As with all SX70 products Basecoat is microporous and as such allows the wood to breathe. SX70 Basecoats can be applied by brushing, dipping or spraying to give a good degree of water repellency and anti fungal growth. SX70 Basecoats, once applied, should be stained or painted as normal with a conventional paint/stain system. This must be done within 3 months of SX70 Basecoat application.
New timber should be lightly sanded in the direction of the grain and then dusted off. Oily or resinous timber must first be washed down with white spirit and allowed to dry. Shake well or stir by hand using a wooden stick prior to use. Apply using brush, dip tank or spray.
Ensure spray equipment can handle solvent-based coatings. Allow to dry. Only one coat is necessary to protect wood prior to finishing. When used in a dip tank it is imperative that timber is dry and free from sawdust. Failure to comply will result in sludge formation
