Technical Data Sheet


A high performance exterior varnish for the decoration and protection of most wooden surfaces where a durable high gloss finish is required. Used extensively on wooden window frames, doors, weatherboard etc.

Contains ultra violet light absorbers to retard degradation and prevent premature embrittlement. Formulated to give extended life to exterior wooden surfaces. Excellent film clarity and high gloss finish.

New Work:
Surfaces must be clean, dry and well sanded. Thin first coat up to 20% with Mineral Turps in order to aid penetration. Thin second coat 10%, third and fourth coats to be applied unthinned. Sand lightly between coats.

Previously Painted:
Surfaces in sound condition must be well sanded. For best results & maximum protection a minimum of 3 coats must be applied, with minimum 24 hours drying time between coats. Surfaces in poor condition must be stripped back to bare wood then proceed as for new wood.

It is important to varnish the end grain of all exposed exterior timber to prevent the ingress of moisture. Do not apply to wet/damp timber. Not recommended for floors.

Stir thoroughly with flat paddle before use. Ready for use by brush. Thin up to 25% with Mineral Turps for conventional spray. Will require several coats for required build and gloss. Clean up with Mineral Turps.
