Coverage can vary depending on application method and the condition and nature of the surface. Preparing the jobBare or untreated wood should be pre-treated with an appropriate wood preserver to prevent rot and decay. Surfaces should be dry and free from dirt and algae etc. Remove any algae, lichen, fungi or moss using an appropriate fungicidal wash or cleaner designed for the job. How to applyApplication: Shake the pack thoroughly before use. Final colour will depend upon wood type, previous treatment and the number of coats applied. Apply using the appropriate Cuprinol sprayer for the product. As with any sprayer it may take a couple of minutes to perfect your technique. Ensure you stand at the correct distance with the nozzle 15-30cm (6”-12”) from the wood surface. Begin slowly and increase the pace as you get used to spraying. Take care not to spray too quickly as this may result in an uneven finish. Similarly, spraying too slowly will result in excess product being applied causing runs. Should this happen, simply brush into the wood. Avoid spraying surrounding plants, brickwork, glass, PVCu, etc. Overspray can be minimised by avoiding spraying in windy conditions and by using cardboard or plastic as a shield. Any overspray should be cleaned up immediately (whilst still wet) with water and household detergent. Excessive spillage on plants should be rinsed off immediately before drying. If applying by brush, apply evenly, avoiding splashing surrounding plants, brickwork, glass, PVCu, etc. Do not apply in temperatures below 5°C, in damp conditions or if rain is likely before the product has dried. Cover any surfaces nearby to protect from overspray. Allow 2-6 hours between coats under normal weather conditions. Where a strong colour change is involved, more coats may be required. Product performance will be reduced if applied to grey and weathered smooth wood. If using more than one pack it is advisable to mix them together in a larger container or finish in a corner before starting a new pack. Drying timeUp to 6 hours. Drying times can vary depending on the nature of the surface and the weather conditions.This 5L pack covers up to 15m2 with one coat or 5 fence panel sides (6 x 5 feet). Coverage can vary depending on application method and the condition and nature of the surface.
