Epifanes clear marine spar varnish is renowned for its high-gloss finish and offers superior protection in all climates. Formulated with tung oil, phenolic and alkyd resins, and U.V. filters for superior protection. It is an exceptional finish for wood or over traditional marine varnish clear urethane and clear epoxy resins systems.
Go for Two! Our new JD Epifanes Clear Gloss Kit (CVKIT) includes two 1000ml cans of varnish, 2 foam brushes, 2 paint strainers, 2 stir sticks, and 2 plastic paint pails. This is a great value. You save on the varnish and receive brushes, strainers, and pails for free!
Temperatures should be between 50 degrees F and 85 degrees F for application, with air humidity below 85 percent. Avoid varnishing in too much sun or wind, a rapid loss of solvents will occur under these conditions and will decrease the flowing ability. Epifanes Clear Gloss Varnish is compatible with most other types of one-component alkyd or urethane based varnishes and over two-component varnishes.

What needs saying that hasn't already been said about this varnish... Like painting on warm honey. Great to work with and great dried finish.

It worked great. I refinished Mahogany Tee Markers and they turned out perfect with their new finish!

I am still waiting for nice dry weather. With no rain. I recommend these products to people redoing doors, hardwood trim in house, etc.

I use this marine varnish to protect outdoor Teak furniture. The UV protection is great, particularly if multiple coats are applied. I wish I had a sailboat with Teak decking, but alas, No.

I'm using this on mahogany front doors. Works pretty good. If any one has experience or suggestions I'd like to hear them.

I used this varnish at the recommendation of another builder, and against my better judgement I bought it and am stuck with the remaining 2 of 3 pints. I'm disappointed that even following the sanding, coverage, and thinning directions to the tee, it hasn't performed. It spreads as it's laid down, i.e. lacks flow if used with a brush, sags on thinner coats on vertical surfaces (even when laid down extremely thin), shows any "off track" with the brush strokes and when laid on thicker binds in the brush and surface. I use another brand that has the same synonym as a skipper of boat (not sure we can compare brands in these reviews - which though I struggled with at times, it has a way more consistent hold, flow, and spreads evenly in a "self-correcting" manner. I know because I was laying down both brands at the same time in the exact same conditions. I'm going back to my original varnish - now let me do a review for that one! I'm not laying down another pint of this stuff and will go with the other brand - it's really top notch by comparison. Sad thing is that there are no returns on paints - my bad not to know this in advance. Don't buy unless your sure or want to eat the cost.

I use Epifanes for a north facing mahogany front porch that gets pounded by nor' easters. The last coat I put on lasted 4 years before I needed to redo it. A solid performer and great advice from Jamestown Distributers
