Sikkens Cetol BL Unitop is a water-based, acrylic and urethane varnish for use on a range of interior surfaces. It can be used to protect interior timber, previously painted surfaces, brickwork, concrete and masonry.
Perfect for interior projects such as window frames, hand-rails, skirting boards, wood panelling and cladding, doors and furniture. It can be used on bare wood or over a suitable wood stain.
Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from dust, dirt, wax, grease or any other surface contaminants. The moisture content of timber to be coated should not exceed 16%.
Always do a test area before starting any project to assess product suitability and final finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Do not apply if air / substrate temperatures are below 8°C or above 25°C during application or drying periods. Protect from frost until dry. Failure to meet these requirements may adversely affect the drying, visual quality and durability of the finish.
Ensure product is thoroughly stirred before and during application, otherwise sheen variations may be experienced. Sikkens Cetol BL Unitop is supplied ready for use. Do not thin.
Clean brushes and equipment immediately after use with lukewarm water. Do not use hot water.
When looking to maintain the coating, take note of the current condition of the finish. Then clean, degrease and sand to create a key. If excessive damage has occurred, the surface must be abraded back to clean, bare timber, before applying 1-2 coats of Sikkens Cetol BL Unitop as required.
Please Note: If the timber has been previously stained, avoid sanding back to the underlying stain. For maintenance applications, the same drying times and application instructions are applicable.
