  • Overview

Overview

Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish nourishes, protects and offers a lasting depth of sheen which enhances the natural beauty of any real wood surface.

This Wax Polish can in general be applied to most other wood finishes including water stain, solvent stain, French polish, varnishes, lacquers and oils. It can be applied to bare wood as a wax finish in its own right. Supreme Wax Polish will revive old or tired looking wooden areas and is suitable for use on all interior wood such as furniture, floors, skirting and dado rails etc.

Note: Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish can easily turn from a wax to a thick liquid if exposed to warm temperatures, vibration in transit or if the tin is shaken. The wax can still be applied in this liquid state and is actually preferred by some customers.

To get the wax to return to its solid state, simply stir and store in a cool place such as a garage or under stairs cupboard. Small tins of wax can be put into the fridge to solidify more quickly if required.

400ml tins of wax will solidify within 12 to 24 hours if stored in a cool environment, 5 ltr tins may take 24 to 48 hours.

Preparation

Sand the wooden surface with a medium sandpaper of around 120 grit, through to a medium / fine grit of 180 to 220 grit. Sand in the direction of the grain where possible, ensuring the removal of any residual glue and blemishes from the surface of the wood prior to the application of the Supreme Wax Polish. Take care to remove all traces of sanding dust from the area to be waxed. A coat of Manns Shellac Sanding Sealer can be used on open grained woods prior to application.

Application

All untreated surfaces need to be clean and dry before application

Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish can be applied with a clean cloth such as stockinette, although most cloths such as T-Shirt or old bed sheeting will suffice. Wax Polish can also be applied with grade 0000 wire wool, which smooths the surface of the wood whilst waxing it at the same time. To achieve a deep lustre, buff the waxed surface with a clean, coarse cloth such as stockinette.

To get the best results, apply sparingly working on small areas at a time. Leave the wax polish for around 10 minutes before buffing with stockinette cloth or a drill buffing brush to achieve a shiny finish.

Buffing by hand requires some work to achieve a high sheen level whereas a drill buffing brush makes the process quicker and easier. If using a drill buffing brush it's important to let the bristles do the work. If you push down on the bristles they will start to soften and remove the wax from the surface of the wood.

Maintenance

When maintaining pre-waxed wood it is advisable to use a clear wax (Fiddes call their clear one: 'Light'), coloured waxes are best used for repairing fine scratches, for example when a lighter shade is showing through or they are used to change the colour of wood when the initial finishing process is done.

Additional coats offer an improved patina and overall durability and although not essential fresh wax coats can be applied annually. The coloured waxes offer greater depth.

Storage

Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish has a shelf life of around 2 years and is ideally stored in an air tight container at normal room temperature. Any wax exposed to very hot or freezing temperatures should be discarded.

Simple to apply and buff up to a nice shine. Very good product
An easily applied polish which buffs to a nice shine with ease. I have a new oak floor in my living room and this product has really brought out the grain in the wood lovely. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

Good value, but not suitable for my needs
I found this quite difficult to use, and drying times between coats are not as quick as quoted.
Our feedback:-
The consistency of wax polishes varies enormously according to temperature. Above 22 degrees this one can be like a thick custard consistency and below about 8 degrees can be like shoe polish.

To make the wax soft it's better to stir it than to heat it as heat can make the solvent evaporate which makes the wax even thicker when it cools. (Also, of course, solvent products mustn't be heated for health and safety reasons.)

The drying times certainly vary but shouldn't be longer than 30 minutes maximum.

Good multi-purpose wax, soft texture, easy to apply
I have been using Fiddes waxes for years. They are good multi-purpose waxes and good value for money. My only gripe sometimes is, particularly when it is hot in the summer, is the consistency. Even in cold weather, it is very soft so you get a lot of wax on your brush. This becomes worse when it is hot and can lead to using too much wax, when it's not necessary.

Lovely smell - not too strong; easy to apply; gorgeous finish.
Just waxed an old Victorian pine chest of drawers which we inherited in a terrible state and have since had stripped. The chest now looks stunning in our old cottage and I find I can't stop waxing things - doors, chairs, even our antique pine kitchen!

Fantastic product
Best polish I've used, I did the oak table, oak framed sofa and chairs before hubby got in, as soon as he entered the room he noticed the difference he could not believe this was result of one polishing.The finish is lovely with a warm glow that happens when the wood is cherished.
