Cetol maintenance coat
Having read the cetol blurb I'm not sure if I have to sand lightly, scuff with a scotchbrite, wash with boatsoap or simply wipe down with 216.
Anybody been there done that with good results?
Maintaining wood surfaces coated with Cetol Marine products generally requires little effort if regular
inspections are made, if any problem areas are attended to right away, and if the maintenance coats are
routinely applied. If the coating is allowed to weather beyond the regular maintenance period of one year,
returning the surface to excellent condition will be more difficult. Regular attention is necessary for longterm
performance of Cetol Marine products.
Before application of a maintenance coat of Cetol, clean the entire surface with Interlux® All-Purpose
Boat Soap to remove any surface contaminants as per instructions on label. If mildew is present, use
Interlux Premium Teak Restorer with a nylon scuffing pad, as per instructions on label. Be sure to rinse
the wood well with clean water to remove surface dirt and allow to dry thoroughly. Cetol Marine Gloss
should be sanded to a dull finish using 220-320 grit sandpaper. Remove all dust before applying the
maintenance coat of Cetol Marine, Cetol Marine Light, Cetol Marine Natural Teak or Cetol Marine Gloss.
