Description

Blackfriar Super Yacht Varnish protects all exterior wood and joinery from extreme climatic conditions. Designed for yachts and boats it provides superb durability, making it ideal for buildings which are exposed to poor weather conditions. It is extremely durable and tough.

Preparation

Ensure the surface to be varnished is clean, dry, sound and free from wax, oil or any other contamination. Bare wood should be sanded to a smooth surface, always working with the grain. Oily woods such as Teak or Iroko should be cleaned with white spirit prior to application. Any excess resinous deposits around knots should be scraped off and the area cleaned with white spirit. Sound, previously varnished surfaces should be cleaned then lightly sanded to provide a key. Remove dust.

Previously varnished surfaces in poor condition should be stripped back to bare wood using Blackfriar Professional Paint and Varnish Remover. Any French polish on surfaces must also be completely removed. Ensure new or bare timber is adequately preserved prior to applying wood finishes, apply Blackfriar Goldstar Clear Wood Preservative to untreated timbers where required.

Application

Stir thoroughly prior to use. The product may be applied by brush or spray. If applying by brush, apply evenly using light strokes following the grain of the wood. For best results 4 coats are recommended on new wood and 2-3 coats on previously varnished surfaces. Brush well into any joints and end grain with 2-3 coats to help prevent moisture ingress.

Prior to application of the final coat or if the overcoating time is exceeded lightly abrade with fine glass paper working with the grain and remove dust.

Thinning

Not required.

Limitations

Do not apply in wet or frosty conditions. Clear varnishes are not as durable as pigmented varnishes or stains. Exterior varnished surfaces should be inspected regularly and recoated at the first signs of weathering. Due to the expansion and contraction of wood, water may penetrate between joints and travel along the timber, discolouring and lifting the varnish. Damaged or peeling areas should be sanded back to sound wood and patch primed with Blackfriar Super Yacht Varnish, as for new wood, before varnishing the whole surface.

If using on yachts or boats, allow the varnish to dry for at least 24 hours before immersing in water.

Clean Up

Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before washing with white spirit. Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.
