Protek Decking Stain

Protek Decking Stain Guidelines

Many years of research have gone into producing Protek’s range of water based products to where the company is now acknowledged to be the market leader amongst sawmills, fence panel and shed manufacturers.

While their competitors have sought the perfect timber treatment amongst the vast range of chemicals available, Protek has been dedicated to a water based solution. The biocide is unique to them. Only top quality ingredients are used. When comparing prices with other timber treatments please remember to take into account performance and specification. It would be tempting and easy to leave out some ingredients to achieve a cheaper product but that is not Protek’s way.

Protek’s water based timber treatments have been designed to be:-

Economical to use

Non toxic and non pollutant

Harmless to pets and plants

Biodegradable in the soil

Low odour and user friendly

Excellent in penetration and dispersal through the fibres

Once dry further applications can only enrich the colour

16 colours and a Tough Clear Coat.

Application Guide

Coverage per litre is approximately 8m2 on rough sawn bare timber. A second coat will require a lesser amount. Before applying these products you must ensure that all surfaces to be treated are clean, dry and free of mud, ice and bark. The Decking stain should be used on pre-treated wood which has had a coat of at least a good water based preservative.


Clean weathered and dirty wood using water, detergent and a stiff brush

Allow to dry fully before applying a first coat

Allow 4-6hours drying time between coats

Any previous treatments must be allowed to weather before applying a new product

Some planed surfaces may require a light sanding before applying the first coat.
