• Klear Polish for Transfer/Decal Application - 30ml Bottle

Details

A 30ml bottle of a product known as Klear Floor varnish or Future polish. The product is a hard wearing acrylic varnish that, although marketed as floor polish has remarkable properties for the application of model decals/transfers. The original product, marketed by Johnsons has not been available in the UK for some years in its original formula. This listing is for the original formula US product imported and repackaged in sensible quantities for modellers.

Applying decals to models can run into problems with regard to several factors:

  • The paint surface on which they are applied – matt surfaces are pitted at the microscopic level. This can lead to bubbles forming under the decal.
  • The edges of the carrier can be clearly visible once applied
  • Post application coating with various varnishes may damage the decals. Some varnishes react very badly with decals and have at times effectively destroyed them and at best produced a crazy paving effect across the surface.
Future addresses these issues by producing a smooth sealant to paint layers for either matt or gloss. Application of the transfer can then be made as normal. After the transfer has dried a further thin coat will protect the transfer and again, when dry, can be varnished as required.

The listing is for a 30ml bottle which, although small, will last for many months when used for decal application.

Full application instructions are supplied with each purchase.
