This varnish has built in mildewcide to retard the growth of mold, mildew and fungus. It can withstand the expansion and contraction of weather changes that causes cracking and peeling. UV absorbers minimize fading from continual exposure to sunlight, rain and wind. Available in a Satin, Semigloss and Gloss finish, it flows on with brush or via HVLP sprayer and dries to a clear finish in 1 to 2 hours depending on temperature and humidity. Do not apply in temperatures below 60º F. For outdoor use, make sure that the stain underneath is also rated for outdoor exposure. It can be used over most water and solvent based stains. Test a hidden area for compatibility to be sure. Sand lightly with 320 or higher grit paper between coats. Cleans up with soap and water. Made in USA.
