Stir thoroughly before use. Final colour will depend upon wood type, previous treatment and the number of coats applied. Apply 2-3 coats evenly along the grain, avoiding overlaps. When applying subsequent coats, allow each coat to dry fully before recoating. Avoid heavy wear and tear for a few days after application. On previously stained decking, touch up bare areas and allow to dry before finishing with further coats. Do not apply in temperatures below 5C, in damp conditions or if rain is likely before the product has dried. If using more than one can it is advisable to mix them together in a larger container or finish in a corner before starting a new can.
