Stir 2018 Clear Sealer before application. 2018 Clear Sealer may be applied by brush, conventional or airless spray. Thinning is not normally required although on very warm days use Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner at 5-10% by volume to ease brushing and maintain good flow. When spraying, use Pettit 121 Spraying Thinner up to 20% by volume. Spray an even, wet coat to minimize orange peel. Do not apply 2018 Clear Sealer on extremely humid days or when rain is threatening. Do not apply in the late afternoon when working outdoors as the wet film may be adversely affected by dew. On fir or any wood that has a large hard grain pattern wipe with dry rags while the sealer is wet to remove the excess from the hard grain areas. 2018 Clear Sealer is not completely absorbed into the hard grain.
Wood must be clean, dry and properly prepared prior to varnishing or painting. When sanding wood, always sand with the grain. Use a vacuum, air hose, or tack rag to remove all traces of sanding residue. Follow all surface preparation steps carefully, avoiding shortcuts. Inadequate surface preparation will virtually assure inadequate performance.
