CHESTNUT 250ML YELLOW SPIRIT STAIN SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 250ml Yellow Spirit Stain

PACSYL2
An exciting and vibrant set of colours for staining wood, Spirit Stains are methanol based to make them quick-drying and because of this they also will not raise the grain of the timber they are applied to. The pigments used to make these stains are of the highest quality and all score the top ratings of 7s and 8s in the Blue Wool Scale, the measuring system used to rate fade resistance. This means you can use them with confidence knowing that the colour you apply will still be the same many years later. Spirit Stains are fully inter-mixable so you can produce virtually any colour you can think of, giving you full opportunity to be as creative as you wish. The colours will also mix after application so you can blend from one colour to another for fantastic ‘flare’ effects. Spirit Stain White is designed primarily as a mixer to create pastel shades when mixed with other Spirit Stain colours. It can be used to stain timber but as it is a translucent stain this can have a limited effect depending on the base colour of the timber used. Should you want a more subtle colour you can dilute the stains with Spirit Thinners for a delicate wash effect.

It’s also suitable for use in making french polish if you want to dissolve shellac flakes in it.

CHESTNUT 225ML LIMING WAX SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 225ml Liming Wax

PACNLW2
The white pigment in Liming Wax is Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) which gives it a brilliant white finish that will perfectly highlight the open grain. Use Liming Wax on any open-grained timber for a dramatic and striking effect which can be emphasised by using a stain or Ebonising Lacquer first. For an even better result use the Liming Brush first to open up the grain, allowing more Liming Wax to enter; spread the Liming Wax over the whole surface and then wipe off after a few minutes. The Liming Wax will stay in the open grain and the effect will be instantly visible. Whilst Liming Wax is a wax (obviously!), the wax is mainly a carrier for the white pigment. Therefore an overcoat of some kind is needed. WoodWax 22, Microcrystalline Wax, Finishing Oil or Hard Wax Oil are ideal for this and will lock the wax in place whilst keeping it clean and bright.

CHESTNUT 225ML MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 225ml Microcrystalline Wax

PACNMW2
Chestnut Products’ Microcrystalline Wax is a blend of high quality waxes rich in microcrystalline wax – a wax derived from the petroleum refining process and known for the fineness of its crystals. This is mixed with a special solvent to create a firm wax which, when dry, knits down to form a very dense coating making it very water-resistant, meaning that it is ideal for any items that are likely to come into contact with water for short periods of time. Microcrystalline waxes also have a higher melting point than other waxes traditionally used to make polishing waxes, the benefit of which is that repeated handling of items finished in Microcrystalline Wax won’t fingermark in the same way, as the melting point is higher than normal body temperature. Microcrystalline Wax should be used over one of the Chestnut Products’ sanding sealers and allowed to dry (about 20 minutes) before buffing to a shine. For best results apply a very thin coat, spreading the wax evenly over the entire surface. Microcrystalline Wax can also be used on the Buffing Wheel System. In this situation use the A and B Wheel as normal, then apply the Microcrystalline Wax to the item you are polishing. Allow 20 minutes for the wax to dry then buff and normal using the C Wheel. You can use the same C Wheel for both Microcrystalline Wax and the Carnauba Wax Stick. Microcrystalline Wax has been tested to the EN71 Part 3 regulations regarding coatings used on toys, you can download a copy of the certificate here if you need it.

CHESTNUT 400ML WOOD WAX 22 SOUTH AFRICA

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.

CHESTNUT 400ML EBONISING LACQUER SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 400ml Ebonising Lacquer

PACNEL4
Ebonising Lacquer is a tough, hard-wearing water-based lacquer. It is heavily pigmented so that when it is dry it emulates the classic satin look of ebony. Usually applied over a sanding sealer (either Cellulose Sanding Sealer or Acrylic Sanding Sealer aerosol) it is touch dry in about five minutes and hard dry after twenty minutes. Although heavily pigmented it is not painted and will still allow the grain of the timber to show through, rather than obliterating it completely. Liming Wax and Gilt Cream can be applied over Ebonising Lacquer to give a pleasing, eye-catching yet very simple artistic effect. If a bright gloss finish is required from Ebonising Lacquer this is best achieved by using Burnishing Cream on the lacquer with will polish it up to a high gloss. Acrylic Gloss Lacquer can also be applied on top of Ebonising Lacquer, as can WoodWax 22 and Microcrystalline Wax

Chestnut Woodturners Stick Wax South Africa

Chestnut Woodturners Stick Wax

PACNWSW
Designed for Woodturners, this stick wax is specially shaped to allow it to be applied to pretty much any shape of the item! A mixture of beeswax and carnauba wax is slightly softer than the Carnauba Wax Stick and therefore slightly easier to apply and there are no concerns about it marking softer woods. Applied over a sanding sealer, simply hold the stick against the revolving work and allow the heat generated to melt the wax onto the wood. Buff up straight away using Safety Cloth, using the cloth to ensure an even coating.

CHESTNUT CARAUBA WAX STICK SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut Carnauba Wax Stick

PACSCWS
This is a solid block of carnauba wax, popular with woodturners. It gives a bright gloss finish and is also very hard-wearing, able to withstand a medium amount of handling without showing finger marks. Apply over a sanding sealer by holding it against your work as it revolves on the lathe. Do not press too much – the wax is very hard and can scratch softer woods – the idea is to generate enough heat for the wax to melt slightly and transfer onto the wood. (This is easier than it sounds!). Use sparingly, and use the polishing process (using Safety Cloth) to ensure the wax is spread evenly. Buffing will produce a high gloss finish.

CHESTNUT 1LTR END SEAL SOUTH AFRICA

Chestnut 1ltr End Seal

PACNES1
End Seal is an emulsified paraffin wax used the seal the ends of freshly cut timber to slow down the drying process and reduce the risk of timber splitting. It can also be used on work-in-progress that is being left unfinished where there is a risk of the timber splitting. Apply it liberally, normally by brush but it can be sprayed if needed, usually to the smallest surface of the timber which will normally be the end grain where moisture is most likely to escape from. Sealing the surface will encourage the moisture to escape via the larger areas which will result in a slower exit.
