Preparation

For best results, make sure surfaces to be treated are sound, clean and dry.

  • Remove all loose and defective coatings and previous paintwork, if necessary stripping back to bare wood. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.
  • Remove and treat any mould, algae, lichen or moss with Dulux Trade Weathershield Multi Surface Fungicidal Wash.
  • Remove defective glazing material, clean the rebates and any loose or open joints. Replace any rotten wood and troublesome knots with new timber.
  • Rub down all surfaces thoroughly, in the direction of the grain, to remove any grey, weathered wood and surface sheen from remaining coatings, and then dust off (refer to COSHH Assessment).
  • Fill any surface defects, open joints, etc. and replace any missing glazing material. Do not use linseed oil putty for glazing (or making good) with natural wood finishes, use external beads set in an appropriate non-setting mastic or a special glazing compound.
  • When using Dulux Trade Quick Dry Opaque, treat any knots and resinous areas by removing resin and applying a thin coat of an appropriate knotting solution, in order to help stop discolouration.
Application

Always follow the manufacturers instructions found on the tin, it is recommended that a small test area is applied before painting the entire surface to ensure compatibility.

  • Stir thoroughly to ensure even distribution
  • Prime all bare wood with 2 coats of Dulux Trade Preservative Primer including any new or bare replacement beading.
  • Shake the container thoroughly to mix the Dulux Trade Preservative Primer. Pour out enough primer for the job into a suitable container.
  • Do not use direct from the can or return any unused basecoat to the container. Do not thin. Wipe off excess base coat from the surrounding paintwork.
  • Apply 2 coats of Dulux Trade Quick Dry Opaque with a brush only. Do not spray.
  • New joinery is often factory primed using a stain base coat, also known as a dual-purpose primer. These materials quickly erode when left exposed and may need to be re-primed.
  • When treating timber that has been pressure impregnated with preservative, make sure that the surface is totally dry.
  • The use of silicone sealants can cause ‘cissing’ of this product.

Do not use on resinous wood or woodwork with a history of blistering. The maximum benefits of this system will only be realised when used as directed above on good quality timber that conforms to BS EN 942: 1996 (or as amended), in conjunction with good component design. For best colour consistency, purchase sufficient tinted paint for each job including touch-in at one time from the same source.
