Fiddes Supreme Wood Wax Polish contains only the finest Beeswax, Carnuba Wax and Candelilla Wax making it the ideal choice for restoring the character and sheen of furniture and wooden surfaces.
Easy to apply with a sponge, cloth or brush and ideal for difficult moulded areas or flat surfaces including flooring and furniture. Medium coats dry within 10 minutes. Toluene Free.
Please note: Fiddes call their Clear wax 'Light'.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Drying times may vary depending on room temperature, humidity and the type of wood being waxed. Recommended drying time for a thin coat of Fiddes Supreme Wax Polish is around 5 minutes with thicker coats taking up to 15 minutes.
We have used this product to wax all our pine furniture and find it ages to give a lovely soft colour without the need for reapplication.
Great quality product & lovely to use - a little certainly goes a long way. Will be looking for other things to treat with this stuff!
Honestly, this product is fantastic! New softwood floorboards (builders merchants) were layed in my newly extended Victorian dining room. This stripped pine wax totally transformed them and much to my surprise, gave a close match to the original pine floorboards. The ease of application and buffing up with a soft cloth far outweighs the use of varnishes, which I previously used. This was a fully functioning floor within a matter of a couple of hours. Beware though, it leaves a waxed floor so is slippy in socks...but my kids love that! Coverage is excellent, I bought 2x 5ltr tins and only used 1/4 of one tin (1 coat over 28m squared). I will apply a 2nd coat but it is absolutely fine with just one coat. I don't think you could be disappointed!!
Enhances stained floors to a lovely wearing sheen. Buffs easily and lifts the residue. Thanks
Very easy to apply, it gives a nice finished sheen and not much elbow grease is needed
High quality product
Has really brought out the natural markings of the wood. Applied it to new skirtings which have finished the room off perfectly. Will definitely use this product instead of wood stain in future.
Good consistency, very easy to use with a truly pleasing result. Will certainly use again.
Easy to use product - gives a lovely finish to the wood. Best to use a buffing brush to get a nice shine.
Nice colour, easy to apply and gives an even finish
I've been using this product for the past 4 years , it never fails to give depth and lustre to all the craft projects I have made .
Having tried the wax it did not give my oak plinth and fire surround quite the finish I was looking for, because I was hoping to the figure to be better enhanced. Danish oil is much better for this, but darkens the wood more. However the Fiddes seemed a very good product and I will use it on my pine doors.
Needed something to give a clear finish on bare wood and this did the job excellently without darkening the wood at all. You simply apply it with one cloth, wait a few minutes to dry then polish off with another. Job done.
Easy to apply on our doors and polishes up very nice
Guess who has a lovely shiny table? And without barely any effort. The shine is amazing -and appears so quickly. No endless buffing, just a smear of polish and hey presto a lovely shine. Amazing.
makes your furniture come up like new, easily applied. fast and efficient delivery, defo use again!
Easy to order, prompt delivery, excellent product very easy to use
This wax is so easy to use. Goes on well, gives a superb finish. Easy to buff to the desired shine. Brings out the grain of the wood beautifully. I've used other products in the past for my doors but the fiddes will always be the one I use from now on. So pleased with the result. Can't praise it enough!
Easy to use. Lovely finish
Went on easily, easily buffed to a good finish
