Reports are in from the field...Professional Wood Finishers love using M.L. Campbell's Krystal High-Build Sealer.

Krystal High-Build Sealer


Just one coat of Krystal High-Build Sealer delivers roughly 2 mils of coating weight, helping to prevent sand-through. Most competitor sealers can only provide 1 mil to 1.5 mils of coating weight. With this product, wood finishers gain 1 mil to 1.5 mils in coating weight. And, this wood sealer allows professional finishers to sand 15 minutes after spraying because it powders up well. Krystal High-Build Sealer also has a little bit of sheen to it, making it easier to sand.

M.L. Campbell recommends at least 3 mils of coating to give a professional piece proper protection. When one coat of M.L. Campbell's Klearvar finishing system is applied overtop just one coat of Krystal High-Build Sealer, a very high dry coating average of between 3.6 mils and 4.1 mils is achieved. To get this dry coating level with most competitor products, three coats need to be applied.
