Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss Varnish

Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss varnish works especially well on Teak wood. No sanding between coats is required. This is the perfect alternative to traditional varnish as it eliminates all that sanding and repetitive care.

Phenolic based resins, tung oil, and UV inhibitors build quickly for a high gloss finish with long lasting beauty on teak and other fine hard woods. Formulated for extraordinary protection, even in tropical climates, Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss is also recommended as a sealer and filler for wood.

      Comments about Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss Varnish:

      I started varnishing a 23' Pearson Ensign and a Chesapeak Lightcraft kayak with Interlux brand varnishes. I was very discouraged by the brush strokes remaining in the dryed finish and the dull/dry spots left due to the wet edge being very quick setting. I switched to Bristol Finish two part system and was thoroughly disgusted by gummy material applied. It couldn't be sanded and would not apply evenly. I then switched to Epifanes. I sanded all of above down, applied 3 coats of Wood Gloss finish followed by 1 coat of Gloss Varnish. -Every- coat went on smooth and easy with results looking better at each coat. Light sanding before applying the last coat of varnish. Done deal.
      I will no longer use any other product line except Epifanes.

          With no sanding and using foam brushes you can get a lot done in a short time.

                    Can there exist a more satisfying finish than well-varnished teak? I think not!
                    This alternative to tradtional varnishes (which require sanding between each coat, unlike this product which does not) puts on a beautiful glossy finish and is pretty straightforward in use. Sand before initial coat and thin to specifications with their thinner but BE CERTAIN to heed their instructions regarding the maximum 72 hour window for recoating or you'll end up with a milky coat that must be sanded down and you'll lose the time you saved. With that caveat aside the product seems terrific.

                    Comments about Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss Varnish:

                    I bought this primarily because of the no sanding between coats. This was of interest to me because I needed something to put on Adirondack chairs that were obviously going to be outside. I had previously used the clear high gloss varnish but the sanding between coats was a real chore because of all the slats that go to make up a chair. The wood finish went on very and looked good after only 3 coats although I put on 5 coats for extra protection. Interesting enough was the fact that the directions on the can said that for maximum protection topcoat with several coats of the clear high gloss varnish.

                        Great product for build coats. Too thick from can, must add thinner. If applying in the tropics use 333 as the thinner and it won't dry too quickly, leaves a very smooth finish when applied with a quality badger bristle brush. I usually seal the teak first with a few coats of Smith's CPES, then use this for the build coats so I don't need to sand between layers, then do two top coats of Epifanes Clear, sanding between. You get a mirror finish when done.

                          Selected this based on a Practical Sailor review. Was not disappointed. Preparation is key, mixing with thinner in reasonable ratios (not necessarily exact) works really well. Used on trim and large flat areas. With just 4 coats or more, looked great all season, even through blazing sunshine. Changed the way my boat looks.

                            I apply thinned preliminary coats as advised on the can, wet sanding between coats using 320 grit with mineral spirits lubricant. Sometimes the finish is slow to dry on the edge of ebony fingerboards and painting a little Japan dryer on the wood or first coat of finish there with a Q-tip solves this problem. If the final coat is thinned, it is easier to rub out. Incredibly durable and the instruments sound great.

                                I use this product on numerous tropical hardwoods, usually after having applied tung oil (and let dry completely) and it gives an excellent finish. Gives a depth and warmth to the wood with excellent clarity and a nice feel to the touch. Quite thick requiring dilution, which means that there is a lot of solids unlike the domestic products, and a good deal of coverage.

                                      I have been using this product ever since I bought my boat. I use on all the exterior teak on my boat and follow up 6 or 8 coats with a finish coat of Epifanes clear varnish. This gives a beautiful gloss finish. I start with a first coat thinned with 10 to 20% penetrol and thinner.
