Product Description

Cutek LowVOC is your answer to the search for an environmentally friendly protector for wood. It looks and performs the same as Cutek CD50, but has a lower volatile organic compound (VOC) content, meaning it’s your choice for achieving a green star project
The main function of Cutek LowVOC is to minimise warping, cupping and splitting, which means exterior wood lasts longer. Choose a colourtone for added UV protection and a warm natural finish.
Cutek LowVOC is NOT suitable for use on bamboo or acetylated wood.

Resources

Preparation

In order for Cutek LowVOC to function properly it’s essential that it diffuses deeply into the timber. Anything that might prevent penetration such as an existing coating, retained moisture, or not leaving sufficient time between coats must be avoided or corrected before applying. Preparation may involve thorough sanding or stripping to completely remove any previous film forming coating. If stripping is required, we recommend using Cutek CD33 Naked and Cutek Proclean to prepare the surface for Cutek oils. Before using Cutek LowVOC, it is vital to ensure the wood is clean, dry (moisture content less than 17%) and has no existing paint, oil or stain. Always remember that unless you want a clear finish that will lighten/silver off in a few months, it is important to mix a Cutek Colourtone into the oil before use. Make sure you prepare your timber before applying Cutek LowVOC in order to get the best results.

Application

Before you get started Before you begin, note the hazards and precautions on this website and the can labelling, and ensure that you use the correct safety equipment as detailed in the Safety Data Sheet. Step by step application process Avoid contact with plants, shrubs, trees and waterways. For best results, one coat of Cutek LowVOC should be applied to all faces of the wood prior to installing, with a second coat applied to the top surface once the first coat is completely dry. Penetration time varies significantly, depending on species, temperature, porosity, and moisture content of the wood. Thicker sections such as post, beams and logs will require additional coats, as Cutek LowVOC has a cumulative effect in the wood. Apply each coat evenly with brush, paintpad or roller. When using Cutek Colourtone it is essential that the container holding the oil be stirred frequently both before and during use. Two or three thin coats on finished wood and hardwoods are better that one or two thick coats. Wood must feel completely dry and non-greasy before application of the second coat.
