Not often seen these days but a wonderful product in certain situations. Its waterproof, will prevent moisture entering end grain, colour is brown.

If you have timber to protect then this is surely a wonderful product. Wooden Boat Magazine the USA Mag has done a feature on Shellac, Feb 2008 and how the Herreshoff boats, many which were double planked were so treated and after 70 to 80 years there is NO ROT !! U.S. Dept of Agriculture calculate that three coats of Shellac are 87% effective against the movement of water vapour into or out of wood, compared with 73% for varnish and 21% for Linseed Oil. Shellac effectiveness as a moisture barrier as well as its resistance to oil make it excellent as a sealer.Shellac dries in minutes. Yet another wonderful, cheap Traditional product.
