Description

Stop-out Varnish prevents covered parts to be etched in the acid or in ferric chloride solution.

Ingredients:

bitumen, rosin and turpentine.


Use in well ventilated room only.

Application:

Use a soft brush to cover the areas You want to protect. Methylated spirits or paint thinner may be added to make the stop ground more fluent.
