BRODA ® PRO-TEK-TOR Siding–Log–Timber (SLT) Natural Oil Wood Finish is a water borne, natural oil, penetrating wood finish. It can be applied on dry or unseasoned wood with up to a 30% moisture level. Broda SLT offers excellent mildew resistance, UV protection and water repellency. Use on vertical and protected wood surfaces, like siding, wall shingles, log walls, timber frames, soffiting, and trim. PRO-TEK-TOR SLT enhances the natural beauty of wood and imparts an oiled appearance. When applied correctly it will not peel, crack or blister.

Coverage: Rough surfaces: 150 - 300 sq. ft. / gallon / coat. Sanded, smooth surfaces: 250 - 400 sq. ft. / gallon / coat. Coverage will depend on wod species, texture and/or porosity.

Tools & Equipment You Will Need, BRODA® PRO-TEK-TOR SLT
Brush: Use a natural bristle brush (ie. Corona Oil-Stain-It) a or an applicator pad. No reduction necessary.
Roller: Use a 10mm – 20mm roller cover.
Spray-Airless: Pressure: 2000 psi Tip:  .013 -- .015 
Spray-HVLP: Tip: Standard needle
Depending on the job, a power washer, a grinder and a good quality sander may also be required. Tape, tarps, trays and some rags will always come in handy.


Preparing The Surface for BRODA® Coatings
Remove all existing paints, coatings, mildew, wax, oil, dirt and deteriorated substrate. 
(Replace all deteriorated substrate as required)
Rough Wood Surfaces:  Power wash at 500 psi.
Smooth Wood Surfaces:  Sand to 80 grit. 
New wood: Remove all mill glaze. (the glossy surface on planed or new lumber surfaces)
Pressure Treated Wood:  Test the absorbency of the wood by sprinkling water on the surface. If the water penetrates into the wood quickly, the wood is ready to finish. If the water beads up or does not penetrate, allow the wood to weather and test for absorbency again. Do not sand pressure treated lumber. Due to the green or brown tone of many brands of pressure treated lumber, the colour of the BRODA ® PRO-TEK-TOR SLT may look different from the colour selected. Always test for colour and appearance in an inconspicuous area.
Previously Stained Wood: BRODA ® PRO-TEK-TOR SLT may be applied over existing well weathered semi-transparent stains, however, the colour of the existing stain may be visible through this finish. Remove all surface contamination by sanding, power washing or with a wood cleaning/restoration product.

Removing Mildew: If after cleaning, the surface appears dirty, suspect mildew. Remove mildew before painting with a solution of 1 pint bleach and 1 gallon water. Apply the solution and scrub the area. Allow bleach solution to remain on the surface for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water until there is no bleach odor. Apply diluted acid based wood cleaner to neutralize bleach. Rinse well until sudsing no longer persists. Wear protective eyewear, rubber gloves, and
protective clothing. Quickly wash off any of the cleaning solutions which come in contact with your skin. Do not add detergents or ammonia to the bleach/water solution. Apply appropriate patching and filling materials to cracks, nail holes
and other surface imperfections. Filled areas may take BRODA ® PRO-TEK-TOR SLT differently than bare wood. Do not get caulk or primer on areas to receive BRODA ® PRO-TEK-TOR SLT. (BRODA ® PRO-TEK-TOR SLT will appear different over caulk or primer.) Optimum wood surface pH is slightly alkaline. 

Restoring Weathered Wood
To clean and brighten weathered wood, we recommend using X180 Weathered Wood Restorer. Once you have power washed the surface, apply the X180 as per manufacturer's directions. Make sure all landscaping and surfaces you DON’T want restored are covered with tarps top protect from overspray. Do not apply in direct sunlight or when it is too hot out, because the X180 will only work when it is wet.
Let it sit for about an hour or so, then rinse well. There must be no soap bubbles in the water when all the X180 is rinsed off. Let surface dry to slightly damp.

Applying BRODA® PRO-TEK-TOR SLT is easy, but you want to make sure it’s well mixed first. Open the can and use a stir stick to loosen up the pigment. Pour into another container and scrape any remaining pigment off the bottom of the original container.

Keep mixing back and forth until you’re sure you’ve got all of the pigment mixed in. Intermix same colours from the same job together.

Apply 1st coat of Broda SLT as a heavy coat and work into the wood surface until
recommended coverage is achieved. Spread any puddles or runs.

If the wood surface is warm to the touch, dilute Broda SLT up to 10% with cold water or dampen the wood surface prior to application.

Apply 2nd coat of Broda SLT after first coat has dried for the recoat period recommended above. Fully saturate the wood surface and achieve the recommended coverage. Spread any puddles and runs. Apply third coat of Broda SLT after the 2nd coat has dried for the recoat period recommended above. Apply as an even application. Spread any puddles or runs.
Important: Do not apply in direct sunlight. Apply from bottom to top of project. Apply up and down on vertical siding and posts.
Apply side to side on horizontal siding and logs.
Drying Time @ 50% Relative Humidity: 
Touch:  @5C : 8 hours  @12C: 5 hours  @20C: 2 hours
Recoat:  @5C:  48 hours  @12C: 24 hours  @20C: 12 hours
Temperature and humidity dependent. Air and surface temperature should not drop below 1C for 48 hours after application.
Coats: 2 coats of tinted SLT  followed by 1 coat of SLT or SLT+ Clear UV Top Coat 
are necessary to achieve the selected colour.

Cleaning Up with BRODA® Coatings
Clean spills and spatters immediately with soap and warm water. Clean hands and tools immediately after use with soap and warm water.  After cleaning, flush spray equipment with mineral spirits to prevent rusting of the equipment if  recommended by the manufacturer. Follow manufacturer’s safety recommendations when using mineral spirits. 
If you’ve been staining all day, it’s probably a good idea to clean yourself up, too. Again, soap and water is best.
