Application Directions

  • Before You Begin instructions
    • Surface should be clean, porous and free of any previous finishes
    • For concrete: sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface; if they are quickly absorbed then the surface is ready to prep
    • Let wood dry in the open air for 3-5 days
    • Always apply to a small test area and allow to dry
    • Cover nearby bushes and flowers
    • Apply when air and surface temperatures are between 50 ˚F and 90 ˚F
  • Preparation Warning
    WARNING! Removal of old paint by sanding, scraping or other means may generate dust or fumes that contain lead. Exposure to lead dust or fumes may cause brain damage or other adverse health effects, especially in children or pregnant women. Controlling exposure to lead or other hazardous substances requires the use of proper protective equipment such as a properly fitted respirator (NIOSH approved) and proper containment and cleanup. For more information, call the National Lead Information Center at 1-800-424-LEAD (in US) or contact your local health authority.
    • If needed, sand with 80-100-grit (120-180 grit for rougher surfaces) sandpaper to remove any loose wood fibers
    • Replace severely damaged or rotting boards
    • Clean with Cabot Wood Cleaner to remove dirt, grime, mildew and other contaminants
    • If needed, brighten with Cabot Wood Brightener to remove rust stains, tannin bleed or discoloration
    • If needed, remove old water- or oil-based coatings with Cabot Wood Stripper and neutralize with Cabot Wood Brightener
    • Check the label for additional and specialized directions
    • Two-coat application recommended. Stir thoroughly before use.
    • Apply with a high-quality stain brush. Work in 2-3 full-board sections. Spot-treat dry areas around knots, then apply a uniform coat to full boards from end to end, maintaining a wet edge to avoid lap marks. Do not apply excessive amounts of finish, particularly in cracks.
    • The first coat should be allowed to dry at a minimum overnight and no more than 7 days before applying a second coat. Finish may appear uneven after first coat — second coat adds protection and achieves uniform color and depth.
    • For best appearance, sand any rough areas lightly with 220-grit sandpaper and brush off dust before applying second coat. Any bleed-back from cracks can be gently removed.
    • If project requires more than 1 container, blend all containers together to ensure uniformity
