Sikagard Wood Preserver Q&As
How does wood preserver work?
It works to prevent the degradation of wood over time by acting as a protective undercoat. When penetrating the timber, wood preserver is able to stabilise the natural moisture content in the wood, protecting it from future rot and decay.
How long does wood preserver take to dry?
When applying a second or third coat, you’ll need to leave at least 2 hours of drying time between each application. When applying paint, varnish or a stain over the top of the wood preserver, we’d recommend waiting up to 48 hours before application, to guarantee the solution has completely set.
Is wood preserver waterproof?
Sikagard Wood Preserver is not a waterproof solution. If being used externally, you’ll need to apply a waterproof stain, paint or varnish over the top to seal the wood from moisture.
Can you paint over wood preserver?
Yes, you can paint over wood preserver. It acts as a pre-treatment, expertly preparing the wood for the application of paint, varnish or a stain.
