Answer This Question

A:  Happy to help, Sean! Wolman RainCoat Water Base Sealer does dry clear, it is an exceptional, one coat, water base exterior water-repellent designed to provide protection against water damage and mildew. New wood needs to weather at least 6 months before RainCoat can be applied. Below is a link to the RainCoat Technical Data Sheet on the Home Depot website, this includes complete surface prep and application instructions. https://images.thdstatic.com/catalog/pdfImages/da/dad6c1e3-6591-4bc2-91f6-c28a8ceb2f7a.pdf - Rust-Oleum Product Support 6

    Q:Can this be applied to Brazilian hardwood decking. This is a very dense hard wood and most products will not be absorbed into wood. Will this adhere well enough and hold up.

    Answer This Question

    A:  We appreciate your interest, Danny. Rust-Oleum Wolman Raincoat Water-Based Sealer is suitable for use on all types of pressure treated lumber, Cedar, Redwood, Poplar, Hickory and other North American hardwoods. This product must be able to penetrate into the surface to ensure full adhesion. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

      Answer This Question

      A:  Happy to help, Craig! For the best results and proper drying, Rust-Oleum Wolman RainCoat Water-Based Water Repellent Sealer must be applied when air and surface temperature is between 50-90°F (10-32°C) and will remain between 50° and 90°F for at least 2 hours after application. You also want to ensure rain is not expected within 24 hours of application. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 3

        Q:Can this be applied with a spray gun
        by|Nov 20, 2022
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Thank you for reaching out, Robert. It is not recommended to apply Rust-Oleum Wolman Raincoat Water-Based with a spray gun. For best results, apply using either a ⅜” nap roller, a short nap stain pad, a synthetic paint brush or a pump-style sprayer, saturate and apply generously in a consistent pattern. Work to a wet edge at all times. Avoid rolling back into coated areas where drying has begun. To minimize lapping, always work from end to end on a few boards at a time, maintaining a wet edge. - Rust-Oleum Product Support 4

          This product, unlike others that are labeled CLEAR, is truly clear. I have used and been disappointed by others that were labeled clear but had some stain effect. Of course, you should wait a couple years before applying any such product to new PT lumber. Easy to apply. Easy cleanup. This says that one coat will do it. We shall see.

            Goes on smoothly, might be easier to spray it on as it has the consistency and appearance of milk. Once it dried, the rain beads up on it. It will not color the wood, it goes in clear and dries clear.
