San Diego, California – November 16, 2016 – ShellacFinishes is proud to announce their new Royal-Lac Post-Catalyzed shellac-based wood finish. 
 
New Royal-Lac Post-Catalyzed wood finish, once again raises the bar in the wood coatings industry by providing the look and feel of shellac with quick curing, high solids and low VOC (<275gm/liter) finish for spray equipment. Based on a carefully tested proprietary blend of shellac and synthetic resins, the result is a superior product that compares well against any post-catalyzed finish in terms of durability, solids content, drying/cure time and exceeds SCAQMD VOC limits.
 
Cabinet makers know that the depth, color, and shine produced by shellac is unmatched by modern synthetic finishes such as Polyurethane, Nitro Cellulose Lacquer, or Urethane.  
 
Royal-Lac™ Post-Catalyzed combines the beautiful look and feel that cabinet makers and woodworkers love with a durability that is second to none and it competes head on with other synthetic finishes, thus proving that a sustainable natural product can find its place in the world of synthetic finishes.
 
Royal-Lac™ Post-Catalyzed is a proprietary formulation formed by cross-linking shellac with carefully selected synthetic resins to form new polyester chains that combine the look and feel of shellac with exceptional durability and can be used on all indoor furniture, cabinets and musical instruments!
 
“Royal-Lac™ Post-Catalyzed is a feather in my cap that I have pursued for quite some time” states Vijay Velji, owner of ShellacFinishes. Royal-Lac™ Original, released in 2014 is a successful product in its own right for the amateur DIY enthusiast. But many small and medium scale industrial customers were looking for a finish that would build, dry and cure fast. Royal-Lac™ Post- Catalyzed cures 10x faster!”
 
Robbie O’Brien from O’Brien Guitars writes:
 
“Royal-Lac™ Post-Catalyzed gives my guitars the beauty of shellac with the protection of synthetic lacquer. Truly an all in one finish.”
 
Andrew Mowry from Mowry Stringed Instruments writes:
 
“Like many luthiers, I've experimented with a variety of finishes and have been trying for years to find a finish that is ideal for musical instruments. From my testing, Royal-Lac™ Post-Catalyzed has most of the qualities I’d like to see: forgiving application, clarity, flexibility, durability, fast curing and the classic look of shellac.”
 
Jack Ipekjian from Pasadena Woodworks:
 
“Royal-Lac™ Post Catalyzed combines the beauty of shellac, the strength of the toughest varnish, and easy application by spraying or brushing, making it one of the best finishes for fine furniture as well as production cabinetry. The fast cure time helps get products out the door and into the hands of satisfied customers quickly. For the production minded manufacturer, Royal-Lac™ Post Catalyzed should be the top choice.”
 
Max Girouard from Girouard Mandolins:
 
“Having used several dozen finishes over the past few years and not being happy with any of them for one reason or another, we decided to give Royal-Lac™ Post Catalyzed a try.  It was everything we loved about a shellac based finish without any of the downfalls that are inherent in shellac finish films.  Incredible depth and 3D effect while looking at figured woods, perfect clarity, ease of application and durability that is comparable to any of the more modern finishes.  We asked ShellacFinishes for a coating with faster cure time and higher solids content so that less coats could be applied.  Vijay listened and introduced us to his latest product Royal-Lac™ Post Catalyzed finish.  We were able to apply it following the same finish schedule as our current water based finish, with an even faster cure rate.  It sands easily and buffs out to a beautiful shine.  We've put it through rigorous testing and are so pleased with all the results, we are transitioning over to this finish exclusively.”
 
Competitively priced, Royal-Lac Post Catalyzed is available in quart and gallons sizes in the traditional Super Blonde shellac variety.
