Surface Preparation

Ensure the surface to be thinned is sound and free from any surface contamination (e.g. wax, grease, oil, powdery deposits etc.) by wiping with a cloth dampened with methylated spirit. Surfaces which have been previously wax polished must be degreased prior to sanding.


  • Ensure the product is thoroughly shaken prior to use.
  • Apply using a 'rubber' which is made by wrapping a pad of cotton wool in a lint free cloth.
  • Soak the rubber with polish, squeezing out any excess.
  • Lubricate the rubber with a drop of linseed oil then work it over the entire surface of the wood in circular, overlapping loops.
  • Refill and lubricate the rubber as it dries and go over the entire surface again.
  • Allow to dry overnight.
  • Abrade any raised wood fibres with very fine grade sand paper, then apply more coats as required, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly.
  • Lastly, fill the rubber with polish thinned with methylated spirit, squeeze until nearly dry then go over the whole surface once more.
  • When fully dry, burnish to a high gloss with a pad contaning a little methylated spirit.
  • Clean Up

Take extra care as application cloths and soiled cleaning rags may self ignite without warning. Lay cloths out flat in single layers to dry, or wash out thoroughly in warm soapy water before washing with methylated spirit.

Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.
