The philosophy behind the new EM1000 Universal Sanding Sealer is to offer a truly clear, ultra-low VOC water based wood coating that allows the true substrate color to reveal itself while remaining multi-functional in its intended use. This new product is engineered to function as, 1) Pre-Stain Wood Conditioner/Sealer, 2) Clear, Universal Sanding Sealer. 3) Color Delivery Vehicle, i.e. special effects spray stain, shading/toning vehicle or used as a translucent stain when tinted with universal pigments. So far this product has shown great diversity in its performance qualities and ease of use in all three arenas.
