Catalyzed, not Catalytic (Follow-Up #15)

"doing a search on Google either term is acceptable; I got 5,100 hits for catalized conversion varnish and 5,160 hits for catalytic conversion varnish. To be technically correct, I probably should have hyphenated it: catalytic-conversion varnish as it is a compound adjective"

It's "catalyzed" (verb transitive), not "catalytic" (adjective). The addition of a catalyITIC agent makes it a catalYZED varnish.

For an explanation of what makes a catalyzed varnish, see the attached link from Finishing Magazine.
