Sand surface until wood is smooth to the touch and no slivers or rough edges remain. Hammer all nails deep enough to apply putty. Dust off surfaces completely then wipe with a clean rag.
If repainting, remove all paint by wire brushing, scraping, or by using BOYSEN® Paint & Varnish Remover #141.


Thoroughly shake the can before opening. Apply BOYSEN® Xyladecor™ direct to base wood without primers or undercoats either by brush, spray or by dipping in an open trough or tank to achieve total covering rate. Shake and stir Xyladecor™ often during use.

By Brush: Apply at least 3 full brush coats, laying the paint into the wood rather than brushing out. Leave each coat for about thirty (30) minutes, depending on the weather and the absorption rate. Lightly brush or wipe over once along the grain to remove excess material and to smooth out any runs.

By Spray: Use a coarse nozzle (about 1-5 mm) giving a steam of material rather than a fine atomizing type paint spray. Working pressure should be approximately 44 lbs. / m2. Spraying is not recommended for planed surfaces.
By dipping: Dip the timber in BOYSEN® Xyladecor™ for 2 minutes, varying the time required according to the absorbency of the wood. Stand the timber on end and allow to drain. If necessary, lightly brush the surface once in the direction of the grain before it dries.

Note: If a very even color finish is desired on wood with varying degrees of absorbency, apply BOYSEN® Xyladecor™ Colorless first before applying colored varieties of Xyladecor™. BOYSEN® Xyladecor™ Colorless is not recommended for exterior use on its own.
