Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain


Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain (recommended replacement for the discontinued Jotun Butinox 1) is a water based transparent treatment for exterior wood, based on a unique combination of alkyd/acrylic resins and reinforced with components blocking UV radiation. This offers better protection than the standard translucent stain products and can protect timber for up to 8 years.

Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain is a modern hybrid stain based on AMA technology (alkyd modified acrylate) and therfore state-of-the-art. Through this combination the properties of both types of binder are brought together in one product. The result is not only good and long-lasting adhesion to the coated substrate, but also outstanding UV protection. Consequently the colour and gloss level of the stain are retained for longer.

Features & Benefits

  • Superb adhesion and flexibility
  • 8 year life expectancy
  • Protects against fungal and algal attack
  • UV stable binder & UV blocking pigments
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Water thinnable hybrid stain
  • Improved renovation intervals
  • Wide colour range

Environmentally friendly with low VOC emissions Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain can be used on new woodwork, pressure impregnated and previously painted wood. It flows well, is easy to apply and dries quickly. As primer on new woodwork, use Jotun Visir Clear Primer.

Demidekk Translucent Woodstain offers significant environmental benefits with beautiful coloured translucent stains that can protect timber for up to 8 years. This level of performance has traditionally only been possible with solvent based coatings, but with VOC levels below 50g/l Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain is second to none. Touch dry in 2 hours, it has rapid drying time and in warm, dry conditions 2 coats can be applied in the same day.

Demidekk Translucent Woodstain offers both high product quality and, additionally, excellent features for use;

  • Odourless
  • Short drying times
  • Good retention of the woods texture
  • Hybrid technology makes long, above average stability possible.

Coating Sequence


  • Jotun Visir Clear Primer
  • 2 - 3 coats of Demidekk Translucent Woodstain in desired colour


  • Sand away old, loose and unsound existing coatings and greyed wood down to a sound, healthy substrate
  • Prime bare areas of wood with Jotun Visir Clear Primer
  • 2 - 3 coats of Demidekk Translucent Woodstain in desired colour

Building elements subject to especially severe stresses - e.g. balcony rails, horizontal building elements, etc. - should be given additional coats. Surfaces coated with Demidekk Translucent Woodstain that were treated beforehand with Jotun Visir Clear Primer provide optimum protection for wood in an outdoor environment for many years.

Demidekk Translucent Woodstain is perfect for enhancing the natural beauty of wood, having a low build and low sheen finish. Formulated using the latest alkyd and acrylic technology, it ensures superb adhesion and flexibility. With anti-fungal agents, UV filters and excellent water repellence, you can be sure of a finish that will look good for years.

It can be used on directly onto previously coated substrates and new wood. It is easy to apply with brush, roller or spray gun. We recommend Jotun Visir Clear Primer with 2 coats of Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain for the best results. Always use a preparatory filler where old wood is damaged.

Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain is the start of a new generation of stains from Jotun. The combination of binders used here offers a number of advantages in comparison with conventional stains. The film has good elasticity and therby reduces the premature appearance of microcracks in the surface. Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain is able to compensate effectively for stresses arising from the swelling and shrikage behaviour of wood substrates.

However, the technology is not entirely new in Jotun. These advantages are already known from our opaque wood stains, which are characterised by unusually long renovation intervals.

Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain has low susceptibility to microorganisms and surface fungi. Surface fungi are air-dispersed fungi, the spores of which are carried by the air. If conditions such as temperature and humidity are favourable, this fungus appears on almost all surfaces that offer a suitable medium. With Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain your wood surface will remain free of surface fungi and green algae for many years.

questions Anne Nugent on 10/08/2015

Can I use Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain over a previously stained fence. I think it was cuprinol garden shades paint in a light stone colour?


Yes you can, after washing and wire brushing, apply one coat of Jotun Visir Clear Primer on bare and porous wood followed by 1-2 coats of Jotun Demidekk Translucent Woodstain as required. We recommend you test a small area prior to application to ensure compatibility between the Jotun and Cuprinol products.
