Rystix Exterior Sealer is a unique hybrid between a penetrating oil and a film building product providing ultra long protection to all exterior timbers. The sealer obtains a deep penetration into the timber which is the key into the timber and the foundation for the film building process. This unique ability enables long term treatment solutions for stable homogenous hardwoods including Teak and Ipé as well as all softwoods including Western Red Cedar used extensively in the cladding industry. Rystix Exterior Sealer’s ability to provide an effective coating to these timbers with high natural oil content will only serve to emphasize its superior performance ability on other hard and softwood timbers.
Superior quality Exterior Sealer looks like a varnish but does not behave like a varnish. A long oil alkyd resin base provides the product with tremendous flexibility to expand and contract and the sealer will therefore not peel or flake. It has an exceptionally high degree of UV resistance and special agents to prevent dry rot, insect and fungal attack. Exterior Sealer has proven capability and durability in all climatic environments. Where product lifespan is likely to be determined by weathering rather than physical abrasion then the choice should be to use Exterior Sealer.
This product can be used to treat all timber types and application purposes include cladding, log-cabins, general outdoor wooden furniture, windows and doors, fencing, fascias, sheds and decking. In a decking situation which is subject to high traffic volumes the special hardening additive should be used in conjunction with the sealer to provide greater wear and abrasion resistance (see Armadek for alternative).
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 or mineral turpentine 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.
