Polyurethane Top Coat
Extreme Protection Clear Top Coat is an exceptional interior polyurethane that offers superb hardness, optical clarity, chemical and mar resistance. Extreme Protection is especially recommended for "top" surfaces such as tables, bar tops, cabinets and furniture. It is highly resistant to moisture and alcohol so it is great for use on any surface that demands a hard, tough, protective finish. It is excellent for use as a protective sealer over chalk paint. It will not yellow over white. It can be brushed or sprayed and has excellent flow-out and leveling properties. Allow 2 to 4 hours between coats.
Make your own colored top coat by adding any of CraftNique Color Boutique Concentrated Colors directly into Extreme Protection.

Extreme Protection Instructions For Use
All CraftNique products other than Color Boutique Concentrates, will adhere extremely well to most surfaces but we highly suggest cleaning each surface (except for bare wood) with a good degreaser or denatured alcohol and then wipe clean with a damp rag. It is not necessary to strip old finishes off, but we do recommend lightly scuff sanding with 240 to 400 grit sandpaper to help smooth out any imperfections and provide some tooth for the finish to adhere to. CraftNique products are water-based so it is very important to make sure there are no waxes or silicones present when finishing. Do not use tack cloths or stearated sandpapers as they contain waxes to help remove sanding dust and may result in adhesion problems.
Apply Extreme Protection at room temperature best between 65 to 75 degrees.
For Brushing - Apply long, even strokes using light pressure. Do Not over work or push foam into applicator or brush. Allow any bubbles to pop on their own. Extreme Protection will self level as it dries.
For Spraying - Extreme Protection works with most spray equipment. We suggest spraying on a test piece first to find a good setting. Usually anywhere from 20 to 40 psi with a needle tip of 1 to 2 will work well. Use thin, even coats.
Coverage - Extreme Protection covers approximately 125 sq ft per Quart. Most surfaces will need anywhere from 2 to 5 coats.
Dry Time - Allow 2 to 4 hours drying time in between coats. If using an oil based stain, make sure it is completely dry and gassed off before applying Extreme Protection. Oils can take anywhere from 72 hrs to several weeks to completely dry.
Cure Time - CrystaLac Extreme Protection will be ready for light use within 24 hours. It will completely cure and continue to harden over a period of 30 days.
