For New Timber:
  • Resinous deposits should be removed with a scraper.
  • Degrease the surface with a lint free cloth and suitable solvent, allow to evaporate fully before applying Sikkens.
  • For previously painted or worn wood use a fine sandpaper of 240 grit work in the direction of to abrade the surface the grain remove any loose paint.
  • Dust down entire surface.
  • Fill any cracks, holes or chips, always use a filler designed for timber.
Application

Before applying stir the product thoroughly and test a small area to ensure colour and adhesion. Colours can vary dependant on surface to be treated.

  • Do not apply when there is the risk of rain or when temperatures are below 8°C or above 25°C.
  • Protect from frost and rain until dry.
  • Always ensure product is fully mixed before and during application to ensure consistency in colour and sheen.
  • Do not thin.
  • For best results use a good quality, synthetic-fibre brush designed for the application of water borne products.
  • The product should be applied in a full flowing coat, laying off in the direction of the grain, using the minimum number of brushstrokes necessary to produce an acceptable finish.
  • Avoid over brushing.
  • Apply 2-3 coats.
  • Allow 5 hours between coats.
  • This initial coat should satisfy the porosity/absorption of the timber. Carefully denib the first coat using a fine grade nylon abrasive pad or a fine grade (P240 or finer) wet or dry silicon carbide abrasive paper, remove all dust.
  • On new wood were possible the first coat should be applied all round prior to fixing.
  • Pay special attention to areas of exposed grain e.g tops and bottoms of doors.
