How to Apply Wolman Oil-Based RainCoat One Coat Clear Sealer
PERFORM A SPLASH TEST – Regardless of whether wood is newly installed or pre-existing, it is important to determine if there is a surface barrier present which would prevent proper penetration or adhesion of a new coating. To conduct a Splash Test, sprinkle several handfuls of water on a few distinct areas of the 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, and must be eliminated before coating can begin. Prepare the surface with Wolman® DeckBrite™ Deck & Fence Brightener or DeckStrip® products based on wood condition described below. After preparation, repeat the Splash Test to confirm water absorption before applying this product.
For best results, apply when outside temperatures are between 40-90°F (4-38°C) and when no precipitation is expected for 24 hours. Apply with a natural or synthetic bristle brush, short nap roller or stain pad, pump-style sprayer or other spray equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer’s directions for spray equipment. Always work from end to end on a few boards at a time and maintain a wet edge. When rolling or spraying, make sure to back-brush along the grain to remove any drips, runs, uneven coverage or surface puddles. APPLY ONLY ONE (1) COAT. DO NOT OVER-APPLY.
