Surface preparation is critical to the outcome and longevity of the surface finish. All surfaces to be coated with Monocel should be clean and dry, free from wax, oil, grease and other contaminants. Fine sand 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.
