The benefits of shellac (French polish) over other timber coatings

A main benefit of shellac is its ability to ‘melt’ into the previous layer. This creates a single layer finish on your final result, the single layer is a superior clear finish that allows the natural tones of the timber to shine though, very few timber protective coatings have this ability and can offer the same clarity.


Why choose Restorers Choice Shellac?

Shellac is an organic material and must be stored below 14 degrees to ensure the product stays fresh and usable. Shellac purchased from hardware stores often sits on shelves for months, facing harsh summer temperatures, decreasing shelf life, and causing issues when dissolving and drying.

All Restores Choice shellac is stored in temperature-controlled containers when shipped from India, kept at 8 degrees or below in our storage facility, and shipped in heat protective foil all the way to your door. The extra length we go sets us apart from your average hardware store, guaranteeing a quality product.
