New Bare Timber
To coat new bare timber immediately, scrub damp timber with Cabot’s New Timber Prep, following label instructions. New Timber Prep will draw out tannins and oils quickly from the surface, allowing you to skip the 4-6 weeks weathering process required for new timber. Always follow New Timber Prep with Cabot’s Deck Clean following label instructions. Remove excess water from the surface with squeegee on Cabot’s Deck Prep brush, and allow timber to dry for at least 1 hour. Note: Cooler conditions could slow down the drying time of the timber.
Fill any cracks or holes with a suitable filler. Sand all surfaces to a flat finish and remove greyed timber. Dust off and wash with Cabot’s Deck Clean.
Pre-Primed Timber and Painted Surfaces Test if surface is sound. If not, scrape off all loose and flaking paint. Fill any cracks or holes with a suitable filler. Sand all surfaces to a flat finish and remove greyed timber. Dust off.
Brick, Masonry, Fibro & Fibre Cement Board
Unpainted masonry surfaces should be cured for 28 days before painting. Ensure surface is sound¹ and clear of any loose sand or cement. Fill holes with grouting cement. Wash down with water using a stiff brush to remove all loose material. To remove any efflorescence (white salts) wipe down with a 5% solution of acetic acid (white vinegar). Hose down & allow to dry. Wash with a bleach solution and/or demossing chemical to remove mould, or moss. Then hose down.
|Apply with||Brush, Roller, Spray|
|Application||Stir thoroughly with a broad flat paddle before and during use. Apply by brush, roller or spray. When spraying, always backbrush immediately after each section is coated, to ensure a uniform finish. Apply two generous coats of Cabot’s Timbercolour Deck & Exterior Paint. Apply three coats on all unpainted timber. Some colours may require more than the recommended number of coats to achieve full opacity. Take particular care to seal the end grain. Temperature must be above 10°C during application and drying time. Do not apply if rain is expected during the drying period. In summer, hot windy conditions may necessitate painting on the cooler, shaded part of the project.|
Durability on horizontal surfaces will depend on wear and weather. Colour fading may occur in areas exposed to heavy foot traffic or excessive weather. Reapply coating as colour changes or as water resistance diminishes. Follow surface preparation instructions. As a guide, it is recommended to conduct a routine maintenance inspection and recoat as soon as the coating shows signs of deterioration. Additional maintenance may be required for extreme conditions.
