Recommendation before use

  • Surfaces to be coated must be free of all dirt, grease, grime and previous coatings.
  • New wood :the ideal time to finish new wood is 1 to 3 months after installation.
  • All new wood surfaces should be treated with Prepdeck and used in accordance with the Prepdeck label instructions.

  • Weathered wood surfaces (greyed or blackened) :
  • Treat with Prepdeck diluted up to a maximum of 1 part Prepdeck to 20 parts chlorine bleach/water solution (1 part bleach: 3 parts water), scrub in to surface and leave in accordance with Prepdeck label instructions.
  • Follow with pressure washer (max 50 bars) using fresh water

Application

  • Stir thoroughly before and periodically during application.
  • Allow first coat to dry (approx 1 – 2 hrs at 23˚C).
  • Apply second coat as soon as first coat is dry
  • After second coat is dry inspect the finish. If finish has a uniform sheen and lustre, the proper amount of material was applied. If the finish looks blotchy or lacks uniformity apply a third coat of Tropitech “All in one”.
  • For heavy traffic areas i.e. walkways, decks, docks etc or for better resistance, a third coat should be applied.
  • Note: Stained surfaces may become slippery when wet. Use caution when walking on surfaces where moisture is apparent.
  • Once preparation steps are completed and the surface has been thoroughly rinsed, begin application of the first coat of Tropitech “All in one”.
  • If finish has a uniform sheen and luster, the proper amount of material was applied. If the finish looks blotchy or lacks uniformity apply a second coat of Tropitech “All in one”.
