Oily primer offering preventive protection against fungi and insects, for interior and exterior use, either clear or coloured. Suitable for exterior panelling, garden furniture, windows, sandpits, box framing (before installation).
Suitable for hardwood and softwoods, whether rough-sawn or dressed. For outdoor use, the primed timber must be sealed when dry with a coloured Bio Wood Varnish.
Prepare the surface in accordance with AS 2311 Painting of Buildings. Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet timber.
Wood should be well sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner. Round off sharp edges. It is also good practice to prime back surfaces.
Hardwoods and timbers rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using BIO Thinner, because these substances may mix with the varnish and prolong its drying time. Let dry for 24 hours. Imperfect coats may require complete stripping before applying BIO Products.
Stir thoroughly before use with a broad flat stirrer before use. May be brushed, dipped or sprayed. Brush thinly and evenly with a wide brush, working wood primer well into the grain.
For very absorbent surfaces apply a second coat within the space of 12 to 24 hours, making sure that the wood is saturated. Low temperature and humid conditions prolong the drying time.
Do not paint below 10C and/or above 80% humidity, in cold damp conditions, when condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely to occur, or hot days, in direct sunlight and on hot surfaces. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying.
