Forester
Description

Resene Forester is a semi-transparent film forming timber stain effect finish based on a tough 100% acrylic resin to ensure maximum durability in all exposed conditions. Imparts a natural low sheen look that is fully washable. Resene Forester is designed for application on primed substrates, pre-primed Shadowclad and when refurbishing previously painted substrates. The only exception is pre-primed Shadowclad which is primed with a specific colour primer and does not require the Resene Sonyx 101 basecoat.

Key Features
  • Excellent adhesion to primed wooden, cementitious and old paintwork substrates
  • Low sheen semi-transparent finish
Scope of Use
  • Pre-primed Shadowclad
  • Wood grain effect fibre cement
  • Repaints
  • Primed timber
  • Primed weatherboards
Limitations on Use
  • Use Resene Sonyx 101 tinted to the Forester basecoat colour before finishing with Resene Forester on all primed substrates and when refurbishing previously painted substrates. The only exception is pre-primed Shadowclad which is primed with a specific colour primer and does not require the Resene Sonyx 101 basecoat.
  • Resene Forester is not suitable for direct application over timber and other bare substrates. It is designed for use of primed substrates and particularly those with a wood grain effect.
  • Do not apply at temperatures below 10°C or when it is liable to drop below 10°C during the drying period.
