Interior Timber

Having timber inside your home can have a great statement. So here we look at some different treatments to keep them looking beautiful:

  1. New: – Sand wood with a 100 grid sandpaper in the direction of the wood grain. Remove dust with a damp cloth and apply three coats of a recommended Varnish or Sealer. When wanting to paint the wood white or a colour, apply one coat Panache wood primer followed by two coats Panache water or solvent based Polyglo for a semi gloss finish. If requiring a gloss finish, apply two coats Panache water or solvent based High gloss Enamel.

 

  1. Previously Painted or treated and sound :  

Painted – Sand smooth with 100 grid sand paper in the direction of the wood. Remove dust with a damp cloth and apply one coat Panache Universal Undercoat and two coats Panache water or solvent base Polyglo for a semi gloss finish. If requiring a gloss finish apply two coats Panache water or solvent base High gloss enamel.

Treated – When a sealer was used, wipe surface with a mineral turpentine cloth and apply two coats of sealer again. If Varnished, sand lightly with 100 grid sandpaper in the direction of the wood grain and apply two coats of Varnish again.

 

  1. Flaking / Cracking – Remove coating with a paint stripper, use steel wool and clean water to remove residue. Apply three coats recommended Varnish or sealer. If wanting to paint the wood in a colour, apply one coat Panache Universal undercoat and two coats Panache Polyglo water or solvent base for a semi gloss finish. If you require a gloss finish apply two coats Panache water or solvent base High gloss Enamel.

 

Happy Painting!
