New Wood
Sand smooth using fine sandpaper and vacuum any sanding dust.* Wipe it clean with a tack cloth or a cloth dampened with paint thinner or mineral spirits, and allow it to dry. If open-grained woods are to be filled, use a filler that does not contain stearates or waxes, such as ZAR® Patch Wood Filler or ZAR® Trowelable Wood Patch.

Old Finishes in Good Condition
Remove all dirt, oil, wax, polish, and grease with turpentine or a suitable solvent.* Sand lightly in the direction of the grain to remove gloss. Wipe it clean with a tack cloth or a cloth dampened with paint thinner or mineral spirits, and allow it to dry.

Old Finishes in Poor Condition, Lacquer or Shellac
Remove completely.* Clean sanding dust with a tack cloth or a cloth dampened with mineral spirits to remove any remnants of dust prior to application and allow it to dry. If the old finish contains wax or stearates, regardless of condition, remove it completely. Sand and remove sanding dust. Test ZAR® Interior Oil Base Poly PRO in an inconspicuous area for compatibility.


Stir thoroughly before and during application. Do not shake! Apply straight from the can. Do not thin. May be applied using a brush, pads, a lambswool applicator or by spray. Apply ZAR® Interior Oil Base Poly PRO in the direction of the grain. Sand lightly between coats. Remove all sanding dust with a vacuum or tack cloth. If more than 24 hours elapses between coats, sand thoroughly and clean. Allow the first coat to dry for up to 2 hours, and succeeding coats for up to 2 hours. Temperature, humidity and film thickness may affect drying time. If, while sanding, sandpaper gums or the surface feels tacky, extend the drying times.


Dispose of contaminated absorbent, container and unused contents in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

A: Sanding is not required, but if desired a light scuff with 220 grit sandpaper can help to promote intercoat adhesion.
