Ease of application
FX Soap Wax and FX Liquid Wax are ideal for adding further creative effects to FX Stucco, FX Marmorino and FX Travertino® coatings, and protecting these finishes.
Before applying any FX wax product over base FX Stucco, FX Marmorino or FX Travertino® coat, ensure the surface is free of dirt and dust. There should be no grease or stains. Any efflorescence or mould should have been treated beforehand at the initial preparation stages before applying FX Stucco Undercoat. See appropriate FX Product Information Sheets.
FX SOAP WAX (NATURAL)
Place a small amount of wax (the size of a twenty-cent coin) onto the centre of a stainless-steel trowel. Move trowel over the surface leaving a fine film of wax on the surface. Then go back over the area with a clean trowel, removing any unwanted or excess wax, and burnishing the surface. Work one square metre area at a time. Once satisfied that the area is waxed correctly, allow to dry completely. Then polish with a clean white rag or lamb's wool buffer.
Alternatively, FX Soap Wax may be applied as per the instructions for FX Liquid Wax. See information below.
FX LIQUID WAX (NATURAL)
Place a small amount of FX Liquid Wax onto a clean white rag. Apply product in a circular motion. As the liquid wax penetrates the surface, continue to buff with the razor alternatively, wait until the wax is completely dry then polish with a lamb's wool buffer.
