Rust-Oleum offers four lacquer spray paint options--three colours and one clear coat--according to the company's online catalogue and website. These paints add a hard, "factory-like finish" to wood, metal plaster, masonry or unglazed ceramics. All are quick-drying and can be used for indoor or outdoor projects. After application, the paint hardens to a "high lustre." If a deeper, glossier colour is desired, Rust-Oleum recommends sanding the first layer you apply and repainting the object.
Review the Rust-Oleum's Do It Yourself Resources if you want a larger colour selection. Depending on your project, you may be able to use a different type of paint plus the company's polyurethane spray finish to provide a high gloss.
Rust-Oleum was founded in 1921 by Captain Robert Fergusson in his attempt to stop rust on his marine vessels. He noticed that an accidental spill of fish oil stopped rust in an area of his fishing vessel. Back on dry land, he eventually concocted a fish oil-based paint that stopped rust, dried quickly and didn't smell. Now, Rust-Oleum includes 25 different paint brands under such names as Aqua, Nano Shield, Parks, Varathane and Zinsser.
Rust-Oleum now makes products for automotive, building, concrete and marine professionals, do-it-yourselfers, remodelers and hobbyists. The company manufactures primers, paints, sealants and finishes in both spray form, and in cans to be applied with brushes. Two popular paints include "Cabinet Transformations" and "Countertop Transformations," which provide an inexpensive way to create the look of a new kitchen without the expense of new countertops and cabinets. Rust-Oleum's "Road Warrior" brand is manufactured specifically to reseal and protect pickup truck bed liners.
Spec Wizard & Information
Rust-Oleum produces so many varieties of preparation, paint and finish products that it's developed an online specification wizard to assist industrial customers in determining bids. For everyday consumers, the company's website includes a library of less technical material, do-it-yourself project ideas, newsletters and case studies.
Lacquer Spray Colors
Lacquer is a clear or coloured "finish material." It dries to a hard, glossy finish that indicates depth. Because lacquer dries so quickly, it's usually applied with a sprayer unless it's specially formulated. Chinese Red (colour 243826) provides a wonderful way to capture visual attention toward a beautifully crafted object. Gloss Black (colour 1905830) is one of the expected standards, although this lacquered paint has a depth due to its gloss. Another standard, Gloss White (colour 1904830) is also available from Rust-Oleum. Gloss Clear (colour 1906830) is used to maintain an "as is" weathered finish or to protect any one of your paint or craft projects.
