The first and most important step to coating your decking, timber and wall cladding is to choose the proper finish. There are many different types of finish coats on the market. The best one to use is the one that will afford the maximum protection and value, this is go to link Timberguard get link Finish Natural Tone . There are many companies who claim that their product will deliver what you need. Experience has taught us that a large percentage of these claims are false.

A good sealer will have UV protection, mold and mildew resistant, and a life of several years. After cleaning the surface and allowing sufficient drying time you are ready to apply the protective coating. We recommend the use of an airless spray gun (minimum of 2 people required), flat lambs wool applicator, roller and paint brush for material application.


If you are going to use a airless spray gun on your timber cladding, louvers etc you must first apply plastic sheeting to all areas that you do not want over spray on, including walls, windows and plants. If you are going to use a flat lambs wool applicator for decking only then use 48mm masking tape around the edges of walls, pillars etc. Make sure that the masking tape is not sitting directly on the timber deck as this might cause some of the product to attach itself to the tape and could become damaged when the tape is removed. Next place tarps, or plastic sheeting, under the rails if they are to be coated and IMMEDIATELY remove any runs as these spots will dry darker than the rest of the deck. Once these spots dry it is nearly impossible to get them out.

Stir the product with a flat stirrer before use. Apply three or more coats with a brush, flat lambs wool applicator, roller

(10ml nap), airless spray gun (8 to 11 Thou tip) or air assisted spray gun.

Apply the first coat so that you are always applying the product to a wet edge. Do not apply wet product to tacky or dried product as this will leave lap marks. Ensure that a good amount of product is applied to the end grain and edges, this is important to reduce any edge delaminating.

If you are using an airless spray gun, back brush or roll immediately the product is applied to the surface. This will ensure a better penetration and remove any excess pooling or runs of the product. Do not brush or roll if the product has started to tack off as this will cause the coating to prick up and reduce the adhesion of the coating. If this occurs wait until the product dries and give a light sand with 100 grit sand paper prior to the next coat.

When using a roller or lambs wool applicator, work max. of 3 boards at a time.

Apply the second and subsequent coats the same as the first coat. No sanding is required between coats. It is very important to re apply the second and additional coats as per the manufacturers drying recommendations and not before. The re coating time is a minimum of 2 hours @ 25° C
