Question

Fine or medium for straining Epifanes varnish?

Asked on 10/05/2015 by Philip May

Top Answer

I have purchased both: Fine for all varnishes and coarse for paints. I never strain when I open a fresh can but I do for every succeeding use.

Answer

I think I used the medium for straining. It has been years now. What I do remember best though, is that the foam brushes worked well, much better than the boar bristle brushes that left residue and dirt specks if not cleaned thoroughly. The foam brushes can be thrown out. Also, use a separate container as you apply the varnish. You do not want to get dirt in your fresh can of varnish. You might want to practice on a board the first time since splatters on the wood remain there if you are not careful. The set-up time is quick and is not like latex paint, which can be gone over after five minutes and is still not set. So, practice on scrap first. I had a dehumidifier set up to control humidity as well.

Answer

We use a catalyzed conversion varnish (clear & pigmented) and are very happy with the fine strainers. Never worked with the Epifanes Varnish. Doug

Answer

Usually medium, Epifanes it a little thick.

Answer

Thanks, I've actually been varnishing for years and ran out of filters. I could not remember what I had previously bought. So thanks for your guidance. I do agree with you about foam brushes. I buy them by the box from Jamestown.

No they are not folded, they come stacked one on top of another and then put in a plastic sleeved bag.

Answer

I think if i had any question I would go with the medium. Lots of people don't even use strainers so you are taking it to a higher level already. I would think that both would work except fine filter would run much more slowly.

Question

What is the micron size of the fine and medium filter media?

Asked on 10/30/2014 by Bob Phelps

Top Answer

I'm not sure of the micron size of the openings. I use these disposable strainers for varnish, old varnish and fresh out of the can new varnish because I'm very picky and I have never found any contaminants in my strained varnish.
