Shellawax 500ml

Regular Postage
SHELLAWAX is now being manufactured using our own specially formulated
Hard Shellac as a base which give a harder, more durable finish, infinitely more resistant
to marks and blemishes from water, alcohol and heat. 
The hardener in the polish is activated by the heat generated
during the application of the Shellawax.
As soon as the surface is dry (almost instantly) a cross-linking
begins in the finish. It is this cross-linking process which
creates the harder surface. It takes around 3 weeks for the entire process
to complete. However, in the mean time the work can be handled and used
without fear of upsetting the process. Just keep it away from alcohol,
water, etc during this time.
This new formula Shellawax is a foolproof, one application, friction polish, made for use on the wood
lathe. It is (to our knowledge) the fastest and easiest to use polish of ifs kind on the market today,
giving an instant shine to all timbers. It is used with the lathe running
and under heat, created through friction, it is fused into the timber. It
dries instantly, and can be handled immediately after application. It is
water resistant from the start and becomes more resistant to water, alcohol,
etc, over a 3 week period after initial application.
