I suggest to get acquainted with these paints and varnishes, consider all its main properties and possible applications.

Yacht varnish - it is sturdy and weatherproof paint
What is a coating
As you can guess from the name, Yachting varnish is a paint material for sea and river vessels. The composition is used for both internal and for external machining housings, which indicates its high performance.
Yacht varnish for treatment of ship hulls
In the production of this coating manufacturers emphasize the durability and strength. Therefore, it is made on the basis of toxic components, such as:
- Toluene. It is a benzene volatile compound that can cause serious harm to human health. Moreover, the danger is that the toluene slowly evaporated and long;
- Xylene. Benzene complex which is more toxic than toluene. Unlike the latter, it is not only absorbed through the lungs, but also through the skin, resulting in causing the disorder of the nervous system and all kinds of serious illnesses, including cancer.
Therefore, this material can not be used for interior applications. However, in recent years there have been several different coatings that manufacturers label as a varnish for yachts. And not all of them have such a toxic compound.
Alkyd varnish after the application for a long time produces toxins
types of varnish
Currently, the sale of yacht varnish meets the following types:
alkyd. It is very popular due to its low cost. In the manufacture of these compositions, organic solvents are used, as a rule - white spirit.
Alkyd paints can not be used for interior applications. After application the solvent evaporates first and then evaporate xylene, and toluene, are then allocated less volatile compounds.
As a result, alkyd film releases chemicals during the whole period of its operation, which is about 5-7 years;
Urethane alkyd varnish can be used for interior and exterior use
Urethane alkyd. This composition is specially designed for application indoors and outdoors. Due to the presence of urethane plasticizers, chemicals vaporize at a much lesser degree, and can not cause harm to health.
Another feature of this coating is the increased flexibility and resistance to temperature extremes;
Urethane alkyd varnish is harmless to health only after application. Therefore, when working with them with their own hands is necessary to observe safety measures - to ensure ventilation of the room, and use personal protective equipment.

- Durability. It serves more than 5-10 years, even in adverse conditions;
- Resistance to chemicals. Composition fears neither acids nor alkalis, or salts thereof.
Disadvantages. The main disadvantage of the lacquer coating is toxic, it is true, as we discovered, this does not affect all types of material.
Any kind of the yacht varnish can be processed garden furniture
As I mentioned above, yacht varnish designed primarily for courts, but in recent years it has found application in everyday life. In particular, it can be used for the following purposes:
- For furniture. Furniture inside the housing can be covered only urethane-alkyd or acrylate lacquer. For garden furniture can be used alkyd paint material.
Toluene and xylene are lighter than air, so in the open air by evaporation of toxins quickly rise up and pose no threat to humans.
- Treatment of floors. It is best to use a special yacht varnish for floor or urethane alkyd composition;
Urethane-alkyd lacquer coating can be used for floor
- Processing facades. You can use any type of coating.
Despite the fact that some types of Yachting varnish can be used for sex, for these purposes is still expedient to apply a special paint material hardwood. It is more resistant to abrasive abrasion. But for the wooden facade Yachting varnish - it is a great choice.
