Behlen Self Sealing Master Gel Top Coat
This product is currently unavailable.
Master Gel Top Coat is a blended urethane finish that provides very good resistance to water and alcohol, making it suitable for a variety of uses. It is self-sealing (no first sealer coat is required) and virtually colorless when dry. It has superb leveling properties, so you get a smooth, even finish. It is easy to apply, and so foolproof, it makes an excellent choice for finishing ":in the field". Master Gel dries to tack in 20 minutes and is hard enough to sand and recoat in 1 hour. (This item cannot be shipped by air service.)

NOTE: Due to impending laws on air quality control and other health concerns, these items have been restricted from shipping to California.

  • Nearly Foolproof and an Added Bonus

    Stewart, 3/16/2016 I have a small one-man woodworking shop.
    I have to say that I love this stuff! I know there is no such thing as a "foolproof finish". However, this has got to be just about the closest thing to one. Use a soft cloth to wipe it on, the use the dry part of the cloth to wipe off any excess. Let it dry 3-4 hours give it a light scuff with a 320 grit sanding sponge. Repeat the procedure for a second coat, then wait a good 4 hours. Give the whole project a light buffing with "good" 0000 steel wool (I recommend the Liberon brand) then remove any dust and steel fibers with a tack or microfiber cloth. Apply a final coat and wipe a little cleaner than the first 2 times. Once dry it should require nothing except maybe a nice voat of a good paste wax. Easy!
    Even better is that, being a gel, it is thicker and does not soak in as much as other finishes. I recently built a Redwood Burl Demilune Ttabl. I had never worked with redwood before so I fid a lot of tests to discover how I wanted to finish the project. Well everything I tried darkened the redwood far more than I wanted it. Until, that is, I tried Behlen Master Gel. Since it didn't soak in very much, it didn't significantly darken the wood and obscure the beautiful figure of the burl. I jighly recommend this product, and suggest that you add it to your fine finishing arsenal.
  • My Favorite Finish

    Michael Ratcliff, 12/17/2013 I make custom walking sticks and canes and I have tried a lot of different finishes. Behlen Master Gel is one of the most durable I have tried. I also like that I don't have to worry about runs.
