Timber surfaces to be treated with Sikkens Cetol Filter 7 Plus must be clean, dry and free from surface dust, dirt, wax and grease. Wood to be treated should be allowed to acclimatise to its end-use environment before treating. Moisture content of the timber should not exceed 18% prior to coating.
Decayed timber must be removed and replaced, cutting at least 25mm into sound timber.
Always do a test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Sikkens Filter 7 Plus is ready to use straight from the tin and does not require thinning.
Stir thoroughly before and periodically during application to ensure a consistent finish. Only apply at temperatures ranging between 5℃ and 35℃ and a relative humidity of no more than 85%.
Repair any color defects with Sikkens Cetol HLS Plus or Sikkens Cetol Filter 7 Plus in the right colour and apply one further coat of Cetol Filter 7 Plus overall.
An intelligent alternative to traditional varnish. I use it extensively on my 1907 Cornish fishing boat to protect the wood of masts and spars. It's easy to apply because it flows smoothly off the brush and needs far fewer coats than traditional varnish - two instead of six. It looks elegant when dry, not as hard a shine as varnish but an attractive gleam.
Nice product, excellent finish. Tad expensive but you get what you pay for
Long recoat times. Allow plenty of time for three coats.
Good quality finish, easy to apply with clear directions for use
Well known wood treatment, as good as I had expected.
Excellent product and service
We have been using this product for several years. It is ideal for our conservatory, house doors and windows.
For once after applying alternative brands this one did the job. Let's see if it lasts 5 years.
Great product. First class results and easy to use. Great advice and service from wood finishes direct.
I found using the website easy to navigate and to understand the technical issues with what I wanted. The Sikkens light oak arrived within 24 hours of ordering. All very impressive.
This filter7 is even better than the previous version with far better coverage and less tendency to run
Easy to apply, looks great
I bought this product on the recommendation of the guy who supplied the timber. I have used it on some new Douglas fir to be used as barge boards replacing timber that has rotted. I applied two coats each of base and finish coat and the colour match is close to the rest of the Douglas fir window frames nearby. The real test of course will be in several years time after the sun rain and frost have done their work. All I can say at this stage is that I am happy with the results so far.
Quality product as you would expect
Nothing to add to the above. We were recommended to get the product by the very skilled firm that made a beautiful outside garden door for us.
If this new version is as good as the old Cetol Marine it will be easy to apply and last years (literally) longer than usual yacht varnish. It will not have quite the appearance of true varnish; however if you want to spend your time sailing rather than painting you will be well rewarded.
I have been using this product for 20+ years on my facias and soffits. It has never been cheap, but a little does go a long way. Every 3 years or so, a light sanding of facias etc followed by 2 coats of Sikkens and you are good for another 3 or 4 years, depending on the exposure to the sun and weather.
Sickens was recommended to me 15 years ago, and it has proven to give a better, much more durable finish than anything else I've tried for natural wood. I moved out of my last house 4 years after doing the external doors with these Sikkens primer and topcoat and it was still perfect.
