Weathershield Preservative Basecoat+ is a solvent-based timber preservative for use on new and bare wood, providing excellent protection against blue stain and UV rays. It produces a sound base for Weathershield Woodstain AP, Weathershield Opaque AP, Weathershield Yacht Varnish or Dulux Trade Protective Woodsheen.
Before preparing any surface for painting, read the Safety, Health & Environmental information on page 2 about old lead-based paints.
1, 2.5 and 5 Litre.
Fine Quality Transparent Iron Oxides
Oil Modified Alkyd plus fungicide.
Aliphatic hydrocarbon solvent.
Do not thin this product.
Brush only. Do not spray.
Single coat at standard thickness:
Either within 2 hours or after fully dry which is 16-24 hours.
A guide to the practical coverage which can be achieved under normal conditions is up to 12 m2 /litre depending on the porosity of the wood.
After use, remove as much basecoat as possible from brushes before cleaning with white spirit.
Do not use or store in extremes of temperature.
Surfaces must be sound, clean and dry before treating.
Remove all loose and defective coatings, if necessary stripping back to bare wood.
Where the surface has been previously painted, it will be necessary to strip back to bare wood.
Remove and treat any mould, algae, lichen or moss with *Weathershield Multi-Surface Fungicidal Wash.
Remove defective glazing material, clean the rebates and any loose or open joints.
Replace any rotten wood and troublesome knots with new preservative treated timber.
Thoroughly rub down all surfaces in the direction of the grain to remove any grey, weathered wood and and dust off. Avoid the inhalation of dust. Wear a suitable face mask if dry sanding.
Mix the Weathershield Preservative Basecoat+ thoroughly by shaking the container. Pour out a sufficient amount of basecoat for the job into a suitable metal container.
Do not use direct from the can or return any unused basecoat to the container. Do not thin.
Prime all bare wood with 1 coat of Weathershield Preservative Basecoat+ including any new or bare replacement beading.
Excess basecoat should be wiped off surrounding paintwork.
Fill any surface defects, open joints etc. and replace any missing glazing material. Do not use linseed oil putty for glazing (or making good) with natural wood finishes, use external beads set in an appropriate non-setting mastic or a special glazing compound.
When using Weathershield Opaque AP, treat any knots and resinous areas by removing resin and applying a thin coat of a Dulux Trade Knotting Solution, in order to help prevent discolouration. The normal finishing process is 2 coats of Weathershield Woodstain AP, Weathershield Opaque AP, Weathershield Yacht Varnish or Dulux Trade Protective Woodsheen as appropriate.
New joinery is often factory primed using a stain basecoat (also called a dual-purpose primer). These materials quickly erode when left exposed and may need to be re-primed. When treating timber that has been pressure impregnated with preservative ensure that the surface is completely dry. The use of silicone sealants can cause “cissing” of this product.
Do not use on resinous wood or woodwork with a history of blistering. The maximum benefits of this system will only be realised when used as directed above on good quality timber that conforms to BS EN 942: 1996 (or as amended), in conjunction with good component design.
