What happened to Pre-Catalized Lacquer and Conversion Varnish?
Both of these professional finishes are becoming more and more popular with amateurs. The new rise in popularity of HVLP spray set-ups is partially due to the new self contained turbine models - no compressor required, at reasonable prices.
If you are spraying lacquer or conversion varnish on a spray table or work bench, it will become dust before it reaches the floor.
You can spray the primer and 2 to 3 top coats, clean up and be done in less than an hour. Each coat becomes dust free in about 2-3 mins. and you can handle and sand if about 5 minutes.
