Dick Nite Top Coat U/A - Gen. Finishes EF HP Poly?

4 posts in this topic

I just saw that DN Top Coats will be gone indefinitely.

I just finished setting up my woodshop, building my epoxy station, paint box, and buying wood.

Ive got everything except the Top Coat. I have experience with Devcon but don't want to go that route.

Does anyone have experience with...

General Finishes EF High Performance Polyurethane Top Coat

from Rockler? I have a store near me.

Description is as follows.

This is one of the hardest, most durable consumer polyurethane top coats on the market today. It is non-yellowing and offers easy water clean-up. It contains all the consumer-friendly characteristics of PolyAcrylic Blend. In addition, it contains a UV Stabilizer to protect it from breaking down in sunlight and to protect the underlying stains from fading. With its pure polyurethane durability, it's a great choice for hardwood floors.

Any help would be great.

It sound like one of Targets coatings. I had some SC9300, and after reading some posts, here. I decided to test it. I put a coat on a lure that has been coated with an Etex/D2T mix.I brushed it on and hung dry. After two days I suspended it in water for 3 days. When I took it out, it appeared the same as when it went in. SO, it probably will work, BUT, I believe the Waterborne Urethanes are finicky to what they're top coating. Mine won't adhere to metal when put in water.

Pick up a Pt and give it a good testing. You can use scrap and throw aways to practice on. I found that brushing works better for me than dipping. A thinner build up and nearly as fast. It goes in smooth, not heavy like the epoxirs.

I prefer the viscosity and performance of Dick Nite but it's not the only moisture cured polyurethane. Various companies sell the stuff. Google "moisture cured polyurethane" and you'll see.
