This is by far the worst product to coat exterior finishes such as kwila posts and rafters and merbau facade.

published

Not suitable for external use at all.
Yellows within months. Have done it twice now first by professional painter then sanded back to bare and done again only for it to yellow within 2 months again. Will never use it again jas cost me a lot of time and money for a terrible end result

Purchased at Bunnings Warehouse for A$170.00.

Intergrain Ultraclear Exterior and Bamboo Ply

published

We have done many real time tests of exterior finishes that we would be happy to recommend to customers for use in wet conditions, or exposure to the weather, applied to our bamboo ply. Intergrain Ultraclear Exterior really does the trick.

Purchased in March 2020.

Is this as good as it gets?

published

3 coats of Integrain exterior window paint 18 months ago on new vic ash windows -merbeau sills peeling after about 12 months and some down to the wood now. Sure, our spot is windy and exposed in bad weather but surely this is not as good as it gets.

It dosnt work

published

We had brand new cedar windows & painted 4 coats, it didn't last 3 months in winter, this product was highly recommended by a Paintright store, after going back to the store the after sales service was poor, both the store & manufacturer didn't want to know about us. this product doesn't work outdoors. I now have hours of work to sand back windows & doors & start again

Don't use on Exposed wood

published

We had new cedar windows coated with this - 3 coats - in full sun was hopeless - looked weathered within 2 months and was pealing off after summer. This product is of no use in full sun. Had to have all wood sanded back to bare and have used Sikkens system (as recommended by every trades person who saw the original mess!)

Can't stand up to Australian sun

Please don't. It is not suitable. If it is exterior furniture, use Ultradeck Timber Oil. If it is interior use the Ultraclear Interior.

For children's toys I would suggest Livos Kunos universal oil. Completely food safe. Another suggestion: Cabots benchtop clear; also certified food safe. Especially for teething infants!

I have a Kwila timber deck (mix of exposed and covered) With several coats of Ultra Deck That are 2 years old. Can I cover it with Ultra Clear to get a more glossy and durable cover?

Hi Lindsay thanks for reaching out, UltraClear Exterior is not suitable for walk on surfaces so we wouldn't recommend over coating your deck with it! Just clean with an oxalic acid cleaner and refresh with a new coat or two of Intergrain UltraDeck.

Thanks for that. My Ultra Deck finish remains tacky for several weeks and always seems dirty or dusty with no gloss finish. Is there something I can do to make it look a bit more gloss and lift the finish? I am in Townsville, dry tropics.

Hi Lindsay, if it is still tacky there may be an issue preventing the coating from fully curing. Often it's because coats were applied thick or too soon after each other, if you have some left over product our first recommendation is to clean with UltraPrep Timber Cleaner again and apply a very thin coat of UltraDeck to restart the curing process (it should only take 7 days to stop being tacky in ideal conditions). I would recommend giving our technical team a call on 1800 630 285 so that they could ask you a few questions to be sure this is the right way forward for your project.
