Our dewaxed shellac is processed in Germany and is considered among the highest quality available anywhere.  


It is flown to us in lot numbered batches and we package it on our own line in Canada to keep our prices down and reasonable for you.


We include a dessicant pack and oxygen absorber heat sealed inside a resealable barrier bag to ensure freshness of the shellac during shipping and storage.


We regularly test our shellac inventory for solubility so that you can be certain that every package we ship will be of the highest quality and will dissolve quickly and completely in fresh denatured ethanol.

Shellac is a perishable product and despite common misconceptions, shellac flakes do NOT last forever.  Shellac flakes WILL degrade such that they will no longer dissolve in alcohol.

In excellent storage conditions, shellac flakes can last many years (storage conditions from 40F to 50F at <40% RH are suggested). 

However, in poor storage conditions, they can become unuseable in as short as a couple months.   
We regularly perform solubility testing of our shellac stock to ensure that it will dissolve in fresh ethanol when we ship it.

We discourage customers from overstocking or hoarding shellac flakes beyond what is expected to be used within a reasonable time.

Our shellac is now heat sealed in clear barrier bags with oxygen absorber and a dessicant packet for improved shelf-life.
