Symphony Interior Clear Coat - Gloss 5 Gallon
Enhances the natural grain, provides a hard smooth surface so cleaning is easier.
If you've decided to keep your logs natural looking and only want to apply Symphony to bare wood, best results are obtained if you sand the wood to a smooth finish with fine sandpaper. Be certain to remove all dust before finishing. Do not use steel wool; it may cause rust stains. For a smoother finish, sand between coats.
Compatibility is a huge issue, so logs that already have some type of stain or sealer on them will need to be tested for compatibility; call us and we will talk you through the testing procedure. For best adhesion to non-Sashco coatings, it is usually best to lightly sand the surface before applying Symphony. Old finishes may need to be mechanically removed if a lighter appearance is desired.
Do not dilute. Stir thoroughly before using. Do not shake as this will cause foaming.
Brush or spray on two or more coats. More coats will impart a higher sheen. If brushing, use a high-quality synthetic bristle brush. Back brushing after spraying will enhance penetration into the wood surface. Brush material in the direction of the grain. Do not over-brush (bubbles can form). Sand between coats for a smoother finish.
Symphony will dry to touch in one hour and can be sanded after two hours (when the air is warm and dry). Recoating can be done after 1-2 hours. Allow wood that will be handled to dry overnight. Actual dry time depends on thickness of coats, temperature and humidity.
