Ensure all timber surfaces to be treated are fully clean, sound and dry.
Sadolin Extra Durable Clearcoat is perfect for a wide range of exterior wood projects including windows, doors and conservatories.
Please Note: This product is not suitable for high traffic areas such as flooring and decking.
Always do a small test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Do not apply Sadolin Clearcoat if there is a risk of rain, or when air / substrate temperatures are below 8℃ or above 25℃ or if the relative humidity is above 80% during application or drying periods. Protect from frost and rain until dry. Failure to meet these requirements may adversely affect the drying, visual quality and durability of the finish.
The amount you need may vary depending on surface condition, moisture content, method of application and climatic conditions during application.
For regular cleaning, wooden surfaces can be wiped down with a damp lint-free cloth and warm, soapy water.
The need for maintenance is indicated by a lightening in colour, reduction in sheen as the coating erodes, and a loss of water repellent qualities.
When the layer of finish is getting thin, simply wash down with warm, soapy water (mild detergent) and re-coat with 1 or 2 coats of Sadolin Extra Durable Clearcoat.
When removing organic growths, or greying in the wood, treat with a suitable fungicidal solution and lightly sand. Patch prime the areas where sanded with Sadolin Quick Drying Wood Preserver. After, simply add 1 or more coats of Sadolin Classic Wood Protection or Sadolin Extra Durable Woodstain in the appropriate shade to match existing colour. Then over coat with Sadolin Extra Durable Clearcoat.
If the finish is badly flaking or peeling, to the point where the bare wood is showing through or has started to grey, lightly sand and follow the full Preparation and Application instructions above.
Q. Can Sadolin Extra Durable Clearcoat be used on decking?
A. Sadolin recommend that Extra Durable Clearcoat is not used on decking due to its high surface build and shiny finish. This product is likely to wear quicker than a dedicated decking stain or oil and could pose a slip hazard.
I have used Sadolin products over the years and always found them excellent . They give good coverage good protection and are easy to use. This product does exactly this.
If this product protects the wood as it did the last time I used it, and there's no reason why it shouldn't, then happy days.
Sadolin was recommended by the suppliers of my substantial timber outbuilding that is used for business purposes. Sadolin is quite a sensitive material and requires care in application, but the results are worth it, even for the cost. After 6 years, the building looks as good as new - varnished with a warm honey glow. My experience is much like the manufacturer's recommendations: - Best results come when applied to fully dry wood in weather that is warm/dry but not hot (usually August, early September) - Don't try and paint over cracks or greyed wood, always sand back to fresh wood and re-apply. - I strongly recommend three coats, this comfortably lasts two years before a maintenance coat. You can feel that the coating is beginning to break down as, initially, it feels like the building is coated in plastic, then it slowly becomes rougher. I am not sure how many times you can apply the maintenance coat until it needs full strip and re-coat. - Care should be taken with the the south face of any building as, in the UK, this generally gets peak sun and the majority of rain. It may require more frequent maintenance. I should also mention the Technical Help people at Crown (who make Sadolin), who were most helpful. I think there is also a video on the product and how to apply it on Youtube. Good luck!
I realise i'm in he minority here, but i found this product bloody frustrating It seems to require very rapid application to avoid boundary marks It crawls up the brush very quickly and starts to dry into a lump there almost immediately Brush strokes are really hard to avoid 5 minutes after opening the tin, a skin starts to form
I am sorry to hear that you had this issue with the product, it doesn't sound right at all. Are you able to email me with details of the problem that you had, the method of of application and the conditions and some details of the project itself. I will be happy to offer some advice.
Kind regards Samantha.
I find curing times can be longer than expected and odour is quite high but the end result is very good. It's only been 3 months since I applied this to an exterior door so I don't yet know how durable it will be but so far it's looking good.
We used this on the exterior of our swimming poolhoue and over the period of a few months with the humidity it ran down the glass and was incredibly difficult to get off. However, we also used it on our oak gym building and it looks great
Sadolin clear coat is a doddle to use, yet leaves a professional finish.
Pay a bit more, get a better product, goes on lovely and lasts!
Have used other makes of wood varnish in the past and I think this is the best one I have used for ease of application and overall finish.
Very easy to apply. Applied three coats to new oak doors, produced a great finish.
I needed good weather to arrive and got the 2nd coat pronto on a new 12ft x 6ft shed which really looks the part now! The manufacturer use your products and recommended us to do the same which was good advice.
Easy to paint on and the door looks fantastic. Without a doubt I would recommend Sadolin extra durable clear coat. 10/10
I have used this product outside for several years and found it to be tough and does not peel or lift. Now trying it for marine use.
Product tends to take quite a long time to dry and is prone to leave brush marks but not much else like this on the market
Only used once for a table I built but seems to be just what I wanted it for
Great wood protection if used as described on the tin. I used it on a log cabin purchased new 7 years ago. I applied Sadolin woodstain followed Sadolin clear coat. I have applied a coat of Sadolin clear coat every other year since then. Cabin looks great.
Sadolin products are always good in my experience
Have used Sadolin wood stain and clear coat to protect a log cabin which is now 7 years old. The protection from the weather has been excellent. It is easy to apply and does not flake.Follow the instructions and you can't go wrong.
Expensive but easy to use, gives a good finish and lasts very well even when exposed to the worst of the winter weather and the hottest summer sun on a house in France.
when warm and sunny it spreads well and you get a good finish harder to spread with no sun
