Timber Eco Shield
For over 30 years we have been making water-based timber coatings at our family run business in Somerset. Our eco credentials are a core value that drove the start of the business and are as strong today.
New Timber Eco Shield will prolong the like and good looks of your timber by using the latest nanotechnology that leaves a waterproof finish. It can be used on all outside (and inside) timbers. It gives a traditional matt wood stain finish in a range of natural colours.
It contains a mould inhibitor to protect the coating. It is perfect for use on all softwood and hardwood products and is especially recommended for use on pressure treated timbers, as well as, sheds, summerhouses, timber buildings, fencing, gates, garden furniture, animal and bird housing.
We advise for ultimate performance the timber has a wood preservative pre-treatment. For the first treatment, two coats are recommended and will give a traditional wood stain finish that is long lasting.
1 litre will cover approximately 12m² depending on moisture content and porosity of the timber. It is recommended that 2 coats are applied. Allow the first coat to dry before applying the second. It is advisable to apply the second coat in the same day due to it being very water repellent when fully bonded. The colour will be more intense with the second coat. No primer or basecoat is required.
