Cetol Marine Gloss is a durable clear gloss protective wood finish,
developed as a topcoat for Cetol Marine, Cetol
Marine Light and now Cetol Marine Natural
Teak. Cetol Marine Gloss provides a high gloss,
hard wearing, UV protection and an easy to

appearance is preferred on top of Cetol Marine,
Cetol Marine Light and Cetol Marine Natural
Teak. Do not use on decks.
Cetol® Marine is an easy to apply, low
maintenance alternative to oils and varnishes. Cetol is formulated with synthetic pigments to protect the wood from exposure to UV and keep it
looking beautiful with the least maintenance necessary.
It is flexible, resistant to impact damage and abrasion it allows for natural expansion and contraction of wood.
How is Cetol® Marine Different?
Cetol Marine contains synthetic transparent iron oxide pigments, which shield the wood against
sunlight. This effectively protects the wood’s lignin, a key component in its strength, which is degraded by exposure to UV. It is these pigments that give Cetol Marine its attractive appearance.
Cetol Marine durable surface film protects the
wood from the elements and marine
environment. It has excellent weathering
properties and, importantly, is flexible. This characteristic means that its protective shell is
very resistant to impact damage and abrasion, and allows for natural expansion and contraction of wood.
Cetol Marine is microporous, allowing the wood to breathe. This helps to keep the moisture content of the wood stable as it allows it to
escape from the wood. It also means it may be applied to wood with a higher moisture content (up to 18%) compared to varnish application.
Cetol Marine penetrates the surface of the wood on application, providing long-term water repellence and protecting the wood from water damage.
Cetol Marine is formulated to a lower viscosity
than most varnishes. This allows excellent wood penetration, easy and rapid application of coats and superb flow and leveling preventing the need
for sanding between coats.
This, combined with its quick drying, makes it a really easy-to use. Cetol Marine is formulated for use on all marine woods, and is particularly
suitable for tropical hardwoods like teak.
