Notes on: Aerosols for the Wood Finishers Tool Box

Aerosols make refinishing, finish repair, and smaller finishing jobs easy to do.

We get asked - ‘Why so many clears?’

 CLEAR Aerosol
Sanding Sealers usage guidelines:

Formulated for ease of sanding, these sealers do many tasks even if no sanding is required after the ‘sealing' coat. Sealers are formulated for good adhesion to the substrate or for bonding to previous topcoats. Sealers also act as the ‘glue’ to hold topcoats to the wood far better than if a clear lacquer was used.

Sealers on bare, dyed, or stained wood provide an even ground or foundation for the followiing finish coats.

Use sealers as a transitional or ‘sealing’ coat between dissimilar finishes.

In the Finish room:
a can of master sealer is handy if a small bare area needs sealing and the spray gun is full of toner or topcoat.
