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.

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.

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.

  • Flammable: Contains White Spirit.
  • Keep away from sources of ignition: No Smoking.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • In case of contact with eyes rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
  • Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.
  • Storage: Keep container tightly closed and store in a well-ventilated area.

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.

Excellent product and easy to use by Harry Spears

This wax was used on a new oak stair. It was easy to use at room temperature and with a little bit of elbow grease and four or five coats it produced a lovely finish. Can definitely recommend this for new wood.

Easy to apply and no colour change to the wood by Lisa Auton

Very easy to apply (used on our white oak staircase) with a soft cloth we were keen not to colour the wood in any way, this product is perfect. We didn't require a high sheen, one coat was perfect with a light buff, although I understand a second coat would encourage a higher sheen if required. One coat enhanced the grain and when (using a test piece of oak) splashed with water created a seal so that the liquid sat on the surface. We have enough in the tub to apply second and possibly third coats over time if required. *our stair case is oak base, hand rail and 4 x newel, inserts are glass which is how we have so much left.
