The year was 1969 in Southern California and Grandpo Lucero started a small family business operating an industrial finishing company. Initially focusing on aluminum and steel the business expanded to include finishing composite, wood and virtually any other materials using industrial polyurethanes, enamels, single and two-stage acrylic enamel paints. The knowledge gained in the field of industrial finishing provided the backbone for when L.Co began developing its unique natural oil wood finishing products.
What almost 50 years of experience in industrial finishing taught The Lucero Company is the importance of using a good primer and sealer on any substrate prior to finishing. A good primer and sealer will extend the life of a finish, offer superior adhesion, protection and durability. We developed our wood finishing products by offering an optional but tried and true two-step process:
1. A long to medium oil varnish applied on the substrate first to seal and prime (Tung Oil Finish for interior and Exterior Oil Treatment for exterior).
2. A medium to short oil varnish applied on top of the primer to add extra layers of protection (Topcoat for interior and Exterior Varnish for exterior). Our lab tests show that using our 2-step system extends the life of the coating, helps with color retention and prevents cracking and peeling over time.
