Product Description

Polyurethane Floor Varnish Colours is a polyurethane based varnish for interior wood floors. It protects the floor form the wear and damage caused by everyday use, such as scratches, scuffs and spills. The floor varnish also provides a decorative finish to the floor with a translucent coloured finish, with colours including light oak, dark oak and antique pine.

With the range of wood colours we have available, you can match to your existing floor colour, or change the look of the wood without having to replace the flooring. This varnish is an ideal choice for revitalising tired floors with a gloss finish and a colour.

In addition to the 13 standard wood floor varnish colours we offer on this page, we are able to produce this varnish in many other colours, including blues, greens and purples. If you would like more information about these colours, please contact us.

At Palatine Paints, we manufacture our own range of paints and varnishes instead of sourcing them from an external supplier. This means we have complete knowledge of our products and can answer any questions you may have.

If you have any queries regarding surfaces, previous coatings, application or anything else, please get in touch with our team. We are available on our web chat service or by phone during our opening hours, and can also be contacted by email with any questions you may have.

If you’re looking for a clear finish floor varnish, please see our Polyurethane Floor Varnish Clear. For a solid colour wooden floor paint, we also have a floor paint for wood, available in a range of different colours, as well as an anti-slip option.

Please note: The colours on the product listings are only given as a guide. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor has a different capability to display colours. In addition, everyone sees these colours differently.


Colours Available: 13 Standard, Woodgrain

Pack Sizes: 1 Litre, 2.5 Litre, 5 Litre.

Coverage / Drying Times:

Surface Dry: 4 hours

Hard Dry: 20 hours

Overcoat: after 24 hours
Keep coated areas dry for a minimum of 24 hours following application.
Please note, drying times will be extended at low temperatures. Do not apply when ambient temperature falls below 10ºC

Theoretical Coverage: 12 – 14m² per litre.

(Coverage rate can be affected by such variables as type and condition of substrate, type of application equipment and individual method of application.)


On previously painted surfaces, ensure it is sound and non-flaking. Abrade the surface preferably by mechanical abrasion to provide a “key” and maximise adhesion of the subsequent coating.


Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.

Stir the paint with a drill stirrer or wooden baton at least 2” wide. Continue to stir during application.
Apply by brush or roller and work well into the surface. Use a paint brush for cutting in. Avoid applying the paint too thickly to avoid delaying drying times. The second coat can be applied as soon as the first coat is dry after 12-24 hours, and should be applied within 5 days. If more than 5 days elapse, the first coat should be lightly abraded before the second coat is applied. Avoid washing the surface for 7 days.

Recommended 2 to 3 coats.

Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.

If using more than one batch of the same colour, intermix before use

Why does condensation form in my home?
Condensation forms more easily on cold surfaces in the home, for example walls and ceilings. In some cases, those surfaces can be made warmer by improving the thermal insulation. In many cases, thermal insulation is not possible due to house configuration or cost of refurbishment. An efficient way of combating condensation is to cover walls and ceilings with a specially formulated anti-condensation paint and TruTherm anti condensation paint has been formulated using the latest technology of additives.

What is the difference between anti condensation paint and thermal anti condensation paint?
Anti-condensation paint and thermal anti-condensation paint both aim to prevent condensation issues, but they work in slightly different ways:

Anti-Condensation Paint:
Purpose: Anti-condensation paint is designed to stop damp problems caused by moisture from inside the property.
Function: It creates a layer of insulation on surfaces, reducing the formation of water droplets on walls. This type of paint is particularly useful in areas prone to high humidity, such as bathrooms, kitchens, or basements.
Effect: By improving the thermal performance of surfaces, it makes them less likely to retain moisture, preventing condensation and mold formation.
Limitations: While it helps reduce condensation, it cannot completely prevent mold growth. Good air circulation, adequate heating, and ventilation are still essential12.
Thermal Anti-Condensation Paint:
Purpose: Like anti-condensation paint, thermal anti-condensation paint aims to prevent condensation, but it focuses on thermal insulation.
Function: It absorbs and holds heat longer than standard emulsions. By doing so, it prevents condensation from forming on the surface of the wall, as the heat evaporates any moisture.
Effect: The improved thermal properties keep the wall warmer, reducing the risk of condensation.
Application: Use it in areas where standard paints might struggle due to constant high humidity and moisture levels.
Note: While it helps prevent condensation, it’s essential to address root causes (such as ventilation and heating) alongside using this paint for optimal protection32.
In summary, both types of paint serve similar purposes but approach the problem from different angles. Consider your specific needs and the environment when choosing between them. Remember that no paint can completely eliminate mould growth, so proper maintenance and ventilation remain crucial.
