How to Apply Watco Satin Finishing Wax
Allow any previously applied oil or stain on wood surface to dry 72 hours before applying WatcoSatin Wax for Finishing.
For unfinished bare wood surfaces, sand using 150-220 grit sandpaper and remove all sanding dust with a vacuum or a rag dampened with mineral spirits. If a filler or putty is used, make sure it does not contain wax and allow for enough time to dry thoroughly.
Use only when air (ambient) temperature is between 60-90°F (16-32°C) and relative humidity is below 85%. Allow for longer dry times during damp and humid conditions. Mix material thoroughly before application. Stir occasionally during use. Spread a thin, even coat of Watco Satin Wax with a clean cloth. Wait 10 minutes, wipe clean and dry. Polish with a soft cloth.
