473 ml - General Finishes High Performance Top coat Satin, Flatt, Gloss


General Finishes High Performance Top Coat is one of the hardest, most durable polyurethane top coats available to consumers and trade. 

It contains consumer-friendly characteristics of Polyacrylic Blend - flows and levels easily and has great adhesion. In addition it contains a UV stabiliser to protect the top coat and underlying stains from breaking down or fading from exposure to sunlight. The finish is extremely durable enough to be used on floors. This acrylic and polyurethane topcoat will produce a beautiful furniture quality finish on any project. Cleans up with soap and water. 

***Highly recommended by Shabby Nook***

Winner of Fine Woodworking's "Best Overall Choice Award," High Performance Topcoat was voted as the hardest, most durable consumer polyurethane topcoat.
