Owatrol Seasonite protects new wood in its vulnerable first year, from the damaging effects of sun and moisture. An immediate application of Owatrol Seasonite seals out excess moisture and protects against sun damage, so keeping new wood looking new longer.
Owatrol Seasonite is for preventing warping and cracking that causes unsightly and damaging results, treating the wood with Owatrol Seasonite will keep the wood looking new for longer. Using Owatrol Seasonite to treat new timber, allows the new wood to weather naturally in its first year without damage. After 6 to 12 months of weathering, Owatrol Seasonite provides a sound surface for oils, paint and stains. After this period of weathering the wood can then easily maintained and protected by using a penetrating oil finish such as Owatrol Textrol or for a coloured finish we would recommend using Owatrol Solid Color Stain.
Owatrol Seasonite is best used on new exterior timber to protect and stabilise the new exterior wood during its first year of weathering. Owatrol Seasonite can be used to treat pressure treated wood, softwoods such as cedar, pine, Douglas fir etc., and hardwoods such as ash, beech, birch etc. Owatrol Seasonite can be used on both horizontal and vertical surfaces, and is perfect for application on new garden decks, cladding, shakes, fences, shingles, exterior wood furniture plus many more.

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of dirt, grease, grime mildew and other surface contaminants. Treat mildew with a solution of 1 part bleach to 3 parts water. Scrub solution on to surface, allow to stand for 10-15 minutes; rinse thoroughly. If necessary sand surface after cleaning (80 grit paper).
Wood should be clean and dry or damp but not wet. Apply one liberal, saturating coat to all wood surfaces. Soak into the end grain.
