Interlux releases varnish guide

It’s touted as everything you wanted to know about varnish.

Interlux produced a guide to help boat owners understand the most common applications for varnish and offer advice for do-it-yourself brightwork.

“Varnishes have always been considered a mysterious blend of black art and science,” Interlux marketing manager Jim Seidel said in a statement. “Generally, varnishes are made up of five specific ingredients — oil, resin, solvent, driers and ultraviolet additives — but only the right combination of all five ingredients results in a varnish's optimal performance.”

The new Varnish Guide features a section, written by Ralph Naranjo, technical editor for Practical Sailor, on techniques boatyard professionals use to apply varnish.

“Varnish work needs to be savored rather than simply endured,” Seidel said. “There’s a lot of pride in being able to transform a blistered, peeling finish into a lustrous display of woodwork. Professionals develop this talent through careful guidance and years of repetition. We’re fortunate to have Ralph aboard to help the rest of us learn the steps involved and the ideas behind quality varnish work.”
