WHERE TO USE
Huemiller Superior Wood Stain & Sealant is recommended for use on exterior wood fences, arbors, gazebos, siding and other vertical, rough wood surfaces. It may be used on new wood, pressure-treated wood, weathered wood, and wood already coated with a solvent-based clear or semi-transparent stain. For decks, see our specific deck products.
Use on approximately 150 to 200 sq. ft. per gallon. Coverage also depends on type, age and moisture content of wood and application method.
Surface must be clean, dry and free of all dust, dirt, mildew, oil and other contaminants. Clean weathered, dirty or mildewed surfaces with a wood cleaner/mildew remover before applying this product. Stir thoroughly and often during use. Test a small hidden area prior to application to ensure acceptable appearance and penetration. When using more than one container of the same color, intermix to ensure color uniformity. Apply one thin coat with a high quality natural bristle brush, roller or paint pad, or with spray equipment. To help avoid lap marks, apply to only a few boards at a time, keeping a wet edge. Always back brush during application to ensure optimum penetration and uniformity. Do not thin the formula. Apply when air, product and surface temperatures are 50 F (10 C) or above. Avoid painting in direct sunlight or on hot surfaces.
Huemiller Superior Wood Stain & Sealant normally dries in 24 hours when applied in temperatures of 50 F (10 C) to 85 F (29 C). High humidity may prolong drying time. It is not recommended to apply this product if rain is expected within 24 hours.
Clean brushes and tools with mineral spirits.
