Timbakote Interior Timbakote Lockwood Blond is an ideal coating for internal timber surfaces where a natural or Blond timber finish is required.


New Timber should be clean and dry, free of any loose fibres and any stains, stencils or other marks should be removed. All sharp edges of timber must be sanded to create a rounded edge for better adhesion.After the first coat all nail holes and minor defects should be filled with suitable timber filler tinted to the same colour as the timber substrate

Previously oiled or stained timber, wipe down with detergent and water, rinse off and give light sand with 150 grit sandpaper. Do an adhesion test to make sure the Timbakote Lockwood Blond will adhere to the cleaned surface.

Previously coated with Polyurethane or similar.
Sand with 150 grit sandpaper and dust down, check for adhesion.


Stir the product well before and during use with a flat stirrer.

New Timber
Apply 2 coats of Timbakote Lockwood Blond to achieve your Blond effect.
For improved long term durability or for high wear areas apply a final coat of Timbakote Durashield clear.

Previously coated Aged Timber
Sand  with 150 grit sandpaper along the grain and dust down.
Fill all nail holes and minor defects with a suitable Timber filler tinted to the same colour as the timber substrate.
It is important to trial a small area first to achieve the correct application technique & the desired finish.
Apply 2 coats of Timbakote Lockwood Blond with a good quality paintbrush. Lay off to achieve an even appearance. Always keep a wet edge to avoid lap marking. Sand lightly between coats and avoid over brushing. For the best result lay off the product along the grain.

If the timber colour or texture is uneven in appearance or requires heavy sanding, it is recommended to apply 1 coat of Timbakote Durashield tinted to the same colour as the timber substrate to provide a more consistent surface prior to applying the Timbakote Lockwood Blond.

Thinning is not generally recommended as it can be detrimental to the coatings performance. The addition of 50mls of water per litre maybe required in hot weather or when coating absorbent surfaces.
