Stable Coat

Protek Stable Coat is a water-based micro-porous acrylic coating incorporating an ultra-high performance water repellency additive that uses nanotechnology to deliver an extreme hydrophobic layer of protection. Protek Stable Coat offers excellent long-term protection for stables and all other types of timber buildings. This coating is designed for the water-proofing of pressure treated timber buildings.


Protek has a long tradition of supplying wood treatment to stable manufacturers. We increasingly found we were being asked to supply the same product to stable owners so they could, when the time came, re-treat their stable in the same animal safe and environmentally sound product. Protek is a family run business with enthusiastic horse owners that understand what kind of product is required for the busy stable yard. The product must be safe, quick and easy to use but also give a finish that is attractive, high performing and long lasting.

Stable Coat is easy to apply and suitable for use on old or new stables and easily overcoats old creosote coatings. It is low in odour and has a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content. It complies to EN71 parts 2 & 3 relating to child toy safety and flammability. The unique formulation has been designed to give a quick drying coat leaving a traditional finish.


1 litre will cover approximately 10m2 depending on the moisture content and porosity of the timber. For the first treatment it is recommended that two coats be
applied with only one coat needed for future maintenance and re-treatment.

Stable Coat is a highly-repellent coating. If too long is left between the first and second coat the 1st coating will repel the 2nd evident by beading. If this happens either sand back lightly or leave the first coat to weather for a couple of months before applying the second coat.
