Shellac Flakes

Shellac is 100% natural. Shellac is 100% non toxic and FDA approved. Shellac is a kind of non-toxic natural gum resin dissolves in a wide variety of alkaline or rapidly drying alcoholic solvents but is resistant to a number of other solvents particularly hydrocarbons. The low thermal conductivity and a small coefficient of expansion cause shellac to lead to a powerful bonding material.

Shellac is perfect for antique restoration, furniture refinishing, casework, architectural woodwork, toys and general woodworking.

Shellac is widely used in the cosmetic, drug and food industry. It is the only finish that should be used on children’s furniture due to its non toxicity!

Shellac is processed and sold as dry flakes and dissolved in ethanol to make liquid shellac, which is used as a brush-on colorant, food glaze and wood finish. Shellac functions as a tough natural primer, sanding sealant, tannin-blocker, odour-blocker, stain, and high-gloss varnish.
