Preparation

Treatex Classic Colour Collection works best on unfinished timber. Previous porous finishes should be thoroughly cleaned or lightly sanded before overcoating. Flaking or peeling finishes must be fully removed prior to application. A trial application is essential when overcoating another finish. Ensure the timber is dry and free from possible contaminates e.g. algae, grease, dirt, dust etc. Exterior timbers susceptible to decay, mould and fungi should be treated first with Treatex Preservative. To help prevent staining, exterior timbers with high tannin levels (e.g. oak, idigbo, teak, cedar, mahogany) should be treated with Treatex Stain Inhibitor. We advise that when using Treatex Classic Colour Collection, sufficient product is purchased to complete the whole project and when more than one tin is required it is advisable to mix them together before use. Timber must have a moisture content below 18%. Temperature must be greater than 8°𝖼 during application and drying. We strongly recommend a trial application prior to starting the project.

Application

Stir tins thoroughly, before and during use. Use a brush or roller to evenly apply Treatex Classic Colour Collection in the same direction as the wood grain, allowing approximately 40ml
per m². If possible, apply the first coat to all sides of the wood before installation. Pay particular attention to any end grain. To ensure the timber is fully sealed apply the product liberally on end grain. After approximately 12 hours drying the first coat can be overcoated. Apply with a brush or roller a second coat of Treatex Classic Colour Collection, again allowing roughly 40ml per m². After the second coat, leave for approximately 12-24 hours to dry. A third coat may be needed if applying a light colour on a dark timber. One coat may be enough when renovating previously porous finishes.


Tips

Treatex brushes and rollers are available. Wet brushes and rollers can be cleaned with Treatex Thinner or white spirit. Store tins in a cool and frost free environment. Unopened tins will last for five years. Once tins are opened, transfer contents to smaller airtight container. For a different sheen level on internal timbers Treatex Classic Colour Collection can be overcoated with Treatex Hardwax Oil Clear Matt, Satin or Gloss.
