The natural woodfinishing treatment for all types of wood, in the home and in the workshop for all wood craftsmen.
A blend of Beeswax and Carnauba waxes to give an instant natural sheen to bare wood or over Sanding Sealer. Ideal for wood carvings and turned wood, for floors and skirtings. Briwax cleans and protects wood, tiles, metalwork, marble and melamine etc. Available in clear, which maintains the natural colour of the wood, and other wood shades to stain and wax in one operation. Briwax is extensively used in the pine furniture industry. Available in Briwax and Briwax Original. Apply with 0000 steel wool, Briwax brushes or cloth.
Timber should be sanded and free of dust and grease. If you wish to dye the wood, this must be done before applying Briwax Original.
For most timbers Briwax Original is applied directly onto the raw or dyed timber. Apply using 0000 steel wool. Use a small amount of wax, working along the grain until you have covered the entire surface. Allow to dry for 2-3 minutes, then buff the desired gloss with a soft cloth. If you are using sawn pine or other similar timbers, you should note that the end grain and rough cut areas of the grain will pick up more wax, and appear darker than the surrounding timber. Ensure that you sand these areas with extra effort before staining or waxing. For intricate areas apply Briwax Original with a hand or drill brush and polish with a soft brush. For a higher gloss apply a second application as before.
Antiques & Other Furniture:
Apply a small amount to a test area to ensure compatibility with existing finish. Apply Briwax Original with a slightly coarse cloth to ensure an even coat, buff as soon as dry. Polish occasionally using a soft cloth; if shine appears to be fading apply a little more wax.
If the wax finish becomes damaged or marked, it is usually possible to touch up a small area using Briwax Original and 0000 steel wool. Remove damage with steel wool and then gently apply the wax to the damaged area, then polish up when dry.
As Briwax Original is a natural wax and contains no silicone or other artificial surfactants, it is not recommended for use in areas where it will be directly subjected to moisture, heat or constant water spillages.
Always test the product on an inconspicuous when applying.
