Penofin Stain Exterior Application
- If the wood was previously finished with a brand other than Penofin Oil Wood Finish, follow these steps. If the prior finish was a 100% acrylic water-based product, use a conventional paint stripper.
- If the wood is gray use Pro-Tech Brightener to restore the wood’s original appearance.
- SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING. DO NOT add thinning or blending agents.
- Apply Penofin to a clean dry surface. Surface must be free of dirt and sawdust build-up. Do not apply when wood is hot to the touch. Minimum temperature is 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Brush on, use a stain pad, or spray on using a pump up sprayer equipped with a plastic tip.
- To allow for maximum penetration wait 30 minutes, then use a nap-free shop cloth and wipe the entire surface, removing excess product.
- Surface will be dry to the touch in three hours, and ready for use in 12 hours.
- When using the one-coat formula, the application is now complete.
- Do not apply wet-on-wet.
- If using the two-coat formula, wait a minimum of three hours and apply a light second coat and again wipe any excess from the entire application area after 30 minutes.
- Penofin is an oil-based product. Clean brushes and other application materials with mineral spirits or paint thinner.
- AVOID SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION of oily rags. Soak all used cloths in a covered metal bucket of water, ensuring the cloths are completely covered with water. Cover until they can be properly disposed at your local hazardous materials drop-off.
- Maintenance is easy when you use Penofin. Because Penofin is a low-solid product, there is no stripping or sanding necessary. Simply wash the surface with water and a mild detergent. Allow your wood surface to dry completely, approximately 48 hours before application.
- Follow the application methods listed above for a fresh and beautiful wood surface.
