I have veneer sheets of nacre that are .15 mm thick, that i would like to laminate with a urethane coating. I need a chemist specializing in urethane coatings to help identify a urethane, that will allow me to seal the veneer and give UV protection. Similar to an automotive clear coat, but can be applied with a brush or plastic spreader.
The coating needs to be light-fast, UV resistant, and allow for flex of the veneer. I would like to have the ability to either dip into the urethane and hang dry, or use a spreader to apply a very thin laminate coat around .10 mm
I have tested spraying tinted clear enamels using my airbrush which do not adhere well. I may need some kind of adhesion promoter, like Chemcraft ISOLANTE or similar.
