The Varathane® Story

In 1958, Varathane revolutionized the wood care industry with the introduction of the world's first liquid plastic "clear finish" that has served as the benchmark for quality ever since. But this introduction was only the beginning of Varathane's many firsts.

1971

first Gel Stain

because of its thicker consistency, vertical surfaces could now be stained without fear of drips and runs.

1989

first Water-Based Clear Finish

a crystal clear alternative to the amber hue of an oil-based finish, plus easy soap and water clean up.

1992

first Floor Finishing Centre is unveiled

a one-stop, in-store source of information, product, tools and accessories for the DIY floor finisher.

2000

first No-Sanding floor system called Renewal

amazingly removes surface scuffs and scratches for a beautifully restored wood floor, without sanding!

2003

first Soya Oil-Based Stains and trial-size packets

finally, an oil-based stain that maintains clearer, truer colours and our novel try-before-you-buy colour samplers.

2005

first Universal Sanding Sealer made available by Varathane

one sanding sealer that works with any clear finish: oil-based, water-based or lacquer.

2006

patented Aluminum Oxide Nano-technology added to floor finish

Varathane takes scuff and scratch resistance to a new level for exceptional durability.

2006

first Water-based One-Step Stain & Polyurethane

guess what - a quality clear finish doesn't get any easier than this.
