Beside this, when should I use sanding sealer?
A sanding sealer can be used on bare, unstained floors, doors, furniture and cabinets prior to applying either an oil-based or a water-based clear finish. It is designed as a base coat that will dry quickly, seal the pores, and sand easily with fine sandpaper to create an ultra-smooth foundation.
can sanding sealer be used as a finish? A "sanding sealer" is a drying finish, either lacquer, shellac, or varnish, that has something added to it to make it easier to sand and not ball up in the sandpaper, a built-in lubricant if you will. Varnish is no longer used because it takes to long to dry. You can make your own by adding Talcum Powder to the finish.
One may also ask, do I have to sand after applying sanding sealer?
Sanding sealer is only applied as a base coat and should be lightly sanded after drying to remove any fuzz and minor finish imperfections. Use fine sandpaper, at least 200 grit, and do not sand through the sealer. If you do sand through the sealer, reapply sealer and lightly sand again.
How long does it take sealer to dry on wood?
Stains and Drying Times Some thick stains, which penetrate the wood and form a seal, are dry on the top in a matter of hours. In general, for a penetrative stain, allow one to two days drying time, and then test. Alternatively, thinner, non-penetrative stains can take weeks to fully dry against the wood.
