Container Size and Coverage
Available in 1 litre which covers approximately 15m2 one coat depending on timber and method of application.
Treatex Teak Protection will only work on unfinished timber. Previous finishes must be fully removed prior to application. If timber is grey and weathered then it should be sanded back to restore its natural colour before application. Ensure the timber is dry and free from possible contaminates e.g. algae, grease, dirt, dust etc. We advise that when using Treatex Teak Protection, sufficient product is purchased to complete the whole project and when more than one tin is required it is advisable to mix them together before use. Timber must have a moisture content below 18%. Temperature must be greater than 8°C during application and drying. A trial application is essential prior to starting the project.
Application of Treatex Teak Protection
Stir container thoroughly, before and during use. Use a brush to evenly apply Treatex Teak Protection in the same direction as the wood grain, allowing approximately 60-70ml per m². This product works best when the second coat is applied ‘wet on wet’. This means a second coat should be applied, in the same way as above, before the first coat is dry. After the second coat leave to dry for approximately 12 hours.
We recommend a fresh coat is applied once a year. Treatex brushes are available. Wet brushes can be cleaned with warm soapy water. Store containers in a cool and frost free environment. Unopened containers will last for three years. Once containers are opened, transfer contents to a smaller airtight container.
