Key Features: Rystix Exterior Armadek has an ultra long life of up to 8 years, is UV resistant, weatherproof and deep penetrating - all when applied correctly. This product has additional features both allowing the timber to breathe (micro-porous) and allowing the natural grain of the timber to show (translucent) 

Tips: Please DO NOT use Rystix Exterior Armadek as protection for high natural oil woods such as Cedar, Teak and Ipé. This can cause the woods to become flakey and will lead to the product losing a lot of its protection capabilities. We do not recommend the use of this product on horizontal surfaces such as decking, we offer an alternative product for these surfaces, Rystix Penetrating Oil.

Coverage and Drying: 8m2 per litre coverage (1 coat), fast drying time of approximately 30 minutes between coats (drying time may vary according to the porosity of the substrate, season, temperature and exposure conditions).


See below colour chart:



Rystix Exterior Armadek is a superior quality water based protective coating specially designed to  protect and beautify outdoor wooden decks and can also be used on outdoor furniture and cabins. Armadek is an acrylic based product that forms a tough wear resistant coating on the surface of the timber. UV filters, inhibitors and pigmentation combine to provide an exceptionally high degree of UV resistance and special agents prevent dry rot, insect and fungal attack.

Armadek is an extremely quick drying and low odour product. Where product lifespan is likely to be determined by physical abrasion rather than weathering then the choice should be to use Exterior  Armadek.

Armadek can be used to coat external timbers (beware of applying a water based product to timber with high natural oil content such as Teak, Ipé and Cedar) and application purposes include cladding, log-cabins, general outdoor wooden furniture, windows and doors, fencing, fascias and sheds (see Exterior Sealer for an alternative). Armadek can be applied by spray, pad applicator roller or brush. The refurbishment process for Timbacare is different to that for varnishes on the market, in that these other products need to be removed from the surface of the timber (scraping or sanding) before re-coating can take place. Where Timbacare has been previously used, it is only necessary to clean the surface with detergent water and allow it to dry before applying a fresh coating. The process of recoating over time simply replaces the layers that have been lost to weathering.

In situations where maintenance turnaround times are critical Armadek is an ideal product because of its rapid drying time.

    Rystix Timber Treatment

    Published by Darren on 23rd Jan 2017

    I got myself totally lost when investigating various options for he treatment of the cabin. Decided in the end to go for the treatment recommended by CabinsUnlimited. Not disappointed, but thought it might be more deeply penetrating. Seems to just form a layer on top of the wood. Time will tell how effective it is. Looks brilliant after 6 months though. One tip: I was planning on keeping the cabin a natural colour, and deciding in the summer, after living with it for a few months, what colour to have it. DON'T. Painting a colour after the neutral wasn't easy.

    Alex cabin sealed with Rystix a year ago.

    Published by Rachel Fitzgerald on 26th May 2016

    We bought our Alex cabin over a year ago and deliberately waited this long to write a review so that there was time to see how the product performed. Both the cabin and the Rystix coating are excellent. There has been no water incursion or water staining to the timber over winter and we really enjoy being able to work from home periodically in the cabin. Our friends are all really impressed with the quality of the cabin, as are we!

    Great product

    Published by Peter Riley on 19th Nov 2014

    So far I fully agree with you Rystix Timbacare is an excellent product and I wish I has come across it earlier - I would have used it on some other items in the garden from which some big name British timber products are now peeling off.

    I am so pleased with the Rystix and yes it's on!

    Published by James Boughton on 19th Nov 2014

    It took me two days for two coats all round but I think the sprayer saved half the time and gave better coverage. I can only describe it as a form of varnish finish but so easy to apply I would recommend it to anyone!
