Both Ronseal and Dulux sell a solvent based polyurathane clear varnish.
On the Dulux website they say their polyurathane is a 'trade' varnish.
Is there anything to choose between the Ronseal and Dulux products? What
I'm looking for is the hardest wearing matt finish that is fairly easy to
apply. It's for a table top surface.
Grateful for any advice on which is the best product to go for. Thanks.
Can't comment on either of the above; however, since you are in the
UK, take a look at Epifanes, available at marine chandeliers.
This is a favorite of the marine industry and while it contains UV
inhibitors for exterior service and you have an indoor application,
Then don't use polyurethanes, use an acid-cure formaldehyde resin.
This is harder and clearer, with much less yellow to it. Rustin's Bar-
top is the well-known UK one. This is heatproof too, and they also do
it for floors as Floorcoat without the heat-resistance. That works on
It's a two-part, but easy to work with (it's not epoxy). Stinks when
applied, but this dissipates after a couple of hours. It's very quick
to work - hard in a few hours.
It comes in gloss and semi-matt. If you want it duller, then let it
harden and 0000 wire wool it a day or two later.
Rustins Liquid Plastic. According to the datasheet on their site, it is
still the good old flammable toluene formulation but, on the Axminster
site, is is shown in a plastic container. I'm sure it always used to
come in a metal can.
