Royal is a high-grade wood stain with a paint-like consistency that can be applied by brush, roller or sprayer. Due to the thicker consistency domestic sprayers struggle and easily block up but the product can be applied beautifully when using a low pressure spray gun.
Two coat application with a 3rd coat increasing the solidity and depth of the colour.
A 1 litre tin will cover approximately 8m2 depending on moisture content and porosity of the surface. It is recommended that 2 – 3 coats be applied.
Surfaces should be cleaned with warm water, detergent and a stiff brush. Make sure that all mould or algae is removed and rinse well. Ensure that timber is fully dry. For best results previous treatments should be removed or well weathered. No basecoat or primer required.
Mix well before and during use. Royal Exterior Superior Wood Finish can be applied by brush, professional low pressure spray gun or roller. Allow each coat to dry for a minimum of 2 hours before applying the next. Further coats should be applied between 2 – 4 hours later or if left longer, sand back lightly before applying the next coat. Maintain every 2 – 5 years or as required.

Splashes and drips can only be cleaned with warm water and detergent whilst still wet.

DO NOT apply in temperatures below 5°C or if wet weather is expected within 48 hours.

There may be an additional carriage charge for some heavy and bulky items to Northern Ireland, the Scottish Highlands and islands, Isle of Man and off-shore islands.

Products may be sent out from multiple locations and therefore may arrive separately, but you won't incur additional delivery charges as a result.

Although we try to send out complete orders there will be occasions when some items are out of stock.  In these instances we may send your order in several parts.  You will not incur additional delivery charges as a result.

If you'd like to have items sent to separate UK addresses, please complete a separate order for each address. A separate delivery charge will be made for each address if applicable.
