Preschem’s EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN tinter packs comes in a range of environmental colours. This is a unique product formulated when mixed into a standard can of AUSSIE CLEAR with oils and water repellents to provide timber nourishment plus a colour stain which also provides UV protection. EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN stabilises timber and repels moisture, reducing checking and splitting. No film is allowed to form so peeling or cracking is never a problem. Unsightly mould growth is inhibited by a powerful mouldicide. The product is designed for hardwoods and softwoods.
Preschem’s EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN tinter packs are available in a standard brown colour popular with architectural projects. The Brown Stain will stain the colour to different shades of brown depending on weather the timber is a light or dark coloured timber. The Grey Wash EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN is available only as a ready to use product and is suitable to give light or blond timbers a grey weathered look.
EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN can be used wherever an opaque protective exterior finish is required. The EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN has colours that blend well with the outdoors. Some typical applications are: decking stain, fencing, cladding, fascia, exterior doors, window frames, exposed beams or any other timber where a wood stain is desired. We recommend sampling the colour on a small section of timber or off-cut prior to full application.
Directions For Use
Stir well before use. Ensure a clean dry surface, free from dirt, grease and wax. Previously varnished or painted surfaces must be thoroughly stripped. Badly weathered surfaces should be sanded back or cleaned using a wood cleaner such as Preschem GREY DECK CLEANER. Stir the measured dose of the EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN tinter pack into the correctly sized can of AUSSIE CLEAR thoroughly before use. EXTERIOR TIMBER STAIN can be applied by any convenient means, such as brush, roller, spray or dip application, however decks and large areas are most easily applied with a lambswool applicator. On dressed timber the strength of the stain colour can be controlled somewhat by application quantity, and wiping will make the colour more transparent. Any excess stain on the timber 1-2 hours after application should be wiped off. If the timber still looks dry, another application may be required. Allow 24 hours for thorough drying.
If the timber looks dry or the colour has faded simply reapply another coat. Sanding and cleaning of the surface is recommended prior to this application. Some high weather areas may need regular inspections and reapplications every few years.
Approximately 7-8 m2/litre on rough sawn timber and 11-12 m2/litre on dressed timber. Often, stains will be stronger in colour on rough sawn timber.
