- The HOT Weather additive.
Slows Shellac Drying, helps to eliminate brush marks, promotes a smooth surface,
and minimizes orange-peel or over-spray when spraying. 
When the shellac is drying too fast due to heat, low humidity, or excessive airflow,
add just enough shellac retarder to enable easy application and flow-out.
 Especially helpful in hot dry conditions or when air flow or drafts causes overly fast drying.
       Quart Bottle  ••• NOT for use with Lacquers.

SEEDLAC is the least processed shellac. All other shellacs are made from this raw seedlac resin. The insect feeds on the sap of the tree and secretes the Lac as a protective shell in which the female lay their eggs.
Seedlac is made from the branches that are covered by the Lac resin left by the lac bug, known as sticklac.
The sticklac is crushed to yield the seedlac.  The Seedlac is sieved to remove organic materials, washed and dried in open air.

BUTTON Shellac has toughness and mar resistance that makes it the preferred shellac for finishing floors, interior woodwork and French polishing musical instruments.

Waxy Shellac: Wax content provides some flexibility & moisture resistance.
'Waxy' shellacs are a good choice when the finish will be shellac only.

Use a DEWAXED Shellac for a universal sealer / primer and as a transitional coating between dissimilar finishes. Use a Dewaxed Shellac when the topcoat, for extra water & alcohol resistance, will be a varnish, lacquer or urethane.
