Sikkens ProLuxe Rubbol Solid Wood Finish Preparation Procedures:
For New, Weathered, Uncoated, and Previously-coated Wood:
• Spray the surface with water, wetting the wood.
• Clean the surface with a solution of four ounces of 100% powdered Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) or phosphate-free substitute, plus one quart of liquid bleach in three quarts of water. Apply this solution generously to the wood with a garden pump sprayer or heavy nap roller cover.
• Let the solution sit for 15-20 minutes. During this period, scrub the surface with a hard bristle brush to help remove mill glaze or weathering. Do not allow solution to dry on the wood surface.
• Power-wash wood surface with water using 500-800 psi with the nozzle 8-12 inches away to remove cleaning solution.
• Allow the surface to dry for 48-72 hours, or to have a moisture content of 18% or less before application.
• For optimal performance and appearance on wood deck, sand with 60-80 grit sand paper. Always sand in the direction of the wood grain. For vertical surfaces, use 80-120 grit sandpaper.
• Finish should be applied within one week of preparation for horizontal surfaces (decks) and four weeks for vertical surfaces (siding), provided that the surface remains free of dirt, grease, grime, and mildew.
• NOTE: Tannin-containing woods such as Redwood, Red Cedar, Mahogany, and Douglas fir contain tannic acid which tends to migrate to the surface and discolor the stain, and is especially noticeable when using white or light colors. The discoloration is not harmful. To avoid discoloration, apply an oil-based stain-blocking primer. Pressure-treated wood must be properly seasoned, dry, and free of salts and other water-soluble materials before applying stain.

For Composite Decking Surfaces:
• Follow Preparation Procedures 1-5 above.
• Do NOT sand composites. Always perform an adhesion test before application.
• Additionally, staining may void some composite decking manufacturers’ warranties.

New pressure-treated lumber requires a six-week drying period prior to application.
Water repellent treated lumber requires one year of weathering prior to application.

• It is always recommended to perform a two-coat test sample to confirm desired color results.
• New rough-sawn wood (less than four weeks old) should be dry-brushed using a brush with stiff bristles to remove loose dirt and fibers.
• Extractive-prone wood species such as cedar or redwood may require a non-bleed oil-based primer.
• Weathered grey wood or wood affected with blue fungi or rust from nails may be treated after the surface preparation by applying a solution of four ounces of Oxalic Acid Crystals in one gallon of warm water. This solution should be allowed to sit on the affected areas for 15-20 minutes before the final power wash with clean water. Allow to dry three days before coating.
• Fill all joints, cracks and nail holes with a good quality polyurethane or acrylic caulk/filler prior to applying the coating.
• Coatings in poor condition, i.e., peeling and flaking, need to be completely removed before applying a new finish.

 Sikkens ProLuxe Rubbol Solid Wood Finish Application Procedures
• Follow the Preparation Procedures
• Apply two coats of the product. Allow 4-6 hours of drying time between coats. For previously-coated surfaces, one coat may be used.
• Clean tools with warm water and soap.
• Apply when the surface and air temperature is between 50°F (10°C) - 90°F (32°C).
• Stir well before using.
• Saturate all end grains.
• Maintain a wet edge.
• Apply in the direction of the wood grain.
• Back prime if possible.
• Intermix batches to ensure color consistency.
• Use roller, spray, or nylon polyester brush.
• Do not apply in direct sunlight.
• Do not apply when the surface is hot to the touch.
• Do not apply when dew, rain, or frost is present or expected within five hours.
• Do not apply when the moisture content of the wood is greater than 18%.
