be done with nitro sealer but it will yellow over time, poly to. may take less sealer coats if the grain is not to bad, do sample first!!!!

Sincerely,

CHEMMY

Thanks! Can I use any type of sprayer? Does it have to be HVLP like for oil base and varnishes?

It does not have to be HVLP. Any spray gun...with an appropriate compressor will work. Do not use a yard pump sprayer.

Yes you can use a conventional sprayer to spray varnish. You just will probably have to thin the varnish a little more. Now addressing your original post if you are in a hurry and speed is more important than quality you could use a nitrocellulose lacquer. A coat of that will dry usually in 15 minutes. It will take a little sanding between coats but you can usually sand a chair in a couple of minutes. An oil based varnish is a much better finish but it takes overnight for a coat to dry.

Lacquer will work just fine as long as yellowing is not an issue, check with your client to make sure ok?
