application and advice
New timber should be well sanded, non-oily and thoroughly dry. Old paint, stain or varnish - strip back to bare wood, sand and clean, coat as new wood.
Stir thoroughly before and during use. Do not apply below 5°C. Brush apply one coat evenly with the grain in a full flowing coat, do not overbrush.
Recoating will be required every 1-2 years depending on degree of exposure. Clean down and lightly sand.
Timbers containing high natural oils, e.g. Teak and Iroko, may inhibit drying and cause impaired adhesion. Wiping surface with methylated spirit will assist adhesion.
Application rollers, sponges and pads, or clothes soaked in this product, may spontaneously combust if left. Dispose of after soaking in water. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.
