PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Pettit Hi-Build Marine Varnish with U.V. Filter

High Build Varnish 2056 is a high performance varnish designed to be built up to many coats for a deep, rich, mirror-like finish. The phenolic resin combined with tung and linseed oils increase the depth of gloss with each coat. Hi-Build Varnish contains an ultraviolet light filter in conjunction with a hindered amine light stabilizer to screen the sun’s damaging rays for longer life. A good varnish for building up multiple coats quickly.
