Exterior wood can be affected by many factors, including rain, snow, mildew, mould and UV rays. For the best results on your project follow these guidelines when applying Sikkens® ProLuxe™ wood finishes:
Note: New pressure treated lumber requires a six-week drying period. Water-repellant lumber requires one year of weathering prior to application. New rough-sawn wood should be dry-brushed using a brush with stiff bristles to remove loose dirt and fibers.
Follow these do’s and don’ts for an optimum result on your exterior project. Please refer to the Product Label, TDS or MSDS for safety and detailed application instructions.
We recommend performing a colour test on a sample of the wood being used in the project with the number of coats required. This will confirm you get the colour and sheen you desire.
Interior wood can be protected from fading and yellowing by proper care and application of finishes. For the best results on your project follow these guidelines when applying Sikkens ProLuxe wood finishes:
Note: For a smoother final finish, or before using stain, use 180 – 220 grit sandpaper after step 4 above. Avoid working in direct sunlight because of reduced open time and potential for uneven absorption.
