IMPORTANT NOTES:
Over applied sealer left to dry on the surface can be removed with the application of a little more sealer, which should then be buffed immediately to remove the excess. If left for too long then removal can be achieved using LTP Power Stripper in which case surfaces will need to be re-treated.This information is offered without guarantee.  The material should be used so as to take account of the local conditions and the surfaces to be treated.  In case of doubt, the products should be tried out in an inconspicuous area before general application.
