New or old exterior wood decking, boat docks, plywood decking, ramps, fences, rails, wood siding, balconies, porches, stairs, walkways, as well as concrete, masonry and stucco surfaces or previously painted or stained surfaces that have been properly prepared. Use of Deck & Dock Solid Coating on old badly damaged decking is an effective alternative to the costly expense of deck replacement.
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.
Product should be shaken or stirred before and during application. When using more than one container of product, intermix all product and stir well to ensure color consistency.
Do not thin.
Packaged Colors - Do Not Tint
Product may be brushed, rolled or sprayed. If sprayed, use the lowest possible pressure needed for a reasonable spray pattern. Back rolling is suggested when spraying, working the product smoothly and evenly into the wood. This will decrease the possibility of pools or puddles on the surface and ensure a properly penetrated finish.
Apply a thick coat with brush, roller, or airless sprayer. When rolling use 3/8 nap synthetic roller cover for smooth finishes, 1/2 - 3/4 nap for medium texture finish, and 1 1/4 nap for heavy texture finishes. Back rolling is suggested when spraying working the product smoothly and evenly into the surface to ensure a uniform appearance. Always maintain a wet edge to avoid lapping. Test Area: Always apply product to a small test area and allow to dry completely before coating entire project to ensure desired color and appearance.
NUMBER OF COATS:
Requires 1 coat for coverage. When filling deep cracks in concrete or locking down splinters on old extremely damaged wood surfaces additional coats may be needed.
50°F - 90°F. Do not apply product in extreme heat of day or if surface is hot to touch. Do not apply product if rain is likely to occur within 24 hours.
DRY TIME @ 77 F:
1 Hour to touch. Allow surface to dry until it can be lightly walked on (2-4 hours) before recoating. Once the final coat has been applied allow 24-48 hours dry time for normal foot traffic. Dry time may be prolonged in cooler temperatures or high humidity. Surface may remain tacky until fully dried and cured. Avoid using surface until fully dry.
Coverage may vary on surface condition, type of surface and number of coats applied. On most wood and concrete surfaces the coverage will be about 100 square feet per gallon for application of one coat per gallon.
Apply one new coat of Deck & Dock Solid Coating every 5-7 years to a clean surface to renew color and maintain durability. Use Superdeck® Wood Cleaner and follow maintenance instructions before recoating.
Clean brushes and equipment with soap and water. Dispose of empty container or unused portion in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
