See the 160 Technical Datasheet for full details, however in brief:
- Make sure the substrate surface is clean and sound (for wood with existing treatments test a small area to ensure compatibilty. Painted and weathered surfaces should be sanded down to bare/sound wood).
- Woods rich in active substances should be pre-treated with Auro Special Primer 117
- For interior use you should apply at least two coats
- For exterior use apply 2-3 coats for maximum protection or alternatively 1 coat of Auro 127 Hard Primer and 1-2 coats of Auro 160 Woodstain.
