Penetrol is a performance additive for wood and metal primer. When used alone, Penetrol restores luster to faded fiberglass. As a paint additive for wood and metal primers, it increases penetration and adhesion. When added to enamels and varnish, brushing is easier with less drag and pull. Penetrol also protects and polishes all metals.

can I use it directly on wood as a protectorent?
This is typically added to paint to enhance penetration and flow of the paint. Not typically used straight on wood for protection.
I understand this product helps restore faded fiberglass. After using this product on the fiberglass, can you then apply a wax?

Yes, after the use of Penetrol you should apply either a good marine wax or a liquid protectant like 303.
I have used this only on the non-skid surface, so have never tried to apply wax after the application.
I have a galvanized sheet metal countertop that i would like to protect. Would this do the trick?
This product would certinly protect your counter top, but, i will leave a greasy film on it.
what removes penatrol from fiberglass?

Wipe some fresh Penetrol over the dried Penetrol and let it set for 5-10 minutes. Then wipe off. It should take most of the old with it. Clean the spot with acetone.
Trry turps first and wipe with clean cloth. If it has penetrated the gloss on the glass lightly wipw with acetone. Warning too much acetone can remove the sheen.
Friends tell me this will work wonders on my 17ft Mako and will also work wonders on my black jeep wrangler hardtop?????????
Hi Alan,google on 'penetrol jeep' and you will find a 'jeepforom' with experiences using penetrol in various ways. Personally I only have used it as a paint additive for zspar, interlux and pettit marine paints and varnishes and I love it. Just be careful you use it with a proper paint vehicle- two part poly certainly not.I hope this helps,Tom
Will "work wonders" , clean then apply (I spray on with a spray bottle) done.
I have used this successfully with varnish. It eliminates the drag and thus brush lines.
That would be a new application for me. I can only say that when I applied it ti varnish,1 capfull to a pint, it smoothed and accelerated the drying time so recoating in 1 hr was accomplished. I have only applied it to bright wood but I would imagine it would thin the waterproof coating and would allowing better sealing of any sun induced cracks. Get back to me, if your happy with it, I might use it to resear aly cracks in the cabin top of Triton # 80.
I would like to know if Penetrol is compatable with the Interlux Brightside polyurethane paint? The application would be for a newly constructed boat made primarily with marine plywood (Okoume). If the Brightside is oil based it should be OK. I reside in the Phoenix area and Penetrol works well in this climate.......just not sure if it is OK forthe above referenced paint. Thanks, Dennis
Sorry, Can't help you with this oneI only use it with varnish (hi gloss and semi gloss) as a thinner or a primer and it works great. Have not used it with paint.Bill

Don't know about paint as we have only used Penetrol with varnish. Makes i flow better.
I have only used it to reseal badly oxidized gel coat works great for that and have only painted over it once using a polyurethane which worked well. I do not know if this helps but good luck.
Hi Dennis.Here on the East Coast I worked as marine painter for about seven years @ Cape Code marine Service- MacDouglas. We used Penetrol like water- absolutely great product with Interlux, Pettit,Zspar varnishes.etc.That was a long time ago however. 70's.I love Penetrol! But formulas have changed I found last summer - using pettit 105 with penetrol. Penetrol never mixed carrier like it sed to but did no harm and gave me longer wet edge and flow. Worked better when I did half/half coat using pettit 100. I never got to straight coat of 100 but suspect that would have been as it used to be.IInterlux poly- new for me so I did research- Two part poly certainly not and that is an obvious one. One part poly I have not found anything pointing to problems. In fact a lot of people claim to have great success. Interlux sales says do not use but that is their job and we never listened to them then and would test now with that kind of response - and even if they said yes. :)Search on BLACK ROLLER PAINT JOB? and select Black Roller Paint Job? R3Vlimited Forums (I could not attach URL- sorry)Here you will find approval.Still, test. Always cheaper in the long run and you will go into the project with more confidence and knowledgeable rather than try to keep a wet edge and adjust with hope at the same time.Hope this was helpful,Tom
Another use for Penetrol
I have used Penetrol for years to restore the finish on fiberglass sailboats I sell. I recently bought a guitar, with a somewhat dingy finish. Penetrol worked wonders, the same results as with fiberglass, amazing. This guitar has an original laquer finish. Removed the dinge, and filled the porous surface, for a great shine. Great product!!!!
Life Saver Product!
I used this product with applying varnish in a marine application and Penetrol allowed me to do it in a high heat/high humidity condition without brush marks. The flow was awesome.
I THINK THIS PRPDUCT IS GREAT
MY BOAT IS 22 YEARS OLD, BAD SPOTS REQUIRE 2-3 COATS. IT'S WORTH THE EFFORT---WOW!
