TWP® 100 SERIES penetrates deeply into wood without excessive surface film build, highlighting existing grain patterns with amazing clarity and warmth and is specifically designed to provide protection against the four major causes of wood degradation: wood rot, water, sunlight & mildew.
TWP® 100 SERIES will not crack, peel or blister making maintenance an easy task to perform for extended wood protection.
Refer to the Product Data Sheet (PDS) or Product Brochure for preparation, cleaning and application instructions. This product is for above ground use only. TWP dealers can find additional product information on the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS).
Unprotected old wood is typically various shades of gray to black due to mildew and ultraviolet light attack on the wood surface. Old wood should be cleaned with a solution of 1 part household bleach to 1 part water. The bleached surface should be thoroughly rinsed with water; power washed and then allowed to dry a minimum of 48 hour in good drying conditions before finish coat application.
TWP is a penetrating system and is not designed to build a film. Only apply to properly prepared clean, dry and absorbent bare wood. TWP should dry uniformly flat with no glossy areas. Only apply when the temperature is 50-85°F. Do not apply when rain is expected within 48 hours of application. Mix thoroughly before and occasionally during use. For best results, apply by brush. Only apply as much material as the wood can absorb. On horizontal surfaces apply an initial coat at 300-400 sq. ft./gal. Coat boards lengthwise maintaining a wet edge to avoid lap marks. If spraying, back brush to work material uniformly into the wood. Allow material to penetrate 10-15 minutes and then apply a second coat at 400-500 sq. ft./gal. Typically a two coat application is adequate, but wood porosity may dictate the use of more or less TWP. Do not allow material to pool or puddle. Remove any liquid material that remains on the wood surface 10-15 minutes after the application of the final coat with a dry brush, roller, applicator pad or cloth. Excessive TWP that does not penetrate and is not removed from the surface will leave a shiny film and extend dry time. Because horizontal surfaces are subject to harsher conditions (foot traffic, standing water, deck furniture, spills etc.) than vertical surfaces, they may require more frequent maintenance coats.
Dry time will vary greatly depending on the amount absorbed, wood species and weather conditions, but is typically 24-48 hours.
