Briwax Original Wax Polish
It is a traditional finishing treatment for all types of wood in the home and in the workshop. Briwax is a blend of Beeswax and Carnauba waxes and gives an instant natural sheen to bare wood. It is ideal for use on wood carvings and turned wood, skirting boards and doors, and is widely used in the pine furniture industry.
Safety: Apply in a well ventilated area and wear protective Nitrile disposable gloves.
Preparation: Unsealed wooden surfaces should be dry, smooth and clean. Bare wood should be lightly sanded and the dust removed with a Tack Cloth.
Application: Briwax Original Wax should be applied using stockinette, quality brush or 0000 Steel Wool. Apply the wax along the grain and when dry (5-10 minutes), buff to your desired finish with a clean piece of stockinette or cotton rag. Alternatively use a soft Furniture Brush or Pine Drill Brush for large surface areas.
A professional appearance, improved shine and more durable finish can be obtained by sealing the wood. To achieve this, brush along the grain with Shellac Sanding Sealer before using Briwax Original wax polish.
For pre-finished furniture and antiques, check compatibility, then apply Briwax Original Wax in small areas with a clean soft cloth.
