How to use this product
Stir contents thoroughly before and during use with a broad, flat stirrer using an upward action. This disperses the mattifying agent that may settle out. Can be applied with a brush, short napped roller, sprayer or damp sponge.
Damp Sponge Applicator Method: Using a lightly dampened applicator apply the sealer rubbing in to the surface and then finishing in long even stokes along the grain. This method will not leave brush or roller marks.
Important note: Apply one coat only over dark colours and instant rust. A second coat may leave a milky finish.
* To prevent tannin bleed in heavy tannin timbers such as mahogany, teak, rosewood and some oaks it is recommended that the surface is sealed with a shellac based sealer such as Zinsser BIN.
