All timber requires cleaning, so to get the best out of your deck Quantum Timber Finishes has a range of products that work on both hardwoods and softwoods to enhance, protect and condition the timber. Quantum products work effectively because they penetrate into the wood fibres, forming a film in the wood instead of on the wood, maintaining the natural look of the timber and providing long lasting, water repellant, anti-fungal protection against splitting and rotting.
When utilising a timber finish, timber preparation is vitally important as contaminants can cancel out the effectiveness of a timber coating. All external timbers under 12 months old (not previously coated) require preparation with SapStrip to release the tannins and extractives. Old weathered and grey timbers require cleaning with Dex Prep.
Australian Hardwoods require specific attention, so always check the QTF website for the best advice on the cleaning and coating process. If in doubt always contact the manufacturer and check the website for information.
These are just some of the products available from Quantum Timber Finishes that will assist you in properly preparing your deck and guaranteeing you a long-lasting natural look for your timber.
