CIC solvent conversion varnish v.s. CIC waterborn conversion coating

This is a great video from Eric Reason, Whose permission I have to repost this video comparison of  the CIC waterbase conversion product and  its solvent based alternative.  This is know as destructive testing, the video does a phenomenal job of showing the testing he does to determine which has a greater resistance to solvents. The only thing that I would want to know is how long these board cured before the testing. I love the destructive Rub testing as it shows at what point will  a coating fail.

Something to be mentioned here is that a regular lacquer finish would have been stripped clean down to the bare wood in the 10 rubs of a lacquer thinner or acetone.  by comparison to that these finishes are pretty tough. That being said don’t leave your Kids and a gallon of lacquer thinner alone in your newly finished Kitchen 🙂
