Blackfriar Exterior Woodstain is a high build, structured woodstain that stains, protects and finishes all in one. Its weather resistant, water-repellent satin finish resists flaking, peeling and cracking. For all exterior timber, hard or softwoods, rough or smooth. Ideal for joinery, garden furniture, cladding, fencing and sheds.
Ensure surface to be treated is clean, dry, sound and free from wax, oil or any other contamination. Bare wood should be sanded to a smooth surface, always working with the grain - do not use wire wool as this may discolour the timber. Oily woods such as Teak or Iroko should be cleaned with white spirit prior to application. Previously painted or varnished surfaces should be stripped back to bare wood using Blackfriar Professional Paint and Varnish Remover.
Any excess resinous deposits around knots should be scraped off and the area cleaned with white spirit. Building regulations require that all new timber is treated with a wood preservative. We recommend applying a first coat of Blackfriar Goldstar Clear Wood Preserver under this woodstain. Blackfriar Traditional Exterior Woodstain may be used over most modern wood preservers. Ensure new or bare timber is adequately preserved prior to applying wood finishes, apply Blackfriar Goldstar Clear Wood Preservative to untreated timbers where required.
Stir thoroughly prior to use. Apply a minimum of 3 coats by brush. Apply evenly using light strokes following the grain of the wood. For surfaces exposed to severe weather conditions, a fourth coat is recommended. If the colour obtained with one coat is suitable, finish with one or two coats of Blackfriar Exterior Woodstain in Clear.
Prior to application of the final coat or if the overcoating time is exceeded, lightly abrade with fine glass paper working with the grain and remove dust. Provided the timber and coatings are in good condition, further coats of Blackfriar Exterior Woodstain in Clear may be applied, as and when neccessary, to freshen up the finish - clean and abrade prior to application.
Do not apply in wet or frosty conditions. The final shade of the varnish depends upon the orginal colour and absorbency of the wood. We recommend to test for shade on an off-cut or inconspicuous area. For a clear finish on smooth new timber, Blackfriar Exterior Woodstain in Clear may be used with a minimum of 3 coats. Clear coats are not as durable as coloured finishes so will require more regular maintenance. Application of Blackfriar UV Wood Primer prior to the Clear Exterior Woodstain will prolong the life of the coating.
Remove as much product as possible from application equipment before washing with white spirit. Do not empty into drains or water courses. Some local authorities have special facilities for the disposal of waste coatings.
