CIC’s LOW VOC Acrylic lacquer in action

The Rapidly expanding Church of Scientology recently renovated one of there  churches at 1413 L Ron Hubbard Way, Los Angeles  and in so doing wanted to use an environmentally friendly low VOC product that would not yellow and yet be tough enough to with stand the beating of  commercial wear and tear.

After a lot of testing they settled on the CIC acrylic lacquer it is nearly as hard  as a pre-catalyzed lacquer with out the toxic acids but  it doesn’t yellow as will all nitrocellulose lacquers.

 Additionally they needed something very clear that would highlight the Walnut veneer which was the theme of the cabinetry.

Here are some pictures of the wood work and the finish:

a phenomenal finishing job

It's a little hard to capture the clarity of this coating with a camera

  3. I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your website.
    It appears as though some of the written text on your posts are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This may be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve
    had this happen before. Many thanks
