Number of coats:2

Before applying Proluxe Sikkens Rubbol Siding Finish, prepare a two-coat test sample on bare wood to confirm desired color and sheen. Stir thoroughly and often during use. Intermix containers to ensure color uniformity. Two coats are recommended for raw wood. One or two coats on previously coated surfaces. (Some colors, or drastic color changes may require more than one coat to achieve a uniform finish). Keep a wet edge to prevent lap marks. Apply in the direction of the grain, coating a few boards at a time from end to end. Stop only at natural breaks, such as corners. Some types of siding can collect water on the V-groove such as Herringbone and Chevron. Wood siding that has been installed over rigid or aluminum foil faced foam sheathing will be exposed to high moisture conditions (condensation behind the wood siding) and excess heat build up because of the reflection of the heat from the sunlight. Under these conditions the coating may lose its adhesion to the surface (peeling), the wood may split, crack, warp and/or develop micro-organisms. In these cases we recommend the installation of furring strips, also called strapping, and coating the back of the siding prior to the application of the Sikkens systems.

Working With Rubbol® Siding Finish

Preparation Procedures All Types of Vertical Surfaces: New, Weathered, Uncoated Wood, Previously Coated Wood The best method to prepare vertical wood surfaces is to sand with 80-120 grit sandpaper. However, an alternative to sanding for preparation is listed below. Cleaning Recommendation

  • 1. Spray the surface with clean water, wetting the wood.
  • 2. Clean the surface with a solution of four ounces of 100% powdered Tri-Sodium Phosphate (TSP) or phosphate free substitute plus one quart of liquid bleach in three quarts of water. Apply this solution generously to the wood with a garden pump sprayer.
  • 3. Let the solution sit on the wood for 15-20 minutes. During this period, scrub the surface with a hard bristle brush to help remove mill glaze and weathering. Do not let the solution dry on the wood. Keep the wood wet.
  • 4. Power wash the cleaning solution from the wood with clean water. To prevent damaging the wood, do not exceed 500 psi. The nozzle must be a maximum of one foot from the surface for full effectiveness.
  • 5. Let the surface dry for three days before application (i.e., the moisture content is below 18%).

Tips for applying Sikkens Proluxe Rubbol solid color stain

It is always recommended to perform a two-coat test sample to confirm desired color results.

New rough-sawn wood (less than four weeks old) should be dry-brushed using a brush with stiff bristles to remove loose dirt and fibers. If debris is still present then follow the preparation procedures.

Extractive-prone wood species such as cedar or redwood may require a non-bleed oil-based primer.

Weathered grey wood or wood affected with blue fungi or rust from nails may be treated after the surface preparation by applying a solution of four ounces of oxalic acid crystals in one gallon of warm water. This solution should be allowed to sit on the affected areas for 15-20 minutes before the final power wash with clean water. Let dry three days before coating.

Fill all joints, cracks and nail holes with a good quality polyurethane or acrylic caulk/filler prior to applying the coating.

Coatings in poor condition, i.e., peeling and flaking, need to be completely removed before applying an new finish
