    Nitrocellulose Lacquer in Canada (update)

    I get quite a few e-mails regarding nitrocellulose lacquer and where you can get it in Canada. There was a thread here somewhere that I had posted to and gave out some info on where to get it in a couple of places that I called and confirmed that they do have it.

    Anyway, the search just got allot easier:

    http://www.cabotstain.com/cabot/pdf/...ng-Lacquer.pdf

    Please note that they also sell lacquer in a spray bomb - it is not nitro. Brushing lacquer aparently is commonly nitro based - so ask for brushing lacquer. Also, I'm not sure that the Cabot Sanding sealer is compatible with their lacquer as they only state that it is compatible with their varnishes and poly.

    You can pick this stuff up at Lowes in Canada. Minwax also has brushing lacquer which is also nitro based, but I can't find it anywhere (they also have a sealer that is designed to work with it).

    I was after sanding sealer when I stumbled accross this, I really have no interest in nitro lacquer and I don't use it myself.

    Hope this helps.

    I was just there, you can get it in a 3.8l bucket and in quarts. About $45 for the 3.8l and $14-16 for the quart.

    You can also buy spray cans of Watco Clear Lacquer (in gloss and satin) at most HomeDepot locations- it's nitrocellulose.
