To get the best results, ensure surfaces to be treated are sound, clean and dry. Remove all loose and defective coatings and previous paintwork, if necessary stripping back to bare wood. Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1960s paint surfaces over wood and metal as they may contain harmful lead.
Remove and treat any mould, algae, lichen or moss with Weathershield Multi-Surface Fungicidal Wash*. Remove defective glazing material, clean the rebates and any loose or open joints. Replace any rotten wood and troublesome knots with new preservative treated timber.
Thoroughly rub down all surfaces in the direction of the grain to remove any grey, weathered wood and surface sheen from remaining coatings, and then dust off (refer to COSHH Assessment).
Fill any surface defects, open joints, etc. and replace any missing glazing material. Do not use linseed oil putty for glazing (or making good) with natural wood finishes, use external beads set in appropriate non-setting mastic or a special glazing compound.
By brush only. Do not spray.
After use, remove as much basecoat as possible from brushes before cleaning with water.
