Picture of Chestnut 500ml Burnishing Cream

Chestnut 500ml Burnishing Cream

PACNBC5
This creamy liquid has a very mild abrasive within it which acts like ‘liquid sandpaper’ on finished surfaces, cutting back and cleaning the finish and elevating it to a glossier, brighter finish. It can be used to smooth Cellulose Sanding Sealer prior to applying wax or Friction Polish, or, after allowing a suitable time to dry, on any of the lacquers, Friction Polish, Finishing Oil or Hard Wax Oil. A deep finish can be achieved using Burnishing Cream on a coat of Melamine Lacquer, then a coat of Friction Polish and finally the Burnishing Cream again. Use it sparingly so as not to over lubricate the surface and be sure to shake the bottle before use. It is not advisable to use a lacquer on top of a surface that has had Burnishing Cream used on it.

CHESTNUT 500ML FOOD SAFE FINISH SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 500ml Food Safe Finish

PACNFSF
Food Safe Finish is clear, food-grade mineral oil. We use a thin grade of oil to allow it to soak into bare timber which then protects it against water splashes etc, whilst not tainting or affecting the food in any way. It dries to a fairly matt finish; it is, however, ideal to use for wet sanding and when used with a very fine abrasive it can give an exceptionally smooth surface that has its own gentle glow. Apply with a clean cloth or brush direct onto bare wood, up to three coats are recommended. If the oil sits on the surface and won’t soak in it means the timber has absorbed as much as it can and no further coats are needed. Any surplus can be removed with a clean cloth if required. Depending on the way the item is used it might be necessary to top-up the finish, especially if it is washed regularly.

CHESTNUT 500ML FRICTION POLISH SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 500ml Friction Polish

PACNFP5
Friction Polish is a shellac-based polish ideal for creating a high gloss finish on or off the lathe. It’s a great decorative finish and is ideal for small items but can be difficult to apply to larger items on the lathe (over about 8-inch diameter). The high amount of shellac in Friction Polish does two main things. Firstly it helps seal bare wood and give it a great shine, which is good. Sadly the price of this commodity shot up a few years ago when the shellac crop failed and it never went back down, meaning that the cost of the polish has also risen sharply. Nevertheless, Friction Polish remains one of the most popular finishes for turners. It can be applied to bare wood but is normally used over a sealer and any of the sealers in the Chestnut Products range are suitable for this. Applied with the lathe running it dries almost instantly and builds to a deep, rich shine very quickly. Avoid using too much as this can cause ‘rings’ to appear on the surface. Friction Polish can be applied off the lathe with great success, using it like a French-Polish and rubbing it into the surface. This does require a large amount of elbow grease (sadly not something we supply) but the end result is well worth the effort!

CHESTNUT 500ML FRENCH POLISH SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 500ml French Polish

PACNFRP
Confusingly, French-Polish refers to a range of polishes (which would include Button Polish, White Polish, Garnet Polish etc) and also to a specific polish, French Polish. Our French Polish is a traditional blend of solvent (methylated spirit) and top-quality unbleached shellac which is very similar to a Button Polish in colour. Applied either to bare timber or over a Shellac Sanding Sealer it is built up in many layers which have been described as being the thickness of a cigarette paper! French-Polish gives the rich amber glow found on fine antique furniture and requires a very specific technique for an application that is time-consuming and laborious, but the final effect has to be seen to be believed and the satisfaction of achieving it is its own reward. A French Polish finish is not very hard wearing and is recommended for items that are going to be cared for.

CHESTNUT 500ML HARD WAX OIL SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 500ml Hard Wax Oil

PACNHWO
If you’re looking for a clear finish that is tough, hardwearing and gives a bright gloss yet is still very easy to apply, even on larger areas, you’re in the right place. Hard Wax Oil is a particular blend of tough oils combined with special waxes which dries to an exceptionally resilient finish. Ideal for anything that is going to be subjected to water splashes or a lot of handling this oil may not be indestructible but it will stand up to a lot of abuse. It retains the ease of application typical of an oil and it stays wet long enough to get a smooth, even finish – even on large areas – but is touch dry and tack-free in about 20 minutes, and better yet is ready for a second coat after about four hours (in normal conditions). Hard Wax Oil will build to a bright gloss finish after 2-3 coats. Rub down lightly between coats with a fine abrasive. Once hard dry (allow at least 24 hours) it can be brought to an even brighter shine using either the Buffing Wheel System or Burnishing Cream. For a not-quite-so-bright finish use a mild abrasive to reduce the gloss. For best results lubricate the abrasive with Microcrystalline Wax to retain the toughness of the oil.

CHESTNUT 500ML SHELLAC SANDING SEALER SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 500ml Shellac Sanding Sealer

PACNSSS
Shellac Sanding Sealer is the traditional way of sealing timber prior to applying a polish or a wax. Our version has a high percentage of real shellac which means it does the job extremely well, dissolved in an ethanol solution to make it easy to apply and quick drying. Applied by cloth, brush or spray it dries in about 20 minutes, making it very popular for cabinet and architectural work as it is easy to keep a wet edge running. It is also popular with woodturners and highlights the natural grain of the timber extremely well. Sand back lightly after application and apply Friction Polish, French-Polish or any of our waxes on top. Conforms to EN71 Part 3 – suitable for toys and nursery furniture.

CHESTNUT 500ML TUNG OIL SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 500ml Tung Oil

PACNTO5
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 depending 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.
