15 yr old cabinets

My 15 yr old cabinets have started to loose the clear finish. I do not know what type of finish is on the cabinets. Does anyone have a good way of finding out what type of finish they have? The company was no help to me.

It is likely a conversion lacquer. You should be able to clean up the cabinets and refinish with oil based poly. Read through this thread for details on application.
