Solvents are an amazing way to get a smooth finish on your piece, and this is the best solvent to use on Cx5 and Cx5s because it is quick acting, leaves a clean non-sticky surface on your piece, and is non-toxic and non-irritating to skin. It replaces harmful alternatives like naphtha, while being incredibly effective at smoothing the surface of any Cx5 or Cx5s piece.
Using Safe-Smooth in conjunction with 3M Sanding Sponges is a great way to smooth out large areas of your sculpture, or fine-tune the smallest, hardest to reach areas. Apply solvent directly to the sculpture or a sanding sponge using the sprayer nozzle, and sand down the surface of your sculpture. Use a lint free paper towel to wipe away the material that the solvent sanding has lifted off the piece.
Warning: Safe-Smooth is a solvent, and as a general rule solvents are flammable, so do not expose it to direct flame. When using sanding sponges, do not use the same exact same sponge for both solvent sanding and hot-sanding! Keep them separate.
Spray a small amount of Safe-Smooth on a soft cloth and buff a smoothed section of your Cx5 or Cx5s sculpture to yield a glass-like finish.
Safe-Smooth is derived from non-toxic and naturally occurring components. As with all art materials or cleaning supplies, please keep out of the reach of children, and do not ingest. Do not spray over open flame - a fine mist can combust when in direct contact with flame. Do not cover 3M Sanding Sponges with Safe-Smooth and then expose them to direct flame.

For domestic orders you can choose between USPS and FedEx rates, unless your order is over 70lbs and must be shipped FedEx or freight. You will receive an e-mail with a tracking number when your order ships.
For international orders you can also choose between USPS and FedEx rates, unless your order is over 70lbs and must be shipped FedEx or freight. ADVISORY TO INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: FedEx always provides reliable tracking, but the only USPS shipping option with reliable tracking outside of the United States is Priority Mail Express. You will not be able to reliably track USPS budget services like standard Priority Mail or First-Class Mail once your package leaves the United States, and Adam Beane Industries, Inc. cannot be responsible for packages lost overseas. We strongly advise FedEx or Priority Mail Express for international orders. Note: USPS Priority Mail Express is NOT currently available for shipments to Russia, Singapore or the Ukraine. We apologize for the inconvenience.
We are able to ship to U.S. Military APO/FPO addresses. Similar to international orders, FedEx always has reliable tracking, and for USPS only Express Mail has reliable tracking information outside of the contiguous USA. We will send an e-mail with a tracking number regardless of the shipping option you choose, but cannot guarantee the availability of tracking information if you select USPS.
