Due to the Covid-19 emergency our factory and offices will be operating at a reduced level until further notice. We will be taking online orders but you should expect them to take longer to deliver than normal.

We will fully re-open only when the government tells us it is safe to do so.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and we will be back in full force to do business with you in the future.

application and advice

All surfaces must be clean and free from dust, dirt, oil and contamination. Remove oils/resins from oily hardwoods and resinous softwoods. Treat new wood with a wood preservative to remove all traces of fungus and mould. Ensure pre-treatment is completely dry before application. Joints, end grain and glazing beads must be completely sealed. Water penetration into timber will produce unsightly water staining and promote fungal growth.

Instructions in the technical data sheet must be followed. Ensure the product is well mixed. Using a good quality brush, apply evenly using light brush strokes, following the grain of the wood. Keep a wet edge and avoid overlaps. Apply the first coat and allow to dry. On new wood dilute the first coat with 10% water. Sand lightly to obtain the best finish. Apply three coats.

Always apply to a test area before starting work. Care must be taken when applying in high temperature or direct sunlight as this will affect drying time. Do not apply when rain is imminent. Coating life will be reduced on horizontal surfaces and where the coating is in contact with the ground or pooled water.

Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.
