Suitable for exterior panelling, garden furniture, windows, sandpits, box framing, rafters, pergolas etc. Not to be used on alkaline surfaces, plaster, concrete or fibro-cement. If considering use on those materials a test-strip should be made to assess suitability.

PROTECTION Protection against weather and wood-destroying ultra-violet light. One to three coats are recommended depending on the absorbency of the timber. Box frames, timber windows, cladding and end grains must be treated B E F O R E INSTALLATION. It is also good practice to prime all back surfaces.

PREPARATION Prepare surface in accordance with AS 2311 Painting of Buildings. Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet timber. Round off sharp edges. Wood and other surfaces should be well sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner. Imperfect coats may require complete stripping before applying BIO products. Hardwoods and other timbers rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using BIO Thinner, because these substances may mix with the oil and prolong its drying time.

PRIMING For fungi and insect treatment use BIO WOOD PROTECTING BORAX. Before painting, wipe off the surplus of Borax with a damp cloth; otherwise surface residue may inhibit paint adhesion. Decks: Prior to painting – allow new timber to weather for 4-6 weeks. During this time tannins and resins can leach out, then wipe down with BIO Thinner. For better adhesion sand with grit 90 sandpaper.

APPLICATION Stir thoroughly before use with a broad flat stirrer. First coat may be thinned down by 20% with BIO Thinner. Brush, roll or spray thinly and evenly working the oil well into the grain. Maintain a wet edge when painting. Thick coats wrinkle when dry. Avoid bubbles. If necessary thin with BIO THINNER for hardwood application. Do not apply more oil than the surface can absorb. Remove excess oil with a dry, lint free cloth after approx. 1 - 2 hours. Lightly sand between coats if necessary with fine sandpaper. Allow 12 to 24 hours to dry between coats. Low temperatures and humid conditions prolong the drying time. Apply second and subsequent coats only after previous coat has thoroughly dried. Do not use below +10 C and or above 80% humidity, in cold damp conditions, when condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely to occur or hot days, direct sunlight and hot surfaces. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying. Reaches maximum durability after 8-14 days
