What Is the Average Cost of Lacquer Per Gallon? Average Lacquer Price

The average cost of lacquer is $25 per gallon. A lacquer is a single-component, pre-catalyzed, nitro-celluloid finish that has 12-18% solids by volume. In general, lacquer is a clear or colored varnish that dries by solvent evaporation. Lacquer is more durable than shellac. Often people mistake a traditional lacquer to a conversion varnish. However, a conversion varnish is a high-end solid, two-part post-catalyzed lacquer. Conversion varnish is also 40-60% solids by varnish and is chemical-cured. Lacquer is also relatively cheaper as conversion varnish costs almost 2-3 times the lacquer’s price.
