Always carry out a preliminary test prior to commencing the job. Wear chemical resistant gloves, safety goggles and protective clothing. Hardwoods inc’ exotic hardwoods and woods rich in tannins i.e. Cedar, Oak, Teak, Ipe... may darken with Owatrol Aquanett.
Where Owatrol Aquanett has darkened the wood DO NOT allow it to dry, prior to using Owatrol Net-Trol. Treat stripped wooden surfaces with Owatrol Net-Trol to restore the woods original colour. Cover and protect everything you do not wish to strip, including plants and shrubs and any aluminium surfaces. When stripping vertical surfaces, work from bottom to top to avoid streaking. Apply between 5°C and 35°C. Do not apply in direct sunlight or on a hot surface.
Do not allow Owatrol Aquanett to dry on the surface. If drying occurs dampen with a mist application of water.
Remove any loose and flaking finish. Brush off any physical surface contamination i.e. moss, general dirt etc.
Removal of Oils and Millglaze. Apply a thick coat of Owatrol Aquanett over the whole surface to be stripped. For large areas work in zones. Allow product to work (max 5 minutes). Scrub surface with stiff nylon scrubbing brush while flushing with water, alternatively use a pressure washer (max. 60 bars / 870 psi). Thoroughly rinse the surface after stripping with fresh clean water. After stripping and rinsing, surfaces must immediately be treated with Owatrol Net-Trol while still wet to neutralise the surface.
