- Preparation: Before applying Fiddes Barrier Seal, ensure that the surface is clean and free from any debris or contaminants. Stir the contents of the can thoroughly before and during use to ensure proper consistency.
- Application Method: Use a good quality bristle or synthetic brush to apply the Barrier Seal. Ensure that the room is warm and well-ventilated to facilitate drying. Apply the product evenly in the direction of the wood grain, ensuring complete coverage of the surface.
- Drying Time: Fiddes Barrier Seal has a quick drying time of approximately 15 minutes under ideal conditions. However, it is important to note that longer drying times may be required in cold, damp, or humid conditions. Allow the product to dry completely before proceeding with the application of the desired finish.
- Thinning: If necessary, Fiddes Barrier Seal can be thinned by 10-15% with Methylated Spirits. Thinning may be appropriate in certain situations to achieve the desired consistency or to facilitate application on specific surfaces. However, it is advisable to conduct a small test on a discreet area before thinning the product.
- Oily Timbers: For dense oily timbers, it is recommended to apply a maximum of one coat of Fiddes Barrier Seal. These types of surfaces may have a higher natural oil content, and excessive application of the Barrier Seal may not be necessary.
- Ensure that you pre-test Fiddes Barrier Seal on a small, inconspicuous area before applying it to the entire surface. This will allow you to assess the compatibility and the desired results.
- Fiddes Barrier Seal is specifically recommended for use on rustic and vintage flooring prior to applying Fiddes Hard Wax Oil, Clear Glaze, or Fiddes HPX Floor Lacquer. It serves as a protective layer and ensures optimal adhesion of the subsequent finish.
