Epifanes Varnish Woodfinish Gloss


Epifanes woodfinish is the perfect companion for oily woods such as teak and Iroko. The varnish remains breathable and therefore prevents lifting of the product from the surface, a scenario that is often experienced when using non breathable finishes on woods such as this.
