Treatex Classic Colour Collection works best on unfinished timber.
Previous porous finishes should be thoroughly cleaned or lightly sanded before overcoating.
Flaking or peeling finishes must be fully removed prior to application.
A trial application is essential when overcoating another finish.
Ensure the timber is dry and free from possible contaminates e.g. algae, grease, dirt, dust etc.
Exterior timbers susceptible to decay, mould and fungi should be treated first with a preservative.
To help prevent staining, exterior timbers with high tannin levels (e.g. oak, idigbo, teak, cedar, mahogany) should be treated with Treatex Stain Inhibitor.
We advise that when using Treatex Classic Colour Collection, sufficient product is purchased to complete the whole project and when more than one tin is required it is advisable to mix them together before use.
Timber must have a moisture content below 18%.
Temperature must be greater than 8°
