Sikkens Cetol Novatop
Application

  • Not suitable for decking or other areas subject to high levels of abrasion. Not suitable for use on 'oily' timbers such as iroko or teak.

Description

Sikkens Cetol Novatop is a high build, semi-transparent woodstain used as a one coat brush finish over Cetol Novatech, on planed softwoods and hardwood joinery.

This high solids, low solvent technology, gives a flexible weather-resistant semi-gloss finish for window and door joinery. The Cetol Novatech/Novatop two-coat system (equivalent to a traditional three-coat woodstain system) results in reduced application costs with no compromise on durability and performance.

Execution:

  • New/bare wood: One coat onto Cetol Novatech.
  • Maintenance: One coat.

Features and benefits:

  • Highly translucent to bring out the beauty of woodgrain.
  • Five-year maintenance cycle.
  • One coat application and maintenance.
  • Cost effective and labour saving.
  • Excellent durability.

Application:

  • Exterior softwood and hardwood joinery, windows and doors.
  • Not suitable for decking or other areas subject to high levels of abrasion. Not suitable for use on 'oily' timbers such as iroko or teak.
