Bristol Finish Traditional Amber Urethane is recommended for exterior marine use.
The concept and development of Bristol Finish Traditional Amber Urethane originated over 20 years ago, when company founders grew frustrated with trying to keep a varnish finish on antique and classic yachts in the tropics. They thought that there must be a better way than constant refinishing every three months.
The labor required took forever - one coat per day, and the weather never cooperated.
A chemical engineer with a passion for antique wood yachts, and life in the tropics - with lots of frustration, not to mention a bit of laziness, led to many years of experimentation and testing.
The result? The finest exterior wood coating that is available today - Bristol Finish Traditional Amber Urethane.
Fast, Easy Application
No sanding between coats
1 hour or so between coats
Molecular cross-linking insures a perfect bond between coats, and eliminates hours of sanding labor. Just think- finish your project in one or two days, not 2 to 4 weeks! Classic Appearance
Unlike many "low maintenance" coating products, there's no sacrifice in appearance for the sake of performance. Traditional Amber Urethane is completely transparent, and looks exactly like varnish. Unmatched Durability, Very Low Maintenance
Designed to hold up on unshaded, horizontal surfaces where other marine products fail prematurely, Traditional Amber Urethane is:
10X more UV resistance than ordinary varnish
100X more abrasion resistance than ordinary varnish
Not affected by gasoline, diesel fuel or cleaning chemicals
Traditional Amber Urethane has the highest level of UV resistance that is possible to achieve in a transparent coating. The gloss retention is outstanding, and it will not become brittle, crack or peel. It's abrasion resistance is better than any other coating.
Traditional Amber Urethane will look good for 1 to 2 years without maintenance in the Caribbean, and up to 4 years in New England. When it's time for maintenance, all that's needed is to lightly sand, apply a topcoat, and enjoy the results for a few more years. Very Cost Effective
Bristol Finish Traditional Amber Urethane will save you time and money compared to other coatings. The fast and easy application is only the first savings. With very low maintenance needed, it will pay for itself year after year.
