Do not apply only the Colorless Base without first applying 2 coats of tinted Pro-Tek-Tor DR. Pigments contained in the tinted Pro-Tek-Tor DR greatly contribute to the preservation of wood.
Preparation : Stir the product well before and during the application. Do not shake. Do not apply in direct sunlight. Can be applied to dry or unseasoned wood with a moisture content up to 30% (or up to 15% for Cedar). Wait one year before applying on new treated wood.
Clean all porous surfaces using a high pressure sprayer. All surfaces must be free from dust, dirt, wax, grease, oil and mold. Sand smooth wood surface using a 60-80 grit sandpaper to remove mill glaze or existing finish.
Always test for penetration, appearance and color in an inconspicuous area before applying. Protect, cover or mask all areas and surfaces that do not require coating.
Pour contents into an empty container. Loosen pigment from the bottom or original container and pour the contents back in, repeat until all pigments is in solution. Intermix all containers of the same color.
Avoid using if rain or snow is expected on the coated surface within 48 - 72 hours at low temperatures.
Do not apply under temperature below 1 °C.
Pressure Treated Wood : Test the absorbency of the wood by sprinkling water on the surface. If the water penetrates into the wood quickly, the wood is ready to finish. If the water beads up or does not penetrate, allow the wood to weather and test for absorbency again. Do not sand pressure treated lumber. Due to the green or brown tone of many brands of pressure treated lumber, the colour of the Broda may look different from the colour selected.
Application : Outside, If the wood surface is warm to the touch, dampen the wood surface prior to the first application.
Apply the first coat using a stain brush, roller, stain pad or a sprayer, impregnating all the surface until complete saturation. Spread any spills and puddles.
Let dry for 12 to 48 hours.
Apply a second coat of Pro-Tek-Tor Dr after the complete drying of the first coat. Apply by completely imbibing the surface until complete saturation of wood. Spread any spills and puddles.
