Need info on resistovar varnish

missy_d1July 27, 2007

I got a amish made kitchen table a couple years ago. The finish is resistovar varnish ( a valspar product?). Over time white areas have developed on the surface of the table. Is this due to moisture or heat? These white areas sand out with very fine sandpaper. I would like to lightly sand the entire table surface and put another coat of varnish on it. There is nothing called resistovar varnish on the shelves of the home improvement stores. Could I use another type of varnish, spar varnish or perhaps polyurethane?

Thanks

Missy

You will not find Resistovar on the home improvement shelves because it's not a DIY product. I am not familiar with that product in particular, but many conversion finishes will not take a top coat well -- there will be adhesion problems, even with the same finish outside a specific "recoat window."

Moisture can cause areas of white "blushing" Heat helps drive it into the finish. Often it can be removed without stripping or recoating.
