Coo-Var Acrylic Varnish is a water based clear varnish for wood and other surfaces available in gloss or eggshell finishes. A good, quick drying and safer alternative to solvent based products. It is also ideal for coating existing paints such as emulsions.

Recommended Uses

  • Kitchen cabinets
  • Conservatory furniture
  • Bathroom cabinets
  • Indoor decking
  • Interior doors

Surface Preparation

All surfaces should be clean, dry, sound and free from contaminants. New wood should be sanded prior to coating to ensure an adequate "key" is produced. Existing painted surfaces should be cleaned, degreased and sanded to ensure an adequate "key" is produced. Remove all loose, flaking material and treat bare areas as new substrate then prepare accordingly.

Application Conditions

As dictated by normal good painting practice. In confined spaces, provide adequate ventilation
during application and drying. Do not paint when temperature will be at or below 7°C during the painting and drying process.

Subsequent Coat

Coo-Var Acrylic Varnish.

I’m making a snake enclosure, as this is low voc and water based it is good for the snake but is this a polyurethane product to make it waterproof ?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

This product is not a polyurethane and we do not have a product that is tested as animal safe.

If you are specifically looking for a polyurethane varnish you could consider Coo-Var Polyurethane Varnish, but both of these are for interior application only and are not a waterproof coating.

I have oak wooden worktops which have previously been treated with oil. I want to treat with acrylic varnish and appreciate the need to remove all previous treatments. Before using varnish should the area be treated with some sort of sealer/primer? Thanks

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Thank you for the enquiry, unfortunately we do not have a varnish we can recommend for application to a previously oiled timber.

questions daniel heaton on 2021-03-29 15:28:24

can you use this on interior brick work, or do you supply something else that would? thanks

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

No this product is for use on timber, for an invisible finish we'd recommend Hydron Mona-Guard Plus or for a wet look finish we'd recommend Hydron Mona-Guard Nhance.

Would this be suitable for sealing painted kitchen cupboards, the paint used was Valparaiso cabinet paint?

Answer from Rawlins’ Technical Team: 

Assuming the cabinets, any previous coatings are clean, dry, sound and prepared as detailed in the Technical Data Sheet, Coo-Var Acrylic Varnish can be used over existing paints on kitchen cabinets.

We would always recommend testing for compatability and adhesion prior to full application with any previously applied paints.
