General Finishes Gel Topcoat has been designed to provide a beautiful, hand-rubbed finish which is ideal for furniture, crafts, and woodworking projects. Made from the highest quality oils and resins, General Finishes Gel Topcoat offers a finish as resistant as polyurethane, which is completely non-toxic after curing (not recommended for cutting boards, butcher block or any surface that one might cut food upon).

Available as a gel, which allows for greater control, General Finishes Gel Topcoat is easy to apply and to wipe with a rag, which prevents splashing, drips, or runs. This finishing gel can be used to protect stained surfaces. Even though General Finishes Gel Stains contain urethane, they can be coated with Gel topcoat to greatly improve their protection.

Direction for Use

Preparation

Sand raw wood with 120-150 grit sandpaper. Allow stain surface to dry overnight before
applying this product.

Application

  • Apply liberal amounts of Gel Topcoat with a clean cloth (old t-shirts work well). For large flat surfaces a foam brush or paint pad applicator works best.
  • Wipe off excess evenly with the grain. Leave enough finish on the surface to give the wood a “wet look”. Make sure to wipe out any smudges or rag marks. For best results allow to dry overnight.
  • Buff lightly between coats using #320-400 grit paper or super fine sanding pad.
  • Minimum 2-3 coats recommended.

Good drying conditions 6-8 hours. Cold or damp conditions, up to 24 hours.
