Cuprinol Garden Shades is a decorative and protective water repellent finish for garden wood and gives an opaque matt finish. It is suitable for use on planed or rough sawn bare wood, making it ideal for pergolas, gazebos, treillis, planters, sheds, summerhouses and garden furniture. It will hide weathered creosote or previous fence treatments as well as the effects of weathering without obliterating the natural wood texture. It is safe for use near plants. Before preparing any surface for painting, read the Safety, Health and Environmental information on page 2 about old lead-based paints.
Try a test area first to ensure that colour and adhesion are acceptable. Colour testers are available to assist in your colour choice. Please note that the colour in the can may be different to the final shade when dry.
Stir thoroughly, before and during use. Brush on product, evenly, along the grain.
Shake pack thoroughly before pouring contents into the Cuprinol Fence Sprayer or Cuprinol Power Sprayer. Refer to the Sprayer user guide for full instructions before every use. Cover any nearby surfaces in case of overspray. Any overspray should be cleaned up immediately (whilst still wet) with water and household detergent. Do not apply in temperatures below 5 degrees C, in damp conditions or if rain is likely before product has dried.
Cuprinol Garden Shades will be touch dry in 1 hour under normal weather conditions. Where a second coat is required, allow up to 8 hours in between coats. On areas subject to wear, such as garden furniture, allow a few days before heavy use or contact with soft furnishings.
Reseal can after use. Clean up spills while still wet. After use, remove as much product as possible from brushes before cleaning with water. Do not store or use in extremes of temperature and protect from frost.
