Dulux Trade Ultimate Woodstain is a solvent-based exterior woodstain with 10 Year Weathershield Protection.

For the best results, ensure that wood to be stained with Dulux Ultimate Woodstain is sound, clean and dry.

Previously painted timbers

  • Remove all traces of paint, varnish and other surface coatings by taking the timber back to bare wood by sanding or using a suitable paint stripper
  • Special precautions should be taken during surface preparation of pre-1970s painted surfaces as they may contain harmful lead

Old timbers

  • Remove and treat any mould, algae, lichen or moss with a suitable mould and mildew cleaner
  • Remove defective glazing material, clean the rebates and any loose or open joints
  • Replace any rotten wood and troublesome knots with preservative treated timber
  • Thoroughly rub down all surfaces in the direction of the grain to remove any grey, weathered wood
  • Wipe down wood with a lint-free cloth to ensure that all traces of sanding dust have been removed from surfaces to be stained

Bare or New timbers

  • Prime all bare wood with 2 coats of Dulux Trade Aquatech Preservative Basecoat Plus (BP) including any new or bare replacement beading (Excess basecoat should be wiped off surrounding paintwork)
  • Fill any surface defects, open joints, etc. and replace any missing glazing material
  • Do not use linseed oil putty for glazing (or making good), use external beads set in an appropriate non-setting mastic or a special glazing compound
  • New joinery is often factory primed using a stain basecoat (also called a dual-purpose primer) - these materials quickly erode when left exposed and may need to be re-primed

Always do a test area before starting any project to test for adhesion and consistency of the final finish. Follow the manufacturers instructions on the tin at all times.

Stir contents of tin thoroughly before and during use to ensure a consistent finish. Do not apply if surface or air temperature is 5℃ or below. This product should not be sprayed.

  1. Apply 2-3 coats of Dulux Woodstain with a good quality paint brush
  2. Allow 16 hours to dry

Please Note: This product is not suitable for use on exterior timber where there is severe checking and splitting of the wood caused by long-term exposure, or on any resinous wood or woodwork with a history of blistering.

For the best colour consistency, purchase sufficient Dulux Trade Wood Stain for each project. If large areas are to be stained, pour the multiple tins of Dulux Ultimate Woodstain into a large container and mix thoroughly.

To maintain the finish, simply apply a fresh coat of Dulux Trade Ultimate Woodstain as required, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.

This is a top quality woodstain and rosewood a great colour by Mr Shah

This stain is very thick just like non drip gloss and it is easy to apply. The finish is fantastic with a nice sheen and a deep rich dark colour.

Used sparingly (to prevent runs) it imparts a rich and deep mahogany stain whilst enhancing the natural wood grain by Roger Bellamy

As above but after two weeks it's a bit early to assess the 10-year advertised life!
