Surface Preparation: Surfaces previously coated with paint or flaking varnish must be completely stripped and removed. Scrape off any mould or algae, then scrub using an appropriate solution or diluted bleach. Leave for 48 hours. Wash down and allow to dry.
Rub down along the grain with fine grade sand paper to remove any sharp edges, raised grain or weathered wood. Fill any deep cracks or holes with a suitable wood putty. Clean to ensure all areas are free from dirt, dust, grease or wax. Ensure the surface is dry before painting.
Application: For new wood, Prime with 1 coat of Dulux Wood Guard Diamond Tough Exterior Deck and Furniture Protector thinned with 20% water. Apply in the direction of the grain. Follow up with 2 to 3 coats of Dulux Wood Guard Diamond Tough Exterior Deck and Furniture Protector without thinning. Allow at least 30 minutes between coats before re coating.
Direction for Use: Apply 3 coats of Exterior Deck & Furniture Protector on dry surface using a brush (1st Coat thinned with 20% Water). This product is ready to use. Do not thin.
Washing and Cleaning: Clean application tools and spills with fresh water.
