James Hardie Textured Weatherboards & James Hardie Scyon® Axon® Panel

Timbakote Timber Pro Rustic Coating System
Timber Pro Rustic System is a semi-transparent waterbased coating system that protects fibre cement surfaces such as James Hardie Scyon® Axon® Panel from the affects of weather and harsh Ultra Violet (UV) rays. It beautifies the surface by replicating the natural look of timber on James Hardie textured weatherboards and grained panels such as James Hardie Scyon® Axon®

Timbakote Rustic Basecoat is applied as the first coat of the Timber Pro Rustic System and enables the coating system to remain flexible and tough enough to withstand seasonal movements.

Colour is then applied by topcoating with 2 coats of Timbakote Timber Pro in the desired colour.
Timbakote Timber Pro Rustic is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non- hazardous, non-flammable and offers 10 year maintained durability on James Hardie Weatherboards.

Timbakote Rustic Timber Stain (8 years) Mt Maunganui

All nail holes and minor defects to be filled with suitable quality timber filler and sanded to a smooth finish.

Fibre cement weatherboards should be clean and surfaces dry and free from contaminants.

Stir well before and during use with a flat stirrer. Thinning is not generally recommended, as it can be detrimental to the coating performance. The addition of 50mls of water maybe required in hot weather or when coating absorbent surfaces.

Apply 1 coat of Timbakote Rustic Basecoat & allow to dry thoroughly.
Apply 2-3 coats of Timbakote Timber Pro Rustic to achieve the desired colour. Do not over spread as achieving the correct film build is important to the life of the coating.

Rusticated fibre cement weatherboards 7 - 12 sqm per litre


Depending on such factors as film thickness, ambient air temperatures, humidity levels and air circulation.

The general dry times at a spreading rate of 7 - 12 sq metres per litre are;
Touch Dry 20 minutes
Re-Coat Time 2 hours
Curing Time 7 days 


Recoating should take place before deterioration of the coating allows weathering of the timber substrate to take place. A patchy, thin, faded and uneven appearance or eroded coating on edges indicates the need for recoating. A wash down on an annual basis with a slow release moss and mould wash will help with the long-term maintenance of your coating.


All equipment can be cleaned up in water.


Wear impervious gloves and wash paint deposits off skin with soap and water.
Moderately irritating to eyes, wear splash proof goggles. Flush eyes immediately with plenty of water if coating splashes to the eyes occur. If discomfort persists seek medical attention.

Keep out of children’s reach. Ingestion; Give 1-3 cups of water and seek medical attention.


Let residual coating dry by leaving the lid off the container. Dispose with refuse if permitted by local council. Paint containers are reusable for non-food purposes and recyclable in areas where recycling and collection facilities are available.
