Ensure that surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free from dust, dirt, wax, grease and any other surface contaminants. Allow timber to acclimatise to its end-use environment. The moisture content of the timber should not exceed 18% prior to coating.
Always do a small test area before starting any project to assess the appearance of the finish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times.
Do not apply if there is a risk of rain, or when air / substrate temperatures are below 5℃ or above 30℃ during application or drying periods. Protect from frost and rain 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 and colour variations may be experienced. We do not recommend thinning Rubbol XD Gloss, as excessive thinning will reduce opacity.
For further information regarding coating thicknesses, refer to the Technical Information pdf above.
The need for maintenance is indicated by a lightening in colour and reduction in sheen as the coating erodes, and a loss of water-repellent properties. If this occurs, simply apply a fresh coat of Sikkens Rubbol XD Gloss, following the Preparation and Application instructions above.
This paint, when used in combination with the undercoat is superb. It gives a really glossy finish which seems not to degrade. I painted a north facing window frame and over a year later got around to doing another. There is almost no difference between the two finishes. Come summer I'll move to south facing windows, but the original finish is still glossy and shows no sign of pitting, algae or splits.
Great product have used before and it maintains its finish and stays white.
easy to use and excellent coverage with a splendid finish
Smooth on and excellent finish. Used to do sash windows. Hoping it stands the test of time like the other Sikkens products I've used.
Well worth the extra cost - flows smoothly and evenly from the brush, a pleasure to use. From previous experience, I know that Sikkens Rubbol provides durable, long lasting protection.
