Minwax® Performance Series Fast-Dry Sanding Sealer

For an extremely smooth finish that builds to partially fill the grain, apply a coat of Minwax Performance Series Fast-Dry Sanding Sealer between the stain and the varnish. Just 1 hour after application, it sands quickly and easily to a fine powder, delivering great results with minimal time and effort. This sanding sealer builds even faster than two coats of varnish and is more forgiving of applicaiton inconsistencies - even if it drips or sags, it quickly sands out.

  • Sands fast, easy and effectively in 1 hour
