General Description:

Sunshield is a high quality wood coating which provides a beautiful natural appearance and outstanding protection for all exterior wood surfaces. Easy and simple to apply, ideal for homes, cottages, doors and similar applications for durability and weather-resistance. This product is not to be applied to walked on surfaces. (See Sunshield Deck and Fence Stain informaion) This product is available in clear as well as colours.

Outstanding Properties:

Sunshield is fortified with U.V. absorbers to protect the wood from harmful bleaching effects of ultra-violet rays from the sun and assuring that wood properly coated with Sunshield retains its original colour with as little maintenance as possible. This superior wood coaring is formulated to prevent flaking and discolouration of surfaces providing the application instructions are adheard to. Sunshield has extraordinary flexibility allowing the finish to expand and contract with the wood through extreme climate changes. The finish resists crackin, chipping and peeling.

Application:

Stir throughly before applying and every 15-20 minutes while applying. Sunshield can be applied in temperatures as low as 7°C (45°F). Exercise extreme care that the wood is absolutely dry before application. Apply generously to board ends to prevent moisture penetration. Apply 3 coats on initial application in the same year, allow 96 hours (4 days) drying time before applying the next coat.
For best results where any surface is exposed to maximum daytime sunlight we reccommend C-TONE (3 coats) on initial application. It should be noted that C-TONE will expose the natural warmth of the grain of the wood and although at first it appears slightly dark, will in time lighten due to increased U.V. exposure.
Sunshield should be brushed throughly into the surface. If rollers or spray guns are used in the application, Sunshield cannot gurantee the results. Sunshield is not recommended for floors, steps or walking surfaces. Sunshield may be applied over previously coated surfaces provided those surfaces are properly prepared, sanded or stripped as required. It should be noted that when the finish begins to slightly dull and loose its shine it is time to apply one good recoat. (This depends on the exposure to sunlight).
For clean up, use mineral spirits. If spills are allowed to dry, paint remover may be necessary to remove the product. If applying to smooth or sanded wood, please consult your dealer regarding potential mill glaze problems.

Coverage:

One (1) U.S. quart (946 mL) covers 95 sq ft. or 8 sq. metres. Rough wood coverage would be approximately 15% to 20% less coverage.

Sunshield Description:

Sunshield D.S.F. is a high quality, semi-transparent, water reducible stain which provides a beautiful and natural appearance to all varieties of wood. The D.S.F. product is soya-based, making this a true environmentally friendly product and one that is made from 100% renewable resources. The product is easy to apply and is well suited for decks, docks, patio furniture, siding and any type of exterior wood structures including pressure treated wood. It is guaranteed not to peel and extend the life of your deck or wood structure while maintaining the natural look of the wood grain.

Outstanding Properties:

Sunshield D.S.F. is fortified with U.V. absorbers to protect the wood from the harmful bleaching effects of ultra-violet rays from sunlight. The product penetrates deep into the wood without a membrane to allow for years of maintenance free beauty without peeling or blistering. Since it is a stain versus a coating, you are guaranteed NO PEELING, the wood colour will merely fade down naturally over time at your discretion (usually 1-4 years). There is no need to re-sand or strip the finish before reapplying, simply apply more product providing the wood is clean and free of dirt, mold or mildew and enjoy.

Sunshield Application:

All woods must be clean of any foreign material including paint, stain or varnish and should be stained on all sides, twice in the same season. Previously coated wood should be sanded or stripped before applying. If sanding, use between a 40 and 60 grit paper, do not use a belt sander. A mill glaze remover or sanding is recommended on new wood to allow product to penetrate. Please consult your dealer or Sunshield Products to discuss how mill glaze may be present on wood. As stated, two coats will give best results however a single coat may be applied but do expect to recoat more often, possibly every 1 to two years due to less protection from the elements. When applying second coat, wait until first coat is dry to the touch, this can vary from 6-24 hours depending on weather conditions. All Decks must be a minimum of 12 inches above ground, and be well ventilated underneath between the ground and deck. Do not apply in temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius. Stir well before and constantly while applying (approximately every 15 minutes). Product should be applied on surfaces that are dry to the touch, wood may be damp but not saturated. Product can be applied with brush, roller, or sprayer. If applying with sprayer or roller, backbrushing must be done to remove excess pooling of product. Certain woods such as cedar and pressure treated should be aged from 4-12 months prior to coating to allow some of the oils and chemicals to retreat, please consult Sunshield Products at 1-800-489-1477 if you require more information on this.

Coverage:

3.785 litres/1 U.S. Gallon will cover approximately 35 sq. meters (380 sq. ft.) on rough porous wood and 48 sq. meters (500 sq. ft) on smooth wood.

Maintenance:

To maintain original beauty and colour, rinse and clean off any surface dirt and apply fresh coat of Sunshield D.S.F. after a period of 1-4 years depending on wear and exposure to the elements. Sanding can be done to open up the wood pores but is not absolutely necessary.
