Appearance, performance and ease of use are the most important considerations for marine wood coatings, and Bristol Finish is clearly the best choice. This tough acrylic urethane is the most beautiful, durable and most cost effective exterior wood coating that is available today.
Rated “Excellent” by both Practical Sailor and Powerboat Reports, Bristol Finish has more than 10 times the UV resistance, and greater than 100 times the abrasion resistance of regular varnish or other single-part coatings.
A fast, easy application is the hallmark of Bristol Finish. Sanding is not required between coats, and each coat may be applied at about one hour intervals. Just think- you can finish your project in 1 or 2 days, not a “month of Sundays”!
Unlike many “low-maintenance” coatings, there’s no muddy appearance to live with. Bristol Finish is available in Traditional Amber to match the beautiful look and transparency of traditional marine spar varnish, and Classic Clear for interior use. Both are available in a high gloss or satin finish. The beauty and detail of the wood grain is not hidden by heavy pigment.
