    NEO NC Lacquer is a fast drying, nitrocellulose (NC) based wood lacquer for spray application. Gives a pleasant semi-matt sheen.
    NEO NC Lacquer was developed for the furniture industry. The advantages, compared to normal wood lacquers, are that the use of a sanding sealer is not required. NEO NC Lacquer can be sanded easily soon after application.

    A two-coat application is sufficient even on soft woods such as S.A. pine.
