All timber surfaces should be fully clean, sound and dry
Where possible, the wood preservative and Clearcoat should be applied to all parts of the wood prior to fixing in place.
Where there is localised damage, or deterioration has occurred as a result of exposure of the factory coating for longer than 3 months, affected areas should be thoroughly sanded back to a sound substrate and recoated.
The backs of new glazing beads, end grains and rebates should be brought to a finish with the full Sadolin Extra Durable Clearcoat system prior to fixing.
The use of linseed oil putty or modified, non-setting compounds are not recommended in conjunction with Sadolin wood protection systems. To confirm compatibility, please consult the manufacturer of the relevant glazing material. Silicone glazing materials should only be applied upon completion of the finishing coats.
Sadolin Extra Durable Clearcoat is perfect for a wide range of exterior wood projects including windows, doors and more.
This product is not suitable for high-traffic areas such as flooring and decking.
The amount you need may vary depending on surface condition, moisture content, method of application and climatic conditions during application.
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 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.
If needed, wipe down with a damp cloth and 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 repellence.
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, please sand off 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.
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.
Excellent external wood protect tion
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
good product from top company
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.
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.
After many hours of research what stain / preservative would be best for Western Red Cedar I chose Sadolin Extra Durable Clear because I wanted to retain the natural look as much as possible. Very disappointed. It is now ginger. Yuuuk ! Wood Finishes Direct Website invites customers to ask for advice and someone would return my call. I explained what had happened and asked for advice to rectify the matter. After 4 days no response..........
when warm and sunny it spreads well and you get a good finish harder to spread with no sun
