Some settling of the formulation may occur upon long standing.

      Comments about Epifanes Wood Finish Matte Varnish:

      I don't have anything to do with boats, but I do use this on outdoor wood signage in the Pacific NW, so it may as well be sitting in an ocean! I used this over the top of the Total Boat CPES, applied 4 coats of the matte on top and it is GORGEOUS! And I'm very comfortable handing these off and letting them hang in the elements for years to come.

          Comments about Epifanes Wood Finish Matte Varnish:

          I used this finish over the top of penetrating epoxy. I used it on a butcher's block vanity top in a bathroom. I'm not a pro, but I've done a little bit of wood finishing. I agree with some comments about the difficulty of maintaining a wet edge. I brushed my first two coats on with a good quality brush, but still had lapping between passes. Between coats, I sanded with 320 grit paper. My final coat, I used a smooth finish foam roller. It left a slight orange peel finish, but it is even and looks very nice. I really like the dull luster and depth to the finish.

            Good have been to my shop/weather conditions but first coat applied dragged and tugged more than I would have liked. Second coat I found that if I brushed a second time, it almost worked out any marked and buffed the final finish to the matte finish I desired.

                  Epifanes matte varnish is the final coat on the doors I refinish for my customers. They love the deep, rich look that it adds.

                    Comments about Epifanes Wood Finish Matte Varnish:

                    I used 2 coats of the matte over 2 coats of high gloss on the inside of my cedar strip canoe. It was the perfect contrast finish (form) and does not produce a blinding glare (function) from the sun.
                    It does have a much stronger odor compared to the epifanes high gloss. The no-sanding window between coats is nice, just be sure to thin properly to your conditions! I had to thin to about 12% by vol. for 70 deg. F 50%RH which is much more then recommended. Note I rolled and tipped with a foam roller and brush.

                      This is a great product! I think the sheen is perfect. This is a bit thinner than the gloss varnish, but the application rate is similar. I varnished with this on a hot day and it started to set quickly. So you need to work very fast on hot days! I believe this is an excellent product. The matte finish looks great!

                      Comments about Epifanes Wood Finish Matte Varnish:

                      I still hate varinishing. Using a product like this means you may never need to refinish again! I think the sheen is perfect for interior projects. It is somewhat thinner than the gloss varnish, but application rate is the same. It brushes a little eassier than the gloss varnish. It does not build as quickly since it has less solid content. So, I normally build the finish with gloss and then complete with one coat of the matte finish. It starts to set quickly, so you must keep a wet edge. If you use only one coat you must apply evenly and rather thick to have the surface level out the brush strokes. The doors below have three coats of gloss followed by one coat of this matte finish. I am very pleased with the product.
