I have an amazing opportunity come my way!! The folks at Environmental Technologies (ETI) sent me some Envirotex Lite to try out. My first question (and I bet yours) was “what is envirotex lite??” Well let’s start with a formal description:
Pour On High Gloss Finish!
Envirotex Lite is a water clear reactive polymer compound. It cures to a thick, glossy coating in about 8 hours at 70°F, and reaches full strength and toughness in about 48 hours. This durable, resilient material requires no polishing to produce a high gloss. One coat is all that is usually required for a deep attractive finish, however, two or more coats maybe applied one over the other by simply wiping the surface with a clean cloth and alcohol prior to re-coating.
Now for the informal “Angie” description (all opinions are mine):
Envirotex Lite is like an EXTRA thick protective poly to add to the top of your furniture pieces! Like 50 coats of a typical product…all at ONCE!! Sum it up in one word…awesomeness!! I am in love with this product! Seriously, I am sold. This is now my “go to” for furniture refinishing. Plus my head is spinning from other uses for this fab product.
You MUST READ the instructions carefully. They must be followed exactly. The instructions come with the package or can be viewed online here. I found it was an easy product to use once I got the hang of it. But read then re-read then re-read again the instructions. Follow the steps in order. I had absolutely NO issues with the product, application, instructions, anything. It all worked perfectly! For large projects like this, you are going to need to use a torch for a few minutes. I was intimidated. But guess what?? I used one….all by myself!! Worked like a dream! If I can do this, you can do this!!
Now are you ready for the good stuff?? Check out my nightstand:
Do you have furniture in your home that is just screaming for this product?? Let me know about it! Last but not least….a little before and after comparison!
