What is a Varnish

Varnish is used as a finish or protective coat on wood because it is a very durable compound. It contains a high ratio of solids, and can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. It is applied using a brush and protects against ultraviolet rays which makes it very popular for patios, decks or boats. Varnish is also a commonly chosen finish for rustic kitchens on trim, hardwood flooring, or cabinetry, offering an old-fashioned look and clean shine that stands up over the test of time.
