PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Pettit Flagship Varnish

With 6 times more UV inhibitors, Flagship varnish offers the best protection against the sun's damaging rays. A special blend of phenolic and alkyd resins combined with tung and linseed oils offer excellent performance and a warm, light amber hue. Flagship Varnish contains an ultraviolet light filter in conjunction with a light stabilizer to screen the sun's damaging rays for longer life. Flagship Varnish has the highest build and film depth per coat, as well as excellent abrasion resistance and a high gloss finish.

Features:

  • Traditional warm, amber hue with outstanding gloss retention
  • Highest build and film depth per coat
  • Highest level of U.V. protection
  • Extremely durable finish
  • Easy to apply

When applying to bare wood, a minimum of four (4) coats is required, and when applying over existing varnish, a minimum of two (2) coats is required. Pettit Flagship Varnish should be applied in a slightly heavier coat of up to 4 wet-mils. Coats should be allowed to dry overnight before sanding or recoating.

  • For new work on open grained wood such as mahogany, oak, ash, ect. The use of Pettit or Z-Spar Paste Wood Filler Stain is required to achieve a smooth finish. Let dry overnight.
  • For new work on close grained woods such as pine, maple, spruce, ect. The use of Pettit or Z-Spar Paste Wood Filler Stain is not normally required.
  • Apply a generous covering coat of Pettit 2018 Clear Sealer and let it dry overnight. Sand thoroughly with 220 grit sandpaper.
  • On especially rough or porous wood, a second coat of 2018 Clear Sealer may be applied. If applied, sand the second coat as well and wipe the surface clean with a tack rag or rag dampened with Pettit 120 Brushing Thinner.
  • Apply at least 4 coats of Z-Spar 1015 Flagship Varnish. Let each coat dry overnight, sand with 220 grit sandpaper, and clean off sanding residue with a tack rag before applying the next coat.
