The colours here are a representation of 2 x coats on Western Red Cedar. All natural wood tones are different, even within species so the end result can vary greatly. You should use the original colour of your selected wood as a guide and if you are unsure about what Colourtone to select, contact us for advice and/or grab a free pre-mixed colour sample pot from a store near you.

Important

DO NOT USE on surfaces which come into direct contact with foodstuffs, eg use in packing cases or places where food is prepared or stored.

DO NOT USE on surfaces which come into direct contact with the ground.

All cutting, drilling, moulding and planning should be done before treatment. Wood components should be treated before joining or fixing

New Wood

Ensure that timber to be coated is clean and dry. CUTEK Wood Preservative can be used on treated timber, however wood with mill glaze, or pre-treated with wax and polymer processes such as LOSP may require cleaning first with CUTEK Proclean.

Old, or Previously Coated Wood

Old, dirty, stained or weathered timber should be prepared by first applying CUTEK Proclean restoration agent, then power rinsing with a high-pressure washer set to under 750 p.s.i. (50 bar), with a fan jet pattern to avoid damage to the wood fibre. Once the timber is thoroughly dry, apply two coats of CUTEK Wood Preservative.

Wood previously coated with a film forming product such as stains, linseed oil, paint, polyurethane, etc., must first be restored with CUTEK CD33 Naked paint stripper and CUTEK Proclean prior to the application of CUTEK Wood Preservative. This process can be complex, so view the videos on this website for more information.

The results achieved from restoration are dramatic and rewarding – the original natural colour and beauty of wood can be restored.

Before you get started

Before you begin, note the hazards and precautions on this website and the can labelling, and ensure that you use the correct safety equipment as detailed in the Safety Data Sheet.

Step by step application process

Avoid contact with plants, shrubs, trees and waterways. For best results, use a brush, paint pad or roller to apply one coat of CUTEK Wood Preservative to all faces of the wood prior to installing, with a second coat applied to the top surface once the first coat is completely dry. Spray application is not recommended.

Wood must feel completely dry and non- one coat of CUTEK Wood Preservative should be applied to all faces of the wood prior to installing, with a second coat applied to the top surface once the first coat is completely dry. Penetration time varies significantly, depending on species, temperature, porosity, and moisture content of the wood. Thicker sections such as post, beams and logs will require additional coats, as CUTEK Wood Preservative has a cumulative effect in the wood.

Apply each coat evenly with brush, paintpad or roller. When using CUTEK Colourtone it is essential that the container holding the oil be stirred frequently both before and during use. Two or three thin coats on finished wood and hardwoods are better that one or two thick coats.

Wood must feel completely dry and non-greasy before application of the second coat.

Do not handle treated timber until the product solution has dried. If prior handling is required, wear elbow-length chemical resistant gloves.

Always remember that CUTEK Wood Preservative is toxic to fish and aquatic invertebrates. DO NOT contaminate streams, rivers or waterways with the chemical or used container.

Cleanup

Equipment may be cleaned with soap and water or turps. Oily rags and other oily materials may cause combustion fires. Immediately after use you MUST (1) spread out all oily materials outside to dry, by flattening them out to their full size in an airy spot at temperatures above 4 degrees Celsius, or (2) Wash them thoroughly with water and detergent and rinse. Remove all oil from all clothes, tools, rags and any other materials contacted during use or as a result of an accidental spill. All wash water is to be disposed of properly.

Coverage

These figures represent typical averages for common decking and cladding timbers such as Western Red Cedar, Pine, Spotted Gum, Jarrah, lronbark, lpe, Tiger deck, Cumaru and other Exotics, Thermal wood etc.

New hardwoods dressed – 10-20m2/litre (400-800 sq feet/gallon)

Old restored timber dressed – 7-9m2/litre (300-400sq feet/gallon)

New timber rough sawn – 7-9m2/litre (300-400sq feet/gallon)

Old restored timber rough sawn – 4-7m2/litre (180-300sq feet/gallon)

Shingles and shakes – 2-5m2/litre (84-212sq feet/gallon)

CUTEK Wood Preservative will gradually fade over time rather than peel, split or crack, so the rejuvenation of timber coated with CUTEK Wood Preservative is a simple fast and cost-effective process.

CUTEK Wood Preservative should be reapplied when the wood is no longer beading water, or as frequently as necessary to retain the natural beauty and colour of the wood.

Recoat time varies widely according to many factors including the age and porosity of the wood, species, situation and exposure to the weather. Typically, horizontal exterior smooth surfaces such as pool decks and handrails may require coating every 6 months to two years, while vertical rough sawn cladding may require maintenance less frequently.
