All exterior wood including redwood, cedar, pine, pressure treated wood and more.
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.
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.
Different wood species, textures and natural color will affect finished shade. Always test a small area first for color satisfaction before coating entire project. Apply at a rate the wood will absorb. Do not pool or puddle product on surface. Excess product allowed to sit on surface will result in a tacky finish and extended dry time. Remove tacky finish with a mild solution of Superdeck? Wood Cleaner after 24 hours. When properly applied, the wood surface will have a positive dry and the wood fibers beneath the surface will maintain excellent lubrication. Thoroughly coat the porous ends of all boards with product.
