Protects exterior new wood, weathered wood or previously painted or stained surfaces that have been properly prepared.
All surfaces must be clean, dry, and free from dirt, mildew stains, dust and other foreign matter. Do not apply over sealed surfaces. Remove surface stains, dirt and failed oxidized stains with Superdeck Wood Cleaner. Remove solid stains or paints with Superdeck Wood Stripper. For redwood and cedar, follow cleaning or stripping with Superdeck Wood Brightener to remove tannin stains and brighten wood to its original color. For new wood remove mill glaze with Superdeck Wood Brightener.
WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment, such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
Thoroughly stir contents before and occasionally during use. For uniformity, mix all cans together before use. Do not thin or mix with any other stains or coatings. A sample brush out is recommended to ensure color satisfaction.
Do not thin.
Apply without thinning by brush, roller, sprayer, or dip. When spraying and dipping, be sure to back brush to ensure uniform coverage. Penetration will vary depending on porosity and water content of the surface. Thoroughly coat cut ends and joints.
Proper application is essential in order to accomplish the full benefits of product appearance and performance. Different wood species, textures and natural color will affect finished shade. Always test a small area first for color satisfaction on before coating entire project.
NUMBER OF COATS:
Two coats are required for proper color development, the second coat MUST be applied within 7 days of the first coat.
APPLICATION TEMPERATURE:For best results apply in shade with surface temperatures between 50°F and 90°F. Do not apply if temperatures will fall below 50øF or if rain or snow is expected within 24 hours after application. Cooler temperatures require longer drying times.
DRY TIME @ 77 F:
1 hour to touch, 4 hour minimum before coating, 7 days maximum in between first and second coat. Temperature and humidity dependent.
Approximate spread rate: 100-350 sq. ft/gal. New wood normally requires less product than old weathered wood, due to older wood being more porous.
Clean spills and spatters, hands and tools with soap and warm water. After cleaning, flush spray equipment with a compliant cleanup solvent to prevent rusting of the equipment. Follow manufacturer's safety recommendations when using solvents. Dispose of empty container or unused portion in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
