Frequently asked questions about wood sealant
What is wood sealer?
Wood sealer is designed to plug up any knots or any other imperfections in the surface of wood before applying additional varnishes or waxes. This “seals” the surface of the wood to leave the top coats with a smooth finish and achieve a glossy finish. Applying wood sealer also provides an extra defensive layer to protect against scratches or other signs of wear and tear.
How to apply wood sealer?
Prepare the surface by sanding away any pre-existing finishes and make sure that the surface is free of dirt and dust before applying the sealer. Shake the sealer well then apply a liberal amount to the wood using a brush, cloth, or roller. Leave to soak into the wood for 10-15 minutes then wipe away the excess using a clean, dry cloth.
How long does wood sealer take to dry?
You should aim to apply at least 3 coats of wood sealer, leaving around 5 hours in between coats for sufficient drying. Wipe up any spills immediately to prevent stains or an uneven finish.
