This product is particularly effective on large areas of timber such as cladding, fascias, decking and rough sawn timber. It is also ideal as a base stain on new joinery which is to be subsequently treated with Sadolin Extra. Not suitable to use on surfaces previously coated with a medium/ high build coating.
