Preparation

THE TIME PUT INTO PREPARATION WILL GREATLY  BENEFIT
THE LONGEVITY OF THE COATING

For best results clean all timber prior to application of finishes to prevent early adhesion failure and drying issues due to contamination from tannins and extractives. All external timbers under 12 months old require preparation with Sap Strip. Old, weathered grey timbers and dirty timber require cleaning with Dex Prep.

 

TESTING YOUR TIMBER

When using transparent coatings, wet the timber first. If it appears black, more cleaning with DEX PREP is necessary to eliminate all Grey. If this is not done the surface under the coating will appear black and be visible on the timber surface under the coating.
