ESP Panels extends the life of panel products by creating a watertight seal around the edge of the boards, stopping moisture penetration to protect against delamination. Ideal for external use and high humidity areas. ESP is proven to make plywood last longer. The Plywood Sealant is applied to the bare edges (including freshly cut edges) of the plywood boards. A thick layer is painted down the edge with a 5mm overlap onto the flat surface. Ensure that any holes or air pockets are completed covered. This can be done by working the sealant along the edge, back and forth with a paint brush.

|Panel Thickness||1 litre will seal||Total cut edge|
|18 mm||21 sheets||183 metres|
|12 mm||32 sheets||234 metres|
|9 mm||37 sheets||270 metres|
Ensure that all areas to be sealed are clean, free of dust, mud, and ‘muck’. If necessary, clean the surface thoroughly with clean water and allow to dry.
For optimum results ensure that the plywood is clean and dry before application.

• For best results use a woodwork stain and varnish brush for an even finish.
• Can be applied by roller: recommended a minimum of a medium pile roller sleeve.
Touch dry within 2 hours depending on drying conditions and humidity.
