Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss Varnish

Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss Varnish works especially well on Teak wood. No sanding between coats is required. This is the perfect alternative to traditional varnish as it eliminates all that sanding and repetitive care.

Phenolic based resins, tung oil, and UV inhibitors build quickly for a high gloss finish with long lasting beauty on teak and other fine hard woods. Formulated for extraordinary protection, even in tropical climates, Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss is also recommended as a sealer and filler for wood.

Beautiful finish. Easy to apply.


I used this varnish on the teak swim platform on my boat. It is easy to apply. Looks great. Definitely should have good ventilation when working with it.

Definitely a fan of Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss Varnish


I've been using Epifanes Wood Finish Gloss Varnish for about 6 years now and have found it to be a great product in terms of appearance, use and repair. With over 30 years of sailboat ownership and 25 of those with boats with exterior teak, I've tried quite a few of the popular products with varying degrees of success. There is no doubt that teak will need to be refinished or have the existing finish repaired to varying degrees every year. The main reason I've turned to Epifanes is both the durability of the finish and when repairs are necessary (and they always are...), you can blend the repair into the existing finish with minimal effort, the 72 hour re-coat time without sanding between coats is also a HUGE plus. I haven't even mentioned how good the exterior wood work looks in a deep gloss finish. I do apply it with a good brush and thin it the recommended amount when necessary to help it flow better. In warmer weather it can get a bit thick so the thinning keeps it going on smooth and it levels out nicely. Our 1978 Bristol 27.7 has a good bit of exterior teak including a full teak toe rail, teak handrails, and the entire companionway is surrounded by and made of teak. Using Ephfanes has helped reduce the overall work I do annually so we can get out there and SAIL......all while looking great doing it.

Good stuff but Bubble Problems


Tiny Bubbles . . . Arrrgh#$%^&@!Worked very hard to remove all dust, grease, etc. fromnew boat seats before . . . Applied with foam brush . . .tipped with same brush . . . tiny bubbles in surface rightaway . . . even after 4 coats . . . Same problem as other varnishes . . . from 10 ft the seats look fine. Really nice to skip sanding in between coats.




Very good product


I am using this on the cockpit of a racing dinghy. Bare wood (Mahogany) has 3 coats of West 105-207 and then four coats of Wood finish gloss. I will overcoat with Epifanes Wood gloss varnish. I selected wood finish gloss to avoid required sanding between coats. I'm still lightly sanding with 320 to look for imperfections and give a good contrast for the next coat but it's nice to not have to do a thorough job. I am waiting the max 72 hours between coats.

Great Product for brightwork!


I prepped and masked my brightwork. The varnish went on easily and was thick (about the consistency of Vermont maple syrup) and did not run. After 3 coats the wood looks beautiful! Hopefully, the varnish will last more than one season.

Excellent Consistent Quality Finish


Excellent product worked as stated - over teak - has rich light amber contrast and super gloss finish. Will use product in more applications as it is also easy to use - flows well, mixes well and applies consistently.

Epifanes Varnish products


I started varnishing a 23' Pearson Ensign and a Chesapeak Lightcraft kayak with Interlux brand varnishes. I was very discouraged by the brush strokes remaining in the dryed finish and the dull/dry spots left due to the wet edge being very quick setting. I switched to Bristol Finish two part system and was thoroughly disgusted by gummy material applied. It couldn't be sanded and would not apply evenly. I then switched to Epifanes. I sanded all of above down, applied 3 coats of Wood Gloss finish followed by 1 coat of Gloss Varnish. -Every- coat went on smooth and easy with results looking better at each coat. Light sanding before applying the last coat of varnish. Done deal.I will no longer use any other product line except Epifanes.




No Sanding Hurry!!!!


With no sanding and using foam brushes you can get a lot done in a short time.

I definitely recommend this product!


I used Epifanes paint and varnish on my nearly complete sailboat,COQUINA, that I've built over the last several years ....I decided to use the best finishes available after spending years working on my boat!
