Polish Paste Wax
jar with wadded lid
5 litre tin with carry handle
Ultra Shine is a cut and
polish paste wax containing Tripoli powder (also known in Australia as Rotten Stone) an ultra
fine abrasive. The polish is designed to be used in conjunction with Shellawax Cream &
liquid or as a finish in its own right on plastics and some stone.
It can also be used by French
Polishers after polishing and restorers to cut & polish old polished surfaces.
finishes will also be greatly enhanced by using EEE - Ultra Shine to finish the finish.
These include Organ Oil, Danish oil, polyurethane, nitrocellulose lacquer, French polish,
spirit varnish, spa vanish, etc.
EEE - Ultra
Shine has the unique ability of breaking down the grit size as you use it however instead of becoming blunt like most other abrasives it continues to cut which takes your finish to a higher and higher shine as you continue to work. For woodturners it also has the ability of removing sanding marks from most timbers and can greatly reduce
your sanding time whilst giving you a far better finished surface than you have ever had
before. A blemish free surface pre-polished and ready to apply your finish to.
If you sand to
240 grit then use EEE it will give you about the equivalent of sanding with 2,000+ grit or
more. The higher grit abrasive paper you use before using EEE the better your finish will
be. If you sand to 1200 - 1500 grit and then use EEE you will get about the equivalent of sanding
up to somewhere between 20,000 & 30,000 grit depending on the material you are working on ant the length of time you are prepared to put into the application (rubbing)..
In pretty well
all cases what you will be left with is a surface that shows no sanding marks and is ready
to have Shellawax or Shellawax Cream applied to it as a final finish which is
to knock your eyes out.
If you use either
of our Shellawaxes and are amazed at the finish you get with them, prepare yourself to be
astounded. This finish is nothing short of miraculous.
If you are
striving for perfection in the look of your finish? This is it.
are not striving for perfection in the look of your finish. This will give it to you anyway.
If you are
of spending hours on a finish that is at the best mediocre then try this,
combine it with
Shellawax on your woodturning and you will never look back.
WOODTURNERS REQUIRING THE ULTIMATE FINISH
ON RAW TIMBER:
turned item to a minimum of 400 grit abrasive (for fine turned items you may wish to sand
up too 1200 grit or more). Stop the lathe & apply an even coat of EEE - Ultra
Shine with a clean soft rag.
Turn the lathe on and work the wax
over the surface with the rag as you would work the surface with an abrasive paper.
Finally, with the lathe still
running buff off the remaining wax and abrasive grit with a clean piece of soft cloth then
apply Shellawax or Shellawax Cream.

VELVET DECORA & OTHER PLASTICS:
- Ultra Shine can be used as the sole
finish. Sand with 240 to 400 grit wet and dry abrasive paper using water as a lubricant
then apply EEE - Ultra Shine as above working the polish over the surface
until the desired effect is obtained. You should have a brilliant blemish free shine on
On pens etc. made with crushed
velvet or any of the other plastic type finishes
EEE - Ultra Shine
& right: These pieces of Decora were given a very quick sand with 180 grit
abrasive then finished with EEE - Ultra Shine even when closely inspected with a
magnifying glass there are no sanding marks visible.
EEE - Ultra
Shine can also be used after the application of Shellawax to finely cut the
surface giving a brilliant dry shine. Used over Organ Oil, Danish oil, polyurethane and
lacquered surfacer as a final finish EEE - Ultra Shine will give the same
brilliant dry shine rather than that wet looking shine that many finishes get.
- Ultra Shine is used with brilliant results on Jadewood (Mineral Talc stone).
Wether being used in the lathe or polished by hand the result is nothing short of
spectacular. If the stone is then finished with Shellawax Cream and then cut again with
the EEE the finish is even more brilliant and also well protected.

No other stones have
been tested yet but it is possible that this will work well on many others.
Use EEE -
Ultra Shine as a final finish over a polished surface to enhance the finish and
remove or at least hide (blend in) slight surface imperfections.
Allow the French
polished surface to harden approximately 2 days, then apply the wax to the
surface using a clean soft cloth and rubbing with the grain of the timber.
Buff off with another clean soft rag turning regularly to remove the grit.
Finally Polish over the entire
surface using our Polish Reviver this will
remove the last traces of grit and give the surface a brilliant glow.
Combine EEE Ultra Shine with
Polish Reviver for brilliant results on old French polished & lacquered surfaces.

MEANT AS A GUIDE ONLY. YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND MANY, MANY MORE USES FOR THIS PRODUCT.
We have had reports of it
working brilliantly in various metals, bone, shells, Tugua nuts, a variety of polished and
painted surfaces and even as a cut and polish on a car (We do not recommend it as a cut
and polish for cars but it does work).
note for EEE on raw timber
Shine is not a finish for raw wood.
When EEE is used on a lathe on raw timber it produces a brilliant shine. Do not be
fooled into leaving the wood like this. It is the timber shining from
the super fine abrading. There is little to no finish on the wood.
this the timber will dull in a short period of time from moisture in the
air, steam, humidity, handeling, etc. This is because the timber is
basically still raw. If it gets wet it will dull off instantly.
Please use a finish over the top preferably one of the Shellawaxes, which
are 100% compatible with the EEE. You can also use our Traditional Wax or our Shithot Waxtik or any other wax over it. However because the wax in EEE is so tenacious it is possible that it may stop any other finish from adhering to the surface. So, if you intend using another finish EEE do
a test piece first to make sure it will work. This may well avoid some tears
and gnashing of teeth down the track.
take note of the following
THIS IS A WAX.
WAX MELTS IN EXTREME HEAT
SO KEEP IT COOL!
To fix melted EEE: Put
container in hot water to melt contents, when melted stir with non
metal stirrer until mix begins to cool & thicken otherwise the abrasive may
drop out of the mix.
To rejuvenate hard EEE: Do the same as above but, add a small
amount of mineral turpentine.
(for half a jar add 1 tablespoon, if really dry add 2 tablespoons
too much will just make it runny)
leave rag inside jar.
