Ever wished you had a finish that was as easy to use as shellac but with the durability of polyurethane? Well wish no more, because here it is.

This unique Hardened Shellac creates a film that will withstand heat, water and alcohol, yet it is used in exactly the same was as any normal shellac. It can be applied with a rubber as French polish, brushed, sprayed and dipped.

HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?
After shellac has been dissolved in ethanol it is possible to introduce additives that cause the shellac to cross link after it has dried. This cross linking takes about 20 days to completely cure, less in hot weather. This time can be reduced by 2½ days for every 10 degrees increase in temperature, say under a light or in front of a heater.

This makes this polish the ideal finish for table tops and other horizontal surfaces such as dresser and desk tops, etc.

APPLICATION.

Hard Shellac is applied in the same manner as any normal shellac. The drying time is the same as regular shellac. ie: almost instantly.

It is suggested that the first coat onto raw timber be a coat of regular unhardened shellac, and that all subsequent coats be done in Hard Shellac.

ALL application gear must be washed IMMEDIATELY after use.
If rubber, brush or spray equipment is left to dry it will go rock hard and become unusable.


Wash up and thin with Ethanol (also known as - 100% Industrial Methylated Spirits or 100% IMS) available at most good hardware and paint shops.
