Direction for Use

Shellac Sanding Sealer may be applied by rubber, brush, spray or cloth. Methylated spirit being added where necessary to adjust the consistency. Excessively thick coats should be avoided.

The sealer should be applied to the wood either untreated or previously filled and stained. When dry it sands easily without clogging the paper and provides an excellent smooth base for overcoating with shellac or wax polish.

An attractive satin finish for decorative work can be obtained by applying two coats of shellac sanding sealer and after lightly sanding the second coat apply a coat of SUPERWAX White polish with a cloth or OOOO steelwool pad. Rub up with a soft clean cloth. This finish is ideal for application to timber doors and creates a natural looking finish.
