TotalBoat Gleam Spar Varnish

New for 2014!

TotalBoat Gleam is a marine spar varnish featuring a high quality Tung Oil formula, with a phenolic resin base and added UV inhibitors. Gleam is ideally suited for clear coating on interior and exterior surfaces where maximum water and UV resistance is required.

This varnish yields medium build per coat with excellent flow-out, leaving a smooth durable surface that can be scuffed and over-coated to build gloss as needed.

Gleam is available in both high-gloss and low-sheen satin finishes. Both are equally weather resistant and easy to work with over new wood and previously coated surfaces.

Includes 2 paint pots, 2 stir sticks, and a pair of latex gloves.

FIRST COAT  SECOND COAT  THIRD COAT 
10% Mineral Spirits  5% Mineral Spirits  Do not thin 
90% Varnish  95% Varnish  100% Varnish 
Surface Preparation:

Wipe down surface with denatured alcohol cleaning solvent. Surface must be clean, dry, and free of dust oil and grease prior to varnishing. For a seal coat with maximum penetration into wood, thin your first coat of TotalBoat varnish with mineral spirits, up to 10%, and build up to full body varnish from there.

For best results, we recommend a minimum of two coats over the seal coat; however, additional coats may be applied for better depth and appearance at any time. As you build coats, you build gloss.

Gleam cures overnight and is ready to scuff at 60 degrees F. Wipe with a tack cloth.

Tips:

Filtering is recommended with fine or medium paint strainers.

Use foam or natural hair brushes for best results.

    Comments about TotalBoat Gleam Spar Varnish:

    After investigating the resins and UV additives in the product and finding them to be of the highest quality, I used Gleam Spar Varnish on the railing and steps at rear of house. First cleaned all the algae and mildew off the steps with bleach. (On North side of house so prone to this problem) Let it dry thoroughly. Followed detailed directions on Gleam container. Used satin finish. Put on three coats over a five day period. The rain water since has beaded and run off steps and railing just as I had hoped. At this point in time, 5 weeks after application... it looks great. Durability will be the next test.

                Comments about TotalBoat Gleam Spar Varnish:

                Decided to try both the gloss and satin finish.
                I had the same problem with both -- very long dry times. I used them both outside covered (85-90 deg temp) and inside in aircon enviorment (75-80 deg.).
                The finish, when dry was nice, but both took in excess of 28 hours to be sandable for next coat.
