Preparation

Proper surface preparation is required.

  • For failing coatings or to remove loose wood fibers, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper followed by BEHR PREMIUM No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner to neutralize the wood.
  • When No. 64 is not needed, a product such as No. 63 MUST be used to remove mill glaze and clean the wood surface.
  • After using either No. 64 or No. 63, rinse thoroughly with a garden hose or pressure washer.
  • When rinsing with a pressure washer, use the broadest spray pattern while keeping the nozzle at least 24" away from the surface. Allow the area to dry at least 24 hours before coating.
  • Lightly sand to remove remaining wood fibers/fuzz.

Application

For best results, a pad applicator is recommended over large deck areas.

  • Must apply between 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚C). Avoid applying in direct sunlight or to hot surfaces.
  • Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The surface must be completely dry before application.  
  • Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity.
  •  Stir product occasionally throughout application.
  • Test product for penetration and color on a small hidden area before proceeding.
  • Use a natural bristle brush for areas requiring more accuracy.
  • Use of rollers should be limited to rough surfaces only. Use 3/8" nap or longer when appropriate.
  • A high-quality sprayer with a variable tip or an airless sprayer with a .013"-.017" tip (60 mesh filter) may be used.
  • If thinning is necessary for spray application, then use a VOC compliant paint thinner at a rate of up to 8 oz. per gallon.
  • Lightly saturate the surface and back-brush any excess finish. Be sure to eliminate puddling and evenly distribute the finish.
  • Maintain a wet edge when applying.  
  • Apply product end-to-end or to board lengths to prevent lap marks.
  • Avoid applying finish too heavily.
  • One coat application.
  • For optimum performance, coat all accessible sides.

Maintenance

  • When color has faded and water is readily absorbed by the substrate, prep/clean with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM No. 63, allow to dry, and apply a new/fresh coat of wood finish.
  • Product can be applied annually if needed.

Dry Time

  • Dry to touch after 2-4 hours depending on wood porosity.
  • 24-48 hours before foot traffic. 72 hours for full cure.

Disposal

  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your household refuse collection service.
