Sikkens Rubbol Satura Plus is a high build, opaque coating for exterior hardwood and softwood joinery, as well as suitably primed metals and hard plastics. Being moisture vapour permeable, it allows water vapour to escape so moisture doesn't get trapped in the wood. It is formulated to provide solid colour and provide protection from the elements.

Ensure that timber surfaces to be treated are suitably prepared, clean, dry and free from surface dust, dirt, wax and grease. Allow timber to acclimatise to its end-use environment. The moisture content should not exceed 18% prior to coating.

New or Bare Timber

  1. Degrease any exposed bare timber surface by wiping with a lint-free cloth dampened in a suitable solvent
  2. Allow solvent to evaporate fully before over-coating with Sikkens Rubbol Satura Plus
  3. Any resinous deposits should be removed with a scraper
  4. Any mould and algae growth must be eradicated using a suitable fungicide or mould and mildew remover
  5. A knotting solution may be used to reduce extractive discolouration, however, knotting is not always fully effective in sealing in resin, and the adhesion of coatings can be impaired
  6. When filling, use a suitable wood filler specifically designed for use with timber, as general or all purpose fillers are not suitable, particularly on external areas
  7. Do not use wood preservatives or on substrates which have had water-repellent preservative pre-treatments applied
  8. To ensure optimum durability, Sikkens recommend applying a coat of Sikkens Rubbol Primer Plus prior to Sikkens Rubbol Satura Plus
  9. Where possible, at least the first coat should be applied all round prior to fixing
  10. Only use non-ferrous screws, nails and fixings

Previously Coated Timber

  1. Denib using a fine grade nylon abrasive pad or a fine grade (P240 or finer) wet or dry silicon carbide abrasive paper, in the direction of the grain, ensuring not to break through the surface coating
  2. Remove any remaining sanding dust prior to application of Satura Plus paint
  3. 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 treated as 'New Timber'

Old Timber

  • All damaged or decayed timber must be removed and replaced, cutting at least 25mm into sound timber

Always do a small test area before starting any project to assess the colour and appearance of the finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.

  1. Apply 2 coats of Rubbol Satura Plus with a good quality synthetic bristle brush or microfibre roller
  2. Allow 18 hours drying time between coats

Regular Cleaning

Treated surfaces can be wiped clean 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
  4. Apply 1 or 2 coats of Sikkens Rubbol Satura Plus as required

Excellent finish by Imran Ahmed

Used with the primer although that probably wasn't necessary as I was painting new, raw, untreated timber. Have a nice white opaque finish as required.
