TWP 1500 STAIN SURFACE PREPARATION:
NEW WOOD: New wood should be allowed 4 to 12 months of natural weathering before finish coat application. After aging, 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 hours in good drying conditions before finish coat application.
OLD WOOD: 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 hours in good drying conditions before finish coat application.
SEALED WOOD: Any previously applied finish must be removed before TWP can be applied. The surface should be cleaned with a solution of 1 part household bleach to 1 part water and should then be thoroughly rinsed with water. Finish can be removed with an appropriate stripper following label instructions, by sanding with 60-80 grit sand paper, or by power washing. If sanded, the surface should be thoroughly rinsed with water 2-3 different days after sanding. Allow wood to dry a minimum of 48 hours in good drying conditions before finish coat application.
METHOD OF APPLICATION: Use brush, applicator pad, pump up sprayer or airless sprayer. If spray applied, back brush for best results.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
MIX THOROUGHLY BEFORE AND OCCASIONALLY DURING USE.
TWP is a penetrating system and is not designed to build a film. Only apply TWP to properly prepared, clean, absorbent, bare wood. TWP should dry uniformly flat with no glossy areas. Only apply TWP when the temperature is 50-90° F. Do not apply TWP when rain is expected within 48 hours of application. Mix TWP thoroughly before and occasionally during use. On horizontal surfaces, apply an initial coat at 300-400 sq. ft/gal. Allow material to penetrate 15-30 minutes and then apply a second coat at 400-500 sq. ft/gal. Typically a two coat application using this procedure is adequate, but wood porosity may dictate the use of more or less TWP. Remove any liquid material that remains on the wood surface 30-60 minutes after the application of the second coat with a brush, dry roller, applicator pad or dry cloth. Excessive TWP that does not penetrate and is not removed from the surface will leave a shiny oily film, extend dry time and cause premature failure. One coat application may be adequate for vertical surfaces when finish is applied at saturation rate, as indicated when material starts to run down surface.
DRY TIME: 24-72 hours depending on drying conditions and assuming proper application.
THINNING: No thinning required.
CLEANUP: Use mineral spirits for equipment clean up.
WARNING: This product is toxic to fish. Do not contaminate water by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wastes.
Rag Disposal- Lay used rags in a single layer outdoors and allow to air dry for 24 hours. To minimize the chance of spontaneous combustion typical of natural drying oils, place rags in a water filled metal container for disposal.
