Stopped by Lowes the other day to grab a can of Deft Crystal Clear Lacquer Spray. I've been using it for the last year with okay results. Biggest problem I've had is that it cures slowly, and never gets rock hard. Even after 2 weeks of drying, hardware still sinks into it. It's $8 a can. I tried Rustoleum's Clear Lacquer and get better results. It dries harder, doesn't sink, but still takes at least a week before handling it doesn't leave marks. I found it at Home Depot for $4 a can. Well, my local HD was out and I didn't want to wait, so that's how I ended up back at Lowes. They stopped carrying Deft, but they had Valspar Clear Lacquer. So I decided to give it a try. Really glad I did. 85 degrees F, 60% humidity The Valspar is dry to touch in 30 minutes and rock hard in about 8 hours. I let is set an extra day because it still smelled like lacquer and I could leave a fingernail mark in it. I checked it this morning with about 30 hours of cure time, it no longer smells like lacquer, fingernail mark bounces back in about a minute and dry sands to a fine dust, with no boogers on the sand paper. Minimal orange peel, leveled with 1400 grit wet and just a little elbow grease. It's $6 a can and has nearly twice as much material in the can, compared to the Deft and Rustoleum. I normally can get 3 wet coats on both sides out of a can of the others. I got 5 out of the Valspar and still have some in the can. Probably at least one more wet coat on one side. The spray nozzle is great and never sputtered once. The Deft is bad about that. Nozzle can clog mid spray. I always warm the can up in a bowl of hot water. It seems to help, but no more worries now that I found the Valspar. I haven't installed the hardware yet, but I left the bridge sitting on my test panel overnight after 2 days drying time. It didn't leave any marks or indentations. Anyone else used this?
