Wood Finishes - The Interlux Varnish Range


Wood Finishes


Wood has a beauty that good maintenance will enhance and protect. Interlux has several wood treatments for caring for the wood on your boat. All of the systems will provide a barrier to protect your boat against the elements which attack the surface during the season — sea, sun, rain and wind while enhancing the natural appearance of the wood.

Varnish
Varnishes provide excellent protection for the wood on your boat while allowing the natural beauty of the wood to show through. Varnishes are made up of five specific ingredients: oil, resin, solvent, dryers and additives. The combination of these five determines a varnish's performance.

Synthetic Finishes
Cetol® Marine is an easy to apply, low maintenance alternative to oils and varnishes. Cetol is formulated with synthetic pigments to protect the wood from exposure UV and keep it looking beautiful with the least maintenance necessary. It is flexible, resistant to impact damage and abrasion; it allows for natural expansion and contraction of wood.

Teak Oil
Interlux Premium Teak Oil uses a traditional Scandinavian blend of oils that is easy to apply, fast drying and provides a warm, golden color for the ultimate protection against the elements.

What should you consider in your choice of a wood care system?
In order to choose between these various systems, you will find it useful to consider your project from a number of different perspectives.

What preparation is necessary?
The most critical aspect of any job is the preparation of the surface prior to the application. Preparation time is also a factor. Varnish takes more time to prepare but lasts longer than Teak Oil.

What repair and upkeep is required?
Varnishes may require sanding and application of another coat of varnish once or twice a year depending on conditions where the Teak Oil may need to be reapplied every couple of months.

Remember
Like most paint applications, preparation is the most difficult and important part of the project. Poor preparation always shows through and reduces the effectiveness of the coating.
