1US gallon covers approximately 200 square
feet; though this may vary with specie, porosity of wood; also dependent on the porosity of the wood, moisture content of the wood and depth of treatment desired. Apply by brush, roller or dipping. Drying time is minimum 24 hours before staining or painting.
At least two liberal applications by brush or roller should be applied to all sides of light duty lumber, such as (2x4)". Thicker lumber will require extra applications to ensure core treatment. At a later time, when the wood is in service, its protection can be refortified with more Conservat•r® Clear product. However if the wood has been stained, painted, or otherwise surface finished, it will be difficult to impossible for the Conservat•r® Clear product to penetrate into the wood. Therefore, make certain to treat your wood thoroughly and generously before finishing.
