My father left me the mix out to make vinyl lacquers he was head chemist and was given the task to make the mix and that what he did with 3 men team. His 2 friends died loooong time ago. He would have become 101 next december but he died last week.
I would welcome you to let me me know what would be the best to do now ?
Thanks for posting this. If what you are saying is that you have documentation and knowledge of lacquer formulations for creating lacquer masters, then you are in a unique position. Most aspects of vinyl record production have been expanding (record labels, new pressing plants, new mastering studios etc..) but we have not seen anybody willing to take the initiative to create a new lacquer plant. With only 2 plants that currently supply the worlds increasing demand, it is very much needed. It will be some work, but I believe (as do many other professionals and hobbyists) that there is defiantly a market for an alternative lacquer plant/product. I think I speak for the entire lacquer cutting community when I say, YES PLEASE GO FOR IT!
What was the name of the company your father worked for?
I too have a lacquer disk formula that was passed down to me from my Father that was very successful here in the United States. The issues you may face are simply the massive cost’s to build a lacquer manufacturing plant or perhaps have a plant make the formula for you. Also building a plant to process and coat the disks. I have spoken to several experts in this field, and after looking at the cost to do this, it would take a long time to make some a profit. Perhaps the options are better for you in your part of the world.
