APPLICATION AND USE
Preparation PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES
In Good Condition: Wash down with a suitable detergent, rinse with fresh water and allow to dry. Abrade with 320-400 grade (grit) paper.
In Poor Condition Remove all previous coatings and prime the substrate.
BARE WOOD Sand smooth with 120 grit paper, followed by 240 and finally 320 grit paper. Remove sanding dust by brushing, dusting and wiping. If wiping with solvent then allow to dry completely before applying the first coat. Prime, if required, with Clear Wood Sealer Fast Dry.
If Clear Wood Sealer has been omitted thin the first coat by 20-25% with Thinner No.9.
OILY WOODS e.g. Teak Must be adequately degreased (Thinners No.9 is recommended) and prepared prior to application of Perfection Plus Varnish. Ensure the surface is completely dry before applying the first coat. Sand areas that are loose or flaking with 320 grade (grit) paper.
Method It is recommended that sanding residue is removed prior to overcoating. The use of tack rags and a reputable Wipe Down Solvent can help achieve the required level of cleanliness.
BARE WOOD: Thin the first coat by 25% using recommended thinner. Then apply a minimum of 4 full coats.
Alternatively apply a minimum of 4 coats of Clear Wood Sealer (first coat thinned by 25%). Then apply a minimum 2 coats of Perfection Plus Varnish.
Hints Mixing Stir individual products prior to mixing. Mix the base and curing agents of Perfection Plus Varnish together at the specified mix ratio. Add curing agent to the base, stir and leave for 10 minutes to allow bubbles to disperse. Avoid using direct from the can. Mix the amount you expect to use in a separate container.
Note: Any initial cloudiness will disappear upon thorough mixing.
Thinner YTA006 Thinners No.9
Thinning Mix base and curing agent first and then thin as required. Thin first coat 20-25% when applied direct to bare wood. Thin other coats as required.
Cleaner YTA006 Thinners No.9
Conventional Spray Do not spray.
Roller Use foam rollers. For best results when applying by roller, smooth off with a pad or brush.
Other When applying Perfection Plus Varnish by brush or roller, it may be necessary to apply multiple coats to achieve the total specified system dry film thickness.
Some Important Points Apply in dry, well ventilated conditions. Best applied at ambient temperatures of between 15°C and 20°C. Sensitive to moisture during application. Avoid relative humidity levels above 80%. Avoid applying late in the evening as condensation can cause a loss of gloss during overnight cure. Do not apply in direct sunlight. Use above the waterline only.

Number of Coats 2 - 5 (First coat thinned).Over bare wood apply 1 thinned coat (25%) + minimum 4 full coats, apply 2 full coats over Clear Wood Sealer Fast Dry.
The number of coats should be increased if applied by roller.
