Cuprinol Shed & Fence Protector(FP) is a lightly tinted formulation that penetrates deep into the wood to give natural, rustic looking colour to both rough sawn and smooth planed timber. It also contains water repellents to help resist rain penetration.
Ensure that the wood to be treated is clean, dry and free from surface dirt, loose debris and any other contaminants.
Shake tin well before use and frequently during use. This is important to achieve a uniform colour. Apply 2-3 uniform coats with a brush. Apply the second coat after the first has soaked in. The exact colour may be affected by any previous treatment and is darker on sawn, more absorbent, weathered and dark wood. Try a representative area first, to ensure acceptable appearance when dry. Protect plants during application. Allow treated fences etc. to dry thoroughly before refixing plants. Do not splash on plastic, plaster, paint or masonry. Do not spill on asphalt, bitumen, bitumen felt, tar or mastics. Bitumen, rubber and some plastic based materials may soften or swell in contact with the fluid or solvent vapour.
The drying time is 2-5 days. Drying times can vary depending on the nature of the surface and the weather conditions.
After use: Remove as much product as possible from equipment before cleaning. For best results use Polycell Brush Cleaner. Do not use or store in extremes of temperature.
Cuprinol Shed and Fence Protector can be easily maintained as and when required by applying a fresh coat, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.
