Epifanes Wood Finish Matte Varnish is a one-component varnish alternative based on urethane alkyd resins and tung oil. It is typically used over four coats of Epifanes Gloss Wood Finish. Suitable for both interior and exterior woods, this low gloss, matte finish varnish contains UV absorbers to provide long lasting, beautiful rich protection.
A non-sanding solution specially formulated for oily woods like teak.
Temperature should be between 50 degrees F and 85 degrees F with the air humidity below 85 percent. Avoid varnishing in too much wind or sun. A rapid loss of solvents will occur under these conditions and will decrease the flowing ability. Add thinners up to the specified percentage to compensate for the faster release of solvents. Any existing finish much be intact, degreased and sanded prior to recoating. Before applying each coat, degrease the surface with Epifanes Spray Thinner or Denatured alcohol. Use a tack cloth to remove dust particles prior to application. Always stir Epifanes Wood Finish Matte before using. Failure to do so may result in an uneven or blotchy finish. Some settling of the formulation may occur upon long standing.

I have been using this product for the last three years for all my finishing projects and the results are consistently wonderful! The finish performance is great! I did a whole kitchen remodel with white oak cabinets that came out beautiful! Way better than any factory finish could ever be.

I have written before about how impressed I was on their quick service. But then they promised delivery on Monday and it came on the following Friday. So you have to adjust your expectation.

I've ordered both from Jamestown and Amazon. They were similarly priced. Delivery was quicker and more accurate with Jamestown and the product was in better condition with no bent cans like with Amazon. I have ordered multiple times with Jamestown and am satisfied.

The color, sheen, and ease of application were great for a couple of outdoor projects I completed recently. As I'm writing this, I only have a first coat on a Mahogany entry door and a planter. I've completed a cedar glider though.

I wanted a satin finish, which is not made, so I did the following. I put on 6 coats of gloss as instructed. The last 2 coats I used a mixture of 10% gloss in a 1000ml can of matte as follows. I measured 100 ml of gloss and added it to a NEW 1000ml can of matte (yes it will fit). and used 2 coats of this mixture for a PERFECT satin finish.

Produces a strong, durable finish when applied properly. Multiple coats are required for durability --I typically use 8-10, with 2-3 fresh coats per year.

We use this on many exterior thresholds, wood frames, etc. It is the go to for professionals and looks great. The Matte is more like a "satin" finish, which my customers prefer.

Tried it as delivered with foam brush. Not a good result - very uneven film. Tried it as delivered with good bristle brush. Not a good result - very uneven film. Diluted it with 10% Epiphanes thinner. Used a good bristle brush to obtain an acceptable finish on a vertical surface I was touching up. Over coating on a large old flat surface resulted in a barely acceptable result. Harsh incident light showed up slight brush strokes. All on internal boat woodwork.after rubbing down etc etc

Used as topcoat (s) for new construction outdoor furniture. Very clear and informative instructions available online from JD. The product performance has been "spot on" thus far. Appearance is excellent.
