House&Canvas Clear Topcoat
Size: 1 US Quart
Add long-lasting protection to your high traffic surfaces with our water-based polycarbonate topcoat available in flat or satin finish.
When topcoating dark colors like Shadow and Rich Navy, consider Satin Finish or House&Canvas Ultra-Matte Wax Topcoat. The flatting agents required to reduce sheen in flat finish topcoats may slightly reduce clarity and dull dark paint colors, resulting in hazing and streaking. Always test House&Canvas Flat Finish Clear Topcoat in an inconspicuous area before beginning.
Preparation: Ensure the surface is completely dry and free of any dust or debris. Stir thoroughly from the bottom before and during application. Do not shake. Do not apply over a previously waxed surface.
Outdoor: Ensure the surface is fully coated. Any area not covered will be susceptible to weather damage. Not intended for areas exposed to extreme temperatures, harsh weather conditions or direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
Application: Work in a well ventilated area. Apply an even amount using a quality synthetic bristle brush, foam brush, pad applicator, roller or sprayer. Apply in smooth, even strokes in the direction of the wood grain. Each stroke should be from one end of the surface to the other. Do not stop half way through. Do not use a back and forth stroke. Avoid heavy pressure and back-brushing. Allow 2* hours before recoating. Between each coat, use a fine-grit sandpaper (220) to remove any hazing, bubbles, drip marks or build-up. Remove all dust before recoating. Wait 24* hours before light use. Allow 21* days to fully cure before heavy use or cleaning.
Cleanup: Wash brushes and equipment with warm soapy water immediately after use.
Storage: Wipe away any excess product from the lip of the can to prevent rusting. Ensure the lid is fully sealed when not in use. Store indoors at room temperature. Avoid extreme heat and freezing.
