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.
Original is a traditional spar varnish that combines ease of application with good gloss and durability.
Original is a phenolic resin varnish that contains ultra-violet filters. Ease of use and traditional golden color make Original an ideal choice for use on interior and exterior woodwork such as cabin trim, handrails and coamings.
