Removes the Following Coating Barriers from weathered wood:
Ground-In Dirt, Mildew, Mold & Algae Stains, Weathered Gray Surface,
Old Sealers & Clear Finishes
Use on all types of pressure-treated lumber,
plastic and wood composite materials, North American
hardwoods such as Poplar and Hickory, and weathered Cedar
and Redwood. (For new Cedar, Redwood or exotic hardwoods,
use Wolman Deck & Fence Brightener Liquid Concentrate).
Note: New generation (non-CCA) pressure-treated lumber,
when initially installed may develop pronounced mildew growth
during the first few months of weathering.
To reduce or avoid mildew staining allow wood to weather for
1 to 3 months before applying a protective coating. To
immediately protect against water damage, prep the
surface with DeckBrite and pre-treat with Wolman RainCoat®
Clear Water Repellent–Oil-Base. Allow
6 months before applying a protective coating.
Mix ¾ cup powder per one (1) gallon lukewarm
tap water. Solution will foam and appear bright blue. Stir occasionally
and wait for approximately 5 minutes for powder to dissolve.
If using cold water, a few more minutes may be necessary.
When blue color disappears, powder is completely
dissolved, and DeckBrite solution is ready to apply. Use
within 6 hours of mixing. Do not mix with any other products.
Make sure entire wood surface is dry and free of dust, dirt and
debris. If the surface is hot to the touch or indirect sunlight,
dampen with fresh water to cool. Apply when outside temperatures
are above 40°F.
Pre-wet surface with fresh water. Working on 20 sq. ft. at a time
to maintain optimum surface wetness, apply solution and let sit
and foam for 10 minutes. If solution dries prematurely, keep it wet
with additional solution as needed. On horizontal surfaces:
Apply solution with a pump sprayer, airless sprayer,brush, mop or roller.
On vertical surfaces: Apply solution with a pump sprayer or deep-nap
roller, working from the bottom to the top of the structure.
Coverage Rate – Depending on wood age and species, surface
porosity, method of application, one (1) gallon of solution covers
approximately 150 sq. ft.
Brush or Pressure Wash:
Brush: Briefly scrub surface with Wolman WOODWORX® Deck
Brush or other stiff, short-bristle brush, using moderate pressure
Pressure wash: Use a 40° tip and 1,500-2,500 PSI for pressure
-treated wood and hardwood, 500-1,000 PSI for Cedar and
Redwood. Move lengthwise with boards to avoid cut marks
across grain. Either technique helps ensure old surface is entirely
Rinse: If pressure washing is not employed, after brushing, rinse
thoroughly with a garden hose, using the highest pressure nozzle
setting available. On a vertical surface, continually rinse
brightened areas to avoid streaking. Rinse any wood
fibers off surrounding surfaces immediately. When dry,
wood surface should appear clean, bright and free of mildew
and algae stains.
Recommended Number of Coats – Apply one (1) coat,
and allow to sit and foam for entire recommended time of 10 minutes.
Heavily weathered, extremely dirty or badly stained areas may
require a second application.
Bare wood and/or coated surfaces can become slippery when wet.
Use caution when walking on wet surfaces.
