    <p class="MsoNormal"><span lang="en-gb" xml:lang="en-gb">Shellac is a resinous secretion of the lac insect and it is the only commercially used natural resin of animal origin. After the crude lac is gathered from the tree, it is crushed and graded and the largest particles are called "Seedlac". This set of small selected natural “golden gems” is simply cold washed to eliminate dust and wood residues and to keep intact the characteristics of the native resin such as the colour and the waxy component. This resin has been recently rediscovered by luthiers who want to give their alcohol varnishes rich and warm shades and at the same time soften their recipes.</span></p> <p></p>

After conducting a series of tests in our luthier laboratories, we were very satisfied with the results obtained. Firstly, we found that the Grinepro sandarac resin is a high-quality product, which comes in a solid and transparent resin form. Its consistency makes it easy to apply to the surface of the objects to be protected, and its ability to harden quickly ensures long-term protection. In addition, the transparency of the resin does not alter the natural color of the wood and preserves its beauty. Secondly, we tested the Grinepro sandarac resin for the preparation of varnishes and lacquers. We found that this product has excellent solubility capacity, which means that it can be easily diluted in solvents such as alcohol or turpentine essence for the creation of high-quality varnishes and lacquers. The resin also contributes to giving a greater shine and protection to varnishes and lacquers, ensuring a durable and resistant finish. Finally, Grandi Liutai greatly appreciated the versatility of the Grinepro sandarac resin. This product can be used not only for the protection of furniture and musical instruments but also for the creation of craft and decorative objects, such as frames or boxes. Its ability to preserve the natural color of the wood and to provide a shiny and resistant finish makes it an essential tool for every craftsman. In conclusion, our evaluation of the <strong>Grinepro sandarac resin</strong> is extremely positive. Its high quality, ease of use, and versatility make it an essential product for every luthier or craftsman. We highly recommend this product to anyone who needs to protect, decorate, or varnish wooden objects.</p>
