Question

Does old varnish need to be completely removed prior to using this product? For my project, the interior of a plywood lapstrake Thompson runabout, that would be impossible. There are checks in the plywood that I am not sure coating with just more varnish would get sealed.

Top Answer

Thanks, Tom....I will follow your recommendations and I trust it will work out much better than just varnishing alone. Plywood always seems to be a challenge when is comes to checking. I think there is better plywood now, like okume, than in the 60's, too.

Answer

That sounds like a good idea. I will plan to do that. Thanks.

Answered on 05/21/2014 by Ken Beiser

Answer

First, there is a caution about not using the primer over two package polyurethane or epoxy paint. My usage was successful over previously painted plywood, with the loose paint removed. The primer adheres well. I would try removing loose varnish from a small sample area, then primer and varnish and see how well it weathers before refinishing the entire runabout.

Thanks for your input. I will give it a go. Ken

Answer

Ken, I bought this three years ago, and frankly, I can't remember what I used it on. I've got three wooden boats,and I refinished the spars on my Friendship Sloop about that time, but I did not use the Interlux Interprime on that project. I would direct you to the three reviews found on this website, which were favorable, except for the short shelf life. Jim

Answer

Ken, If the old varnish seems sound then you can use the interprime. It will seal the checks better than varnish. Scuff up the old varnish before applying. tom

Question

I am restoring a wood boat. What's the difference between Interlux Inter-Prime 1026 Wood Sealer and Interlux Interprime CLEAR wood Sealer? Is it OK as its applied to bare wood, if it also overlaps previous yet sanded paint? Thx. Jim

Asked on 06/02/2015 by Jim Alger

Top Answer

I believe the Interlux interprime is a one part primer and the clear primer is a two part primer. I used the one part primer over bare wood with some overlapping on to previously painted wood ( oil based paint) with very good results.

Answer

I don't know the difference. but the sealer works good sealing bare wood. if you put it over paint, it will discolor it much like varnish, and not seal paint.

Can I use Interlux Brightside Polyurethane (NOT 2 PART)paint to finish over the Interprime?

Asked on 02/03/2014 by Tom DAntonio

Top Answer

The interlux data sheet lists Goldspar Clear which is a Polyurethane varnish as an over cost for interlux prime. Also there is an ask the experts section on the interlux yachtpaint web page that may be helpful.

Question

I am restoring 1954 Penn Yan the inside wood is gray and dry, but seems to be in good shape. I was going to sand everything down and then seal the wood before varnishing. Was thinking epoxy of some sort but I am worried about wood being to stiff and not being able to breath. Any help on products for project . Thanks

Top Answer

If you want to seal it prior to varnish and don't want to use an epoxy like our Totalboat Penetrating Epoxy, look at This Interlux Interprime, our Totalboat Wood Sealer, or Pettit Wood Sealer 218, they are all similar.

can I use boiled linseed oil instead of Interlux 1026 prior to painting and varnishing?

Asked on 06/16/2013 by whit Rich

Top Answer

I don't know the answer to that. I can say that I love Interprime 1026. Great saturation. Dry over night. Hard finish. Great for plywood or base for varnish. Nice amber tone. I've used it for 40 year. Never had a problem.

What type of varnish shall I use after Interlux sealer?

Asked on 07/30/2012 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

You can use almost any of our varnish's after the Interlux 1026 sealer. It depends on what you're looking for, the Interlux Goldspar 60 is a great product if you're looking for a nice satin finish, We are having a sale on the Interlux Schooner 96 "JD-SCHOONERKIT" which is a great golden colored high gloss product that self-levels, but there are many options too choose from on our website, thank you.
