Applying Monocel All Purpose Timber Sealer

3simplesteps

1. Preparation

  • All surfaces should be clean and dry, free from wax, oil, grease and other contaminates.
  • New dressed timber should be fine sanded and then thoroughly dusted prior to the application of the sealer coat this includes filling any holes.
  • It may be necessary to wipe the surface down with a mild sugar soap solution prior to coating it.

2. Application

  • Stir well with a wide flat paddle before and during use.
  • Apply liberally to all surfaces including exposed edges and end grain by brush, applicator pad or spray.
  • Stir well before and during use.
    DO NOT SHAKE the contents, as shaking will produce bubbles, which may become trapped on the surface.
  • Ensure adequate ventilation during use.

3. Drying Time

  • Allow drying for 30 minutes before applying the second coat. Allow 1-3 hours drying before top coating.
  • Apply each coat neat and evenly. Proper penetration of the first coat is very important.
  • Should only one coat be applied check for beading of water to indicate the coating is effective.
  • Drying may take longer if the weather is cold or humid.

Coverage

Up to 10 square metres per litre depending on the porosity and application technique.

Coats

Thinning

If spraying, coats can be thinned with 10-15% clean mineral turpentine to aid application.
