Shellac Flakes

Natural high gloss traditional wood finish and tannin-blocker.

Lemon shellac contains 4-5% of wax; TN Gold shellac 2-3%

De-waxed Orange, Ruby, Garnet and Platina contains <0,2% of wax; offer better transparency, enhanced hardness and moisture resistance, indicated for the manufacture of string instruments; gives better adhesion and superior compatibility between varnishes and resins, ideal as tough primer, good release agent and sealer for all porous surfaces; de-waxed shellac is harder and needs 72H to dilute; heated mixture will dilute better and faster.

To dissolve shellac we suggest purest alcohol possible at least 96º ethanol, better 99,9% methanol or isopropanol; 200-250gr to 1Liter. To improve properties of the final varnish increase gloss, ease polish, we suggest add 5% of benzoin gum; addition of 10% of sandarac gum will increase hardness of varnish, also added to produce traditional shellac sanding sealer; 10% of butanol as a retarder added to extend working time. Color can be adjusted with alcohol-based anilines
