Question

Hello I have sanded my wood, will bleach but not sure if I should use wood sealer or the penetrating stain before varnishing, should I skip the sealer if I stain the wood? Thank you

Asked on 11/11/2014 by Bob Harroun

Top Answer

I read in "The Complete Wooden Runabout Restoration Guide" by Danenberg that this is a good first coat(slightly thinned) sealer after applying penetrating stain and before varnishing. I have tried this method with good success.

Answer

Depends on your application. If it is a marine application or are sealing teak, the answer is yes. I really like this sealer because it contains tung oil and has great penetration properties as well as sealing out moisture. Hope this helps. Also, you can use a varnish that already has stain in it, thus eliminating a step. With this product, you have a choice of a very nice amber tint.

Answer

I am no expert, but I would use one or the other, but not both. If you apply the wood sealer, the penetrating stain will not adhere properly. If you apply the penetrating stain, the wood sealer will not adhere properly. I believe both are wood sealers. Just a question of degree. One has an added stain.

Answer

I read in "The Complete Runabout Restoration Guide" by Danenberg about using this (slightly thinned) after applying a filling stain as a first coat before varnish coats. I tried this and am very happy with the results.

This is a great product. I have just completed the refinishing of 28 pieces of trim on a 1988 Shamrock Predator. The procedure I used is as follows. 1. Pettit 2018 2. 10 coats of high build varnish 3. 3 coats of high UV resistant high gloss varnish Very pleased with the results. Some of the early pieces have two seasons of use and show no deterioration.

I use Petit EZ WoodSealer 2018 for the first two coats after applying a filler stain on mahogany planks (both old and new mahogany planking. This worked very well without lifting the stain or smudging. I then varnished with Epiphany clear varnish with good success over this filler.

Question

Goodevening, Can I uses this product as a wood preserver on 100year old windows (sound structural condition)prior to painting with a + 45% titanium oxide paint?

Asked on 09/19/2014 by Stephen S

Top Answer

You could but not needed if you are going to paint the windows too. I used it as a wood sealer because I didn't want the wood grain to be covered up, but in all terms it is still a varnish and looks like varnish once dried. I think it be best to use a marine wood paint primer instead of this product if you are going to paint after priming the wood.

Answer

to be honest--I'm not really sure--I would think YES--seal out moisture---I'm not sure of this paint...it may not stick --check paint's label. sorry not to helpful good luck Doug

Answered on 09/20/2014 by DOUG HOUGHTON

Answer

This is a great product. Gives would an amber luster. However, you would need to reapply this sealer at regular intervals. It contains tung oil and I would be concerned about the paint adhering to the finish and do not think this is the right product for your application. I would go with a plain wood sealer. Interlux makes a great one which is paintable over. Hope this helps.

Thanks Doug for the input..... am going to do the sealer in a couple of days..... do you wait between coats? or do you do 2 coats in a day... and then allow to dry 2 days?? I also have surfaces that are overhead horizontal and was wondering how the brush would work in these situations.... would a foam roller be better in this cast... or would that disturb the stain? also, is the 1st coat of varnish thinned down 25% or? Again .... thanks for your input.....

Answer

Bob - This product goes over stain very well. I recently refinished several trim parts and used this sealer over a MinWax stain. The results were excellent.
