The Japanese Seshime urushi (raw lacquer) is used among others for the manufacture of adhesives and fillers. In the Japanese lacquer technique, he also serves as a primer with various additives.
Note: Earlier, Seshime urushi (branch lacquer) was obtained from the thin branches of the lacquer tree. Today, Seshime urushi varnishes from various import raw lacquers and is therefore only a trademark for Ki urushi (raw lacquer).
Roiro urushi (black lacquer) is used in the Japanese lacquer technique for surface coating and as a basis for scattering of silver.
Transparent lacquer transluzent laquer - (Shuai urushi) is mixed 1 : 1 with colored urushi (here red lacquer)
Aka urushi also called Shu urushi (red lacquer) is used in the Japanese lacquer technique for surface coating and as a basis for scattering of gold powder.
Ki-urushi / seshime-urushi (raw varnish / branch varnish), shuai urushi (transparent varnish or translucent varnish) and roiro-urushi (black varnish) can be used normally for approx. 6 months after opening the tubes. After that, there may be a change in the properties under certain circumstances. It is therefore recommended to mix the "old paint" 1: 1 with fresh paint. All colored lacquers are always mixed with fresh syuai-urushi / hakushita-urushi (transparent lacquer or translucent lacquer) and can therefore be used for longer.
Advice on health and labor protection
