Waterlox Marine Satin Finish
$89.00 / Gallon
Preparation of Surfaces
Apply to a small test area and allow to dry prior to applying to the entire surface. Final color effect is always influenced by the grain, texture, porosity, species of wood, number of coats and by method of application.
Strip previously finished surfaces to bare wood. Where not possible to strip all wood, Waterlox Original Marine Sealer can be used as a primer / tie-coat. If the previous finish is a urethane or unknown, the finish must be abraded before application. Sand the surface well and wipe clean with a tack cloth or cloth dampened with paint thinner.
Application methods include lambswool, brush, roller, cloth, or spray. For exterior porch floors or decks, we recommend using a lambswool applicator to apply the finish. To smooth out bubbles in the surface, you can follow up with a china bristle brush. Be sure to apply the finish with the grain of the wood.
Sanding between coats is not necessary for adhesion purposes, for aesthetic reasons, you can perform a light sanding with fine sandpaper, steel wool (#4/0) or synthetic abrasive.
Staining with Waterlox
Stain can be added to your first coat of Waterlox Original Marine Sealer. You can add up to 1 quart of oil-based stain to 1 gallon of Waterlox Original Marine Sealer (4:1 ratio). We recommend you use an old-fashioned oil-based stain (without additives such as urethane). Test the stain mixture as well as the subsequent coats of Waterlox Original Finishes before applying to the entire surface.
