Answer

The product is best used for interior finish. I would recommend using Epifanes Gloss Clear Varnish for your project. I find it to be relatively easy to apply, very durable and repairable for year-to-year touch up. It has an amber cast and will probably give you the rich tone you're looking for.

Answer

I used this product on the interior of my 2001 Tayana 52. Trying to match the factory finish, this product came closest for sheen. has proven to be durable. I use the clear gloss on my exterior rails. very good product. be sure to thin slightly so it flows on with no sags. Rubbed effect will give you the same tone as a good quality classic varnish.

Answer

Hello! I can't tell you how to remove the old oil, but I have had experience with the Rubbed Effect Epifanes. We completely restored a 30' Catalina recently and stripped all the teak, then applied 3-6 coats of Captain's Varnish and then applied 2 coats of Rubbed Effect Epifanes on the INTERIOR wood only. It came out just beautifully and looks like fine furniture. I'm not sure I would recommend it for exterior wood, as it's not as hard as gloss. I hope that helps! Happy sailing.

Answer

Epipanes is the way to go, but not rubbed effect. I have a big Hinckley sailing catch with nothing but wood everywhere. You need the gloss and plenty of coats for the UV protection. It will in time go flat, if you put enough coats on, Hinckley will tell you 12. I am lucky if I get 4. Traveling next to the Bahamas, so UV is really important. Make sure all the oil is off, sand then acetone. Regards Diane

Question

I want a satin finish on a mahogany front entry door. I have applied coats of Epiphanes Spar Varnish and it is going on well. I do want a more subtle final finish. Can I overcoat the last coat with the Mattte finish? It is an exterior location that is under a porch, but does get some moisture and sun.

Answer

Yes, you can. I would do at least two coats and make sure you sand, vacuum, and wipe down with thinner in between coats.

Answer

Epiphanes suggests a build up of gloss varnish underneath the rubbed effect, so I would say yes to your question.

Answered on 11/05/2014 by CHRISTOPHER MILLER

Answer

Yes, you can. I have used Epifanes clear spar varnish on furniture for a fast build and clear grain then applied a coat or two of Epifanes Rubbed Effect over it for the matte finish you're looking for. I don't believe the Rubbed Effect will last as long with solar exposure as the Clear but it is easy to touch up. The moisture should not be a problem.

Question

Does this product yellow over time?

Asked on 10/19/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

I'm afraid I have not had this product on the surfaces much longer than a year, so I can't speak to its yellowing over time. As of now, it has not yellowed a bit. I can tell you that the look of this product is beautiful. We renovated the entire interior of our 1981 Catalina 30 with this product. Many have remarked on how our interior teak looks "just like beautiful furniture". I highly recommend this product. We laid down 4+ coats of Captain's Varnish Gloss first and then added 2 coats of the Epifanes Rubbed Effect Varnish. It definitely took two coats to get the desired look. Good luck!

Answer

I use Epifanes on almost all of the furniture I build and have not noticed any yellowing. These are mostly cherry and walnut. Some of the furniture is over ten years old. Additionally, I have used it on teak cabinets and table surface on my boat with no sign of yellowing.
