Nitro v Poly v UV-C cure: How does UV-C Cure technique compare to other traditional finishing methods?
Unlike Nitro Lacquer (“nitro”), whose chemical composition is harmful to the environment, the UV-C cure technique is environmentally green friendly. The only risk is exposure to UV-C light but with our protective gear, included when you buy this unit, there is no need to worry!
UV-C cure finishes are extremely durable and scratch resistant as compared to Nitro finishes which tend to crack and turn yellow as the wood of the guitar ages.
Although Polyurethane/Polyester and Nitro finishes are fairly fast-drying, UV-C instantly cures the guitar finish reducing you overall production time. making it easier to meet deadlines.
UV-Cure finishes require a very thin top-coat spray which does not weigh done the vibration ability of the wood, adding to the overall tone and quality of sound
Whatever your actual preference, the cure UV-C kit will give you more options.
