SITE CARE AND STORAGE OF FACTORY FINISHED JOINERY
Joinery protected by PDS factory finishing systems is water repellent, sufficiently flexible to expand and contract with the natural movement of timber, and micro porous, to allow the natural transfer of moisture vapour between the Joinery and atmosphere.
Whilst protecting factory finished components from mechanical damage is well recognised, it is also important to ensure that basic precautions are taken to prevent excessive changes in the moisture content of the timber. These can cause swelling or shrinking of components, and blistering or localised failure of the surface coating.
RECOMMENDED GOOD PRACTICE
FIRST SUBSEQUENT RE-DECORATION
All areas to be recoated should be washed down with a mild detergent solution & rinsed with clean water to remove dust, insects and other contaminants, which can form a base or algae and fungi growth.
Where the coating system is intact but requires a cosmetic coat, the following procedure should be followed
Using a good quality Synthetic brush, designed for use with acrylic paints, apply one or two coats of Aquatop 2600 in the appropriate shade, colour & gloss level. Allow to dry for four hours between coats.
Where minor flaking affects small areas of the topcoat surface but the timber substrate is not exposed, the following procedure should be followed.
Abrade the damaged area with a fine grade abrasive paper to remove all unsound coating and feather out.
Clean down and wash the abraded area to remove dust, and allow to thoroughly dry. Using a good quality synthetic brush, designed for use with acrylic paints, apply a coat of Aquatop 2600 in the appropriate shade, colour & gloss level to the damaged area.
Allow to dry for four hours & then apply a second coat.
If the damaged area is widespread, it is recommended that the whole frame is lightly abraded and repaired as described above with the second coat applied to the complete frame.
