Subject: Compatibility of CPES with Cetol
Date: Wed, 12 Sep 2007
Dear Rot Doctor,
I wasn’t able to find anything on your Q&A page regarding the use of
Cetol over teak primed with CPES. I know you say varnish is OK but I
was thinking of using Cetol. By the way, this is the first time I’ve
used CPES and it’s a great product. My fiberglass sailboat (built in
Taiwan) is covered with weathered teak and I’m busy trying to restore
it. Several of my friends here have seen what I’ve done so far and
ordered it as well.
There are several Cetol products. You are most likely talking about
Cetol Marine. If so, the answer would be no, our CPES is not compatible
with Cetol Marine. If you want to use this product, you would need
to start with bare wood, and follow the manufacturer instructions.
