Stir thoroughly before use. Try a test area first to ensure that colour and adhesion are acceptable. Apply 2-3 coats evenly along the grain, avoiding overlaps. Allow 2-4 hours between coats under normal weather conditions. This product is wax enriched to repel water. Recoat within 2-3 days of previous coat. If a longer period elapses try a flat a test area to ensure product is not repelled. Product performance will be reduced if applied to grey and weathered smooth wood. Do not apply in temperatures below 5 degrees C, in damp conditions or if rain is likely before the product has dried. Please note that the colour in the tub may be different to the final shade when dry. Where a strong colour change is involved, more coats may be required. If using more than one can it is advisable to mix them together in a larger container or finish painting in a corner before starting a new can.


Drying time is 2-4 hours (showerproof in just 1 hour). Drying times can vary depending on the nature of the surface and the weather conditions.


After use, remove as much product as possible from brushes and rollers before cleaning with water. Store in dry conditions and protect from frost.
