Description

Clear

Protek Royal Exterior in Clear is always popular because customers purchasing a timber garden product quite rightly want to show off how beautiful natural timber can be. The completely translucent finish of Clear treatment means that excellent levels of protection will be added to your timber without taking anything away from the natural, wood look. It also adds a sheen effect to the surface that is particularly attractive. Alternatively, Royal Exterior Clear is very popular as a “top coat.”

Many customers choose a shade of Protek for their garden products and love how the treatment looks when painted in one or two coats as opposed to the denser colouring of a third coat. This is where Clear comes in. With Protek Royal Exterior Clear, you can enjoy the high level of protection that is provided by three coats of treatment without affecting the colour finish that you are happy with. This also serves to provide that harder, “sheen” surface finish that always proves popular with customers.

Because it is completely translucent, we have seen Protek Royal Exterior Clear used on just about every type of timber product going. Customers who have wanted to showcase the attractive wood finish of their summerhouses, log cabins, garden furniture and even fencing have all opted for Clear treatment to provide them with superb protection from rot, weathering and excellent water resistance. Equally, we often hear from customers who were so pleased with the look of their products when painted in one or two coats of a colour or natural stain treatment that they do not want to add a third coat. These customers often choose to buy Clear treatment as well so they can give their timber the added protection of a third layer and an attractive, sheen finish.

Protek comes highly recommended by a number of leading manufacturers of timber garden products. What’s more, we’re so confident in Protek at elbec that every wooden building at our showsite in Nottingham is treated with a product from the Protek range. Come and see the quality for yourself!

Features

Protek Royal Exterior provides a rich, long-lasting colour while still allowing the qualities of the timber and the natural beauty of the wood grain to show through. It is ideal for hardwood or softwood and will last for anywhere between two and five years, depending on levels of wear and tear or exposure to the elements. Royal Exterior penetrates the top layers of your timber and creates a coating on the surface. It is also a joinery grade treatment which gets into all the joins and cracks of your timber to offer maximum protection. By treating your timber with Protek, you get an excellent level of water resistance as well as superb protection from mould, rot, fungus and weathering. The weatherproof layer that Protek paint forms even works on horizontal surfaces, unlike cheaper alternatives.

Treated wood also benefits from UV protection as the resins and acrylics filter UV and slow down the effects of colour fading. While providing this excellent protection, Protek creates a microporous coating, which allows the timber to breathe; this is essential for the longevity of your treated wood. When dry, it forms a hard, durable surface. Besides the excellent protection this offers your timber, it also ensures that no colouring will rub off onto your clothes, for example, unlike alternative treatments on the market. Our wood stains are also designed to be flexible and move with timber as it expands and contracts with the seasons.

Protek Royal Exterior is a water-based treatment. This gives it a number of advantages over other types of treatment. Because water is the “carrier” in Protek, this means that when the paint dries it is water that evaporates, not an oil or white spirit. This gives Protek a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) rating and a low odour. Protek also use a biodegradable fungicide to minimise the impact of its products on the environment. On top of this, Protek Royal Exterior complies with EN71 parts 2 and 3 relating to child toy safety and flammability. For all these reasons, Protek Royal Exterior has been deemed suitable for use around pets, plants and children, provided a period of 24 hours for the treatment to completely dry is allowed before allowing contact with animals or soil. It will, however, be touch dry within two hours in normal weather conditions.

About Protek

Protek is a family run business that was established in the 1980s. They manufacture a range of high-quality wood stains, decorative timber coatings and preservatives. They design treatments that are effective and long lasting with the aim of protecting the user, their timber products and the environment. They use only water-based treatments as they are generally the most environmentally friendly. All of their products are manufactured at their factory in the UK and they are continually striving to improve the efficiency of their processes and environmental credentials.

Important Note on Colour

Although the colour we show with each product is as close as possible to how it will look when painted on timber, there will be variations in colour interpretation on different screens (computer screens, tablet devices, mobile phones etc.) and printing processes may slightly alter the colours. Because of this, the colour you see on your screen, or even if you print out our product information page, may vary from how the colour of the treatment appears in reality. Final colour, when painted, may also be affected by the timber that your paint is applied to (pale softwood as opposed to dark hardwood, for example) and could be affected if you are over-coating previous treatments. If you have any doubts, sample pots are available or you can visit elbec’s showsite where we can show you samples of the whole colour range applied to wooden swatches.

Tips for use

Protek products have an “in the can” shelf life of two years if they are stored sealed and protected from frost. If stored for an extended period, pigments and raw materials may settle. By thoroughly stirring the paint, performance will not be affected if your treatment has been stored correctly.

As with many wood treatments, it is strongly recommended that they are applied in good weather, ideally at a time when no rainfall is forecast for around 48 hours after application. It should also be applied in temperatures higher than 8 degrees Celsius.

Its self-priming properties mean no extra purchases are required to get started with painting. However, when applying to bare timber, it is recommended that you apply a knotting agent or stain blocking primer (preferably both) prior to use to help prevent resin “bleeding” through the paint.

Especially with lighter treatment shades, it is strongly recommended that you take advantage of Protek’s range of wood preparation products. Without appropriate care before painting, lighter colours in particular are prone to discolouring due to tannin bleed from the wood, a natural but avoidable problem if the right steps are taken. For the best results, customers should use Protek’s Wood Preserver or Wood Preserver Plus in conjunction with Stain Blocking Primer before applying Protek.

Protek Royal Exterior meets safety and environmental standards that make it safe to use around children, pets and plants. However, you should wait 24 hours before allowing pets, soil or children to come into contact with anything that has been painted as a precaution.  

Royal Exterior works most effectively on a two coat application basis. On some rough sawn timber, one coat may suffice, but if you are treating a garden building (such as a shed, summerhouse or log cabin) you should always apply at least two coats. This will ensure optimal waterproofing.

Protek Royal Exterior is “touch dry” within 2 hours in normal conditions. You should wait at least this long after each coat before applying any further coats of paint.

You may wish to apply a third coat to enhance the solidity and depth of the colour, but this is a matter of personal preference. Please be aware that more than three coats may de-stabilise the coating. This is because coats will start sticking to each other, rather than the timber, and this could result in premature peeling.

Each colour gives a “satin” effect as the paint is translucent, allowing the wood grain to show through. The sheen will increase with further coats.

Protek can be used to paint over old treatments, even if they were spirit based or creosote. This coating should be well weathered and the surface onto which you are painting should be clean. For Royal Exterior to work at its best, it is advised that old coatings are sanded back to the bare wood prior to the application of new treatment.

Protek Royal Exterior can be applied using a brush, a roller or a low pressure spray gun. You should clean anything you used to apply the treatment thoroughly afterwards if you wish to make use of it again in the future. Although Royal Exterior is easy to apply, it is a premium treatment; so for best results, customers should use high quality application products (decorator’s standard brushes for example) or consider asking someone with decorating experience for advice.

When deciding how much treatment you will need, you should bear in mind that 1 litre of Protek will cover between 6m2 and10m2 of timber. Through elbec, you can make excellent savings when buying additional quantities if you are treating a larger area.

We recommend that you reapply Protek every 2-3 years depending on the level of wear and tear, or in line with the care instructions given by the manufacturer of the product you are treating. Customers should always make sure to familiarise themselves with the care instructions of their timber products because it can sometimes invalidate a manufacturer’s guarantee if they are not adhered to.

A popular choice, if customers would like the lighter colour of a single coat but with the added protection of 2 or 3 coats, is to apply a single coat of your chosen colour and then apply Royal Exterior’s “Clear” wood stain on top. This should help you to achieve the desired effect.
