Use method

Soak shellac flakes in an at least 95% ethanol solution. After 24 hours the shellac will have been totally absorbed. Filter the mixture to remove any deposits and impurities which may have formed. The shellac will be ready-to-use.The resulting shellac and alcohol solution can be stored for several months in a carefully closed container. Filtering before each new use is recommended.


Approx. 250g of shellac per litre of alcohol.


Store in a cool, dry place in its own container, closed, and away from direct light and heat. The ideal temperature is 15-20°C with humidity under 50%. The product is not cold sensitive but can be damaged by heat.
