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.

Perfect finish coat(s) for Epifanes gloss spar varnish. Softens the look.

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.

I used this product on a wood exterior door that has sun exposure in the Houston, Texas area. I cut it 50% with Epifanes thinner because it was so thick and applied 4 coats. Traditionally finishes on doors like this last maybe 5 years, Epifanes is going 8 and looks like I did it yesterday. Side note, I always write the acquisition and open date on all liquid products. This bad boy was 10 years old and I gave it to a friend to use on his boat because it is such a great product. The finish dried and looks 100%.

I finished our new mahogany front door with 4 coats Epifanes gloss varnish thinning and applying as recommended by Epifanes. Then finished with two coats Epifanes matte finish with the first coat cut with 25% thinner and the final coat 5% thinner. The door looks so fantastic everyone who comes to the house comments on the door. Even the UPS guy, who has probably seen thousands of front doors, said "I never saw such a beautiful front door" and I had not even mentioned we had a new front door. You can't beat this stuff. The man who made the door is from Germany and he said, "In Germany this is all we use on wood doors". This stuff is more expensive than other varnishes, but it is worth every penny.

It went on well (brushing on it handles different than epifanes high gloss but not bad just different) and dries nice and even. After 4 coats of high gloss this canoe looked so nice I almost didn't put this last finishing coat on the interior but I went ahead and I really like the toned down, rich look!

Levels out nice but must be cut with thinner to flow and brush out evenly

I use Woodfinish Matte on furniture. I spray it, and it flows out beautifully, and dries to a lovely, even sheen. I highly recommend this product.
