MinWax Spar Varnish Gloss

Has anyone any experience of MinWax varnish as half the price of Epifanes and Interlux. Good land based reviews!

Re: MinWax Spar Varnish Gloss

We were long-time users of MinWax. But, formulas change. We've found it's not what it used to be.

Another consideration is your time - it takes a LOT of work to varnish. Use the best product for your project.



Exterior: We switched from Interlux Perfection to Awlwood. Awlwood is certainly easier to apply than the 2 part Perfection. But it's looking like our older Perfection is doing better than our newer Awlwood.



Interior: Epifanes is the choice of most. For wear places like our cabin sole, we are using Daly's Profin. It's what Hunter used to use when they had real wood on the floors. It's insanely easy to apply, it can be hot coated, it flows really well, it's cheap, it can be recoated quickly if it wears, and most importantly, it has nonslip properties when wet.

Re: MinWax Spar Varnish Gloss

The Minwax Pro Series Spar Urethane has been working well for me for over six months in the intense sun / rain in the southern Florida tropics, as shown in this topic on my teak table.
