Surface Preparation

General Directions

  • Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, grime, mildew and previous coatings.
  • Treat mildew with a 50/50 bleach/water solution. Scrub solution on to surface and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes; rinse thoroughly.
  • After cleaning and/or stripping, allow wood to dry 2-3 good drying days or until it has reached a moisture content of 18% or less before applying finish.
  • Antislip can only be applied to bare wood surfaces or weathered surfaces previously finished with Antislip . All other finishes MUST be completely and thoroughly removed.
  • If necessary sand surface after cleaning and/or stripping (80 grit paper).
  • New planed, smooth wood has a hard shiny surface called mill glaze that prevents maximum penetration and bonding of any finish; this should be removed prior to application in order to ensure proper performance of the finish.

New wood surfaces:

  • Treat with Aquanett or Prepdeck, neutralise with Net-Trol, alternatively mechanically abrade surface with 80 grit paper. Clean off all loose wood particles. Test wood for absorbency by sprinkling water on the surface.
  • If water is absorbed rapidly, the surface is ready for finishing.

Untreated weathered woods

  • Untreated wood surfaces that have weathered longer than 12 months should be thoroughly cleaned with undiluted Net-Trol to ensure that all loose wood fibres, dirt and other surface contaminants are removed.

Previously treated surfaces (oiled)

  • All oils or sealers must be completely and thoroughly removed with Aquanett or Prepdeck and the stripped surface neutralised with Net-Trol.

Previously treated surfaces (paint, stain, varnish etc)

  • All previous coatings must be completely and thoroughly removed.

Solvent (oil or alkyd based finishes)

Acrylic (Water-based) finishes

Other finishes e.g. 2 pack epoxies, urethanes etc

  • Strip with DSP 800, neutralise by mechanically sanding or rinse surface with a suitable solvent – Warm Water, Acetone, White Spirits etc

Note: Hardwoods including exotic hardwoods and woods rich in tannins i.e. Cedar, Douglas Fir, Teak, Ipe, Iroko etc may darken with Aquanett, Prepdeck and Dilunett, neutralising with Net-Trol immediately after rinsing will lighten and restore the woods colour. Oak and Chestnut please contact us for additional information and advice.
