Door Restore Express is a “self healing” type of coating which means the coating “melts” itself. Runs, drips, and sags can be removed using a soft cloth saturated with acetone. Repairs can then easily be done with a brush or a spray can. Future coats can be applied right on top after a simple cleaning, no need for extensive surface preparation.
DO NOT USE strong solvents such as lacquer thinner or acetone to clean doors treated Door Restore Express as it can damage the surface. If surface damage does occur just touch up with a brush or a spray can.
