Cuprinol 5 Year Ducksback is a water-based, non-drip wood treatment for garden sheds, fences and other rough sawn timbers. Enriched with wax for a water-repellent finish that forces moisture to run off the surface like a duck's back.
Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from dust, dirt, loose debris and any other surface contaminants.
Please Note It is important that any wood preservative used does not contain wax, oil or silicon as these will penetrate the wood and repel any water-based product that is applied on top.
Cuprinol 5 Year Ducksback cannot be used over paints, varnishes or any surface coating / sealant.
Always do a test area before starting any project to test adhesion and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Do not apply in temperatures below 5°C, in damp conditions or if rain is likely before the product has dried. Stir thoroughly before and periodically during application.
Surfaces treated with Cuprinol Ducksback can be cleaned at regular intervals with a dampened, lint-free cloth or Cuprinol Garden Furniture Cleaner.
To restore the colour and water repellent qualities Cuprinol 5 Year Ducksback, simply brush the surface with a stiff broom or brush to remove any dirt and debris, then re-apply a fresh maintenance coat following the Preparation and Application instructions above.
Q. Can I use Cuprinol 5 year ducksback over other wood treatments?
A. It depends on the type of wood treatment previously used. If it's something like a wood preserver, or oil-based product that penetrates in to the surface of the timber, as long as the previous treatment was applied at least a year ago, Cuprinol Ducksback should be fine. We always recommend, however, that a small test area is done before starting any project to test adhesion and final finish. This product cannot be used on surfaces that are sealed with a wood paint or varnish.
If treating a garden shed or fence that has been previously coloured or stained with a pigmented wood preserver or other penetrative wood treatment, its worth noting that the old colour could influence the final colour of the Ducksback weatherproof treatment. Always do a test area first.
Q. Can I use Cuprinol 5 year Ducksback on wooden garden furniture?
A. This product has been specifically formulated to colour and protect wooden garden sheds and fences. To colour and protect garden furniture, we recommend Cuprinol Garden Shades.
