Applying Monocel Gold Decking Oil


1. Preparation

  • All surfaces to be coated must be clean, dry and free of oil, grease or dirt.
  • Any existing coating must be checked for good adhesion. Any loosely adhered coating must be removed.
  • All nail holes should be filled with a water-based filler. Sand the filler back prior to coating.

2. Application

  • Stir well before and during use with a broad flat paddle.
  • Use a good quality soft, clean paintbrush, applicator pad, short nap roller or by spray. If large areas are to be coated we recommend the use of a short nap mohair roller to assist with application.
  • Reapply as timber changes colour or decreased water repellency is observed.

3. Drying Time

  • Touch dry in 4 hours but it is recommended that the product be left a minimum 24 hrs before recoating.
  • Then lightly sand the surface with 240 grit sandpaper.
  • Thoroughly dust the surface (a tack rag is recommended) before recoating./li>
