Equal in performance to Bona Mega, Manns Extra Tough Clear Polyurethane Varnish will enhance the wood grain and its natural colour. This Varnish can also be tinted using our compatible water-based wood dyes. These dyes will keep the varnish looking translucent, making it ideal for matching different woods or simply tinting the surface of the wood you are working on.
This product has anti-bacterial properties making it especially ideal for use on kitchen and bathroom floors and furniture. Can also be used on children's wooden toys.
Prior to applying Manns Extra Tough Clear Varnish, ensure that wooden surfaces are clean, dry, and free from any previous finishes such as waxes, old varnish or wood oils.
It is recommended that new wood is wiped down with a good quality white spirit to remove any grease, dirt and other contaminates from the surface of the wood. The prepared surface will then be ready for coating with Manns Extra Tough Clear Varnish.
Freshly sanded wood should be cleaned thoroughly to remove all traces of sanding dust, dirt and debris.
This product is very easy to apply with a brush or microfibre roller. Can also be sprayed through most electric spray systems as well as compressor based spray systems.
For interior surfaces such as doors, architraves, picture frames, chairs and other low wear areas, 2 coats of varnish will be sufficient. For higher traffic areas such as table tops 1 coat of Manns Classic Primer followed by 2 coats of varnish or alternatively, 3 straight coats of varnish.
Manns Extra Tough Clear Polyurethane Varnish can be cleaned on a day to day basis with Manns Surface Cleaner and a damp cloth or mop. varnished surfaces should never be cleaned with large amounts of water.
Clean off tools using warm water or methylated spirits before dry. If cleaning with warm water, a small amount of detergent can be used if required.
This product stores best when kept at temperatures above 4℃ and below 28℃. As with most water-based products, avoid temperatures below zero or the water content of the product will freeze. Keep container tightly closed and store in a well-ventilated area. If stored in the correct conditions, Mann's Extra Tough Clear Varnish will keep for at least a year
A medium coat of extra tough clear varnish will be touch dry within 1-2 hour, and can be recoated after 2 hours. We recommend a minimum curing time of 24 hours before using the surface as normal.
I refurbished our hard wood dining table and actually ended up applying 3 coats after the first sealer coat to achieve the super gloss glass finish.Used combination of roller and fine brush and very delighted with the results. Early days to know if it will with stand the wear and tear as it says it's a tough finish.
Re-varnished cabinet after staining. Nice satin finish.
This is the third time I have brought this product The colour is good and it covers well, A bottle of this goes a long way Been very pleased with the result Very shiny goes well with the Manns wood stain
Excellent. Will use again and again. Just take your time and use thin coats and let it build up slowly.
This product is very good No mess I use this with a spray gun job done
Absolutelly brill, love it ,defo I will buy again
Applied three coats with disposable sponge brush on maple and sycamore to retain natural colour of the wood and provide hard durable finish. Denibbed with 320 grade between coats, the lightest of touches. Happy bunny
I have only used this product for one job but I already rate it, its easy to use and gives a great finish.
Very durable finish easy to apply via spraying, I used a 1.5mm fluid tip and didn't need to thin the varnish. I'd recommend buying more than you think you need if spraying.
The best varnish I've ever used. Easy to apply, and produced a perfect finish.
I would highly recommend this product. We had purchased 11 oak doors and used this varnish to do 2 coats and were very pleased with the results. When we ran out of this varnish (it managed to cover 9 doors, I went to a local shop and bought a different brand (since they didn't carry Manns) and I was disappointed. The reason is that Manns was much easier to apply whereas the other one was thicker and the drips were harder to control. It was much easier and quicker to apply Manns and it leaves a beautiful finish. Just remember to sand very lightly in between applying the coats (as you would do anyway). I used the Manns finishing pad 180 grit.
Gives a really nice gloss finish to wood.
Great item. Safe secure delivery and great value. The results are brilliant
Good product to use, I purchased this sampler as an alternative to the Wax Oil, Having rang for some technical guidance on a very specific job ( treating old beams in a warehouse wharf that had also been treated with some weird fire retardant.... was unsure the wax oil would take, so following the discussion ordered a sample of the Manns have to say both worked very well. Will definitely use this product in the future where the plasterers have not been so messy ( the chalk plaster was dragged out of then beams grain to easily ) But great advice from the team !
An excellent varnish that brushes on cleanly and dries quickly. I bought the Matt finish which brings up the colour and grain of the wood without a gloss finish. Applied two coats that was enough of a finish for my doors. A 5 litre bottle is enough for two coats both sides of seven doors with enough left for just about another coat. Wife very pleased with the look and oak doors give a quality look to the passage.
I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this product was to apply and the finish is lovely and just what you expect 'satin' to be. I gave my furniture 4 coats with a light sand between the 2nd and third coat and both pieces look really good.
Bought this product to re varnish the bathroom floor, it was easy to apply and dried pretty quick between coats to leave a nice finish.
Easy to use, has brought out the grain on the wood very nicely. Would definitely use again
