      Q:can this product be used if the temperature is 45 degrees
      by|Nov 8, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Apply product only when air, product and surface temperatures are between 50ºF (10ºC) and 90ºF (32ºC). Avoid application in direct sunlight or on hot surfaces. It is not recommended to apply product if rain is expected within 24 hours. Surface temperatures can be significantly lower than air temperature so just be aware of that.

        Q:How often is retreating needed?
        by|Oct 21, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Durability depends on sun exposure, surface preparation and product application, To determine if it’s time to reapply, test wood for absorbency by sprinkling water on the surface – if water is absorbed within 30 sec. to 2 min., depending on climate, the surface is ready for finishing. If the wood is not absorbing the water, let the wood weather longer and re-test.

          It’s great!
          I was a little skeptical getting this, I’d assume it wouldn’t work since my dad insisted I get some fancier one I’m super impressed. Got this to cover my kids playhouse before it rained so it wouldn’t get ruined. The water is pretty much repelled off it!

            Turned out orange
            Woodland cedar is the color we bought & it turned out burnt orange. We had to strip it all off. Very misleading color on the container. We made sure to follow the instructions as well.

              Worst piece of junk EVER!!!
              I purchased this spray to seal a few wooden armrests from some patio chairs that had been exposed to the elements for, I guess a few years. After thoroughly sanding the armrests, I decided to use this product to seal them and protect them from mother nature for the next few years. The product clearly indicates that it works on wood--as well as other surfaces! Boy, what a waste of money this product turned out to be! There's another Olympic spray that's made specifically for wood, but after reading several reviews indicating that the product "never" really dries, I decided to take a stab at this one and boy, what a huge mistake it was! After applying this spray on the wooden armrests (at 12" distance as indicated by the instructions), it left a nasty whitish film that stained my entire project! (See pictures). I ended up applying another product (TWP) with a paint brush, which is an excellent deck sealant, but it was able to cover the white stains left by this piece of junk! So not only did I end up wasting my money but my time too! I just wish that at least I could get the money I paid for this product back. Who knows, maybe it does a good job sealing concrete or other surfaces but definitely not wood. Bottom line: AVOID THIS PRODUCT ON WOOD SURFACES AT ALL COSTS!!!

                non-uniform stain
                I followed instructions to a T on storage and application. It started out a beautiful hue and got darker and darker. Deck looks veey bad now. I shook the can every time before pouring into the paint pan to ensure it was well mixed. I applied only when the deck was shaded. It was under 90F temp. Applied an even amount throughout. Seriously disappointed in the outcome

                  This is an excelent solution for "painting" when the area you need to either protect from rust or humidity is framed or adjacent to another surfa ce or material with a different color. For there is no need to use blue tape or be afraid of spray mist falling over such areas with an unwanted color.

                  So far so good
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a good concrete sealant, I used it on the garage floor and it works well, it was so easy to apply, it. looks clean and dries nicely to an invisible finish. I like that it repels water, liquids, oils, etc., and does not make the floor slippery, it has a good performance and I am satisfied with the results.
