Dead Flat . A non-yellowing, low odor, water based durable topcoat.
Prep for success
Be sure the painted surface to be topcoated has dried at least 4 hours before applying the Couture Topcoat.If the surface is glazed wait 24 hours or until the glaze is dry.
For increased smoothness, if desired, use 400 grit sandpaper on your painted work prior to starting; wipe off the dust with a damp cloth and let the surface dry.
It is not recommended for bare metal surfaces.
Warning: failure to properly prep some wooden surfaces may result in a discoloration of the topcoat, especially noticeable on light paint colors. Certain wood species (for example: Oak, Cherry, and Mahogany) have tannins that can leach from the wood to the surface causing a yellowing or brownish look. It is NOT the topcoat yellowing. This yellowing or brownish look problem can happen with Varnish, Lacquer, and many topcoat products. These products while curing, dry from within and have a tenacity to pull out the tannin material. Proper prep can eliminate this problem. Please note many primers and primer bonders sold do NOT have the ability to halt the bleed thru from tannins. Use two coats of a Stain Blocking Primer waiting 30 minutes between coats prior to painting your first coat of paint.
