We’ve got exciting news – Linitop woodstains and varnishes are coming to the UK!

We’re now distributing across the UK and to celebrate we’re giving our loyal Owatrol customers 30% off EVERYTHING!

Some customers might be aware that Owatrol is a company in the The Durieu family group. Founded in 1923, Durieu creates and distributes decorative paints, maintenance products, wood and metal protection products across the world. Linitop is another brand within that group and is well established across continental Europe. It is a leading provider of high quality wood stains and varnishes.

We’re excited to be launching this amazing brand in the UK in order to expand the existing range. If you’ve been looking for wood stains or varnishes at the same quality level as the coatings solutions from Owatrol, then we’ve got just what you need.

On top of this, you’ll be dealing with the same Owatrol team you know. With our commitment to great customer service, our product and industry knowledge and, for some of the Linitop range, our great next day delivery. This will be expanding to the whole range over time as the brand grows in the UK.

The leading line up

Linitop Classic Acryl

It’s currently available in 6 of our most popular coloured finishes. It is microporous and water repellent with a highly flexible film. Linitop Classic Acryl is long lasting and provides high UV and weather resistance with minimal maintenance.

If you prefer a solvent-based wood stain, you can choose Linitop Classic which is available in 14 colours.

Linitop Primer & Finish

Linitop Primer-and-Finish-1LLinitop Primer & Finish is a multi-purpose semi-transparent penetrating woodstain. It includes both primer and topcoat with a matt sheen finish and is suitable for both interior and exterior uses. It is available in 13 colours and as a penetrating product, it actually impregnates and stains the wood from within, not just the surface. Linitop Primer and Finish’s primary use is as a standalone protective woodstain with a 3-coat application system. Additionally, it can be used as a coloured primer for Linitop Classic and Solid or as a coloured base for clear varnishes such as Vernis and Yacht Vernis.

Linitop Yacht Vernis

Linitop Yacht-Vernis-0L75Linitop Yacht Vernis is a clear marine varnish which has been specially formulated for use in harsh and humid climates. It provides excellent UV resistance and both protects and waterproofs the wood. Linitop Yacht Vernis is resistant to bad weather and damage caused by saltwater. It’s highly flexible meaning it moves with the wood’s natural movement and will not peel or flake.

Yacht Vernis is available in satin or gloss finish and enables you to maintain and enhance the natural beauty of your wood. It can also be used alongside Linitop Primer and Finish if you’re looking for a coloured rather than clear finish. This high performance product combines top quality with ease of application and is suitable for both interior and exterior wood, both new and previously varnished – not just marine wood!

  1. Hi. I would like to know the appropriate decking stainer/sealer for brand new treated decking please?
    Neil Russell

    1. Hi Neil,

      If your decking has just been installed we would recommend using Seasonite new wood protection and leaving it until next summer before using a final finish. Then next summer you wouldn’t choose your protection based on the look you’re after. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

      Many thanks,
      The Owatrol Team

  2. Hi I am looking for a clear sealant finish for a blacksmithed coffee table base that has been allowed to rust for its attractive colour. Do you have a product that flexible, resistant to liquids, heat and knocks ( durable) that will stop the rusting and permanently contain it for it not to stain. For interior use.

    1. Hello Rob,

      Thank you for your query.
      Unfortunately we do not have a product like this in the Linitop range, however, you can use Owatrol Oil followed by Oxid Vernis – this will be the ideal solution for the application.

      All the best,
      The Owatrol Team
