Golden Varnishes & Topcoats
Archival Aerosol Varnish MSA with UVLS is formulated with 100% solvent-based, reversible acrylic co-polymer resin. It is an easy to use spray varnish made with fast drying acetone and a propellant. Properly applied, it creates a durable, even film with the same features as GOLDEN brushable MSA varnish plus, excellent wet/dry state clarity. It resists changes in appearance, remains flexible. It has an adjustable fan spray tip that allows precise application and reduced overspray. Available in Gloss, Satin and Matte. Removable for conservation purposes.
MSA Varnish with UVLS (Gloss, Satin, Matte) is a Mineral Spirit based Acrylic resin system that forms a tougher, less permeable film than waterborne acrylic varnishes and can be applied to acrylic, oil and alkyd painted surfaces. It reduces dirt penetration and surface marring, offering an extremely level film with less foam and fewer pinholes. Available in Gloss, Satin and Matte, it is removable with Mineral Spirits after drying and is recommended for interior or exterior use
MSA (Mineral Spirit Acrylic) Solvent is the ideal solvent for thinning GOLDEN MSA Varnishes, which must be thinned before use. MSA Solvent assures clear, clean, even application time after time.GOLDEN MSA Solvent can also be used to remove MSA Varnish at a later time for restoration purposes
Polymer Varnish with UVLS (UltraViolet Light Stabilizers) is a waterborne acrylic varnish that dries to a protective, flexible, dust resistant surface over acrylic paint. It is removable with ammonia, and available in Gloss, Satin and Matte.
Gel Topcoat with UVLS (Gloss, Semi-Gloss) are not intended as a commercial topcoat for high wear items. They dry to a permanent, flexible, non-removable coating. The Gloss version dries with great clarity and a highly reflective surface, while the Semi-Gloss dries to a translucent, more wax-like finish and like all topcoats may appear to alter color saturation. GOLDEN Gel Topcoats are fully compatible with other GOLDEN Acrylic Colors, Mediums, Gels and Pastes, and can be blended with these products in any proportion. While formulated primarily as a topcoat, they can be used like other Gels to modify sheen and transparency, create texture, provide a clear barrier or coating for subsequent paint or other materials, and to extend product.
