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, allow wood to dry 2-3 good drying days or until it has reached a moisture content of 18% or less before applying D.1 PRO.
  • D.1 PRO may only be applied to bare wood surfaces or a weathered wood surface that was previously finished with D.1 PRO. All other finishes must be completely and thoroughly removed.
  • If necessary sand surface after cleaning and/or stripping (80 grit paper).

New wood surfaces:

  • New wood surfaces have a hard shiny surface called mill-glaze that prevents maximum penetration and adhesion of any finish, this should be removed to ensure maximum performance the finish.
  • Treat with Aquanett or Prepdeck and neutralise with Net-Trol.

Weathered wood surfaces (untreated):

  • Wood that has weathered longer than 12 months or turned grey should be cleaned with Net-Trol to remove all loose wood fibres, dirt and other surface contaminants. If wood is severely contaminated, clean with Prepdeck or Aquanett and neutralise with Net-Trol.

Previously oiled surfaces:

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

Previously coated surfaces (paint, stain, varnish etc):

  • All previous coatings must be completely and thoroughly removed with Dilunett, Prepdeck or DSP 800.
  • Solvent (oil or alkyd based finishes): Strip with Dilunett neutralise with Net-Trol.
  • Acrylic finishes – Water-based: Strip with Prepdeck neutralise with Net-Trol.
  • Other finishes i.e. 2 pack epoxies, urethan etc strip with DSP 800.

Note:

Hardwoods including exotic hardwoods and woods rich in tannins i.e. Oak, Chestnut, Teak, Ipe, Bangkar etc may darken with Aquanett, Prepdeck or Dilunett, neutralising with Net-Trol  immediately after rinsing will lighten and restore the woods colour.

Interior:

  • Thoroughly remove any existing coatings with DSP 800 or by mechanical abrasion.
  • Sand surface with 80 or 100 grit paper to open the woods’ pores.
  • Dust off and wash with Methylated Spirits (Denatured Alcohol), Acetone or similar (NOT White Spirit) to degrease the surface.
  • Allow to dry

Application

  • Shake or stir can well before use.
  • Start by applying a 1st liberal application of D.1 PRO to an area that can be treated in 15 minutes and allow to penetrate (normally 15-30 minutes).
  • Apply a 2nd application as soon as the first has penetrated and allow to penetrate.
  • Continue this “wet-on-wet” application of D.1 PRO until wood is saturated i.e. will accept no more oil.
  • Leave final application 20-30 minutes then brush out or wipe up excess product that has not penetrated to avoid shiny spots.
  • Do not allow D.1 PRO to become touch dry or dry between applications.

Note:

D.1 PRO is not a surface coating, its place is in the wood not on the surface. D.1 PRO protects by penetrating the wood, providing a rich matt finish.
