Product Features

More than 15 years worth of field-tested research and feedback from boat owners around the world have resulted in the development of Bristol Finish - the finest exterior wood coating that is available today.

Classic AppearanceTeak handrail close-up
Unlike many of the current "low maintenance" coating products, there is no sacrifice in appearance for the sake of performance. 

Unmatched Durability
Bristol Finish is incredibly resistant to ultraviolet breakdown.  Gloss retention is outstanding, and it will not become brittle and crack or peel.  Designed to remain flexible, it withstands abrasion and impact damage better than anything else.  Bristol Finish is not affected by gasoline, diesel fuel, teak cleaners, battery acid and most common cleaning chemicals.

Fast Application
Bristol Finish is a catalyzed acrylic urethane system, and each coat can be applied from 1 to 24 hours apart, without sanding between coats.  Molecular cross-linking insures a perfect bond between coats.

Just think- you can finish your project in only one or two days, instead of taking 2 to 4 weeks to get the job done.

Easy to Use
Bristol Finish is very easy to measure and mix in either small or large amounts using a regular measuring cup.  There is a 6 hour pot life after mixing, so your working pace is comfortable and not rushed.  You can tailor the mixture to suit any type of weather condition, and work in temperatures from 30 to 120 degrees, and relative humidity of 0 to 100%.

Very Low MaintenanceTeak sportfishing cockpit
Bristol Finish will look good for 1 to 2 years without maintenance in southern latitudes such as Florida and the Caribbean, and up to 4 years in New England. When it's time for maintenance, all that is needed is to lightly sand, apply a topcoat, and enjoy the results for a few more years.

With proper care and very minimal maintenance, you should never need to completely strip or remove Bristol Finish.

Very Cost Effective
Bristol Finish will save you an incredible amount of money when compared to other coatings.  By eliminating the sanding between coats, you cut out 75% or more of the labor required during application.

However, the fast and easy application is only the first savings. With it's very low maintenance requirements, Bristol Finish will save you time and money year after year.
