Before You Begin

  • When applying this product wear a dust/mist filtering respirator (NIOSH approval number prefix TC-21C), or a NIOSH approved respirator with any R, N, P or HE filter.
  • Be sure that both surface and air temperature are above 50°F during application and for 48 hours after application. Do not apply product if rain is forecasted within 24 hours of application.
  • Perform the splash test. Sprinkle water on various sections of surface to be sealed. If water absorbs and darkens color of surface within five seconds, surface is porous and considered ready to be treated. If water beads up or otherwise sits on top of surface, then surface does not need protection at this time.
  • Cover plants and shrubs. Move all objects that could come in contact with overspray. Overspray of product onto glass should be removed immediately with paint thinner or mineral spirits.
  • Do not use in below grade application where water pressure is a problem or on painted or recently stained surfaces.

Surface Preparation

  • WARNING! If you scrape, sand, or remove old paint, you may release dust. LEAD IS TOXIC. Contact the National Lead Information Hotline at 1-800-484-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
  • Surfaces and substrates must be free of all mildew stains, dust, dirt, oil, soot, grease and other contaminants.
  • If surface is damp or wet from cleaning or weather, always allow the surface to dry thoroughly (a minimum of 48 hours) before application.

Cleaning Products

  • To prevent clogs, hold can upside down and spray until clear gas appears.
  • To clean stain on dial, wear eye protection, and wipe off with mineral spirits. DO NOT stick pin in dial opening. 
  • Clean overspray with mineral spirits following manufacturer’s instructions.

Application

  • Use outdoors in a well ventilated area.
  • A small trial patch should be tried before application over the entire surface.
  • Shake can 1-2 minutes before and occasionally during use.
  • Hold can in upright position 8"-12” from surface.
  • Spray in sweeping motion from side to side extending past the end of the surface area. Spray one thin coat over entire surface to be waterproofed - DO NOT SATURATE. 
  • If applying a second coat in order to achieve more color and less grain, allow first coat to dry 15 minutes.
  • Oiliness and tackiness will result if over-applied, applied to wet or damp surface, or if overnight temperature falls below 40°F within 48 hours of application. Excessive oiliness may be removed by scrubbing wood with concentrate degreaser.

Drying

  • Dries to touch in 60 minutes. Heavier applications may take longer to dry.
  • Allow surface to dry fully for 24-48 hours before use.

  •  To prevent clogs, hold can upside down and spray until clear gas appears.
