Ensure the timber surface is suitably prepared, clean and dry, with dust, dirt, wax and grease removed and it is allowed to acclimatise to its end-use environment. The moisture content should not exceed 18% prior to coating.
Degrease any exposed bare timber surface by wiping with a cloth dampened in a suitable sharp solvent. Certain timber species contain high levels of natural wood extractives or exudates and some softwood can be highly resinous. Resinous deposits should be removed with a scraper. Any remaining residues should be removed using a lint-free cloth dampened with a suitable sharp solvent, frequently changing the face of the cloth. Allow solvent to evaporate fully before overcoating. The use of both eye and hand protection is strongly advised.
Knotting may be used to reduce extractive discolouration, however, it is rarely effective at sealing in resin. In addition, the adhesion of coatings can be impaired. Where a superficial application of preservative to softwood and hardwood is deemed necessary, such as timbers in Durability Class 3 or lower, use Cuprinol Wood Preserver ClearBP.
N.B. Rubbol AZ plus is not suitable for use on timbers in ground contact or a marine environment.
Preservative pre-treatments must be fully dry before the application of Rubbol Primer plus and Rubbol AZ plus. Do not use on substrates which have had water-repellent preservative pre-treatments applied. Where possible, the first coat should be applied all round prior to fixing.
When filling, be sure to use fillers specifically designed for use with timber. General or all-purpose fillers are not suitable, particularly on external areas, as they cannot cope with timber movement and work loose. Only use non-ferrous screws, nails and fixings.
For Base stained/primed timbers â
Denib using a fine grade nylon abrasive pad or a fine grade (P240 or finer) wet or dry silicon carbide abrasive paper, in the direction of the grain. Do not break through the surface coating. Remove all dust.
To ensure optimum durability, we recommend the use of a coat of Rubbol Primer plus prior to finishing.
Note : Damaged or decayed timber - All damaged or decayed timber must be removed and replaced, cutting at least 25mm into sound timber. When splicing in new sections of timber, consideration should be given to the use of a timber species whose natural durability is sufficient. For less durable timber, brush apply two coats of Cuprinol Wood Preserver ClearBP to saturation. Ensure timbers are thoroughly treated, especially any end grain sections, and are fully dry before splicing in. Secure with non-ferrous fixings and fill all voids surrounding the spliced-in area with a suitable repair system such as Dry-Flex from RepairCare.
For use on exterior hardwood and softwood joinery and trim as well as suitably primed metals and hard plastics.
