Cuprinol 5 Year Ducksback colours and weatherproofs sheds and fences for up to 5 years. It has an advanced wax enriched and non-drip formulation which minimises mess during application. Ducksback is quick drying (showerproof in just one hour!), low odour and safe to use around plants and pets.
Product Use: Cuprinol 5 year Ducksback gives great protection and rich colour for rough sawn wood such as fences and sheds. The wax enriched, non-drip formula is showerproof in just one hour and is ideal for application onto rough sawn wood.
Preparation: Bare or untreated wood should be pre-treated with an appropriate wood preserver such as Barrettine Premier Universal Preservative Treatment. The surface should be clean, dry and free from algae, lichen and moss. Algae and moss can be removed using Everbuild Mossaway (now Patio Magic), and lichen can be removed with Everbuild Fungicidal Wash.
Application: Use a good quality Brush such as a Mako Exterior Woodcare Brush or a Roller such as the Mako Microfibre (not suitable for spray application). A small test patch should be carried out to check colour and adhesion. Do not apply if rain is imminent within 1 hour. Stir thoroughly before and during use. Brush on evenly along the grain. Apply 2-3 coats avoiding overlaps. Under normal weather conditions, allow 2-4 hours between coats. Recoat within 2-3 days as the product may be repelled by the wax enriched coating after this time. More coats may be required if a strong colour change is involved.
Drying time: 2-4 hours (showerproof in just 1 hour). Drying times can vary depending on the nature of the surface and the weather conditions.
Cleaning and Maintenance: Clean Brushes and Rollers with water. Store in dry conditions and protect from frost.
