Polyester UV-Cure Grain Sealer
Reactive (high-solids) finishes cure by chemical reaction and require less build-up (coats) to fill open grain woods. They have less shrinkage than solvent-borne or water-borne "evaporatives" - those that cure by drying. One problem in applying reactives to oily woods is that the natural oils in the woods interfere with the curing of the reactive finishes. Shellac is often used to seal the grains on oily woods but this takes a fair amount of time. Solarez UV-cure grain filler and sealer reacts not by evaporation but by photochemical reaction and does so in seconds, not hours.

I used this product on both the hull and deck of a plywood paddle ski I just completed. The deck is so firm after 2 coats I will probably only fiberglass the hull now.
I would get up early and apply a coat and then wait for the surise as I was working under a carport.
Pretty awesome stuff!

I'm still getting my moves down with the sealer but my initial impression is that it is a very good product. It is very thin and brushes on and squeegees off easily. It sands easily too which is always a good thing. My testing with this product so far is limited to mahogany and walnut and I've had good results so far with multiple coats to fill the deep pores. Because this stuff cures rapidly under UV light you can apply about 5 coats in the time it takes for one coat of paste filler to dry enough to be recoated. That means you can take a mahogany guitar body from raw to high gloss in about 3 hours. Crazy stuff.
