SURFACE PREPARATION: All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from dirt, wax, grease, glue and other contaminants or adhesion will be affected. Wood surfaces must be sanded smooth and sanding dust removed. Wood that has been stained or finished should dry completely (24 hours) before application of Gel Polyurethane. WARNING! If you scrape, sand or remove old paint, you may release lead dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. EXPOSURE TO LEAD DUST CAN CAUSE SERIOUS ILLNESS, SUCH AS BRAIN DAMAGE, ESPECIALLY IN CHILDREN. PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD ALSO AVOID EXPOSURE. Wear a NIOSH approved respirator to control lead exposure. Clean up carefully with a HEPA vacuum and a wet mop. Before you start, find out how to protect yourself and your family by contacting the National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead.

Remove excess polyurethane quickly with a clean cloth, then buff lightly and briskly with another clean cloth, working in the direction of the grain until the surface is smooth with a slight wet look. Continue to apply and buff until entire project is coated. Gel Polyurethane will dry to touch in 5 to 6 hours. Allow at least 6 hours between coats. Reapply. Two to three coats are recommended; however, additional coats will enhance build and provide greater protection. Sanding between coats is not necessary.
