I was finally able to get the black lacquer dining table to take a nice even coat. I am concerned now that that it will scratch with everyday use. I have read that using paste wax means it will need to be done frequently to maintain the protection and color. Its a rubbed out Sherwin Williams sheen. What's the best way to give it some additional scratch protection on the top? TIA

Should have just done it with conversion varnish, NC lacquers are going to get marred on a table no matter what you do.
Well, whats done is done, so I am looking to do what I can now. I went with what Sherwin Williams told me to use.

And what does SW say to 'fix' their end product? NC lacquer shouldn' be used on a table also I wouldn't ever use a wax as it complicates the recoat process.

I dont need to fix, I am looking for preventative steps. After they recommended the lacquer, I had read that pre-cat lacquers were durable and often used on table furniture. I am just trying to make it as durable as possible if theres more I can do, as it isnt my table.

I think the best you could do is sand to create mechanical adhesion then use a oil urethane or varnish. To be quite frank NC/precat pigmented lacquer is just the wrong choice for a table despite what sherwin told you.

with a little sanding that will adhere and be compatible on top of the black lacquer?
