Wood surface should be cleaned of dirt, dust, grease, wax, silicone, soap and oil, and completely free of mold, mildew or fungus contamination. Because of wide variations in the way different woods accept stain, we particularly recommend that users always test in small, inconspicuous areas for appearance and compatibility before application to the entire surface.
Before using, stir Safecoat DuroTone well, then apply as is stirring occasionally during use. Intermix (boxing) all containers of the same color to ensure uniformity before applying. Apply with the grain using a brush or pad applicator always keeping a wet edge. Note: these instructions are intended to be general only and not exhaustive. The applicator should determine what preparation and techniques are best suited to the specific surface.
Before applying water based finishing coats over Durotone, seal the surface by lightly and evenly spray applying with a hand held garden sprayer, the finishing water based coating at a ratio of 50/50 water to coating. Allow 4-6 hours dry time before applying the finishing topcoats.
