FURNITURE WAX POLISH

”WHAT

  • Moisturises the surface
  • Protects the timber surface from environmental elements.
  • to help stop the timber from drying out.
  • Enhances the patina (lustre) of a timber surface.
  • Prevents dust and dirt from clogging the pores of timber.

How does Aussie Furniture Wax work?

The wax leaves a thin film on the surface, which over time is drawn into the timber and acts as a filter to control the amount of moisture entering and leaving the timber. This helps to prevent cracking and drying out.

Does Aussie Furniture Wax change the timber in any way?

The Furniture Wax will only enhance the grain and help the surface mature over time. The finish will last longer and the surface will be more resistant to normal wear and tear. The Black Furniture Wax the Staining Wax and the Brown Furniture Wax can change the colour of the timber furniture surface. (Always test in an inconspicuous area first)

What is the difference between Aussie Furniture Wax and Aussie Quick Polish?

The Furniture Wax has a thick consistency and is an excellent base wax for high traffic areas where there is continuous use e.g. tabletops, sideboards and coffee tables. The Furniture Wax has more resistance to heat and cold, and better repelling properties for spillage. Recommended to be applied every three to six months.

Quick Polish is exactly what it says quick and easy to use.  Suitable for use on heavily carved timbers, rattan (cane) furniture. Effortlessly removes hand grime, dirt, tobacco stains etc, and does not fill up any detailed carvings. Can be used for the removal of glue backing of labels placed on to a timber surface. Use regularly. Simply wipe on and buff off.

How long does the Aussie Furniture Wax last?

Climatic conditions and the amount of wear the surface is subjected to, can only determine the life of the wax.  As a rule of thumb use Furniture Wax every 3-6 Months and Quick Polish every week or as often as you like.

Will Aussie Furniture Wax wear off?

Yes, the wax will wear off to a certain extent and a certain amount of wax will be drawn in to the timber surface. That’s why it is necessary to apply the product on a regular basis.
