Plastic coating & hardener gloss 250ml
The surface must be clean, smooth, dry and free from wax, dust and contaminants.
Small holes and cracks may be filled with Rustins Grainfiller or Z-poxy.
Bare wood may be dyed before coating however test on a piece of scrap wood for compatibility as there are so many types of dye.
Do not apply Sanding Sealer!
Mix 1 part Hardener to 4 parts Coating by the required volume.
Once mixed, it may be used for up to two days, if covered and kept cool.
250ml of mixed product is sufficient for 3,25-3,75 sq.m. per coat and should be sufficient for 1 guitar.
Use a brush, roller or lambs wool pad and apply evenly and liberally, finishing in the direction of the grain.
Two coats are usually sufficient on hardwood.
Softwoods and cork may require a minimum of 3 coats, depending on the absorbency of wood.
Generally touch-dry within 30 minutes–1 hour, depending on the temperature and humidity.
Leave 1 hour between coats.
Once fully dried sand gently with high grit sanding paper and polish to the desired gloss with burnishing cream or wax.
Worn or damaged areas can be recoated by cleaning and sanding the spot and reapply the Plastic coating.
