Aqua Coat X-119 water-base Sanding Sealer is a fast drying, self-crosslinking sealer for use with all Aqua Coat topcoat products. X-119 offers excellent adhesion in a clear, high-build film. High in solids, X-119 will help you produce a fast high quality film on all woodworking jobs.
Engineered for demanding furniture, cabinets & millwork projects, X-119 dries tack-free in 15-20 minutes in ideal conditions.
This product was developed to be sprayed but can also be applied with a synthetic brush or a foam pad. It's easy-to-sand and X-119 building properties truly make this an ideal sealer to use under all Aqua Coat Top Coats.
Q.) How do you apply Aqua Coat Sanding Sealer?
A.) A typical finish will require one to three coats of Sanding Sealer X-119, followed by one or two coats of any one of Aqua Coats Water-Based Clear Topcoats. Due to the high solids content in the sealer, it will build as quickly as the topcoats.
Before spraying sanding sealer, stir and strain. The first application of sanding sealer should be applied as a very light dust coat. Allow 10 minutes dry time. Then spray another coat building to 1 to 1.5 mil thickness. This coat should have an evenly wet and glossy appearance.
Because of the high solids and water content, Aqua Coat Water-Based Sanding Sealer X-119 is heavier and flows more slowly than solvent-based products. Even though it may appear that more finish should be sprayed, DON'T. Spraying more finish will result in a milky layer that will dry slowly and be the equivalent of four or more coats of lacquer. Allow the wet coat to dry 30-60 minutes. Sand lightly, remove dust by blowing or with a damp cloth.
"I completed a project on a piece of mesquite using Aqua Coat Sanding Sealer, Clear Grain Filler, and Aqua Coat Satin Lacquer. Great products! An additional project I completed for a friend I used Aqua Coat Satin Lacquer; a coffee table based on a pioneer buckboard wagon seat. Great product!"
