Question

what is the recomended drying time between coats ?

Asked on 04/29/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Unless you are a pro or a VERY EXPEIENCED with varnish, I would suggest to use another product. It took days to dry (because it is SO incredibly thick) and didnt "tip" very well. This product needs to be thinned if not applied in a warm climate. I might suggest the Pettit V-Spar Captains Varnish. Much easier to use and dry time is (1) day in between coats (also use out of the can, no thinng). It is also very easy to sand (use scotch brite pad). Tip for the day... make sure you are applying in a dust free environment. These varnishes attract every dust particle in the air! Just my 0.02 worth...

The answer to this has several factors. Temp, humidity, number of coats on the piece of wood, and the amount of thinner added. However 24 hrs is a good rule of thumb. On the can there is a chart that lists drying times. These times are accurate.

Question

how much sq ft coverage do you get out of a pint can?

Asked on 08/02/2016 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Coverage with varnish is more dificult than answering for latex due to brushing technique and application thickness. My work is done outdoors in a marine environment. I learned that Schooner Gold, straight out if the can, will laydown better (and hold a high gloss) with a thicker application technique. My estimated answer to your question is about 50-60 sq ft for one coat. Note: If you lack brushing experience, consider thinning with drops of brushing tinner #333.

Question

I used this product on my front doors and they came out A+. I had 2 neighbors ask what did you use. I'm going to be build a new house in about 2 years and will be using a nail down cherry again. Can this product be used for floors? We have nail down cherry with a minwax floor finish and I hate it. Looking for a product that will not chip at the joints due to natural expansion and contraction of the wood.

I used Schooner Gold on the sole of my boat. It has been 2 years and still looks great. I would not use it on a house floor. I would worry about the maintenance. Varnish takes weeks to fully harden, the more coats the more time. Varnish is also very weather resistant but dirt and shoes are abrasive and that is varnishes weak link. I know this is not what you want to hear but I would suggest a harder more durable finish.
