  • 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.

Easy to use, superb finish
This is definitely my favourite wax finish. Whether I'm applying it by hand or with a buffer I always get a lovely silky finish that has depth rather than just a surface gloss.

Excellent
Easy to apply and buff up. Excellent finish. Buffed up by hand, but next time I will probably invest in a polishing brush drill attachment to save time.

Excellent wax product
This wax is easy to use - hard work but it's waxing! What would you expect? I use this on the bedroom suite (bed frame, chests of drawers and wardrobes) hand made in Canadian pitch pine "very chunky design" by Nottingham based wood work specialist. With each application of the wax the wood looks better and better!

So so easy to use
After purchasing wax from the retailer where I purchased my furniture I attempted to use and it was absolutely terrible, just couldn't get it to buff to an even shine and it was such hard work. Anyway I looked on the Internet for other wax and came across wood finishings direct, I purchased fiddes clear wax after noticing it was in the sale. Best thing I ever done, it was so so easy to use and what a shine it left on wood. The service from start to finish was excellent, speedy delivery too. Would recommend to anyone!!!

Great Product!
Well impressed with this wax. I gave my reclaimed wood doors two coats even though one would have been fine. They look so good and so different than before.
