If you plan to paint your house with Treatex, you must know how long the paint will take to dry. The duration of the paint depends on the type of wood and the weather conditions. It is essential to avoid using the paint in damp conditions. After applying the paint, it should be allowed to dry completely for 3-6 hours. If you want to add a second coat, you should do so within 24 hours. You can either use a brush or roller to apply the coating.
How Long Does Treatex Take to Dry?
When applying the Treatex Hardwax Oil, ensure the surface is as open as possible. The timber fibers will be more exposed if the finish is not perfectly smooth. A finishing of 100 grit on a Trio can help keep the timber fibers open and allow the finish to dry faster.
You can apply the second coat after the first coat dries, but it can take a while to dry completely. You can apply the second coat with a brush or a slow machine with a buff or white pad.
Regarding the application of hard wax oil, Treatex has developed a patented formula with sustainable raw materials, no preservatives, and an extra hardwearing finish. Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra is suitable for most types of wood, although you may need to thin it down a little if you are working with particularly dense/oily woods.
You can also apply a thin coat of Treatex wax polish to maintain a hard finish. A 2.5L Treatex Hardwax Oil Ultra is enough for up to 50m2 of the surface. If you apply two coats, you should leave a space between them.
