9938 Armor Var Elite Formaldehyde Free Catalyzed Varnish

9938 Armorvar Elite

Product Description

Woodwright 9938 Armor Var Elite Formaldehyde Free Catalyzed Varnish has very low odor and virtually no eye and nose burn effect compared to other catalyzed varnishes on the market. A fantastic build in 2 coats. Lays out nicely and hangs well on vertical surfaces. It contains and produces no formaldehyde, which leaves almost no odor during assembly, installation, and upon delivery. Extremely durable against chemicals, heat and moisture after full cure. And, of course, that signature silky Woodwright feel.
