Product Description

Product Description

Bostik TopCote® is the perfect addition to the shop for table saw beds, drill presses, lathes, planers, band saws, miters, panel saws and hand tools. Compared to paste wax, TopCote is 30% slicker and is easier to apply. Since it does not contain silicone or petroleum, this product assembly lubricant will not stain wood or interfere with glues or finishes. Spray Bostik TopCote on your saw's table and even heavy sheets of wood feel like they're floating on air. TopCote's fluoropolymer dramatically reduces sliding friction while it repels dust, dirt and moisture.

From the Manufacturer

Top-Cote table and tool surface sealant helps your hard working tools work harder. Dramatically reduces sliding friction and allows you to handle heavy sheets of wood like they were floating on air. Repels dust, dirt and moisture. Cannot ship by air.

It really does make the surface slick, and there's no residue.

At the woodworkers guild meeting they recommended I use this new stuff called Table Top Lube from EMPIRE and they gave me a small sample.

I applied my first coat about 1 year ago and all my table tops are still slick as can be and absolutely rust free.

Bottom line up front: Don't expect miracles from this product, but most discerning consumers will already understand that.
In my experience, Topcote applied to a THOROUGHLY prepared surface (according to Bostik's instructions), in humidity below 60%, will create a very smooth surface, comparable to UHMW plastic.
Apply subsequent coats after you've run about 100 linear feet of wood over the surface (much better than car wax). Buff the application of Topcote only after it dries to a haze, if you work with it before it's dry (refer to my note about high humidity), start all over by preparing the surface. Otherwise you'll feel more friction.
If your tools are exposed to high humidity or rain/snow, well buy a non-porous cover (like one offered by HTC). If your tools do get wet and rust (as mine sometimes do), I've found that Topcote won't prevent rust, but rather it inhibits rust. What that means in short is the rust won't be as bad as if you hadn't put an application of anything on it.
Yes, wax may repel water a little better than topcote, but wax also keeps water bound to the surface of metals, once water comes into contact with the metal (this is why chrome pits if you wax it).
I'll stick with Topcote, thanks, at least until there's some tech breakthru of UHMW stainless steel that I know scientists are currently scurrying to produce.

Top-cote is something I can live without, but why would I want to?? It does reduce friction amazingly (I don't understand the reviewers who say it doesn't). As for rust prevention, that's not what I use it for. The only real prevention for rust is to keep the tool dry, not spray something on it & then leave it out in the rain. And I notice a few people complaining that it "stains" the tool surface. The product is non-staining to *wood*, as advertised, which is what matters. That is, if you actually use your tools.
Offhand I'd say, ignore any review from some weekend warrior who tells you how great silicone-based products are. Silicone is something real woodworkers go to any lengths to avoid- any tool treated with it is ruined for good- that is, any wood run through them will pretty much have defects in the finish. And most auto 'waxes' are silicone-based.
...unfortuately Amazon seems to have stopped selling it. I'll just have to go to a *real* woodworking supplier- any one- from now on.

I've been using top cote on my machine tops, metal fences and guides for about five years now. I live in western Washington and moisture here can be a problem. Especially when your shop is in the basement of a 80 year old house,on the shores of a lake.

I have never had a problem with rust on my machine surfaces when I prepared them properly. The last step, I take, before applying the top cote, is to wipe the surface with alcohol. This removes any residual moisture and cleans the pores of the metal. Using a quality car wax will import silicon to your metal surface which in turn will transfer it to your wood workpiece. This can really cause problems with a lot of finish's. Silicon is very difficult to remove from wood and will block penetration of most oil based finish's.It can also affect "natural" wax's, such as carnuba and bee's wax.

The top cote layer does provide a nice slick surface and I have no difficulty telling when a new treatment is needed, especially when ripping hardwoods.

I also use Dri Cote (seperate review) on my blades and cutters.

I recommend this product to everyone, follow the directions on the can and you won't be disappointed.

I have used TOPCOTE spray for several years on my table saw. This product does not seem to look or last like the old orange colored can or the real old pump spray bottle that I use to get. The current stuff now has a white flakey coating that flakes off and is sticky, the boards don't seem to slide like before. Now my new can is half full and won't spray any more! I checked the spray tip and it's not clogged but still nothing comes out when I push on the spray tip! It's like it lost its air! Don't waste your money it's not as good as it once was!

At the woodworkers guild meeting they recommended I use this new stuff called Table Top Lube from EMPIRE and they gave me a small sample. I tried it and it seems to work just like the old TopCote stuff!

Here on amazon Table-Top Lubricant sells for $14.99.

It cost more but I think it is work it.

This product is a good sealant but it might be better suited for garden tools than a cast iron surface.It isn't all that slippery as they claim in fact i've found it actualy causes friction.I did a simple test,I polished an area of my tablesaw with a good quality car polish and coated another area with top cote and then felt the difference. WOW the car polish was clearly the winner.I called the factory to see what they recommend using and guess what,? car polish again. This product will do great on tools you use outside or in the rain.It leaves an ugly white coating on anything you spray it on.Car polish is a whole lot cheaper and in my opinion better.It cleans polishes seals and reduces friction far better than top cote.Just do the test I mentioned and you will see for yourself. Now get out there and try it.
