Chestnut shellac sanding sealer 500ml

Shellac Sanding Sealer is the traditional way of sealing timber prior to applying a polish or a wax. Our version has a high percentage of real shellac which means it does the job extremely well, dissolved in an ethanol solution to make it easy to apply and quick drying. Applied by cloth, brush or spray it dries in about 20 minutes, making it very popular for cabinet and architectural work as it is easy to keep a wet edge running. It is also popular with woodturners and highlights the natural grain of the timber extremely well. Sand back lightly after application and apply Friction Polish, French Polish or any of our waxes on top. Conforms to EN71 Part 3 – suitable for toys and nursery furniture.
