Application Method

Stir Quick Dry Polyurethane Varnish thoroughly before use. Apply two or more coats of varnish evenly, by brush along the grain paying particular attention to the end grain. Do not overlap the brush strokes. On bare or new wood the first coat can be thinned with up to 10% clean water, followed by two further coats of undiluted varnish. Sand down lightly between coats. Do not apply when temperature is below 10˚C. This product is not suitable for application over ferrous metal.

Note: Quick Dry Polyurethane Varnish is naturally milky in appearance when wet. This will disappear when completely dry. The final colour will depend on the original colour of the wood and the number of coats applied. It is advisable to test for colour in an inconspicuous area first.
