Note: Actual representation of the colour may vary depending on specie, coats applied and application method. Please use the above as a reference only. For custom colour options, samples, and help in choosing the right colour for your project please contact the JSC team.


Drying times and coverage rates may vary due to a variety of factors such as seasonal temperature, timber porosity, moisture content (below 18% required), the timber type, and previous coats applied.

Application Rate Recommendation:

  • New band sawn timber: approx. 8-12 square metres per litre.
  • Restored band sawn timber and wooden roof shingles: approx. 6-8 square metres per litre.

Avoid applying excess product to the surface as it will not dry. To deliver the optimum quantity, we recommend a trial application on offcuts prior to undertaking the actual coating
