CUTEK® Restore is a powerful timber restoring agent and can be used diluted or undiluted. Dilution and coverage can vary depending on the smoothness and density of your timber as well as the severity of staining and/or weathering. Always test to determine if your chosen dilution is effective in the restoration of your specific timber.
If required, dilute the CUTEK® Restore concentrate with water; refer to dilution guidelines and complete a test patch to ensure the right dilution for your timber.
Wet your timber prior to applying CUTEK® Restore. Apply CUTEK® Restore liberally to wetted timber with a brush, roller, lambswool applicator or broom.
Let CUTEK® RESTORE do the work by leaving it on the surface for 1 hour to 24 hours depending on the severity of staining or discolouration. It may be necessary to
scrub stubborn stains moderately with a stiff fibre brush.
Once CUTEK® Restore has cleaned the timber, it must be water rinsed off thoroughly. For best results, power rinse with a high-pressure washer set to approximately 50 bar (750 p.s.i.) with a fan jet pattern. REMOVAL WITH A GARDEN HOSE IS NOT SUFFICIENT.
CAUTION must be used when cleaning soft timber. Reduce the pressure or adjust distance from the substrate to avoid damaging the sapwood. It is important to adjust your cleaning process to avoid damage to the wood fibre.
The longer that CUTEK® Restore is left on the substrate, the greater the rinse time required. Clean from the highest point and work down methodically using long even strokes in the direction of the grain.
Note: certain types of wood surfaces may leave a raised grain effect after pressure washing is completed. Sanding or poly pad scrubbing may be required to smooth out this condition.
DO NOT use “turbojets” on timber.
