Product Description

Cetol Filter 7 is a highly durable, medium build, solvent-borne woodstain that provides a highly translucent, satin finish and offers outstanding protection from the damaging effects of sunlight. Highly translucent to bring out the beauty of woodgrain, 5 year maintenance cycle, Excellent resistance to UV radiation, Microporous and water-repellent and very easy application and maintenance.

Application Description

Ensure product is thoroughly stirred before and during application, otherwise sheen and colour variations may be experienced. Cetol Filter 7 plus is supplied ready for use. Do not thin. Cetol HLS plus should be used as a basestain for joinery items prior to coating with Cetol Filter 7 plus. For best results use a good quality, long-haired soft bristle brush.The product should be applied in a full flowing coat, laying off in the direction of the grain, using the minimum number of brushstrokes necessary to produce an acceptable finish. Avoid overbrushing, as this will reduce the protection afforded. Applyto a minimum wet film thickness of 55 micrometres. Conditions - Do not apply if there is a risk of rain, or when air/substrate temperatures are below 5ºC or above 30ºC during application or drying periods. Protect from frost and rain until dry.Failure to meet these requirements may adversely affect the drying, visual quality and durability of the finish.Two coats of Cetol Filter 7 plus should be applied, allowing a minimum of 16 hours drying time between coats. On new work, where practical, the first coat should be applied all round prior to fixing. Pay special attention to any areas of exposed end grain,tops and bottoms of doors, and undersides of cills. The second coat should be applied to all exposed surfaces, as soon as possible after the first coat has dried, but no sooner than 16 hours.

Tips & Advice

  • 1. Preparing the Surfaces
    Ensure the timber surface is suitably prepared, clean and dry, with dust, dirt, wax and grease removed, and allowed to acclimatize 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 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 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. We do not recommend the use of “knotting agents” with translucent finishes as they are not always fully effective in “sealing in” resin, the presence of knots is often highlighted and adhesion of coatings can be impaired. 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. 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 Clear (BP). For Class 4 (in ground contact) and 5 (marine) use pre-treated wood specific for these conditions. Preservative pre-treatments must be fully dry before the application of Cetol Filter 7 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. Only use non-ferrous screws, nails and fixings. Base stained joinery : 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 and uniformity of appearance, we recommend the use of a coat of Cetol HLS plus prior to finishing. Note: Where there is localised damage, or deterioration has occurred as a result of exposure of the factory coating for longer than 3 months, affected areas should be thoroughly sanded back to a sound substrate. All damaged or decayed timber must be removed and replaced, cutting at least 25mm into sound timber. We do not recommend the use of wood hardeners. When splicing in new sections of timber, consideration should be given to the use of a timber species whose natural durability is sufficient. Brush apply two coats of Cuprinol Wood Preserver Clear (BP) 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 compound such as Dry-Flex from Repair Care.
  • 2. Cleaning
    Clean brushes and equipment with brush cleaner immediately after use. If spilled, Cetol Filter 7 plus may be removed immediately while still wet,using white spirit
  • 3. Storing
