PREMIUM WOOD PROTECTION DECK

How to get a silver-gray, smooth and durable deck for up to 8 years:

PREPARATIONS:
Apply Premium Wood Protection Deck to a completely clean wood surface. Clean the surface with our PreWash and remove any oil, paint, algae and blackened regions. Use sandpaper to remove any remaining debris. Cover objects that are sensitive to splashes, as well as glass, aluminum, stones and tiles – the products are slightly alkaline and can leave stains. Use gloves and eye protection. New pressure-treated lumber should dry for at least 6 weeks before being treated with Premium Wood Protection Deck.

REMEMBER:
Avoid rain until all coats have dried. Avoid application in strong sunlight because the treatment will dry too quickly. Lowest temperature for use: + 43 °F. Shake and stir before and during treatment. Wipe away any spills immediately with a wet rag. For more information please see sioox.se. The durability of Sioo:x also depends on the wood species and exposure.

STEP 1 – PREMIUM WOOD PROTECTION DECK (FIRST SEASON ONLY):
Apply Premium Wood Protection Deck to dry surface using a broad brush, allow to dry for at least 2 hours. Apply another coat of Premium Wood Protection Deck, allow to dry for at least 4 hours. Generously apply the Wood Protection on the end grain, and also the Surface Protection to seal the wood.

STEP 2 – PREMIUM SURFACE PROTECTION DECK, FIRST SEASON:
Apply Premium Surface Protection Deck with a brush to seal it. The surface can be used once completely dry, after about 30–60 minutes.

STEP 2 – PREMIUM SURFACE PROTECTION DECK, SECOND SEASON:
Apply Premium Surface Protection Deck one more time after 12–18 months. Carefully clean the surface using Maintenance Wash and a soft brush. Allow the surface to dry. Apply Premium Surface Protection Deck as described in the instructions for the first season. This product is used on surfaces exposed to wear and may need to be reapplied a few more times during the life span of the system.

EQUIPMENT:
Bucket and broad brush. Brush can be cleaned with water.

PROCESS:
At first the deck may appear yellowish brown and somewhat patchy, but it brightens after contact with water and will begin to turn silver-gray after about 2–4 weeks. The process continues for up to 1 year.

LEFTOVER PRODUCT:
Store frost-free. Shelf life in well-filled sealed container is up to 6 years for Wood Protection, up to 2 years for Surface Protection. Sort rinsed packaging as hard plastic. In case of contact with eyes or skin, wash with water.

CLEANING:
Use our Maintenance Wash (or dilute solution of dishwashing liquid) as needed to remove dirt and superficial algae growth (which may occur in shaded damp areas of the deck). Do not use a pressure washer – it can ruin the surface layer of the deck.

DAMAGED AREAS:
Minor scrapes can be treated with Premium Surface Protection Deck. For larger damaged areas use Premium Wood Protection Deck.


PREMIUM WOOD PROTECTION PANEL

How to get silver-gray, smooth and durable paneling for up to 15 years:

Use gloves and eye protection.

REMEMBER:
We recommend using sawn wood with a coarse surface structure. The product is also available pigmented, on special order. Avoid rain until all coats have dried. Avoid application in strong sunlight because the treatment will dry too quickly. Lowest temperature for use:+ 43 °F. Shake and stir before and during treatment. Wipe away any spills immediately with a wet rag.

Don’t forget to treat the end grain and joints. Standing wooden surfaces are cleaner and more durable than landscape (horizontal) surfaces, since they stay drier. For more information please see sioox.se.
