Platina shellac


Platina Shellac

Platina shellac flakes are nearly colourless de-waxed shellac used to replicate classical polishing formulations for antique furniture and musical instruments like guitar and pianos. Also known as Ultra Blonde shellac, de-waxed Platina shellac is also used to enhance faded wood, finish curly, quilted and figured woods. It is lighter than Super Blonde Shellac.

Guaranteed Quality when you buy from us. Our Shellac is stored in temperature controlled and dust free cool-rooms to maintain freshness, quality and shelf life.

Colour: Extra Light (<6 on the Gardner scale)

Shellac needs to be stored in a cool environment and out of sunlight. Once dissolved in 100% denatured alcohol(DAA), it needs to be used within 6 months for best results.

We stock the Shines Shellac Hardener to make shellac finish heat, moisture and alcohol resistant. This is the most popular and possibly the only shellac hardener used by renowned luthiers.
