Interlux perfection plus over teak oil

5 posts in this topic

I have just sanded some of my old, dry teak rails down to the bare wood. I like the color of newly oiled teak. Would it be smart to put interlux perfection plus over oiled teak? I would of course otherwise prep the wood per instructions. Any preference of interlux perfection plus v cetol marine gloss?

It's not recommended to put varnish over a teak oil and a two part varnish like Perfection Plus wouldn't work at all, it must go on bare wood.  Interlux Perfection Plus is a two part finish which is a lot harder finish than Cetol Gloss.  Also the Perfection has more UV protection than the Cetol Gloss which doesn't.

Mattle.

there are also Semco which is a teak sealant and comes in 3 different colors (Clear, Natural, Goldtone) it looks like dirty water and will absorb into the wood. Teak will look like new for a long time and it will required re-applying after a cupel of months depending how your weather is where you are.

good luck.

So is Interlux Perfection the best and highest rated finish over bare teak.  I have a 46ft with lots of teak which i have sanded bare.  Looking for longest lasting with a finish similar to teak oil.  Mike

Interlux Perfection Plus two part Polyurethane varnish is a very hard durable finish that typically will last longer than regular varnish finishes.  Awlgrip has Awlwood which is a primer then a topcoat varnish system that has been reported to last quite a long time, even in the Florida sun.
