Stir thoroughly before use. Wearing suitable protective gloves, apply by brush, ensuring a generous even coverage. Leave until previous coating begins to blister and test scrape area at intervals to see if the bare deck begins to show. If required, the product can be left for up to 4 hours to maximise penetration through all of the paint layers. Remove with a stripping knife. Use water to clean surface, or white spirit to avoid raising the grain of the wood. Collect waste and dispose of safely. Should any paint remain please repeat the process before finishing with an appropriate Cuprinol oil or stain. Do not apply in temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius or if rain is likely before the job is complete.
