Sikkens Rubbol BL Satura is used as a mid-coat for wooden window frames, doors and other wooden structures. It can also be applied to cleaned and sanded alkyd paint surfaces, for indoor use. For outdoor applications always use in conjunction with a waterborne primer.

Bare or New Timber

  • Degrease any exposed bare timber surface by wiping with a soft lint-free cloth dampened in a suitable solvent
  • Allow solvent to evaporate fully before over coating with Sikkens Rubbol Satura paint
  • Any resinous deposits should be removed with a scraper
  • Lightly sand down any damaged areas for a smooth finish, making sure to remove all sanding dust prior to application of Sikkens Rubbol Satura
  • Before application of Rubbol Satura, wood should first be coated with a primer such as Sikkens Rubbol BL Primer
  • Allow primer to fully dry before application of Rubbol BL Satura paint
  • The use of knotting agents is not recommended as they are not always fully effective in 'sealing in' resin, and adhesion of coatings may be impaired
  • If using a wood filler, ensure that it is one that is specifically designed for use with timber, as general or "all purpose" fillers may not be suitable
  • Only use non-ferrous screws, nails and fixings

Old Timber

Decayed timber must be removed and replaced, cutting at least 25mm into sound timber.

Always do a test area before starting any project to test the appearance of the final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Sikkens Rubbol Satura is ready-to-use from the tin, do not thin. Moisture content of the timber should not exceed 18% prior to coating.

  1. Apply a full coat of Rubbol BL Satura with a good quality paint brush in the direction of the wood grain
  2. Allow 6 hours to dry
  3. Lightly sand (denib) and apply a second coat as above

For further information relating to this product and its application, refer to the relevant product data sheet from Sikkens.

Regular Cleaning

For regular cleaning, wipe wood surfaces with a lint-free cloth and warm water.


  1. Lightly sand with a fine grade abrasive paper to keep splinters and rough edges away
  2. If the timber has been stained, lightly sand but avoid sanding back to underlying stain
  3. Remove all dust thoroughly and apply 1 or 2 coats of Sikkens Rubbol BL Satura

The best paint you can buy A pleasure to use and superb finish by Anthony Griffiths

Wow amazing stuff! by Jason Robinson

This product is wouldn't believe it is water based how it spreads out,very similar to oil based. If you take the time getting the prep right, you will be rewarded with a superb finish that you would think was plastic coated. I am no decorated although I do like to get my wood trims looking nice. Best product out there do not hesitate to buy

Excellent product, as expected the perfect partner to the undercoat by Andrew Farmer

Easy to use (can be a bit messy) as it flows well, and provides an excellent topcoat for the primer/undercoat that I am using (Sikkens Rubbol BL Primer ). Ensure that the preparation instructions are closely followed, and a hardwearing finish will result. I have used the product before, but this is the first time I have used it with the primer, very pleased with the result.
