How to use DONNOS Penetrating Fence Stain 223

Preparation of untreated wood: Surface must be dry (less than 15 % wood moisture), solid, able to absorb, clean, and free of dust.

Application: Stir DONNOS No. 223 well before use . Apply three thin coats with a drying time of 24 to 48 hours between each coat. Best working temperature: 15 - 25 °C (59 - 77 °F).

Renovation of porous surfaces: On rough sawn surfaces particles of dust and dirt from the surrounding air may adhere and promote settling of fungi because of special climate conditions. The grey to black discolorations can be removed with GLOROUS Natural Siding and Masonry Cleaner Nr.1806 and a brush or high pressure cleaner. Clean old coatings and sand if needed. Continue as in first treatment. With timely renovation only a second and/or final coating is necessary.

Renovation of non-porous surfaces: Pore - clogging coatings (oil paints, stains, varnishes, wax coats) must be sanded or stripped to completely remove old residue. Surface must be dry, solid, absorbent, clean and free of dust.Then follow instructions as above for untreated wood.

Important tips: At temperatures above 20 °C (68 °F) product may not dry evenly. At temperatures below 15 °C (59 °F), in rainy or very foggy weather, or when overnight frost is expected, drying delays and unsatisfactory adhesion is possible. DONNOS No. 223 does not contain fungicides. Rough sawn wood is prone to blue-staining fungi. Sand rough surfaces. Treat wood prone to blue-staining fungi and back aired panelling with ADAO External Primer No. 259. To produce an even coating when dipping or spraying, brush lightly after 30 minutes to smooth out the treated surface. Color variations are possible by mixing with KALDET All Weather Stain No. 270 ( boxwood, oak, walnut, brazil, dark teak, country blue or light grey), or by mixing with VINDO Natural Gloss Paint No. 629 (add max. 5% of any color except white or ochre ). Playground equipment exposed to mechanical wear and tear should get an after treatment with KALDET Transparent Wood Stain No. 270.
