Preserving Satin Finish - 08-07-2019, 08:20 AM

What’s the best way to keep this satin finish, but remove the stickiness and dullness it feels/shows? Again, I want to preserve the satiny look, not make it glossy. This is a rare TAD and I want to avoid messing it up.

Tung Oil?

TIA

If it has an old lacquer finish, that could be difficult, if the lacquer has been exposed to plasticizers (cheap vinyl case, or wrapped in plastic for a period for some reason, e.g.) or simply degraded.

Naptha won't cut any cured finish that i know of, but is excellent on grease & oils.

Ethyl alcohol ("denatured" alcohol) is a little more aggressive to finish & less to grease and oils, but won't cut lacquer or any modern finishes. It will immediately damage an old french polish (shellac).

If the lacquer has started to soften, it will take a lot of slow cleaning to *maybe????* bring it back. Getting the gunk off (technical term) will remove some of the plasticizing effects, but won't cure it, pun intended, immediately. Maybe or maybe not long term.

Any solvent - try/test in small area and wait, first.
Good luck.

Would a mild furniture polish work? Regardless spot test any product used.

SW uses gun stock oil for their satin.
I don't know about TAD.
But, gun stock oil spray can lays thin and I shouldn't hurt.

How about light coats of hand rubbed Tru-Oil?
