Rustins Quick Dry Outdoor Clear Varnish is a durable water-based acrylic varnish, which gives a long-lasting protection to all external wood and is touch dry in 30 minutes and re-coatable in four hours.

Ideal for exterior use with doors and windows, garden furniture, conservatories and sealant over concrete. The varnish is low odour, non-yellowing and resists cracking, peeling and blistering. It has very little effect on the colour of the timber that it is applied to making it suited to exterior joinery.

During preparation, surfaces must be clean, dry and free of wax, grease and contaminants. Fill large cracks, open joints and damaged areas with a high quality flexible filler. Wash oily woods, knots or resinous areas with white spirit. Remove mould, lichens, algae and moss with brush, scraper and domestic bleach, then rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. Rustins Wood Dye may be applied to bare wood prior to varnishing.

Apply liberally with a synthetic brush, finishing with the grain. The first coat may be diluted with water on hot days (up to 15%). Do not apply to hot surfaces or in strong sunlight if possible or if rain is likely.

Rustins Quick Dry Outdoor Clear Varnish can be applied in three coats and lightly sand after the first coat if there is raising of the grain. Touch dry 30 minutes. On hot days may be touch dry within 10 minutes. Re-coating may take place within a minimum of four hours, depending on temperature & humidity.

Coverage is approximately 12-15sq.m per litre, 1 coat, depending on absorbency of surface.
