Description Old Masters Exterior Oil-Based Spar-Marine Varnish is a durable exterior coating for use on wood surfaces. It contains ultraviolet absorbers for advanced sun protection. Use on exterior surfaces such as fences, railings, lawn furniture, doors, boats and marine surfaces. For interior use on windowsills and door frames for added ultraviolet protection. DO NOT USE on wooden decks or steps, wood siding, log homes or wood boats below water-line. As with all exterior clear finishes, this product will not offer unlimited protection against the elements. Surfaces which receive direct sunlight may have to be recoated annually to maintain gloss and to prevent cracking and peeling. Surface Preparation All surfaces must be clean, dry and free from dirt, wax, grease, glue and other contaminants or penetration and adhesion will be affected. Bare Wood Surfaces: Sand surface thoroughly with medium grit sandpaper and progress to fine grit sandpaper. Always sand in the direction of the wood grain. Remove dust with a tack rag. Previously Finished Wood: Surface should be sanded to remove imperfections and gloss, using extra fine sandpaper (220 grit), sanding with the grain. Remove dust with a tack rag. Stained Surfaces: Stain must be thoroughly dry before applying clear finish. Do not sand uncoated stained surface. Note: If a sealer is desired, we recommend Old Masters Penetrating Sealer. WARNING!
