Usage Summary
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-Surface Primer & Sealer. See label for additional instructions.
  • Intermix multiple containers to ensure color uniformity. Stir product occasionally throughout application.
  • Use a 3/8” nap roller, nylon/polyester brush, pad applicator or airless sprayer. Airless spray is recommended for experienced applicators only; use a .015 - .019" tip.
  • If thinning is required, thin with water at a rate of no more than 1/2 pint per gallon.
  • Maintain a wet edge when applying.
  • Always back-brush and apply product end to end or to board lengths to prevent lap marks.
  • Over application of stain will lead to surface failure including peeling and cracking. Avoid applying stain too heavily.
  • For optimum performance, coat all six sides of wood.
Dry Time
  • 1-2 hours before recoat. Wait 24-48 hours before light foot traffic. 72 hours for full cure.
Disposal
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product, contact your household refuse collection service.
