Owatrol Tropitech All in One is a premium quality 100 % semi-transparent acrylic finish, which effectively seals wood, resisting moisture penetration, rot and decay. It contains an effective fungicide that resists mildew and a powerful UV screener that filters out the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, thereby retarding the aging (silvering) process of wood.
Owatrol Tropitech bonds "in" and "on" the wood to provide a tough, durable, lustrous finish that both protects and enhances the appearance, beauty and character of the wood. The Tropitech system enables preparation and finish to be completed the same day. Swimming Pool and Hot Tub surrounds, Decks, Docks, Cladding and Shingles are among the best wooden structures in which to use Tropitech All in One on.
New wood surfaces
New wood surfaces have a hard shiny surface called mill glaze that prevents maximum penetration and bonding of any finish and this should be removed before starting application.

solution except for Ipe; for Ipe add 1 part Owatrol Prepdeck to 1 part bleach/water solution. Apply Owatrol Prepdeck / bleach / water solution to the surface and leave to work for 20 minutes - If surface starts to dry, rewet with the Owatrol Prepdeck / bleach / water solution. Scrub surface with stiff nylon brush, deck brush or use a powerwasher (500-1000 psi). Rinse wood thoroughly with copious amounts of fresh clean water.
Weathered wood surfaces (untreated)
Wood that has weathered longer than 6 months requires thorough cleaning. Make up a bleach/water solution in the ratio of 1 part bleach to 3 parts water. Dilute Owatrol Prepdeck from a minimum of 1 part Owatrol Prepdeck to 5 parts bleach / water solution, up to a maximum of 1 part Owatrol Prepdeck to 20 parts bleach / water solution; depending on condition of surface to be cleaned.
