We use a waterbased 2k (catalyzed) lacquer. That means we add a catalyst material to our primer, color and top coat with every coat we spray. This catalyst speeds up dry time and produces a much harder and durable surface. A 2k finish is defined as having a catalyst added. A 1k or pre-cat does not have a catalyst added to each coat.
Catalyzed or 2k lacquers are tricky and hard to do. Application is only through professional spray equipment. It dries in a very short amount of time, which also risks damage to the equipment if you don’t time it right. We believe though, the risk is definitely worth the gorgeous outcome!
