Behlen's high grade solvent for shellac and alcohol based stains.
Behkol has several important roles in the guitar shop:
- Mix Behkol™ with our ColorTone Liquid Stains, for colors that won't raise the wood grain.
- It's the solvent for shellac flakes, and works with mineral oil and shellac for traditional French polishing.
- It's alcohol lamp fuel, for melting lacquer touchup sticks and heating a disassembly knife.
- It's a great degreaser for metal parts and cleans oil from new tools, too.
