Instructions for Effective Use
Ensure timberwork is dry and free of loose soiling and organic growth.
Clean by mechanical scrubbing, sanding or pressure wash/ jet wash.
Wet surfaces must be allowed to dry.
The coating contains no fungicide or biocide and will not kill moss, algae, fungus or similar. Therefore if active protection is required use an exterior wood preserver such as Cuprinol
Apply by brush or roller- without thinning.
Multiple coats may be required on porous surfaces.
Hardwood and new pressure treated softwood will absorb less than old softwood therefore the coating rate will vary.
When used on garden furniture or timber decking use sparingly and brush out well. Re-assess the coating after 24 hours and reapply if necessary.
Remove excess coating by brushing out or wiping with an absorbent cloth.
“Contact” surfaces such as furniture, hand rails, walkways may require up to 2 weeks to dry during summer and should be assessed prior to use..
Good for Wood dries by transport into the wood followed by atmospheric oxidation of the coating left on the surface.
Factors affecting drying rate are:      Temperature
    Humidity: both of the wood and atmospheric
    Air movement
    Coating thickness- due to excessive application or low absorbance into substrate.
Retreatment times will vary with application and substrate but are typically 2-4 years.

Remove excess material from brushes and rollers by “squeezing” out.

Brushes and rollers may be washed with a proprietary brush cleaner followed by hot strong detergent solution.

GoodforWood is fully soluble in white spirits or similar solvents, and so more traditional methods of cleaning remain open to the user.

All paints based on oxidatively dried oils and resins when present as a contaminant on absorbent cloths or wipers, have the potential to cause spontaneous combustion when stored in close packed confines. ( the compost effect)


Application cloths and cleaning rags impregnated with the dried product may spontaneously combust.

Dispose of safely to avoid fire risk.

Lay out flat in single layers to dry or wash out well in soapy water before disposal.
