Permalac Blackener is our original formula Permalac Lacquer with a transparent black tint added. This allows you to seal and blacken your metal in one step, no patina chemicals required. Use it to easily and quickly create a blackened steel or anodized look. One quart will cover approximately 100 square feet with a single coat.
NOTE: Due to state regulation, Permalac Blackener cannot be shipped to California. California residents should order Permalac NT Blackener.
Use Permalac Blackener just as you would Permalac. The substrate should be clean and dry before application. Wipe the surface clean with a acetone. For best results, a spray application is recommended. A minimum of three total coats is recommended. Apply thin coats for an even finish. Thin the first coat 1:1 with lacquer thinner such as #69. Thin each additional coat 4:1. Each additional coat will increase the blackening effect. If a lighter finish is desired you may wish to get some clear Permalac to use as a top coat. Use lacquer thinner or acetone to clean equipment.
