Specifications and Important Details

If applying to previously finished wood, sand surface to remove old coatings before applying new finish. If sanding the entire surface is not desired, sand areas of distress that can cause flaking. This allows blending of edges.Vacuum dust and wipe with a water-dampened cloth.

 

Application

1. Stir well prior to use. Apply full strength with brush, floor pad or t-bar. Thinning may result in reduced performance.

2. Test the finish on a sample piece of wood to confirm compatibility and desired appearance. For best results apply in temps between 65F-80F with a relative humidity of 40%-60%. Avoid applying in direct sunlight Three coats are recommended for optimum product performance.

3. Apply thin, even coats taking care to prevent the finish from forming puddles. Overlap strokes and always maintain a wet edge. Finish will dry in two hours under normal conditions. High humidity or low temperature may lengthen dry time.

4. Sand lightly after first coat with very fine sandpaper (220 grit or finer).

5. Vacuum dust and wipe with a water-dampened cloth and Vermont Natural Coatings Wood Cleaner. Never use steel wool or a tack cloth.

6. Apply second coat.

7. After second coat sand only if 24 hours have passed since the previous coat was applied. Sanding, vacuuming and cleaning between coats will aid adhesion and create a smoother surface.

Excellent product- excellent service!

We had used this fabulous product previously and find it difficult to find the matte variation. So grateful we found Rise! Shipping is fast- communication great. The product is a dream to use- and since we have used it before we know it holds it beauty and strength. You can apply it with any brush or sponge brush-we have used it on both rough and smooth boards- on both raw or stained wood- it does a beautiful job on any application.
