Appearance and Application Tips:
The finish of Palatine Yacht Varnish is clear with a high gloss. While we advise it has a slight “straw” tint, our customers use it because of its clarity – browse the reviews for more details. With a good wet edge it is easy to apply by brush or roller but also by conventional or airless spray. We recommend a minimum of two coats of yacht varnish for maximum protection and always allow for the suggested time between coats (see directions for use above). This coating is touch dry in two hours and hard dry in 8 hours and can be used on hardwood, softwood, metals and other substrates (contact us if you are unsure). When applying an outdoor varnish or paint, avoid windy conditions which can blow dust and grit into your wet surface. For thinning and cleaning tools and equipment use Carbosolv White Spirit.

Proper surface preparation is essential for the success of any protective coating system. Before you begin ensure the area is free from any dust, oil, grease, old coatings and surface contaminants.
All surfaces to be painted should be clean, dry and free from loose and flaking material, dust, grease etc.
Rub down previously gloss painted surfaces with fine waterproof abrasive paper and rinse thoroughly.
Best results are obtained in warm (minimum 10°C), dry conditions.
Mix thoroughly for approximately 2 minutes using a drill stirrer. A wooden batten at least 25mm wide is also ideal.
Apply an even coat using a brush, short to medium pile roller on smooth surfaces.
For spray application by either airless or conventional spray a dilution ration of no more than 10% is recommended with Palatine White Spirit by volume applying thin coats allowing each one to dry before applying subsequent coats.
Once dried, a second coat can be applied at full strength. This will prolong the life and performance of the coating.
Thinning and Cleaning: Use Palatine White Spirit.
A minimum of two coats is recommended on bare wood to optimize the coatings performance.
