LANOTEC Timber Seal impregnates timber with natural lanolin which preserves the timber from drying out and gives it a waxy sheen which repels water.
Suitable: for seasoned, dressed timber such as structural beams, interior joinery and furniture. It is also great on decks and pool surrounds because it has good slip resistance and protects fastenings from corrosion. It does not however have any tints to protect against the greying effect of the sun so exterior timber will grey naturally. For rough sawn timber in boardwalks, bridges and jetties use Timber Seal Plus
Appearance: is a clear liquid that penetrates into the timber and leaves a slightly darkened and waxy appearance to the timber. It can be polished when dry to bring a sheen to the surface. If used exterior in the sun the timber will grey naturally as Timber Seal does not have any tints to protect against the greying effect of the sun. This grey can be sanded back to the timber colour if desired when re-coating.
Colours: Clear only, but oil based tints can be added to colour it.
Odour: is mild, but caution should be exercised when applying it as the carrier is a volatile solvent which, although classified as non-toxic, could be irritating to sensitive individuals.
VOC: is not available
Durability: is good. It preserves the timber by repelling moisture and stopping it from drying out and rotting. Re-apply annually on exterior timber to maintain this protection.
Application: is with a brush, lambswool applicator, or garden sprayer. Spreading the product sparingly and evenly. Re-application is required in full exterior exposure usually every 12 months as it will slowly dry out with sun and rain. See full Application instructions
Drying: is a minimum of 6 hours between coats however this can vary a lot depending on the condition of the timber and the weather so it is best to 'listen' to the timber and apply a second coat if and when it will be absorbed.
Coverage: is between 8 - 15 sq.m/L depending on how dry the timber is.
Coats: is usually two thin coats but may be more or less depending on the dryness of the timber. Allow the timber to show you how much it will absorb. If the final coat remains a bit tacky it can be buffed to remove any residue and seal the surface. If too much has been applied it could result in a white waxy coating on the surface. This can be removed with Citra-Force Cleaner.
