Spray with a small lacquer spray gun using 45 PSI compressed air. Holding gun about 6-8 inches from surface, insuring spray is perpendicular to surface, make three overlapping coats, going from top to bottom on first and last, bottom to top on second. Lacquer thinner cleanup. Excellent UV, scuff and water resistance. No visible effect on surface. Completely clear, does not affect matte/gloss finish.) Very economical, coverage costs about 3-4 cents per square foot. Water resistance is quite good, "coke spill" blotted up results in near-perfect restoration of original finish, no staining or other effect on color. There are no adverse results observed.
Requires small laquer sprayer using compressor, cleans with laquer thinner. Protects against UV, yellowing, scuffing, humidity and is water reistant. I produce large board game maps (48 x 72 inches)on an HP DesignJet on which counters are placed and moved. PremierArt Print shield is invisible, easy to apply, and provides excellent protection in this environment. There is nothing else like it. It is inexpenisve, when used and applied properly. It does require wearng a mask and proper ventilation during application. Drys virtually instantly. We apply three coats.
