All exterior wood including redwood, cedar, pine, pressure treated wood and more.


Surface Preparation

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.


Product Preparation

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.


Thinning

Do not thin.


Application Methods

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


How to Apply

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.


Number of Coats

One coat depending on wood porosity and wood moisture content.


Application Temperature

40° F.–95° F. Do not apply if wood surface is hot to touch or if rain is likely to occur.


Dry Time @ 77 degrees F

8 hours to touch, 24 hours for traffic; depending on weather conditions.
