Deck Shield Pro is a water-based penetrating decking treatment, its special formula works in different ways to protect and reduce slip without the use of aggregates or abrasives. Water is repelled from the surface so the timber is dryer for longer periods, this reduces the growth of spores and algae.
Ensure that the surface to be treated is dry, clean and free from any contaminants including dust, dirt, oil, grease, algae and mould. Any previous coatings need to be completely removed prior to application. Algae, moss and spores must be treated and removed with a good-quality algicide designed for this purpose. All residues of the algicide need to be removed and allowed to dry before applying Deck Shield Pro. Use a power washer to remove the dirt and grime from the grooves of the decking.
Shake the container well before use.
Ensure the surface is thoroughly dry and clean before proceeding. Do not pour directly onto the surface. Apply a generous even coat using a low-pressure spray, brush or long pile roller. For older or more porous surfaces, once the first coat has started to sink in (within 30 minutes) apply a second wet coat, removing any heavy pooling as you go. Remove as much excess product as possible.
Leave to dry for 24 hours.
Coverage: varies depending on the condition and age of decking.
New decking – 4-6m2 per litre
