Keep tropical hardwoods looking like new with Rust-Oleum® Wolman™ E-H-T® Exotic Hardwood Treatment. This specialized formula maintains the “wet” look of exotic woods, like mahogany, ipe and teak, and restores a fresh appearance to weathered wood.
Features of the Product
- Translucent, natural brown tone compliments original hardwood color and maintains a brand-new look.
- Concentrated UV blocker/absorber combination prolongs coating color, resists premature fading, and reduces maintenance.
- Mildew-resistant coating film keeps surface free of mildew stain.
How to Apply Wolman E-H-T Exotic Hardwood Treatment
Due to the very dense nature of Mahogany, Ipé and other exotic hardwood species, it is very important to clean the surface and open the pores of the wood prior to sealing or staining for proper coating penetration, adhesion and long term performance. For example, water puddles that remain on the surface for 20 minutes indicates the wood surface is not porous enough to allow a coating to penetrate or adhere properly.
For best results, apply when outside temperatures are between 50-90°F (10-38°C) and when no precipitation is expected for 24 hours. Apply with a synthetic short nap stain pad, synthetic bristle brush, OR airless spray equipment. (A pump sprayer is not recommended for coating exotic hardwoods). Follow equipment manufacturer’s directions for spray equipment. Always work from end to end on one board at a time. When using a pad or brush, make long, even strokes, avoid back-andforth movements and maintain a wet edge. Work from a dry surface into a wet coating to help avoid lap marks. Cut in with a brush where a pad will not reach. When spraying, use a 4-5 inch fan with, 0.013-0.015 inch tip, 250-500 psi. Brush out along the grain any drips, runs, uneven coverage or surface puddles before they dry, especially on vertical surfaces. APPLY ONLY ONE (1) COAT. DO NOT OVER-APPLY. Clean up over-spray, drips or splatters with water as soon as possible.
