Protecting An Outdoor Wood Table

 best option for outdoors

 

Minwax (tm) oil stain - left to dry for 2 weeks - 2 coats ESP 155 epoxy sealer and primer - 4 coats of India Spar Varnish (note ESP 155 and Varnish not for sale in California)

 

Here is a plan for its best long term use outside (similar to treatment of wooden sailboat masts the stay up for years).


 
1) Seal - prime and protect all surfaces with our  clear epoxy sealer, ESP 155 - one or two coats. This will waterproof and seal the wood, providing a stable surface for the coatings to follow. Not for sale in southern California.

- A top problem solving coating - best seller

 

2) If a thicker smoother epoxy base is desired (the ESP 155 puts down a very thin layer of resin), brush on a few coats of BASIC NO BUSH MARINE EPOXY. This is a clear, thin epoxy, but like all epoxies it will yellow outside. It needs step 3 or 4 to protect it from UV yellowing damage.


3) Use marine India Spar Varnish over  the ESP 155  or BASIC NO BUSH MARINE EPOXY covered wood surfaces. This provides UV protection, a 'warm' feel and some coating thickness. Our "warm tone dye' can be added to the varnish to darken it a small amount for a richer and darker finish. Use several coats. Varnish can be smoothed and waxed to a mirror like finish. Note: this is the old fashion varnish, not polyurethane. Not for sale in California.

 
4) Optional Step:  Our Acrylic Poly UV Plus is a two part clear poly very similar to auto clear coat (not for sale in California -  best sprayed but can be brushed) that then goes over the ESP 155 epoxy primer and/or the fresh varnish. Apply a few thin coats (thin coats much better then thicker coats due to the solvents involved). Not for sale in California.

"I bought some ESP 155 as a prime coat and used your India Marine Spar Varnish on top - unbelievably good! Forty year old mahogany seats in my dingy look as good as the brand new gunwales. Not sure how well it projects on the camera - dark basement- but looks so, so good!" John 1/15

Hi, I train spray painters in Queensland Australia the technical aspects of Polyurethane paint. However some people just can’t get the difference of the two major types. Polyester vs Acrylic. I would like to use your excellent discussion paper in my training as an unbiased view and give credit to author Paul Oman and your company. http://www.epoxyproducts.com/lpu.html
