WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
APPLICATION FOR WOOD SURFACES
- Use on bare wood or over itself; wood should be cleaned all of dirt, grease, wax, polish, marks and old finishes in poor condition.
- Sand wood or previous finishes in good condition to a smooth surface using 100–120 grit sandpaper. Additional sanding of previous finishes with finer grit sandpaper will create a smoother finish. Remove sanding dust with a vacuum or tack cloth.
- If desired, apply Minwax® Performance Series Tintable Wood Stain or Minwax® Fast-Dry Varnish Sanding Sealer following label directions.
- Be sure the temperature is above 50ºF and the humidity is below 85%, otherwise a hazing of the film may result.
- Protect surrounding items with drop cloths.
- Stir finish thoroughly and occasionally during use.
- Apply without thinning using brush, pad or spray. Avoid excessive brushing, which will cause bubbles to be trapped in the film.
- Allow to dry 3 hours before applying a second coat.
- If light scuff sanding is needed between coats to remove dust or raised grain wood texture, allow 4 hours drying before sanding. Use 180 grit sandpaper or finer. Although not as effective as sandpaper, steel wool and synthetic abrasive pads may be used for very light sanding. If aggressive sanding is required, allow the varnish to dry overnight. Remove sanding dust with a vacuum or tack cloth.
- After the last coat of varnish is applied, wait 4–6 hours before using the varnished item. Surfaces subjected to wear should be allowed to dry for 12–16 hours before returning to use.
- Not for use on surfaces continuously wet or under water.
- Not for use on floors or other hard wear areas.
- Use mineral spirits or paint thinner, following manufacturer’s safety instructions.
