An ethylcellulose lacquer system for both decorative and protective purposes was developed for use on polystyrene plastics. It was found that a one-coat lacquer containing only alcohol solvents produced the most satisfactory finish. Formulations were based on experimental work, conducted to determine the effect of the various lacquer components on the plastic. The results of a study of formulations on a two-coat system are presented.
