Wood Care Systems
Wood has a beauty that good maintenance will enhance and protect. Interlux has several systems for caring for the wood on your boat. All of the systems will provide a barrier to protect your boat against the elements which attack the surface during the season - sea, sun, rain and wind while enhancing the natural appearance of the wood.
Varnishes provide excellent protection for the wood on your boat while allowing the natural beauty of the wood to show through. Varnishes are made up of five specific ingredients: oil, resin, solvent, dryers and additives. The combination of these five determines a varnish's performance.
Interstain serves two purposes: it fills the grain of the wood; and stains the wood enhancing its natural beauty.
Interstain is a thick paste before using. It must be mixed with Brushing Liquid 333 to the consistency of thick house paint.
| ||Using Paste Wood Filler Stain |
| ||Interlux® Interstain Paste Wood Filler and Stain fills the grain of the wood so that the number of coats of varnish can be reduced and it stains the wood to enhance its natural beauty. |
|1 ||Surface Preparation: Wood surface must be clean and dry. If bleaching has been necessary be sure to neutralize surface prior to application of any paint product. |
|2 ||Sand with 80-grit production sandpaper. Wipe with Brushing Liquid 333 to remove sanding residue. |
|3 ||Reduce stain with Brushing Liquid 333 to a consistency of heavy house paint. (NOTE: Excessive thinning will produce a stain only - not filling qualities). |
|4 ||Apply filler stain by brush, with the grain. After the stain appears to flatten (5-10 minutes), wipe across grain with burlap pad until surface appears uniform. Use cloth moistened with Brushing Liquid 333 to even out any streaking that may have developed. |
|5 ||When dry (4-6 hours), sand lightly to remove fuzz caused by grain swelling. |
|6 ||Apply 4-6 coats of varnish. |
