Where to Use
For use on exterior wood surfaces: New or reconditioned wood decks,
lattice, spindles, outdoor furniture, steps, railings, fences,
siding, mailboxes, planters and benches.
Preparing Your Surfaces
Read the Lead Warning paragraph. Be sure surface is free of all dirt,
mildew stains, loose wood fibers and other foreign matter. Surfaces
must be sound and absolutely dry. Avoid spraying in windy conditions.
(Moisture content must be below 15% or wood must be exposed to dry
weather a minimum of 3 to 5 days.) Prepare previously stained or
weathered surfaces with Cabot® Problem-Solver® Wood Cleaner, Wood
Brightener or Wood Strippers. On untreated weathered surfaces,
scrubbing with a stiff bristle brush or sanding may be required to
completely remove all loose wood fibers.
For new and weathered wood surfaces, a light sanding with 80¬–10 grit
sandpaper is recommended to open the pores for maximum penetration.
Use Cabot® Problem-Solver® Wood Stripper #8004 to help remove
oil-based finishes from wood surfaces.

Shake frequently during application. Hold can 8–10 inches from

Overlap each stroke. Apply 1 coat only. Do not over-apply. Brush in
excess stain as needed. Overspray: Cover nearby
area to protect from spray mist.
