Manns Trade Shellac Sanding Sealer is perfect as a stand alone Shellac sealer or as a basecoat for French Polish and other waxes. Suitable for a wide range of applications prior to finishing, its appearance is creamy in the container but dries clear on the surface.
Please Note: This product should not be used in high quality polishing operations, as the sanding agent in this Shellac wood finish can affect the adhesion and clarity of the final film.
Manns Shellac Sanding Sealer is just one of the products we look at in our blog post about wood varnishes.
Ensure that the surface to be sealed is clean, dry and free from dirt, dust, grease or any other surface contaminants.
Softwood surfaces can be stained prior to sealing with Manns Classic Pine Stain or, Manns Classic Oak Stain for Oak and other hardwoods. If a solvent-based stain is preferred, use Manns Trade Light Fast Wood Stain.
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times. Shake well before use. This product can be thinned down with methylated spirits if required to get the desired consistency.
Once fully dry, Manns Trade Shellac Sanding Sealer can be overcoated with a suitable french polish or wax.
