A special blend of lanolin and non-toxic, non-regulated, non-ozone depleting paraffinic carrier solvent(s).
Previously untreated timber must be treated against mold and/or fungus spores (use any broad spectrum agent) before applying Lanolin.
It is important that the timber is thoroughly clean and dry before applying Lanolin. Do not apply to ‘Green’ Timber. Allow timber to weather further before applying Lanolin. If the timber has turned grey due to weathering, sand the surface lightly before applying Lanolin. High levels of tannin and oily resins or high moisture content can lead to a poor finish of the coated surface.
For decking surfaces and other dressed timber, best results are achieved using a lamb’s wool applicator, although Lanolin can also be brushed or rolled.
Apply all coats evenly and sparingly, less is better when using Lanolin. Dry patches will need extra attention to achieve an even finish.The final coat for exposed or dressed timber surface requires polishing/buffing to remove residue, maximize the protective seal and highlight the timber’s natural grain.
As this is a penetrating liquid and not a surface finish, any excess will remain tacky and must be removed. This is easily accomplished with a terry toweling cloth and requires only light rubbing.
Lanolin is compatible with most solvent and oil based paints. We advise an adhesion test with an offcut or inconspicuous area first. Lanolin is NOT compatible with water based acrylic coatings.
For undressed, underside of external and structural timbers, apply preferably by spray and prior to construction.
