Detailed Description

Waterlox Original High Gloss

Waterlox has served generations of floor installers, turners, carvers, and furniture makers as a reliable, easily applied tung-oil-based varnish. Polymerized tung oil, ester gum, polymerized linseed oil, and a high ratio of phenolic resin allow it to build a tough surface film which resists scuffs and staining admirably. Apply by wiping, brushing, rolling, spaying or (on flooring) with lambswool pad; thin and clean up with mineral spirits or turpentine. Waterlox is tack-free and ready to recoat in 6-24 hours dependent on temperature, humidity and ventilation. Repair is easy: sand out the damage and recoat! Coverage is around 450 square feet per gallon per coat; soft woods require more coats than very hard woods. Waterlox is an excellent choice when you require the toughness and sheen of a varnish without the peculiarly plastic look of polyurethane.

VOC Restrictions

Some areas of the US restrict the amount of Volatile Organic Compounds(VOC) in architectural coatings packaged larger than one quart. (See the list below for affected areas.)

Areas with 350 g/L Limit

  • Arizona (Maricopa County)
  • California (Except for SCAQMD area - Orange County, Los Angeles, San Bernardino County, Riverside County)
  • Delaware
  • District of Columbia
  • Illinois
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • New Hampshire
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • Virginia (Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William & Stafford Counties; Cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas, Manassas Park & Fredericksburg)

In areas with the 350 g/L limit, you will need to use Waterlox Low VOC finishes. At this time, Waterlox High Gloss is not available in a Low VOC formula.

Note: Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino & Orange counties in California are in the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) which has tighter restrictions on VOCs. In this area, neither standard nor low VOC Waterlox finishes are permitted. You should probably consider using water based finishes such as our Hydrocote finishes.
