Default Acid-based polyurethane

I received my walnut stock for my Mosin Nagant today. It's beautiful. Boyds does a good job.

I've got to take off some wood so that the turned down bolt will close and also to fit my Rock Solid Industries scope mount. Even though they made it to order, they wouldn't sell it to me unfinished. They told me to touch it up with acid-based polyurethane.

What the heck is that? Anyone ever use it?

Thanks.

Never heard of it either but looked it up and apparently there are different types of acid bases. https://www.google.com/search?q=acid...w=1366&bih=643

I spent quite some time trying to find out what it was and who makes it. Google didn't really help me. I'll try your link, though.

It's also known as conversion varnish. Good luck finding it in anything lesss that a 5 gallon container.

ou might find someone in a cabinet or furniture shop to help you out. Bad stuff if you don't use a proper respirator.

I use conversion varnish all the time. I thought the stock smell like it, but I didn't want to risk using an incompatible finish on the bolt cut, and when pressed, Boyd's were insistent that it was indeed acid-based polyurethane, even when I told them it smelled like conversion varnish.

You can buy one gallon containers of Lenmar conversion varnish sealer and conversion varnish top coat. I order them from Brackin Wholesale in Dothan. They're only $35 a gallon, but the UPS charge is insane.

I've never heard it called acid-based poly, though. No info on the internet, either.

Pretty sure it's the same thing. Lenmar is a great product. You might try Paint mart on Fairfield. Greg might be able to have it thrown in on top of another order.

I already had a gallon of conversion varnish sealer and a gallon of top coat sitting on my work bench. I wondered why a wood products company would use polyurethane over conversion varnish. That seemed really stupid given how wonder conversion varnishes are.

You get plenty of hits on google for "acid cured conversion varnish," but I have yet to find the term "acid based polyurethane" used in the context of wood finishes. Maybe the ladies who answered the phone were a little confused.
