Made from Tung Oil and a special resin that provides a satin finish that stands up to sun, salt and fresh water exposure.
When the gloss level begins to fade from sun/UV exposure, simply clean and re-coat the surface. Sanding down to bare wood is not necessary.
Applies easily with a China bristle brush, cloth, or roller. Sanding is not necessary between coats for adhesion purposes.
Coverage: 450-500 square feet per gallon per coat.
For exterior projects, use 2 coats Marine Sealer, followed by 2 coats of Marine Satin TB-6032, or
TB3940 Gloss Finish.
Uses: Waterlox Original Marine Satin Finish is specially made for boat decks, bright work and spars and for other heavy-duty exterior applications, such as exterior doors and garage doors.
Use as a finish coat for an exterior satin finish over 1-2 coats of Waterlox Marine Sealer or Waterlox Original Sealer / Finish. Not recommended for use on pressure treated woods.
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.
