Preparation

The following steps and products are recommended for best results.

  • Use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper to remove loose wood fibers, latex, oil-based and 100% acrylic coatings on new or weathered wood.
  • BEHR PREMIUM® NO. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner MUST be used following NO. 64 to clean, brighten & neutralize wood.
  • When NO. 64 is not needed, use a product such as NO. 63 to clean and brighten the wood surface and to remove light to medium exterior stains caused by mold, mildew, algae & fungus.
  • Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry before coating. On new wood, use a product such as NO. 63 to remove mill glaze and open the pores of the wood. Lightly sand to remove remaining wood fibers/fuzz.

Application

  • Must apply between 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚C). Do not use if rain is expected within 24 hours. The wood surface must be completely dry before application.
  • No primer needed on most woods. However, Redwood, Cedar, Cypress and other “bleeding” woods contain water soluble extractives which may cause discoloration of white and pastel colors; therefore prime the above type woods with one coat of a product such as BEHR PREMIUM PLUS® NO. 436 Exterior Multi-Purpose Primer & Sealer.
  • See label for additional instructions. Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity
  • Apply with a nylon/polyester brush. On rough-sawn or textured wood apply with a 3/4” (19 mm) long nap roller or high quality airless sprayer.
  • For airless spraying use a .015 - .019" tip. Pump Sprayer not recommended. Always back-brush or back-roll during all application methods.
  • Keep a wet edge to reduce lapping and help control color uniformity.
  • Over application of stain will lead to surface failure including peeling and cracking. Avoid applying stain too heavily.
  • Two coats may be necessary for complete hiding. Apply a thinner second coat after the first coat has thoroughly dried.

Disposal

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