Timbakote® Deck Pro
Timbakote Deck Pro is a water based semi-transparent stain designed to protect and enhance the appearance of new and weathered exterior timber from the effects of harsh ultra violet rays. Deck Pro is available in a range of twenty four natural sheer colourfast colours that enhance the wood grain and help reduce warping splitting and cracking of timber surfaces. Deck Pro has an active fungicide to resist mould damage and discolouration and is licensed by Environmental Choice New Zealand.
Timbakote Deck Pro is an ideal coating for new and weathered timber cladding, fences, decks ,furniture and any exterior timber where a sheer natural water resistant stain is required.
The surface should be clean and dry, any stains or stencil marks should be removed. All cut edges should be sealed prior to installation. It is recommended that LOSP treated timber is left to weather for 7 days in its end use situation prior to coating. If timber has been left exposed for longer then 30 days, wash down prior to application with detergent and water with a soft broom. Allow to dry for 12 hours. Oily or resinous timber should be left to weather for 4-6 weeks prior to coating.
Apply a sugar soap solution, leave for 10-15 minutes and scrub with a stiff bristle brush. Remove any greyed timber fibres to produce a uniform surface to stain. Rinse off with generous amounts of water and allow to dry. Treat a small area at a time. Hose down vegetation prior to application.
Apply 2 coats of Timbakote Deck Pro with a good quality brush, roller or applicator pad.
If excess stain occurs redistribute to form an even cover. Allow 2 hours between coats. Weathered timber will appear darker after application. A trial patch is recommended before you start. Do not apply at temperatures less then 10 degrees C. In hot weather dampen timber down prior to application to assist with even distribution of the stain. Always keep a wet edge and coat to the natural breaks in the timber.
Any splashes should be removed immediately by wiping with a rag and water.
Reapply at least every 2-3 years or when the coating looks weathered.
6-12 sqm per litre depending on porosity of surface, temperature and application technique.
Depending on such factors as ambient temperatures, humidity levels and air circulation. The general dry times at 6-12 sqm per Litre are:
Touch dry 20 minutes
Recoat Time 2 hours
Curing time 14 days
Recoating should be completed before deterioration of the coating allows weathering of the timber substrate to take place. A patchy, thin, faded and uneven appearance indicates the need for recoating.
Re apply 1-2 coats of Timbakote Deck Pro over a properly prepared surface.
Regular washing with an anti-mould cleaner will help with the appearance of your coating and assist with the removal of mould and algae extending the lifespan of Timbakote Deck Pro
