WOCA Exterior Paint is for the basic treatment and maintenance of outdoor furniture, fences, claddings, etc. of wood. Exterior Paint gives a hard-wearing and resistant surface and it also protects against green growth and discoloration. The paint is for both new and previous treated furniture. Do not use on decking.
Both new wood and previously treated surfaces must be cleaned thoroughly with WOCA Exterior Cleaner. Loose pieces of old paint have to be removed. Heavily weathered or damaged woodwork must be sanded or cleaned with WOCA Deep Cleaner A & B (see instruction for this).
Hereafter, the wood must dry till it reaches max 15% humidity. Raised fibres are removed with sandpaper grit 120 if necessary. If you want a smooth surface, a de-nibbing can be done between coats. Do not use any silicone-based products.
Treatment must be carried out during dry weather. Avoid direct sunlight and strong heat.
Stir the paint thoroughly before use. By softwood, strongly absorbing and weather-beaten surfaces, we recommend to prime the wood with WOCA Outdoor Primer. Alternatively dilute Exterior Paint with max 20% water. This will optimize absorbing and adherence properties of the wood.
Apply the paint with a brush or a lacquer roller in an even covering layer.
The surface is re-paintable after 4 hours at 68˚F. During this period, the wood must not be exposed to water.
Second application must be done with undiluted paint in order to obtain maximum coverage. The material is touch dry after approximately 6 hours and completely dry after 24 hours.
Treated surfaces must be checked at least once a year and any damages must be repaired. These must be carried out as basic treatment.
As the paint has great covering power, it is possible to do localised repairs in small “patches”. Prepare a slightly larger area than the damaged area and wipe the last paint in the brush over the edge so the shade is invisible and it harmonises with surrounding area.
Dirty surfaces have to be cleaned lightly with a soft brush. Have to be washed with water, possibly with WOCA Exterior Cleaner added. Watch out for cracks in the paint, should this happen, then repair as described in point A.
