SURFACE PREPARATION: Can be used over previously painted and stained wood that is in good condition. If general peeling is present all previous coatings should be removed. Optimal performance is achieved when the product is applied to a clean, dry and absorbent wood substrate.
New Wood: Smooth planed wood siding, trim, or deck boards must be sanded thoroughly or treated with Benjamin Moore® Brighten, Brightener & Neutralizer (317) to break the “mill glaze” and allow proper penetration and adhesion. After prep is complete, test for penetration by applying a few drops of water to the dry substrate. If the water does not quickly penetrate, repeat prep or consult your Benjamin Moore® retailer.
Weathered Wood: Prior to staining, weathered wood must be treated with Benjamin Moore® Restore, for Gray & Weathered Wood (N316), following label directions, until a sound surface is obtained (loose or damaged wood fibers removed). Previously Stained Surfaces: Can be used over previously painted and stained wood that is in good condition. If general peeling is present on decks all previous coatings should be removed by sanding with an On Floor machine or using Benjamin Moore® Remove, Finish Remover (315).
Un-weathered areas such as eaves, ceilings, overhangs or protected wall areas must be washed with Benjamin Moore® Clean, (N318) and rinsed with a strong stream from a garden hose to remove surface salts that can interfere with proper adhesion.
Weathered Composite Decks: Prior to Staining, the entire area should be properly cleaned using Benjamin Moore® Composite Deck Cleaner (313). Allow the cleaned deck to completely dry prior to staining.
Mildew: Stains from mildew must be removed by cleaning with Benjamin Moore® Clean (N318) prior to coating the surface. Caution: Refer to the 313, 315, N316, 317 and N318 technical data and material safety data sheets for instructions on their proper use and handling.
APPLICATION: Stir thoroughly before using and often during application. Apply using a synthetic bristle brush, roller, or spray. Back-brushing is recommended with roller or spray application. To help eliminate lap marks, stain only a few boards at a time keeping the leading edge “wet.” Do not stain when temperature of air and surface is below 40 °F (4.4 °C). CAUTION: The stained deck may become slippery when wet.
