  • 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.

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.

 400ml, Light - Clear
Good product - Easy to apply
Goes on nicely over a coat of stain without making the base colour any darker than the original or just by itself.

Prompt delivery, no problems.
This wax finish was recommended as the best for some rustic finish yellow pine book shelves, as being easy to apply, good depth of colour and easy to maintain. Previously made items look great with this wax finish. The price from WFD was significantly less than the previous supplier, and even better, delivered to where it was needed without delay on the day the timber was due to arrive. Only snag, the timber suppliers let us down and not just once... Makes a change to have the finishing product ready and waiting to be used before the job is even started!

 400ml, Jacobean
Superb product that gave excellent results.
This product was easy to apply with the stockinet the cloth that was purchased as well. Each coat of wax I applied was easily buffed to a shine and I achieved the shade of colour I required after four applications of the wax. I ordered a 400 ml tin and I have plenty left. I applied the product to a stair bannister and protected the painted spindles using a well known masking tape ( comes in a yellow container) and the wax did not damage the paint work in any way. Excellent product which I fully endorse.

 400ml, Stripped Pine
Easy to use and transforms old pine.
Fiddes stripped pine adds warmth and character to old pine. We have used on doors, cabinets, dressers and stair newels throughout our house. Very easy to use and makes our amateur DIY look like it was done by a profession.

 400ml, Light - Clear
Perfect clear wax - easy to use.
Perfect for rewaxing our kitchen table and lightly waxing an unsealed bedframe from Ikea. It has virtually no colour - if you wanted to darken a light wood you'd do better with a darker staining wax. Excellent price and efficient delivery.
