Waterlox

Post by Bill Edmundson » Thu Jul 26, 2018 9:15 am

His anybody ever used this product? It has been around forever. It's non-toxic and comes in a marine version. A friend of mine, who just sold his very successful industrial equipment business, highly recommended it.

The only problem is that it air cures. Pour what you think you'll need. Then the left over needs to be repackaged or add marbles until the can is full again. I just ordered some to try.

I have heard of Waterlox being used on furniture, but never tried it.
Where are you thinking of using it?

Pretty darn expensive stuff. What is better about it that would make me want to switch from tried and true (and less expensive) marine brands like Interlux and Pettit?

Waterlox has a marine line, also. It kind of sounds like a thick spar.

I told my friend that I would give it a try.

I've used Waterlox for furniture, excellent for a rubbed out finish. No experience on the marine side. Tom

This stuff is common mineral spirits, Tung oil, phenolic resins and a few other things. One coat of the prime sealer, two on softwoods, and two top coats 24 hour drying time. No sanding unless you just want to. A light sanding and cleaning for touch-up coat. For a quick touch-up just Tung oil.

That is what I'm thinking about right now. I'm not committed yet. Maybe, I should be.

It sounds similar to the Watco finish I use on the teak of my plastic boat.
