FAQ

There are primarily four kinds of polish finish.

  1. French polish: This is the oldest and traditional form of polish. This polish is made of lacquer, resins and solvent, mixed by hand and applied by hand. It gives a traditional smooth finish and can be stained in different wood colours (yellow, rosewood, teak brown etc). Since this the traditional form of polish and applied by hand and labour oriented, it is the most economical form of polish for wood. French polish is semi gloss by nature.
  2. Melamyne polish: This is a superior polish finish polish which comes in ready to use packs and is mostly applied by spraying on various wood surfaces. This polish is more durable, more water resistant than French polish. It comes in matte and gloss finishes.
  3. Polyutherane polish: This is also a superior polish finish which is sprayed. It comes in ready to use packs and can be stained in different wood colours. It gives the best finish in terms of look, feel and durability. It comes in gloss and matte finishes
  4. Monocoat: Monocoat is a single coat highly durable polish finish for wooden surfaces. By nature, it has a matte finish. Very durable and resists all kinds of stains caused during everyday use.

Polish can be applied on all kinds of wood surfaces or variants of wood like Veneer sheets. Furniture, wooden flooring, wooden ply can all be polished. Polish cannot be applied on laminates, MDF sheets or metal surfaces. Shera ply, a substitute for wooden panels can also be polished.

It depends on the kind of wooden finish. As a general rule, people prefer to apply more durable, higher polish finishes to wooden surface that is more durable. Eg: People prefer to apply polyutherane (p.U) polish to expensive veneer. For normal mouldings, ply, wooden furniture, French polish or melamine polish.

Polish can be done in limited colours. The colour choices in polish are not as exhaustive as paint. Usually polish colours are done to match the wooden surface, hence wooden stained colours are the most widely used.

All surfaces that need polishing require two basic processes repeated over and over again depending on the finish desired.

The processes are as follows:

  • Sanding: All wooden surfaces, old or new require sanding to be done. Sanding is done to smoothen the surface imperfections and the polish finish subsequently.
  • Polish Application: Polish application is done repeatedly in most kinds of products. French polish is applied repeatedly by cloth on the wooden surface till an even finish is obtained.

Melamyne and Pu polish is sprayed in successive coats over the wooden surface till the desired wooden finish is obtained.

In case of Monocoat, extensive sanding is done before applying the one coat polish finish

Dents, pin holes, screw marks are sanded and filled with an all purpose wood filler, before applying polish. The wood filler is also stained usually in the same colour as the polish which is to be applied, so that the filling underneath the polish is not visible.

Applying a coat of lacquer will make the dull furniture come to life. Lacquer can be applied by brush or by spray. Polishing would be required if you want to change the existing polish colour of the furniture.

That would depend on the quantity of furniture in the flat and the kind of polishing required. Usually a heavily furnished flat having lots of wooden surfaces would take around 7-8 days.

Polish is generally quick drying and does not have a lingering smell as paint does and certainly not for as long a duration as paint. However due to solvents and resins, it does have a strong smell which lasts for about a day.

Melamine and PU polish should not be ideally done after painting of the wall is finished. We advise our clients to get the polishing completed and we cover the polished surfaces suing covers and then paint the walls. The residue of the polish while being sprayed can stick onto the walls and ceilings and can make the finished painted walls look bad. French Polish or Monocoat, which are applied by hand can be done after painting work.

Any kind of polish can be done while one is living.

PU, Melamine and Monocoat polish can withstand most of the stains, like water stains, tea stains and wax drops.

French polish can also withstand some stains, but not as well as the other three kinds of polish finish/
