General Directions:
Surfaces must be thoroughly clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, grime, mildew and previous coatings. Treat mildew with a 50/50 bleach/water solution. Scrub solution on to surface and allow to stand for 10-15 minutes; rinse thoroughly.

After cleaning, allow wood to dry 2-3 good drying days or until it has reached a moisture content of 18 % or less before applying finish. Owatrol Aquatrol may only be applied to bare wood surfaces or a weathered wood surface that was previously finished with Owatrol Aquatrol. ALL other finishes must be completely and thoroughly removed. If necessary sand surface after cleaning and/or stripping (80 grit paper).

New wood surfaces:
Owatrol Aquatrol may only be applied to weathered wood. All new wood should be treated with Owatrol Seasonite and allowed to weather 6-12 months before applying Owatrol Aquatrol.

Weathered wood surfaces (untreated):
Wood that has weathered longer than 6 months or turned grey should be cleaned with Owatrol Net-Trol to remove all loose wood fibres, dirt and other surface contaminants before applying Owatrol Aquatrol.

Previously oiled surfaces:
All other oils or sealers must be completely and thoroughly removed with Owatrol Prepdeck and the stripped surface neutralised with Owatrol Net-Trol before applying Owatrol Aquatrol.

Previously coated surfaces (paint, stain, varnish…):
All previous coatings must be completely and thoroughly removed with Owatrol Dilunett, Owatrol Prepdeck or Owatrol CDKP 90 and the stripped surface neutralised with Owatrol Net-Trol before applying Owatrol Aquatrol.

Solvent (oil or alkyd based finishes): Strip with Owatrol Dilunett neutralise with Owatrol Net-Trol.
