  • Struggling to find WB lacquer source in BC (Langley)

    Hi friends. As the title says I'm having a hard time finding a place to buy waterborne pigmented lacquer. I've been using solvent based from Cloverdale paints, but want to try a WB. I have accounts at Sherwin and Cloverdale, but both places and multiple locations I've called don't sell their WB products. Can anyone in my region share where they are buying from these days?

    Thanks!
    Brad

      Richelieu if you have an account. Sometimes you don't need one though. Give them a call. They also carry Mohawk along with 2 other kinds.

        Try Wood Essence, a retail distributor who ships Canada-wide.

          Brad, my understanding is that SW sells finishing products only through their Commercial Coatings Division, which is a totally separate business entity from their paint stores, so you would need to find one of those near you or ask the paint store if they can order the product you want from the commercial division.
          I know there's a SW Commercial outlet in Surrey, but a google search for them might show one closer.

          Hope that helps

              Cloverdale also carries a WB lacquer made by CanLac. Most Cloverdale outlets have a 'spray' person that deals with those products.
              Innovative Manufacturing carries Milesi Wood Coatings

                      Here's another one for you Brad. These guys are listed on Target Coatings website as distributors and are in Burnaby and Delta, but the link only shows Benny Moore products, so if one of these locations is close to you, maybe give them a call. IMO, Target products are about as good as you are going to get for waterbased finishes, but the price puts some folks off!!
