Briwax Shellac Sanding Sealer is a high quality sealer produced using natural and traditional materials which have been used since the middle of the 19th century.

It is a fine quality natural sealer blended from bleached waxy grade shellac.

Briwax Sanding Sealer provides a good base which gives a high build and a more resilient finish to French polish and wax. Briwax Sanding Sealer is excellent for filling the pores of whatever you apply it to.

It is excellent as a base for French polishing or waxing untreated wood.

Briwax Sanding Sealer is the ideal sealer for use under Briwax Original wax polish to produce a higher shine which does not sink away. It also allows bare wood to be waxed with the darker colours and will avoid 'tide' marks which can often appear when over-lapping when waxing.

Please see our Briwax section for the full product range and our Shellac Sealers and Polishes section for alternative products stocked.

Customer Comment:

Not very impressed with this product. Yes, it makes sanding a bit easier but was otherwise completely unnecessary - in fact I found the Briwax polish went on more evenly when I didn't first use sanding sealer. An expensive gimmick.

On 22-Jun-2016 the supplier responded:
Hello Mrs Marshall,
Thank you for your feedback.
We are sorry to hear of the problems you have experienced with the Briwax Sanding Sealer.
The procedure of first filling the grain of the wood or sealing a stain with a sanding sealer is a standard 'Trade' practice.
This should enable the wax to be applied quickly and evenly, and ultimately give a better finish.
We are pleased to hear you have achieved a good depth of colour after three coats; your wood should be protected for a long time to come.
Best regards,
