Answer: 
The next step before applying Wolman Raincoat Water Repellent Sealer is to determine if there is a surface barrier present which would prevent the proper penetration or adhesion of a new coating. To conduct a Splash Test, sprinkle several handfuls of water on a few distinct areas of the surface. If the water absorbs rapidly, the surface is ready to be coated.

The next step before applying Wolman Raincoat Water Repellent Sealer is to determine if there is a surface barrier present which would prevent the proper penetration or adhesion of a new coating. To conduct a Splash Test, sprinkle several handfuls of water on a few distinct areas of the surface. If the water absorbs rapidly, the surface is ready to be coated. If the water beads, puddles or is not absorbed, an internal or external barrier exists, and must be eliminated before coating can begin. Then follow the preparation steps listed on the can. Read Less

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 27 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to use I researched the available products for sealing outdoor wood structures with the intention of protecting my wood deck railings from the harsh south Mississippi sun. I'm convinced the RainCoat product is the best available and I trust Rust Oleum products from years of successful use of their paints. This sealer sprayed on easily and clean up was a breeze. I used it on both some new wood and some three year old previously unsealed wood. The new wood was good after one coat. The older wood soaked up the sealer as fast as I could spray it on. I waited a week and hit that wood again. After the next rain all wood surfaces were beading the water. I'm very pleased. June 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stuff! I bought an airless sprayer at HF for about $200 and sprayed the wolmans straight from the can on to my 2 week old redwood fence. My fenc guy wanted $2k!!! It worked great and soaked in nicely without changing the color or adding anything we did not want. Since it was primarily oil based, it was pretty easy clean up (still needed mineral spirits) and the mess was minimal. If it works as well as everyone says, it is a great value. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by penetrates into the wood much more effectively than a stain This water repellant can be used in place of a stain. It is thinner (less viscous) than water and therefore penetrates into the wood much more effectively than a stain. I'll learn how long it lasts and how well it stops mold and mildew from forming in the years to come. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wood fence sealer This sealer went on easily with a garden sprayer. It's fool proof to apply. No runs show up no matter how messy it is applied. I just applied it in June so I don't know how long it will last but it seems to have really soaked into the wood. It dries clear but brought out the natural grain in the wood. It was a little pricey but you get what you pay for. j June 28, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The only problem! No one sale it in store :-( The sealer go on easy. Can be used with a spary bottle. It stated clear, but will make the wood darker. The dryer the wood, the darker it get. Because my left side of the redwood fence was put up a month before the right side finish. Still need to wait to see how it perform in the rain. 3 stars only, because no one sales it in my local area. And it takes 11 days to get here from the the time purchased. My came with a big dent on one side of the metal can. Did not spill any, but according to my spary bottle. I only got four and a half gallons in my five gallons can :-( Order another can, because cover less than it stated. Unless you put on a super thin coat. May 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by No Good Had used Thompson's in the past but they changed the formulation and it is now like molasses, so you can no longer spray it. Ordered 10 gallons of this and it sprayed great but it appears to be nothing more than mineral spirits. It soaked in quickly but there is NO beading of water after three weeks of drying. It doesn't waterproof at all. Pretty much a waste of almost $200. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good quality went on like a dream, good coverage .... supposed to last at least 3 years between applications.... time will tell !! (used on a newer Wolmanized Deck) I noticed that the lumber they used had some cracks and knot-holes, etc.... this product sealed them up nicely (protects from freeze-thaw) . Also notice now that the water beads up real nice on the horizontal surfaces. June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Performed as promised Although I rated this product with a 4, I would not recommend it to others for two reasons: 1. If you need just one gallon more, it is NOT available in the store nor for purchase on-line like the 5 gal was. 2. This product has been discontinued and is only available for purchase from other vendors on-line. What I would recommend is that Wolman's Rain Coat water based product be purchased instead.
