EM6500 Pigmented Spray Lacquer can be fortified with our CL100 CrossLinker to create a post-catalyzed type finish. The addition of 5 to 10% by liquid volume of CL100 will improve the physical durability of EM6500 by tightening the molecular structure of the cured resin. CL100 improves the resistance of the cured film against high pH cleaners, alcohols and slow evaporating household chemicals. See the TDS for CL100 Cross-Linker for more information.

    Absolutely love this product. I’ve been struggling for years with hand application of paint on my furniture and wanted to get into spraying. Its a learning curve and so far I’ve been applying with a cheap turbine hvlp that Im going to upgrade soon. This is an amazingly durable beautiful white finish but the main reason its so great are the low VOC’s when spraying. I wear a respirator when spraying which is a must. I have no where near appropriate ventilation in my enclosed basement shop but I can still spray without gassing out the whole building. It sands beautifully as well so being a newbie to spraying im still a little heavy handed from time to time so get runs here and there that are super easy to sand out. Want to try clear coating with the em7000 so looking forward to improving my spray technique and this is the perfect stuff to practice with…almost forgot the water cleanup might actually be the best thing about this.

    Great product! From the easy online ordering to the ease of application. I spray with a 2 stage HVLP and a 1.8 tip and have no issues. It goes on well, dries well in not ideal conditions and provides a great looking finished product. I love the ability to match both Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams colors by simply having the code. Durability seems to be really good as well, but I need more time to fully tell. Overall, great product and will continue using it and even experiment with other lines from Target Coatings.

    This is such a great product. I have used it on several cabinet and Furniture pieces. I have used the tinted as well as the raven black. It sprays on so easy and dries fast. At my wood shop I do not have a spray booth so I try to stay away from the stinky finishes as well as those that take a long time to dry. Emtech EM6500 is the best option for me along with all the other emtech products.

    After much research, I settled on the 6500 as my basecoat/topcoat product for a variety of home projects, from repainting interior doors to finishing a handmade bed set for my 3 yr old grandson. FANTASTIC choice! This stuff sprays and lays down super smooth and dries quickly – allowing multiple coats within the same afternoon. The 6500 sands (both wet and dry) very easily, allowing a super smooth final coat to be applied. On the bed set, I applied the EM9000 poly over the 6500 to add a measure of extra protection from the 3 year old. Again, a fantastic finish. I highly recommend the Target products!
