Shellac Barrier Seal for Floors

Shellac Barrier Seal is a quick drying ‘primer’ for all wooden floors, new and old, and is ideal for use under water-based lacquers. Shellac Barrier Seal may also be used as a sealer coat on floors which are just going to be waxed to give a low
traffic coating. It acts as a sealer on re-sanded old floors,
preventing any oil or wax contamination affecting Mylac
water-based lacquer used as finishing coats. Shellac
Barrier Seal adds extra depth and life when used under
waterbased coatings on new and old floors.

Its name indicates, it is based on Shellac resin dissolved in Alcohol solvents similar to French Polishes. It is better than a water-based primer/sealer coat as it does not raise the grain of the timber and consequently gives a fuller, flatter looking finish when overcoated with water-based lacquers.
