Symphony Interior Clear Coat Product Facts
Finish Sheen Options: Satin and Gloss
Coverage: 1st coat: 200-300 sq. ft. per gallon, 2nd coat: 400-500 sq. ft. per gallon (As with all stains and clear coats, coverage will vary depending upon roughness and porosity of the wood.)
Application Temperature Range: Apply when 50˚– 90˚F. The best results are obtained at 60˚– 90˚F. Avoid applying in cold drafts or areas with no overhead roofs.
Interior Wood Moisture Content: Apply Symphony only to wood where the moisture content is 19% or below.
NEW WOOD: If you’ve decided to keep your logs natural looking and only want to apply Symphony to bare wood, the 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 the ultimate smooth finish, sand between coats.
FINISHED WOOD: 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 at 888-208-2248, 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 Interior Clear Coat. Old finishes may need to be mechanically removed if a lighter appearance is desired.
DILUTION/STIRRING: Do not dilute. Stir thoroughly before using. Do not shake as it will cause Symphony to foam.
APPLICATION METHODS: 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.
DRY TIME Symphony Interior Clear Coat will dry to touch in one hour and can be sanded after two hours (when the air is warm & 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.
Clean-Up: Clean fresh material on equipment and hands with soap and water. Spray equipment should be cleaned with water followed by cleaning with paint thinner. Use paint thinner to clean dried material.
Storage: While freeze-thaw stable, it is best to store Symphony Interior Clear Coat at moderate temperatures, between 60˚F and 80˚F. Store Symphony in tightly sealed containers. Cover the pails when not in use.
