Definition - What does Lacquer Cote mean?

Laquer cote is a type of resin which is dissolved in a rapid-drying solvent made from aptha, toluene, xylene, and ketones. This process makes a hard clear or colored coating. This hard surface can then be buffed to obtain a polished, glossy finish.

Lacquer cote is used to finish a range of aesthetically pleasing products including sex toys such as ben wa balls and vibrators.

Kinkly explains Lacquer Cote

Sex toys finished with lacquer cote are prized for their distinctive, glossy finish and smooth surface. The user’s pleasure can be enhanced by using lacquer cote sex toys with a water-based lubricant. Silicone and oil-based lubricants will damage the lacquer cote finish.

There are no known allergy or toxin warnings associated with lacquer cote. Sex toys with this distinctive finish may be enjoyed by people with sensitive skin and allergies.

Lacquer cote is not porous which makes it very easy to keep clean. Lacquer cote sex toys should be hand-washed with warm water and a mild, antibacterial soap, and dried with a soft cloth after every use. A lacquer cote finish may warp or split in extreme temperatures. It’s best to avoid exposing lacquer cote sex toys to sudden temperature changes. Lacquer cote sex toys should also be kept in conditions with humidity ranging between 30 and 50%.
