Surface Preparation:

Surfaces must be sound, clean and dry before coating. Timber must have a moisture content of less than 18%. Existing paint coating must be fully removed back to clean, bare timber.

Previously stained timber should have any loose flaky material removed and then the surfaces lightly sanded in the direction of the grain.

Moss, mould and algae should be treated with a Moss & Algae Cleaner, the growths removed and the timber allowed to dry. Clean all surfaces of timber with methylated spirit.

Some timbers contain extractives that can bleed through coatings; a trial application is recommended. Resinous deposits should be scraped off and cleaned with methylated spirits.

Do not use knotting solutions, allow knots to “bleed out” through the coating and remove resin with a scraper when necessary.

Non-durable external timber should be treated with a Timber Preservative.

Application Method:

Stir well before use. Do not use straight from the container, decant a small amount into a suitable receptacle, do not put back part used material into the can.

Sovereign SX70 Wood Stain is designed to be applied to bare timber or existing wood stains.

A minimum of two coats must be applied.

Apply using a high quality wood stain brush, working in the direction of the grain using the minimum number of brush strokes.

On new work the first coat should be applied to all sides prior to assembly. End grains should be sealed and the backs of beads and rebates coated and special attention should be given to the tops and bottoms of doors and the underside of sills. Metal fixing must be suitable for external use i.e. stainless steel or galvanised.

Nails holes should be filled with Wood Filler.

Apply the second coat as soon as the first has thoroughly dried, around 24 hours in good conditions.

Third and subsequent coats can be applied if a deeper colour or greater protection is required.

Do not apply in temperatures below 10°C, in damp conditions or when rain is imminent.

Drying Time:

Typically touch dry in 3 - 4 hours and hard dry overnight.


Sanded Pine typically 10-12m² per litre per coat. Figures for sawn softwood timber will be lower. Hardwood coverage rates may be slightly higher.


Timber should be inspected regularly to ensure integrity of coating. When recoating becomes necessary thoroughly clean and dry the surface and apply one or two coats of SX70 Wood Stain.


Due to the natural variance in timbers it is essential that the user prepare the timber in the correct manner. Some timber can exude either solvent soluble resins or water soluble tannins that may stain any subsequent coating.

If in doubt a test should be carried out. This is especially the case when using white coatings.
