Cabot's Exterior Clear Gloss Spraypack 300g
Excellent self-levelling, slow drying oil based polyurethane in a can. brilliant gloss. very low odour. I would highly recommend this product but the buyer should be mindful of a few things.
On occasion, as I am spraying my project, small dark sugar grain sized pieces of product settle on the surface. I am not sure why that is, i did shake the can thoroughly for 5 minutes. The surface is definitely clean. After a while, these pieces settle out and become flattened but enlargened in diameter, causing small dark circles to appear as patches a...gainst an otherwise clear surface. I found this stuff needs to be applied HEAVILY - do not spray continuously - hold off every 3-4 seconds and shake the can in between squirts. In future i will be choosing a different application method. Maybe from a drum, thinned and applied with a foam roller. The nozzles are cheap and things like this happen. Although if you can apply this stuff patiently and delicately, it's worth the buy.
Questions & Answers
painting cane chairs on rainy days In a closed in shed is this advisable
Hi there Terry,
Keeping the Chairs in a shed while they are drying should be fine. If the temperature drops below 10 degrees or exceed 35 degrees - we recommend holding off from coating.
If it is raining, there may be a chance that the humidity is high, which can elongate the dry times.
However - the Exterior Clear is not a suitable coating for furniture - please give us a call on 1800 011 006 so we can help you choose a more suitable coating.

Hi I have used the exterior clear satin on a beech timber. I have applied 3 coats and it feels rough in a few small areas. Should I use some fine steel wool to smooth them over?
We do recommend giving the coating a light sand with a fine grit sandpaper in between coats to remove any grain rise – this will help give you a nice smooth, even finish.
To help fix this, give the timber a light sand and remove any sanding dust. Give the timber one last thin coat and it should look as good as new!

in future, it may serve you well to work the timber prior to applying any kind of product. using a water bottle, spray water liberally across the wood surface and let dry. Doing so will raise the grain and any splinters. then lightly sand over the area with 600-800grit. clean thoroughly and then apply your product . Ideally you should not be working to the fix grain raise after product is applied.
