Black Forest Ceramic Finishing Kits
Black Forest Ceramic Kits
Our Ceramic finishes are designed to be used as an additional layer of protection over top of your existing finish. We recommend our Black Forest Furniture Oil.
What makes our coatings different?
We are the Original Woodworking Ceramic Coating. Ceramic coatings have been around for years in the automotive industry, utilizing solvent based formulas. Not only are solvent formulas more hazardous to your health, they are not fully compatible with oil based finishes like the ones typically seen in woodworking. Excessive use of solvent based coatings will eventually strip the protective oil from your table. Our coatings are specifically formulated for use over woodworking finishes. By utilizing a water based formula, no damage is done to the oil underneath; the water simply evaporates after application, leaving the protective coating.
Typically, the protective ingredient found in ceramic coatings is SiO2 (silicon dioxide). However, in recent years, some incredible advancements have been made using Graphene as the protective ingredient, proving to be superior to SiO2. Therefore, all of the Black Forest coatings are made using Graphene.
Durable and scratch resistant finish that reaches a thickness of 2-2.5 microns per layer. The 9H hard finish bonds and penetrates into the surface.
Gold: 1 year protection
Platinum: 2 year protection
Diamond: 5 year protection
Improves the shine, smoothness and strength of the base coat.
