Due to the Covid-19 emergency our factory and offices will be operating at a reduced level until further notice. We will be taking online orders but you should expect them to take longer to deliver than normal.

We will fully re-open only when the government tells us it is safe to do so.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and we will be back in full force to do business with you in the future.

application and advice

New timber should be well sanded, non-oily and thoroughly dry. Old paint, stain or varnish - strip back to bare wood, sand and clean, coat as new wood.

Stir thoroughly before and during use. Do not apply below 5°C. Brush apply one coat evenly with the grain in a full flowing coat, do not overbrush.
Recoating will be required every 1-2 years depending on degree of exposure. Clean down and lightly sand.

Timbers containing high natural oils, e.g. Teak and Iroko, may inhibit drying and cause impaired adhesion. Wiping surface with methylated spirit will assist adhesion.
Application rollers, sponges and pads, or clothes soaked in this product, may spontaneously combust if left. Dispose of after soaking in water. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.

Protect from extremes of temperature during storage and application.
