Dulux Aquatech provides a sound base for Dulux Trade Yacht Varnish and products from the Dulux Trade Ultimate and Quick Dry Exterior ranges.

Please Note: Dulux Aquatech Preservative is not suitable as a basecoat for products in the Dulux Weathershield range.

  • To get the best results, ensure surfaces to be primed are clean, dry and free from surface dirt and debris.
  • Remove all loose, flaking, peeling, cracking coatings and previous paintwork, if necessary stripping back to bare wood.
  • Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1970s painted surfaces as they may contain harmful lead.
  • Remove and treat any mould, algae, lichen or moss with a suitable Fungicidal Wash. Remove defective glazing material, clean the rebates and any loose or open joints.
  • Replace any rotten wood and troublesome knots with new preservative treated timber.
  • Thoroughly rub down all surfaces in the direction of the grain to remove any grey, weathered wood and surface sheen from remaining coatings taking care to remove all traces of sanding dust.
  • Fill any surface defects and open joints and replace any missing glazing material. Do not use linseed oil putty for glazing (or making good) with natural wood finishes, use external beads set in an appropriate non-setting mastic or a special glazing compound.

Always do a test area before starting any project to test adhesion and final finish. Read the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

Dulux Weathershield Aquatech is for brush application only and must not be sprayed.

Mix thoroughly by shaking container before use.

  1. Pour out sufficient amount of Dulux Trade Aquatech Preservative Basecoat Plus for the job into a suitable metal container. Do not use direct from the can or return any unused product back to the container.
  2. Prime all bare wood with 2 coats of Dulux Aquatech Preservative Basecoat (BP), including any new or bare replacement beading. Excess basecoat should be wiped off surrounding paintwork before it dries.

Please Note: The use of silicone sealants can cause blemishes in the finish of this product. Do not use on resinous wood or woodwork with a history of blistering. The maximum benefits of this system will only be realised when used as directed above on good quality timber that conforms to BS EN 942: 1996 (or as amended), in conjunction with good component design.

This product does not require much in the way of maintenance, but as a guide if the original finish starts to wear over time, a new coat can be applied following the Preparation and Application instructions.

This product is one I have always used by Mr. D. R. Moore

I have only ever used this product for many years and have found it excellent. At times I have found it occasionally hard to obtain.
