Thin and clean up WR-LPU Topcoat with water.

WR-LPU product kit contains a can of paint and a bottle of crosslinking material *. The paint by itself cures to a very high-quality coating, without the crosslinker. However, the addition of the crosslinking material produces a tougher and more durable film. It will be more chemical and fuel resistant, have better gloss retention and generally last longer than a film cured without the crosslinker.

Crosslinker image

Crosslinker - WR-LPU CROSSLINKER

The addition of WR-LPU Crosslinker produces a tougher and more durable film. It will be more chemical and fuel resistant, have better gloss retention, and generally lasts longer than a film cured without the crosslinker.
Varnish Preservative image

Varnish Preservative - BLOXYGEN

Problem: Oxygen or moisture sensitive products dry out, cure, and harden during storage. When we store these products, the oxygen or moisture that's sealed in the container continues to cure and thicken the product, eventually forming a skin over the top. This skin is wasteful, time consuming, and messy to remove. Sometimes, hardened particles can clog spray guns, run the final finish, or destroy the remaining liquid.

Solution: Simply, we need to prevent any oxygen or moisture from reacting with the product. By using a blanket of protective inert gas to purge the container, you can store your finish safely and use ALL your finish, not just the first half.

The EndRot Kit image

The EndRot Kit

Why replace when you can restore? Rot is a fungus and it can spread quickly, infecting, and then destroying sound wood in its path. Replacement can be expensive or time consuming and sometimes nearly impossible. Cutting out the rotten areas may not remove all of the "infected" wood which will continue to rot.

There is a better way: The EndRot system, for Complete Wood Repair and Restoration. With The EndRot system, you can:
