MAXICARE® WATER-BASED APPLICATION PROGRAME

PREPARING THE SURFACE:

Surfaces must be dry, clean and free from debris.

Remove fungus or mould with a solution of fungus cleaner and water.

Rinse with water and allow to dry.

Sand the surface, first with a medium grit sandpaper

(80 – 100-grit) followed by a fine sandpaper (220-grit).

This will create a good bond between the wood and the coating to ensure agood finish.

RAW SURFACE APPLICATION:

Wipe the wood with a damp cloth. Stir Maxicare® thoroughly to ensure pigment and paint are completely mixed. Using a brush with fine hair, apply one thin coat with smooth even strokes in the direction of the grain.

Allow to dry for at least 4 hours. Re-sand the surface lightly with 220-grit paperand apply a second thin coat.

If a third coat is needed, repeat steps above.

NEGLECTED SEALED SURFACES:

Step 1: Remove all flaking and peeling paint on surface.

Step 2: Sand and wipe with damp cloth to remove dust. Proceed as described above in “Raw surface application.”

COVERAGE:

Spreading rate should be 8 – 10 m2/l and will vary depending on how porous the wood is.

STORAGE:

Store out of direct sunlight, between 5 – 38°C. Maxicare® water base must not be allowed to freeze.

Maximum shelf life of 12 months.

FOR BEST RESULTS:

Seal all six sides properly.
