Application of Cera F Powder by Ironing

  • Base Pre-Treatment
    Before Cera F is applied, the base is treated with a wax matching the day's conditions, scraped and brushed thoroughly.
  • Apply Cera F
    Distribute the Cera F powder evenly on the base. Apply enough powder to protect the base from direct contact with the iron.
  • Iron In
    Iron the powder into the base with one pass taking about 5 - 6 seconds.
  • Brush
    After cooling to room temperature, brush the powder up from the base with a stiff nylon brush (about 10 strokes). Continue with a horsehair brush (about 10 more strokes).
  • Finish
    Finish with a fine nylon brush (about 3 - 4 strokes).
