Surface preparation is critical to the outcome and longevity of the surface finish. All surfaces to be coated with Monocel Varnish should be clean and dry, free from wax, oil, grease and other contaminants. Fine sanding with 240-grit sandpaper, rounding off all sharp edges and corners, then thoroughly dust prior to application. A tack rag is recommended for dusting.
All previous paint, varnish, shellac or lacquer must be totally removed and stripped back to bare timber before coating with Monocel Varnish. If the surface has been previously coated with Monocel Clear Timber Varnish, the surface should be sanded back lightly removing and lifted or cracked film and thoroughly cleaned before recoating.
Ensure adequate ventilation during use.
ALWAYS test the product on a small inconspicuous area or off-cuts first to ensure the product does not react adversely with surface and ensure the product is suitable for your specific requirements.
Shake the can for one full minute after you hear the pellet rattling.
Adjust the fan jet as necessary – keeping the can vertical (see illustration). Keep the can approx. 25cm from the surface at all times while spraying.
Spray with slow, even strokes, beginning and ending each stroke beyond the surface being coated.
Do not apply if temperature is below 10 ºC or if rain is expected within 24 hours.
The first application is a sealer coat. Leave this coat to dry for 4 hours, fill any imperfections and then leave to dry fully for 24 hours before applying further coats
