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 (Syuai urushi) is mixed 1 : 1 with colored uruschi (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.
