CHESTNUT 500ML TUNG OIL

CHESTNUT 500ML TUNG OIL

R545,00 incl VAT
In need of a hard wearing, natural, solvent and additive free finish? You’ve come to the right page. Tung Oil, or Chinese Wood Oil as it’s sometimes called, is a natural oil derived from the seed of the nut of the tung tree. The jury is out as to whether it can spark a nut allergy. Tung Oil air dries to form a tough, hard film that has a fairly strong amber tint. Because it doesn’t have any solvent or driers in it it can take a while to dry, and dependant on conditions this can be up to a week although 48 hours is more common. As with most finishes a thinner coat will dry quicker.# Normally applied with a brush or cloth.

CHESTNUT 500ML CELLULOSE SANDING SEALER

PACNCSS
Good finishing requires a good foundation, and Cellulose Sanding Sealer is probably the best way of providing one. Compatible with everything in the Chestnut Products range that benefits from the use of a sanding sealer (which is pretty much everything apart from oil finishes!) it is superbly universal. The purpose of a sanding sealer is manifold. It seals the open pores of the timber prior to the application of the next coat, meaning that more of it stays on the surface and less of the finish is needed. Not only does this make it economical, when finishing the thinner the applied coat the less likely it is to get damaged, so a sanding sealer will help the top coats be more resilient. Sanding Sealers also bind the loose fibres of the timber together giving a more solid foundation for the next coat, which helps make sure the final finish is able to adhere properly and thus be more durable. They also include a sanding agent which acts as a lubricant to make the sanding process easier – the sanding agent also stands slightly proud of the surface of the sealer and it is this that is denibbed – the sealer itself should still be intact after sanding. Cellulose Sanding Sealer is very quick drying, usually touch dry in 30 seconds and ready to be sanded within five minutes, making it ideal for a quick, easy yet professional base for your finishing.

TMT SLOW CASTING RESIN Our two-part slow casting epoxy is the perfect product for River tables, crack filling, chopping boards, breadboards, jewellery and so much more. What makes this product so amazing is that it is UV stable. It allows you to pour high thicknesses without colour change when pigments are added. You are able to obtain high clarity, good brightness and colourless. It has excellent impact resistance and thermal shock. Sets at room temperature and is almost odourless. It also does not get hot when mixed. Important to remember that it is slightly blush in thickness. I always recommend that you use the release agent in all moulds.

We also have metal powder fillers like copper, brass, zinc and then best of all glow in the dark Blue and Green powders. Mixing ratio 100g / 42g so a digital scale is required.

CHESTNUT 400ML WOOD WAX 22

PACNMW4
WoodWax 22 contains beeswax (for shine) and carnauba wax (for hardness). Blended together in a solvent to produce a soft creamy paste. This makes it very easy to apply over any surface. WoodWax 22 is quick drying enough to be applied onto unsealed wood but works best on one of our sanding sealers. If working on the lathe the wax should be applied with the lathe stopped. Apply using a cloth (Safety Cloth or Stockinette works well with this); the wax spreads easily over the surface, after about 20 seconds it starts to drag slightly. This means it is ready to buff up; if you haven’t covered the whole piece by then don’t worry, just take a little more wax from the tin and carry on applying, the wax won’t mind waiting! It’s best to buff WoodWax 22 as soon as you can; that way any surplus wax that might have been applied will be removed, allowing the shine to really show through. If working on the lathe Safety Cloth should be used for the buffing process and let the lathe do the work for you. Off the lathe Safety Cloth or Stockinette can be used. A second or even third coat of wax can be applied if required, leaving about twenty minutes between coats. After three coats the finish can become softer and will mark very easily. WoodWax 22 is available in Clear, Golden Brown, Medium Brown and Mellow Brown.
