Manns Extra Tough Varnish can 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.

Sheen level increases with additional coats, i.e. 3 coats of Matt will achieve a higher sheen level than 2 coats.

Please Note: We recommend Manns Extra Tough Floor Varnish for any hard or softwood flooring, and for commercial grade protection on flooring Manns Extra Tough Pro Floor Varnish.

Ensure that wooden surfaces are clean, dry, and free from any previous finishes such as waxes, old varnish or wood oils prior to applying Manns Extra Tough Interior Varnish.

  • It is recommended that new wood is wiped down with a good quality white spirit to remove any grease, dirt and other contaminants from the wood surface
  • Freshly sanded wood should be cleaned thoroughly to remove all traces of sanding dust, dirt and debris

Always apply a test coat before starting any project to test compatibility and consistency of the final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times.

  1. Manns Extra Tough Interior Varnish can be applied with a brush, microfibre roller or spray applied through most electric and compressor-based spray systems
  2. For interior surfaces such as doors, architraves, picture frames, chairs and other low wear areas, 2 coats of varnish will be sufficient
  3. For higher traffic areas, such as table tops, 1 coat of Manns Extra Tough Primer followed by 2 coats of varnish should be applied, or alternatively 3 straight coats of varnish

Regular Cleaning

Wooden surfaces coated with Manns Extra Tough Interior Varnish can be cleaned on a day to day basis with a damp, lint-free cloth or mop (for wooden floors). For marks and scuffs use a dedicated wood cleaner. Varnished surfaces should never be saturated with large amounts of water, as this can damage the finish.

Does what it says on the tin by Nicola Marriott

Was having trouble with the chalk paint I was using on our kitchen cabinets - it kept peeling /scratching off when knocked. Used this varnish which has not only stopped the paint chipping off but has left a nice finish to the cabinets which looks great. It's easy to put on and dries fairly quickly. Would recommend - will be buying more for the next lot of furniture we do up!

Fantastic product by David Haydon

A great product. We needed several coats of this on our basin unit to protect from watermarks and drops (4) and we still have plenty left to use on other things if needed.

Wonderful finish and so easy to use by Susan Cason

I have been painting and decorating for over 50 years, starting in my teens- - -an amateur but with art college background. I found Manns extra tough satin varnish a pleasure to use, easy to apply and did exactly what it said it would- - - a beautiful pitch pine bathroom floor with satin varnish, which has brought out the grain of the wood wonderfully. I'm delighted and would recommend this product to anyone.

Go's on well using a sponge brush, the more coats the better the finish.
