It's the Natural Wax!
Wood Floors - Wood Paneling - Wood Doors - Kitchen Cabinets
Inherent cleaning agents in BRIWAX dissolve built up wax, dirt, oil and lift it up into the applicator, where it is wiped away. The rougher the abrasive you use the more of the surface you will remove. BRIWAX dissolves itself, no wax build up.
BRIWAX has the ability to seal a wood surface against physical abuse and normal spills and stains. BRIWAX seals against the scratching of wood floors. BRIWAX is compatible with most finishes both old and new.
On a pre - sealed surface, BRIWAX colors become a decorator's personal touch. The sealed surface keeps BRIWAX on top where each application of a different color of BRIWAX will change your furniture to blend better with your surroundings. Just like the chameleon.
BRIWAX gives a hard, durable, hand-rubbed luster, that appears to glow from within. BRIWAX is the ideal polish for all types of wood surfaces. Never builds up.
BRIWAX traps the moisture from white water rings where you wipe them away with fresh BRIWAX. Crayon art work as well as felt tip marker pens usually do not penetrate the BRIWAX protection.
A BRIWAX SURFACE REDUCES SUBSEQUENT MAINTENANCE 50%
It has been demonstrated, through extensive field testing, (5 years at Six Flags Over Texas and 5 years at the Governor's Mansion in Austin, Texas) that a BRIWAX surface withstands wear and tear, spills and stains.
How long between applications depends entirely upon the amount of traffic that particular surface gets within a given period of time. (An end table, dresser bureau is not going to get the same amount of traffic a kitchen table takes. Sometimes with small children, every 2 months is necessary on the kitchen table.)
The next time you are cleaning your home..., all you have to do is take a soft clean cloth, lightly buffing the surface to bring back that natural luster of BRIWAX. Dust will not adhere to the BRIWAX surface. Oil finishes attract dust, wax does not not - this is a property of the chemistry of the two substances.
The shine will buff back time and time again. As you notice -(remember, I said, depending on the amount of traffic that surface is exposed to...) as you begin to notice the luster having difficulty coming back, then just take your cloth, pat it to the BRIWAX as you would a compact and renew that surface back again.
BRIWAX may be used on wood floors for a beautiful luster that resists scratching and never yellows. Apply sparingly with a cloth or scrub brush to a 24 x 24 area. Allow to dry 10 - 60 minutes. With a clean lint free cloth, buff to a rich shine.
An electric buffer, either small home model or commercial rental type may be used to save time. If an electric buffer is selected, apply a golf ball size amount of BRIWAX directly under the buffer. Working an area 4' x 7', move the buffer quickly over the area to spread the BRIWAX to a even coat. Now go back over the same area more slowly to work the BRIWAX into the surface, picking up any dirt and begin to show a slight luster.
BRIWAX should be applied carefully with a soft cloth, using small amounts. Pat the cloth to the BRIWAX as you would a ladies compact. This is enough BRIWAX to cover an area the size of a dinner plate. Apply with a side-to-side wrist motion, this results In a more uniform coating. wipe away any excess wax and allow to dry 3 minutes.
Buff with a clean lint free cloth to bring out the natural luster of a BRIWAX finish. Turn the cloth repeatedly to always present a clean portion to the working area.
Scuffs, stubborn spots or problem areas may be addressed with a white nylon scrubber pad. Finish with the cloth application as before.
Lightly apply BRIWAX with 0000 (fine) oil free steel wool with a side-to-side wrist motion, to remove just the top layer of old dried finish. This will allow you to save what is still left of the original finish. It will take some, but the results are worth it.
Rejuvenating kitchen cabinets is easy with BRIWAX. You can clean away the dark sticky build-up, cover over nicks and scratches, and remove watermarks in one application.
Apply BRIWAX, in the appropriate color, using a white nylon scrubber pad or 0000 (fine) oil free steel wool to a dinner plate size area, wipe away the excess wax, Let dry a few minutes, and buff with a clean lint free cloth.
A wooden handle scrub brush can be used as you would use for polishing shoes. Stubborn spots or marks can be corrected with a white nylon scrubber pad or 0000 (extra fine) oil free steel wool.
On large wood surfaces such as wall paneling, floors, cabinets, etc., it is recommended to use a scrub brush. The application procedure is the same as with the other types of applicators. Utilizing a scrub brush you will be able to cover a larger area quick and more efficiently. Scrub brushes are available in both natural bristle and plastic bristle. Both are especially effective as applicators, however, you should be cautioned that some plastic bristles will react chemically to the petroleum distillate in BRIWAX and melt the plastic. Scrub brushes, also, have a unique application use as they are able to get the BRIWAX into and then out of corners, carvings and other hard-to-get-at places.
Mechanical applicators have become a decided benefit to man as they are able to effectively perform a job over a large area in very little time. Commercial buffers have progressed to the point that they are able to reduce labor significantly. When applying BRIWAX with a mechanical applicator care should be taken in the selection of the application material itself. Whether you decide to use a synthetic pad, polishing brush or steel wool will depend entire upon the surface you are going to work on. Through experience we have found that the mechanical application of BRIWAX to a floor can only be done with a low-speed buffer (175 R.P.M.) with a polishing brush attached. Evaluations were done using high speed buffers and/or synthetic pads. The results demonstrate that too much heat from friction was being generated and was causing the BRIWAX to burnish and become slippery, steel wool has been used successfully on wood floors that have become extremely deteriorated from dirt and no maintenance. In these situations it is likely that the protective varnish has been worn away and as a result the BRIWAX is being absorbed by the wood and will not cause slippage. As the job proceeds you will observe a build up of BRIWAX in the bristles of the brush. This is easily corrected by flicking the bristles with a screwdriver and knocking the wax loose and reusing the brush again and again. Hand held mechanical applicators can be affixed with a brush and are extremely effective in maintaining wood paneling and cabinetry. The 1/4 inch drill with a buffing pad attached is excellent for final buffing of BRIWAX. Again you will observe the build up of BRIWAX in the pad, remove the pad and wash in hot water to make it reusable again.
