Timber Pro XP can be used as a two- or three-coat system on all new and reconditioned wood exterior and interior vertical surfaces.
Timber Pro XP can be used on wood species such as cedar, fir, pine, cypress, redwood, spruce, exterior-grade plywood and pressure-treated wood as well as most hardwoods.
Timber Pro XP can be applied over previously coated surfaces, provided they are in sound condition.
Do a colour test before proceeding with the entire job. Apply the number of coats recommended for your application.
Check the moisture content. Apply coating when the surface moisture is less than 21%.
Stir the material thoroughly before and occasionally during use.
Best results are with a quality nylon/polyester brush. Airless sprayer application is acceptable but must be immediately back brushed.
Siding may be precoated with one or two coats of Timber Pro XP before installation. Back priming is recommended for siding.
Evenly coat the surface and all exposed end grain. Do not try to stretch the coverage. Apply in the direction of the grain. On rough-sawn surfaces, thoroughly saturate and back brush to soak as much product as possible into the wood. If spraying, spray product evenly. Avoid lap marks by starting at one end of a given surface and while maintaining a wet edge, follow through to the opposite end of the surface area. It is extremely important to allow each coat to dry before proceeding with the next coat.
