Sikkens Cetol Marine is the original durable satin, translucent protective wood finish for use above the waterline on interior and exterior woods. Easy to apply and maintain, Cetol Marine is a flexible, breathable finish along that provides weather protection for teak and other hard woods.
Often used as an early coat when prepping wood to be varnished.
Go for Two! Our new JD Cetol Kit (IVA300QKIT) includes (2) Quart cans of Cetol a quality china bristle brush and 2 stir sticks. This is a great value. You save on the varnish and receive the brush and stir sticks for free!
Sikkens Cetol Marine is formulated with a special alkyd resin and high quality synthetic UV-absorbing pigments to shield wood from damaging UV rays. When dry, the finish has an attractive dark amber appearance on wood.
Other Cetol Marine products: Cetol Marine Light, Cetol Marine Gloss, and Cetol Marine Natural Teak.

Has to be warm enough outside temperature to dry. Gets darker with each cost so have to switch to clear once you get desired color.

I'm using this on the railing on a residential deck. The rail is tight knot Port Orford Cedar and I wanted a tough, UV resistant finish that wouldn't rub off on clothing when folks lean on the rail as some of the stains will. 2 coats on so far and it looks good, but a bit streaky...it doesn't want to brush down evenly. Could be my prep. The 2nd coat is covering the brush streaks and I'm hoping the third coat will even it all out. I used it on some teak hatchboards many years ago and the longevity can't be beat! I wasn't after a "yacht quality" finish as much as a long lasting "park-your-beer-here" job.

I bought a boat with gray weathered teak and figured it was time to give her some love! After a good sanding to get the ridged out and the gray off, I simply wiped the wood down with a damp cloth. After letting the wood dry thoroughly it was time to apply the first coat! The cetol goes on easily, and blends well making it easy to get an even coat. Make sure to tape up around the edges! Stray drops cleaned up without too much hassle with a little water and elbow grease. Alcohol or thinners might work better but didnt spill enough to warrant it. The hardest part is waiting 24 hours to put on the next coat because we had fun slapping it on! We used 2 coats of marine and 2 coats of gloss.

I applied Sikkens Cetol Marine to a well weathered wooden deck. It had been treated, and linseed oil mix or commercial wood preserative had been applied, but none for several years. I can not, yet, speak to its durability. However, as to its application and immediate appearence, the result has been excellent. The first coat was applied on a very windy day, but the wind did not cause any problems. The viscosity is excellent. The varnish clings to the brush, yet spreads smoothly. It also readily sinks into cracks. It was a few days before I got to the second coat application, and I was able to see the good water proofing effect after just one coat. I anticipate a good, long lasting effect after the recommended three coats.
