  2. Remove all traces of dirt, wax, grease, mildew, etc.
  3. Do not apply over varnishes and urethanes.

  5. Remove all sanding dust prior to application

Application Instructions

WoodPlus MicroShield can be applied by brush, sprayer, roller or staining pad. The product requires One or Two Coats. The number of coats will depend on the actual density of the wood substrate. If after applying a first generous coat of the product, you notice that some product is pooling on top of the wood, it indicates that the wood has been completely saturated and will not require a second coat. Simply back brush the areas where pooling has occurred to ensure a uniform finish.
