Usage Summary
Preparation

The following steps are recommended for best results.

  • Use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper to remove loose wood fibers, latex, oil-based and 100% acrylic coatings on new or weathered wood.
  • BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner MUST be used following NO. 64 to clean, brighten & neutralize wood.
  • When NO. 64 is not needed, use a product such as NO. 63 to clean and brighten the wood surface and to remove light to medium stains caused by mold, mildew, algae & fungus. On new wood, use a product such as NO. 63 to remove mill glaze and open the pores of the wood.
  • Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before coating.
  • Lightly sand any remaining wood fibers/fuzz.
Application
  • Must apply between 5-32˚ C. Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The wood surface must be completely dry before application.
  • Intermix multiple containers to ensure colour uniformity. DO NOT THIN PRODUCT.
  • Stir product occasionally throughout application. Test product for colour on a small hidden area before proceeding.
  • Use a 10 mm nap roller or nylon/polyester bristle brush. Airless sprayer with a .38 mm - .48 mm (.015 - .019") tip is recommended for experienced applicators only.
  • Maintenance re-coating may be achieved by applying 2 coats at a spread rate of 18-37 m2 (200-400 sq. ft.) per 3.79 L over a clean, sound surface.
  • Clean and recoat surface when finish no longer has gloss or luster or if the film is broken.
  • Thoroughly seal the ends of the boards and all porous areas such as knots with several thin coats.
  • Maintain a wet edge when applying. Back-brush during all application methods.
  • Apply product end-to-end or to board lengths to prevent lap marks. Over application of finish will lead to surface failure including peeling and cracking.
