Intended Use Intended use bare wood, veneered wood, hardboard, MDF and unsealed cork. For interior use only.
Preparation The surface must be clean, smooth, dry and free from wax, dust and contaminants. Nail holes and small cracks may be filled with Rustins Woodfiller. Bare wood may be dyed before coating with Rustins Wood Dye. Other brands of dye & stain should be tested for compatibility. Do not apply Knotting or Sanding Sealer.
Application The mixing ratio is 1 part Hardener to 4 parts Coating by volume. Once mixed, it may be used for up to two days, if covered and kept cool. Use a brush, roller or lambs wool pad and apply evenly and liberally, finishing in the direction of the grain.
Coats Two coats are usually sufficient on hardwood. Softwoods and cork may require a minimum of 3 coats, depending on the absorbency of wood.
Drying Time Generally touch-dry within 30 minutes–1 hour, depending on the temperature and humidity.
Re-coating Time May be re-coated after 1 hour.
Application Temp. Ideally 15-25°C. Do not use below 15°C, or in conditions of high humidity.
Maintenance The surface may be kept clean by wiping with a mild detergent solution. Worn areas may be re-coated once cleaned and sanded, to provide a key.
Compatibility The coating may be used over Rustin's Wood Filler, Rustin's Wood Dye and wood may be bleached before coating, with Rustin’s Wood Bleach. Important. If any other products are used, such as timber treatments or other brands of dye and stain, test first for compatibility.
