Solignum Architectural is a solvent-borne opaque woodstain. It produces a microporous, flexible paint coating with excellent opacity and a low-sheen finish. Use Architectural for painting windows, doors, cladding, facias, fences, conservatories, sheds, gates etc. Easily applied by brush or spray. It is ideal for solvent preservative treated timber.
Solignum Architectural Wood Stain penetrates the surface of the timber giving good adhesion so that no primer is required, and the surface will not crack or peel. It resists mould growth and protects timber from the harmful effects of UV light.
Architectural is a genuine low maintenance product requiring very little maintenance to preserve its colour and strength. It is BBA certified for in excess of 5 years - before redecoration should become necessary. Ebony is ideal for use on exterior black barn timbers.
Prepared bare timber*: Apply 2 coats on vertical surfaces, apply 3 coats on horizontal surfaces at correct coverage rates.
Sound previously coated & prepared timber: Apply 2 coats on vertical surfaces, apply 2-3 coats on horizontal surfaces at correct coverage rates.
Apply by brush, roller or conventional spray (which may require thining by up to 10% with clean white spirit). Coverage of the paint coating will vary depending on the porosity and surface profile. Sawn timber 5-14 square meters per litre per coat. Planed timber 14-18 square meters per litre per coat. We always recommend applying a clear universal wood preservative to bare exterior timbers before overcoating, paying particular attention to cut end grain, this provides better protection against wood rotting fungi in the UK's wet climate. Clean brushes and equipment with Paint Brush Cleaner - a water-soluble solvent cleaner.
