LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment is a penetrating wax sealant / preservative for bare timbers. May be used continuously as a Cost effective replenishment wax treatment, or, as a pre-treatment, and, will not "float - off" or break down readily. LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment enhances the natural grain and texture of timber, giving a 'light amber' tinge on application.
Ultra Violet ray stable, non-evaporating and impervious to moisture, LANOLENE ™ Organic Timber Treatment delivers outstanding service life and helps prevent cracking and warping, maintains and improves timbers original pliability. LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment contains Pyrethrum (naturally occurring organic pesticide) and Chilli Resin (natural biocide and preservative), giving resistance to termites, borers, and all timber hungry pests.
LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment is refined (Admiralty Grade) anhydrous Woolwax. A testament to timber performance can be observed by viewing any shearing shed floors, rubbing posts or wool sorting tables. Specified in Wooden shipbuilding for centuries.

MAINTAINS SUPPLENESS AND PLIABILITY
LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment, must be applied to timber totally dry and free of moisture. Remove any existing surface coatings prior to application. Softwoods, due to greater porosity, may require, further subsequent coats, than Hardwoods if used as a sole treatment. As "rule of thumb" view for desired result with each application. USE SPARINGLY and work in any excess with a clean dry cloth as you go. Always Test Patch prior to total application for assured satisfaction.
Use LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment for beams and liners exposed to weather and throughout construction. Application to wall and ceiling lining boards, before fixing, inproves dimensional stability by providing a moisture-repellent seal on unexposed surfaces which may endure dampness or condensation ie., bathroom, laundry and kitchen.
For newly dressed and sawn timber used for weatherboards, fascia, joinery, beams, decking, balustrades, pool decks and surrounds, gates, posts, fencing. Apply immediately or as soon as practically possible. Brush or Mop application to all faces with particular attention end grains. If timber is already fixed apply to all exposed surfaces.
LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment provides additional qualities to solvent-based wood stain products. Do Not apply timber stain immediately after LANOLENE™ as the grain will be sealed. Allow for weathering (6-8 weeks even exposure) or, after 10-12 weeks, lightly sand surfaces to be stained, breaking the seal and allowing penetration of the stain.
i) External dressed timbers, LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment extends service life of solvent-based
paint systems, also prevents penetration of moisture and fungus spores through joints and paint film imperfections.
Applied 6-8 weeks before painting, LANOLENE™ permits one-way breathing of timber, guarding against paint
bubbling and flailing exerted by pressure from moisture entrapped.
ii) Water based paint, acrylics and epoxy systems, will not adhere satisfactorily when applied immediately
over fresh LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment. Allow for weathering (6-8 weeks even exposure), sand surface
with a medium grit paper and wash over with turps. LANOLENE™ contains wax that must be removed with solvent
prior to use of water base, acrylic, or epoxy paints.
1. Various timber species may discolour should LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment be applied whilst timber
contains excessive moisture or if water contact occurs before complete curing. Always prepare a test patch sample for
satisfaction assurance prior to complete application.
2. Water-based, Acrylic and Epoxy paints should not be applied over LANOLENE™ treated surfaces, unless steps in
(PAINTING ii) are followed.
3. Water-based adhesives are not effective on LANOLENE™ Organic Timber Treatment saturated surfaces. Other
adhesives can be used after light sanding and cleaning area with mineral turpentine.
