Timbercote Varnish


Timbercote is designed for use on all marine bright work.
Can be successfully applied to teak provided strict de-oiling measures are observed
May be used to upgrade existing sound varnish systems
Can be applied over prepared timber sealed with 421 Epoxy Timber Sealer or 421 Epoxy Resin
Is ideal for solid timber doors
Note : it is essential that a sufficient number of coats of Timbercote are applied in order to lay up an adequate level of UV absorber to protect the timber surface
A minimum of five (5) coats is recommended for exterior exposure
Timbercote is formulated to be applied at 30-40 microns – DO NOT overbuild any individual coat within the system.
It is recommended that Timbercote be thinned up to 50% by volume to aid levelling, film thickness control and rapid through-hardening.
