Timbakote Timber Pro, Data Sheet
Timbakote Timber Pro is a semi – transparent water based 100% acrylic exterior coating that protects and enhances the natural beauty of timber. Timbakote complies and is licensed by Environmental Choice New Zealand.
Oily resinous timber such as Macrocarpa, Kwila & new dressed Cedar should be left to weather for 4-6 weeks prior to cleaning down with a sugar soap solution & rinsed free of residues. Allow to dry thoroughly and apply 1 coat of Timbakote Timber Prep.
Note: All hidden faces, edges, rebates and end grains must be sealed with 2 coats of Timbakote Timber Prep prior to installation.
Exposed Timber (greater then one week) Remove any contamination and loose timber fibres then treat with a sugar soap solution. Complete as per new timber.
Previously oiled or stained timber: Wash the surface to remove any dirt, dust, grime or other contaminants. Treat moss and mould with a moss and mould killer and rinse thoroughly with clean water. Ensure any poorly adhered coatings are removed to provide a sound surface to coat. Check adhesion of existing coatings is sound and complete coating as per new timber.
Apply 1 coat of Timbakote Timber Prep to all bare timber areas and allow to dry thoroughly.
Apply 2-3 generous coats of Timbakote Timber Pro with a good quality paintbrush, applicator pad, roller or spray. If spraying lay off with an applicator pad or brush to provide an even appearance. Do not over spread.
Achieving the correct paint film thickness is important to the life of a semi - transparent coating. Apply Timbakote to one board at a time; lay off in long even strokes along the board's length working to natural breaks in the cladding. Always keep a wet edge to avoid lap marking.
Highly exposed aspects require an additional coat for extra protection due to extreme weathering. Apply the final coats of Timbakote after the cladding has being installed. If using more then one container of Timbakote make sure all containers are mixed together prior to application. Thinning is not generally recommended, as it can be detrimental to the coating performance. The addition of 50mils of water per Litre maybe required in hot weather or when coating absorbent surfaces.
Timber Dressed 7 - 12 sqm per litre
