    Is laquer considered a sand and sealer?
     
  2. laquer is a type of paint, it dries fast and can be applied in many coats. it should be wet sanded with 1500 grit or higher paper before the application of some type of clearcoat.

    I'm not certain that I understand your question. Laquer is a sealer like most any type of finish.

    There is such a thing as sanding sealer which can be laquer based but can be a number of different compounds. It's used to fill the pores of wood and is compounded to sand easily. If you want a slick shiny finish on woods such as oak or pine, start with sanding sealer and finish with your choice of finishes.

    Hope this is what you wanted to know.
