Treatex Eco Colours works best on unfinished timber. Previous porous finishes should be thoroughly cleaned or lightly sanded before overcoating. Flaking or peeling finishes must be fully removed prior to application. A trial application is essential when overcoating another finish. Ensure the timber is dry and free from possible contaminates e.g. algae, grease, dirt, dust etc. To help prevent staining, exterior timbers with high tannin levels (e.g. oak, idigbo, teak, cedar, mahogany) should be treated with Treatex Stain Inhibitor. We advise that when using Treatex Eco colours, sufficient product is purchased to complete the whole project and when more than one tin is required it is advisable to mix them together before use. Timber must have a moisture content below 18%. Temperature must be between 8oc and 25oc and humidity should be below 65% during application and drying. We strongly recommend a trial application prior to starting the project.
Stir (don’t shake) the tins thoroughly before and during use (note – the technology involved in producing this product means the appearance of the paint in the tin may be different to the colour identified on the front of the tin, however, once dry it will represent the swatch colour). Using a brush or roller, apply Treatex Eco colours evenly, with the grain. If possible, apply to all sides before an installation. Pay particular attention to any exposed end grain by applying sufficient produce to seal it. The finish will be touch dry after approximately 3 hours and can be over coated after 8 hours. Wet and cold weather or high humidity can increase the drying time. Treatex dries by oxidisation so providing adequate air flow is beneficial.
Apply 60-85ml/m² per coat. For internal use, 2 coats are sufficient. For external use, 3 coats will provide more protection.
Treatex brushes and rollers are available. Wet brushes and rollers can be cleaned in warm, soapy water (remove as much excess product before washing).
Colours can be mixed to achieve your desired tone.
