Sikkens Rubbol XD Gloss is a high build, opaque gloss coating for use on all exterior softwood and hardwood joinery and trim, as well as suitably primed metals and hard plastics. Provides outstanding gloss retention. Flexible coating moves with the wood which prevents cracking and peeling.
Surfaces should be primed with Sikkens Rubbol Primer Plus prior to application. This ensures even application and coverage with the best possible bond with the substrate to minimise chances of flaking and peeling.
Ensure that timber surfaces to be treated are suitably prepared, clean, dry and free from surface dust, dirt, wax and grease. The moisture content should not exceed 18% prior to coating.
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.
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.
Ensure product is thoroughly stirred before and during application, otherwise sheen and slight colour variations may be experienced. This product does not require thinning, as this will reduce opacity.
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.
