What Is A Varnish?
While a woodstain penetrates into wood, a wood varnish is a transparent protective wood treatment that create a film on the timber to protect it from damage. Varnishes will harden on the surface on the wood while most often coming in a clear formulation that enhances the natural beauty of the wood. Due to the durability that a varnish offers they can be used on a range of interior and exterior wooden surfaces, especially furniture, doors & floors.
Why Use A Wood Varnish?
Wood varnish is perfect if you want to protect wood from scratches, chips and marking that will damage the surface. By creating a clear protective coating, wood varnish serves to protect and enhance wooden surfaces, while a woodstain and wood paint will alter the appearance and colour of the wood.
Is Wood Varnish Waterproof?Wood varnish offers waterproof protection to wooden surfaces which is why they can be used on exterior wood as well as interior wood. They are not water repellent like some coatings, but they do offer water protection for the timber, which is a highly porous surface that will absorb moisture if left untreated. This is what causes swelling, rotting and cracking of the wood.
