Teak Patinizer does not turn the light brown teak into silver-grey teak immediately. The Teak Patinizer slows down the colour change process. When teak turns silver-grey because of the UV sunlight, it then remains silver-grey for a very long time. Teak Patinizer helps to prevent teak furniture from turning from the silver- grey to the dark grey/green which can be a sign of fungus build up.
Leave your furniture outside for 4 to 8 weeks, so that it becomes a slightly pale yellow colour. Apply Teak Patinizer according to the directions on the packaging.
The teak furniture should be cleaned with Golden Teak Cleaner. This will remove the deposits from the teak and returns the wood to the original pale brown colour. Follow this with a treatment of Golden Teak Patinizer.
Teak Patinizer has low acid content that does not affect aluminum, brass or sling.
Patinizer may affect grass, plants and some types of pavements. We recommend covering the work area with a disposable piece of plastic.
Teak Patinizer is not hazardous. Since it is water-based, it is environmentally friendly product and 100% biodegradable. However, we do recommend avoiding eye and skin contact and using it in a well-ventilated area.
Ensure that the teak is 100% dry. Apply a layer of Teak Patinizer using a soft lint-free cloth, and allow it to penetrate into the wood. Allow it to dry for 4 hours and apply a second coat. Allow the furniture to dry for 24 hours before exposing it to weather conditions.
Treating your furniture with Teak Patinizer once a year is usually sufficient. Extreme green deposit can occur under some conditions, such as exposure to long periods of damp. In this case, it is advisable to apply Teak Patinizer twice a year.
Teak Patinizer does not contain pigments, so the product is transparent. While Protector will leave a protective layer in the wood, the resin particles of the Patinizer do not form a film in the wood, but will adhere onto the wood- molecules rejecting moisture and dirt, so no mildew growth will occur. This results in a beautiful silver-grey patina.
This is not recommended.
This is not possible because Teak Patinizer does not allow the Teak Protector to soak into the wood.
Please note: If furniture has been treated / painted, we will repair rather than replace any damage.
