Versatile wood protection from Sadolin Classic

Sadolin Classic All Purpose Woodstain is one of our most versatile woodcare products. Did you know it can be used to protect and enhance exterior and interior wood and that it works equally well on its own or as a basecoat? Here’s how!

Using Sadolin Classic on its own to protect garden furniture and to colour large surface areas

Sadolin Classic has been formulated to absorb deep into the timber to provide exceptional and long-lasting protection from the elements.

On its own it can be used to protect exterior wood surfaces including decking, fencing, cladding, sheds, fascias, garden furniture and garden buildings. Applying two coats creates an effective barrier from rain, hail or snow as well as providing resistance to the harmful effects of UV light which can denature the wood and fade the coating colour.

Its microporous formulation ensures that any natural moisture in the timber will pass through the surface. It is also designed to flex with the wood as it expands and contracts with the seasons so it will not flake or peel, whatever the weather.

As a base coat combined with Sadolin Extra for windows and doors

As Sadolin Classic is a deeply penetrative coating it also makes the perfect basecoat. Used in this way, it’s ideal for new doors and windows, timber flooring or interior furniture. The Sadolin Classic basecoat can then subsequently be overcoated with Sadolin Extra or any of the clear interior or exterior varnishes or woodstains within the Sadolin range to provide an extremely durable surface.

Just like the rest of the range, Sadolin Classic will weather naturally so future maintenance coats can be applied directly with minimal sanding back and preparation required first.
