The information contained herein together with the suggestions for use and application is, to the best of our knowledge, true and reliable. Since conditions of application and use are beyond our control, no warranty is expressed or implied in respect of these recommendations or products. Users are recommended to carry out confirmatory tests to check the suitability of products for their specific use.
The surface must be thoroughly cleaned to ensure freedom from all contamination. For all wood whether previously varnished or not abrade to smooth surface with 240 grade wet/dry paper along the grain. Remove residues by vacuum cleaner and dust wipe. “Oily” wood such as Teak and Iroko should be wiped down with White Spirit. If old varnish requires removal use mechanical means not paint remover.
For all types of new wood it is recommended the first coat is thinned.
FOR SOFT WOOD add 10% by volume of White Spirit as a sealer coat. Follow by top coats at full strength.
FOR HARD WOOD add 20-50% White Spirit for first sealer coat followed by second sealer coat thinned 10-25% with White Spirit. The more dense the wood the more severe the thinning required. Ensure over coating times are adhered to. Light sanding between coats will be beneficial.
Do not apply varnish whilst surface is exposed to direct sunlight. For all areas previously varnished clean with White Spirit and abrade. Sealers are not normally required.
