U Beaut Traditional Wax Neutral 250ml
Product Code: 09-117
Traditional Wax is a general purpose wax paste made from a unique blend of animal, vegetable and mineral waxes including Carnauba (the hardest of all waxes) for a hard bright shine and durability, Ozocerite and Ceresin (high melt waxes) for extra hardness, shine and water resistance, Microcrystalline for added water resistance, a hint of beeswax for smoothness and the clean fresh fragrance of Herbal Pine.
All of the waxes used in the production of Traditional Wax are used in the food, confectionary or pharmaceutical industries, which means the product is child and food safe.
Traditional Wax is unlike any other beeswax. polishes you have ever used. It is not sticky or hard to work with, and unlike most other beeswax type polishes it will not attract dust or finger marks.
Traditional Wax is easy to apply easy to buff to a shine and leaves the surface of the work with an almost sensual feel. This polish does not give a wet plastic look to the timber but imparts a lustrous and slightly dry l16.5oking shine to the work akin to that of a fine antique.
Traditional Wax is about the consistency of margarine making it easy to use in a variety of ways, including on raw timber, antiques, woodcarvings, woodturning, general furniture maintenance etc.
METHODS OF USE
Always prepare timber by sanding well before applying a finish. You should sand with grits up to 320 or even 400. If you put in the preparation you will get a first class finish every time. If not you will get what you deserve.
RAW TIMBER 1
Prepare the surface, then apply a thin even coat of wax using a clean, soft, dry cloth, wait approx. 5 minutes until dry, then buff to a bright lustre using another soft, clean cloth.
RAW TIMBER 2
Brush on 2 to 3 thin coats of shellac or 2 coats of sanding sealer. Allow to dry, then sand lightly with 400 grit abrasive. Now apply a thin even coat of Traditional Wax using 000 or 0000 steel wool as the applicator. Buff immediately with a clean soft cloth.
If the timber is open-pored, e.g. oak, etc. apply wax as follows: After preparing as above buff the surface with dry steel wool then apply Traditional Wax with a cloth instead of steel wool. Otherwise a white mark (or flecking) will be seen in the open pores of the timber after waxing. This is caused by the steel wool cutting the polish then depositing it in these open pores.
Further applications of wax can be made if needed but should be applied with a clean rag instead of steel wool. Follow directions as for Raw Timber No. 1 above.
FOR ANTIQUE RESTORERS
Use Traditional Wax as you would any other paste wax. You will find however that this wax should have a better shine than most and will be much easier to use.
Apply Traditional Wax sparingly to the work using a boot brush, tooth brush or a soft bristled nail brush. Pay particular attention to undercuts etc.
Allow to dry 10 minutes then buff to a lustrous finish using a soft, lint free cloth or a clean soft bristles brush. A double sided boot brush is ideal for this work. Brushes wash clean in turpentine or hot soapy water.
World renowned woodturner Richard Raffan, author of books, videos and magazine articles on woodturning, uses and recommends Traditional Wax.
Use Traditional Wax on your woodturnings for a lustrous finish.

2/ Apply liberally with lathe spinning allow to dry. (approx. 5 mins) Buff with a clean soft rag.
3/ Apply a base coat of shellac to the work then sand with a fine abrasive and use wax as above.
