Interlux Perfection Plus Two Part Varnish

Interlux Perfection Plus varnish is a clear, two-part polyurethane high gloss finish for wood and epoxy. This high-clarity, high gloss marine varnish provides superior UV protection and prolonged resistance to chemicals and abrasion.

The Plus formula is Interlux's most durable, a finish that lasts up to four times longer than conventional one-part varnish products. Designed for above the waterline use, the chemical cure of Perfection Plus provides superior resistance to fuels, oil and mild acids and alkali spills and is fully compatible with oily woods such as teak.

APPLICATION AND USE

Preparation

BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Wipe with Brush Thinner 2333N. Apply a sealer coat of Perfection Varnish reduced 10% with Brush Thinner 2333N.

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: With Perfection Varnish: In Good Condition Sand surface with 120-150 grade (grit) paper and remove all dust. In Poor Condition If varnish is badly checked or peeling, remove finish to bare wood with Interstrip Semi-Paste 299E.

CLEAR EPOXY: Allow epoxy to cure for 5-7 days. Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Wash down with fresh water. Wet sand with 180-220 grade (grit) paper. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.

Method Apply at least 5-7 coats on bare wood and a minimum of 3 coats on surfaces previously coated with Perfection Varnish. Sand between each coat with 220 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue with a rag dampened with Brushing Thinner 2333N.

Hints

Mixing Mix base and curing agent thoroughly at the specified ratio.

Thinner Brush/Roller - Brush Thinner 2333N.

Cleaner Epoxy - Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. Bare Wood - Brush Thinner 2333N.

Ventilation and Humidity Control It is best to paint on warm, dry mornings. Cold weather retards the drying and humidity can spoil the gloss.

Brush Use a natural bristle brush.

Roller If rolling, use a thin nap roller and "tip-off" with a clean natural bristle brush.

Other Perfection Varnish is not recommended for spray application because of the slow evaporating system which leads to slow set-up time and therefore possible sagging. Perfection Varnish differs from Interthane Plus in that it is not supplied in concentrated form. It is ready for application as soon as the base and curing agent are mixed.

Some Important Points When applying Perfection Varnish to clear epoxy, follow instructions carefully. Failure to do so will result in poor dry and loss of adhesion. Avoid painting in direct sunlight. Product temperature should be minimum 10 deg C/50 deg F and maximum 29 deg C/85 deg F. Ambient temperature should be minimum 10 deg C/50 deg F and maximum 35 deg C/95 deg F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 10 deg C/50 deg F and maximum 29 deg C/85 deg F.

Compatibility/Substrates Apply to clean, dry, properly prepared surfaces only. Do not apply over one part paints.

            This product is great for areas you only want to or can varnish once a season. In this case a teak swim platform. Virtually impossibel to do in season because proximity to waterline.

                    Finally used foam brush and let induce for 40 minutes with 35% thinner.....
                    then Applied with a single brush stroke to each area, brushing Real SLOW and I would not get any bubbles forming up 5 or 10 minutes later....Only got the Centerboard Perfectly bubble free....

                    The deck, which was larger area, Always gave off tiny bubbles, no mater what technique I tried...and I tried them all...I put 8 coats on over sealed epoxy wood, sanding 400 wet between coats, using interlux thinner for wipedown and waiting 1 hour or more to varnish...BUT..the Gloss is Awsome!!..I just have to live with the microscopic bubbles that would form.

                      Just used this over West System Clear epoxy on decks of my mahogany runabout for first time. Despite some varnishes advertising being clear, they often have slight color (didn't want varnish to discolor deck seems). This product is clear and very glossy. I was able to apply 3 coats back to back as a base and then two more(roll and tip). Came out great. Can't vouch for durability yet but am very pleased vs. regular varnish so far even taking cost into consideration.

                      Comments about Interlux Perfection Plus Two Part Varnish:

                      This is not the easiest varnish to apply. There are many factors that effect the outcome, such as temperature, time of day applied, dew point, sun, and amount of thinner (2333N) added.

                      The cost is also a factor, but you get what you pay for.

                      I have used Interthane Plus (now called Perfection) for about 20 years on my Egg Harbor and have been extremely pleased with it durability and retention of gloss. When fully cured, it is as tough as nails.
