Limitations on Use
  • Do not apply at temperatures below 10°C or when it is liable to drop below 10°C during the drying period.
  • Will not block active stains, the source of the stain must be removed.
  • Not weather resistant as a standalone coating. Must be overcoated with durable waterborne topcoats.
  • Not recommended for green concrete, seal with Resene Limelock (see Data Sheet D809) before applying Resene StainLock.
  • Exterior exposed tannin rich timbers including cedar, which will cycle through wet and dry conditions, produce fresh stains. As StainLock cannot overcome active stains, Resene Wood Primer (see Data Sheet D40) is recommended to hold back staining when light colours are used over exterior exposed tannin rich timbers.
