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.
