Gleam 2.0 has improved overcoating & cure times, yields medium build per coat, with excellent flow-out, leaving a smooth, durable surface. It can be scuffed and overcoated faster than before to build gloss, as needed. For brushing, thin with TotalBoat Special Brushing Thinner 100; for spray application, thin with TotalBoat Spray Thinner 101.
Available in high-gloss and satin finishes that are weather resistant and easy to work with over new wood and previously coated surfaces.
|TB-GLEAMCOMBO-K||2-Quart Combo Kit (1 Qt. Gloss & 1 Qt. Satin)||Satin|
And the Satin varnish provides the same excellent level of UV protection as the Gloss varnish, so it's ideal on exterior as well as interior surfaces.
Gleam 2.0 Gloss and Satin formulas are available in individual Pint, Quart Kit, 2-Quart Kit, and Gallon Kit sizes.
You told us you love Gleam's velvety satin finish, but want better clarity. So we've put together a combo kit containing 1 quart of TotalBoat Gleam 2.0 Gloss Varnish and 1 quart of Gleam 2.0 Satin Varnish that lets you build gloss coats to protect and showcase the wood grain, then finish with a couple of coats of satin to get the smooth, beautiful, non-gloss finish you desire. For the gloss/satin combo kit, select TB-GLEAMCOMBO-K from the product list.
Bare wood, especially plywood, is very porous and needs to be sealed before applying build and finish coats of varnish. If not, the initial coats of varnish soak into the wood, requiring more varnish (and more money) to apply enough build coats until the surface is uniformly level enough for the final coat of varnish. With unsealed oily woods like teak and mahogany, the varnish's viscosity will not allow it to penetrate the wood grain and adhere properly, which will eventually cause it to lift and ruin the finish—and all your hard work.
For this reason, the first few sealer coats of varnish are typically thinned in order to penetrate and seal the wood. These sealer coats take time to apply, time to dry, and must be sanded between coats. Now there's an improved way to apply sealer coats.
TotalBoat Wood Sealer, is easier and faster than using unthinned varnish for sealer coats. It seals bare wood grain and smooths the surface on all types of wood, doesn't require sanding between coats, and dries more quickly than thinned varnish. And unlike other wood sealers, it contains UV blockers that protect your beautiful varnish finish down to the wood surface. TotalBoat Wood Sealer is clear, so it enhances the beauty of the wood grain and the varnish finish. TotalBoat Wood Sealer (sold separately) is compatible with 1-part varnish, and is ideal for use with TotalBoat Gleam 2.0 and TotalBoat Lust varnish finishes. Refer to the Gleam 2.0 Tech Data sheet for details on using TotalBoat Woods Sealer with Gleam 2.0.

I put it on an outdoor table and it's amazing!

I just used this product on my spruce boom for a Pearson Vanguard. I sanded the boom down to bare wood, washed it, let it dry and applied a coat of thinned down West Epoxy with Special Hardener. Sanded lightly and applied another coat. Sanded again and put on three coats of Gleam Gloss in one day, sanded lightly and applied three more coats another day. The Gleam is very forgiving and levels out very nicely compared to other varnishes I have used.

I love how easy it goes on and how durable the finish is on. I was using another varnish and was getting so frustrated with the results! I use it for finishing my fly fishing nets.

I have done a little varnish work in the past but it always seems to be a struggle to get a smooth finish. I rolled with a 4" foam weenie roller and then tipped with a 4" chisel point foam brush. Two coats a day for two days then 320 grit for 5th coat. Best finish I've ever had.

We have two production wood shops and use Gleam 2.0 and Halcyon on our outdoor projects exclusively! Incredible build up and durability! The clarity is unparalleled as well, as we aim to have as natural as a look as possible!

I used this product for varnishing the tiller, daggerboard and thwarts for a small sailboat. The product applied easily and was simple to work with. It easily applied over oil-based stain, as well as over bare wood. Happy with the results!

I used this product to protect using your 2 part epoxy product for a per memorial so the UV didn't harm the stone as it will be in the sun. I put 5 coats on it to insure the result
