Product Description

Architectural cladding is prone to rapid deterioration, colour loss, and silvering or greying. With its unique UV stabilising technology, Armourflex® Ultimate Cladding UV Protection Oil is a premium blend of natural oils, waxes, and resins that guards against weathering and UV damage that turns wood swollen, twisted, and grey. The finish also has active chemicals that help stop the formation of algae, fungus, and mould.

This oil is suitable for both softwood and hardwood, providing a water repellent finish that is resistant to flaking, cracking, blistering and peeling. ArmourFlex Protection Oil prevents cladding and external wood from needing repairs or replacement due to UV or water damage.

Use Barrettine Universal Wood Preserver as a priming before applying to unpreserved wood. This increases the cladding’s resistance to wood-boring insects and damp rot, hence extending its lifespan.

Apply Barrettine Wood Reviver before this cladding oil if the wood has already started to become grey due to UV exposure. As a result, the wood will regain its natural colour, and the oil will shield it from further fading and sun damage.

Application Conditions
Stir thoroughly with a flat-bladed paint stirrer before and during application, ensuring good ventilation (preferably apply outside). Protect areas not intended to be coated with impermeable sheeting/masking tape and if in doubt, confirm suitability before use.

The moisture content of the wood should not be above 20% and can be checked using a handheld moisture meter. The temperature during application and drying must be between 5-30°C, with no rain forecast within 12 hours. The relative humidity must be below 80% and ideally below 60%. If heavy rain has occurred recently, wait a minimum of 2 days for wood to thoroughly dry throughout. Application during cold or damp conditions will impact drying and may lead to a milky/hazy appearance as moisture becomes trapped in the finish.

Application Process
Apply 2-3 coats. Decant the product as needed and apply evenly using a high-quality brush and/or roller. The first coat can be applied generously until no further product will absorb into the wood. Subsequent coats should be applied sparingly. Beyond 2 coats, the gloss level will increase.

The first coat on bare/weathered wood will absorb far more product than subsequent coats. Product can be re-coated after approximately 4 hours but will require a minimum of 10 hours to develop maximum water repellence. Protect from rain/frost until dry, to avoid damp becoming trapped within the finish.

Coverage – approximately 15 – 20m² per litre, though this depends on the type of wood.

For full details of preparation based on the current state of the wood, please see the Technical Data Sheet.

Why does condensation form in my home?
Condensation forms more easily on cold surfaces in the home, for example walls and ceilings. In some cases, those surfaces can be made warmer by improving the thermal insulation. In many cases, thermal insulation is not possible due to house configuration or cost of refurbishment. An efficient way of combating condensation is to cover walls and ceilings with a specially formulated anti-condensation paint and TruTherm anti condensation paint has been formulated using the latest technology of additives.
