Colortone Deck Varnish is a lead-free, UV protective, rapid drying, water-based, easy to apply exterior wooden deck coating for softwood. Protect your wooden decks from the sun’s harsh ultraviolet rays, rainwater, and heavy foot traffic.

Pro tip: For best drying results, apply Deck Varnish in the early morning, or late afternoon hours when the wooden deck surface temperature is cooler. *Not recommended for cracked and weathered softwood

Wooden deck preparation:
  • Remove existing coatings from the wooden surface with Colortone Super Paint Stripper or by sanding
  • Using a conventional sander, ensure your wooden deck is properly sanded down
  • Wash the surface thoroughly to remove all dust, dirt and oil and allow to dry
  Deck Varnish application:
  • Stir the Colortone Deck Varnish contents well before use
  • Use a paintbrush or roller to apply Deck Varnish
  • For your first coat of Deck Varnish, dilute with 10% water
  • Thereafter apply two undiluted coats of Deck Varnish to ensure the deck is sealed all around
  • Pro tip: For optimal results, we recommend you give your wooden deck a light sanding in between each coat.
  • Clean brush or roller with water
  • Approx. drying time is 2 hours at 25 degrees Celsius (weather dependent)
  • Approx. surface coverage is 8-10m2 per litre depending on the type of wood
