Usage Summary
Surface Preparation†

Proper surface preparation is required.

  • For failing coatings or to remove loose wood fibers, use a product such as BEHR PREMIUM® No. 64 Wood Stain & Finish Stripper followed by BEHR PREMIUM No. 63 All-In-One Wood Cleaner to neutralize the wood.
  • When No. 64 is not needed, a product such as No. 63 MUST be used to remove mill glaze and clean the wood surface.
  • After using either No. 64 or No. 63, rinse thoroughly with a garden hose or pressure washer. When rinsing with a pressure washer, use the broadest spray pattern while keeping the nozzle at least 24" away from the surface.
  • Remove any standing water and allow the area to dry to under 20% moisture content (approximately 1-3 hours of dry time under normal conditions) before coating. If any sanding is required to remove wood fibers/fuzz, allow the surface to dry completely.
  • Protect all surrounding areas not intended to be stained including vegetation, windows, concrete, etc.

For best results, a lambswool pad applicator is recommended over large deck areas.

  • Shake product thoroughly prior to opening.
  • Must apply between 40-90˚F (4.5-32˚C).
  • Avoid applying in direct sunlight or to hot surfaces.
  • Coating will resist rain after approximately 1 hour.
  • Product may be applied to damp wood surfaces (i.e. within 1-3 hours of rainfall, rinsing, and removal of any standing water).
  • Use caution when pouring product as some splashing may occur.
  • Immediately clean up any inadvertent spills with mineral spirits or paint thinner.
  • For multiple gallons, combine into larger container for color uniformity.
  • Mix product occasionally throughout application.
  • Test product for penetration and color on a small hidden area before proceeding.
  • Use a natural bristle brush for areas requiring more accuracy. Use of rollers is not recommended.
  • A high quality pump sprayer with a variable tip may be used.
  • Lightly saturate the surface and back-brush any excess finish. Be sure to eliminate puddling and evenly distribute the finish.
  • Maintain a wet edge when applying.
  • Apply product end-to-end or to board lengths to prevent lap marks.
  • Avoid applying finish too heavily. One coat application. Applying a thin second coat will darken the color of the finish if desired.
  • For optimum performance, coat all accessible sides especially board ends.
  • When color has faded and water is readily absorbed by the substrate, prep/clean with a product such as BEHR PREMIUM No. 63, allow to dry, and apply a new/fresh coat of wood finish. Product can be applied annually if needed.
Dry Time
  • Finish dries in 60 minutes (i.e. dry to touch, allows for foot traffic and placement of furniture).
  • For disposal of empty containers and unused product contact your household refuse collection service.
