How to Apply Wolman Finish and Preservative
Conduct a splash test on bare wood to confirm water absorption before applying this product. Note: Chlorine bleach cleaners alone are not recommended. These products degrade the wood structure, interfering with penetration and adhesion of protective coatings. To conduct a Splash Test, sprinkle several handfuls of water on a few distinct areas of the bare wood surface. If the water absorbs rapidly, the surface is ready to be coated. If the water beads, puddles or is not absorbed, an internal or external barrier exists, which must be eliminated before application of the preservative finish. Prepare the surface with Wolman DeckBrite (Powder Concentrate), Deck & Fence Brightener (Liquid Concentrate) or DeckStrip products and repeat the splash test to confirm water absorption before applying this product.
Before You Start : Prior to project start date, perform a trial brush-out in several inconspicuous areas to ensure the desired color is achieved. Color appearance will vary depending on wood species, age and surface porosity. Replace rotted, extremely weathered or warped boards. This product will not repair existing wood damage such as cracking, checking, splintering or splitting. Make sure entire wood surface is dry and free of dust, dirt and debris. Cover all surrounding areas not intended to be coated. Intermix or box multiple gallons of the same product color in a separate container to ensure a uniform color. Do not tint, dilute or mix this product with any other product. Mix product thoroughly before use and stir occasionally during application.
Apply when outside temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-38°C) and when no precipitation is expected for 24 hours. Do not apply to wood that is hot to touch or in direct sunlight to prevent premature evaporation of solvent.
Apply with a natural or synthetic bristle brush, paint pad, pump sprayer, or airless sprayer. When spraying, work on a 30-40 square foot area at a time, making sure to backbrush along the grain any drips, runs, uneven coverage or surface puddles. Do not over-saturate surface with product or allow to puddle to prevent shiners, tackiness, excessive drying time or uneven appearance when dry.
