Finishing & Protection

It is recommended that a finish is applied to all surfaces, including ends, before installation. The type of coating will be determined by the final finish and appearance desired.

Prefer the silver-grey look?

Sioo Impregnation quickly provides a clean wood surface with an attractive silvery-grey finish often desired but seldom achieved from new wood or damaged applications.

What is weathering?

There is a risk involved when leaving wood exposed to the elements. During the weathering process wood can appear unsightly as the material can blacken due to moisture getting into the fibres and pulling out tannins and extractives. Finish protects the wood from moisture absorption and UV degradation.

Application & Maintenance Advice

Where to Use

  • Exterior: cabins, decks, cladding, fences, shutters, outdoor furniture.
  • Softwood, Hardwood, Tropical and Thermo Heated Wood.
  • New or old wood
  • Previously painted or stained wood surfaces.


Preparation of Wood

  • New Wood :
    • New wood often has a hard shiny surface known as mill glaze, this and the moisture content of new wood prevents the proper adhesion of any coating. Initially, apply a coat of SEASONITE, and allow wood to weather a minimum 6 months. After 6 months apply SOLID COLOUR STAIN.
  • Weathered Wood - grey, blackened or stained :
    • Restore and clean the wood with NET-TROL.
    • If necessary sand the wood (100 grit)
  • Previously coated wood :
    • Strip and neutralise with NET-TROL.
    • On Oak and Chestnut, manualy or mechanicaly sand the wood, dust off and wash with NET-TROL to clean. Allow to dry.


Recommendations before applying

  • Purchase sufficient product for the whole job and mix all product together before starting, to avoid colour variances.
  • Stir or shake can well.
  • Wood surface must be clean, dry (3 days of dry weather) and free of dirt, mildew and other contaminants before applying the SOLID COLOUR STAIN.
  • Do not dilute.
  • Before starting application, test the colour choice on a small area and allow to dry to determine final colour.


Tannin Bleed

  • Please note we cannot guarantee this product will prevent tannin bleed.
  • Tannin is a water soluble extractive that occurs naturally in many wood species including Western Red Cedar. The extractives can be dissolved and leached from the wood by water. When the water moves to the surface of the cladding it evaporates and can leave behind extractives in the form of a reddish brown stain.


    • Apply a coat of SOLID COLOUR STAIN.
    • Allow to dry 3-4 hours.
    • Apply a second coat.
    • When applying by spray, always back-brush or back-roll immediately after application to ensure uniformity of colour, coverage and penetration



    • Surfaces with harsh exposure to weather or traffic will wear more quickly than other areas. In these cases, clean the damaged areas and apply the product in accordance with the directions.
    • Clean coated surfaces especially decks as part of a normal maintenance plan. Observing an precautions.
    • Warranty 5 years on horizontal surfaces. 15 years on vertical surfaces.
