Sydney Harbour’s Palm Beach Black is a water based, colorfast black stain for all timber types. Depending on application method used, Palm Beach Wash will produce a transparent effect to enhance the grain of timber, or a saturated, opaque effect. Made with highest quality UV resistant exterior grade pigments, Palm Beach Black delivers excellent water resistance and UV protection. The protective black pigments used in Palm Beach Wash have a reflective quality that when observed closely will resemble the satin-like gleam observed in charcoal.
Stir thoroughly prior to use.
FOR A TRANSLUCENT EFFECT: Apply 1 coat by brush, roller or spray, following the grain and ensuring even coverage. No longer than 3 minutes after application, wipe off excess paint with a soft, absorbent cloth so that the crevices and grain of the timber hold the color. If required apply a second coat to deepen the color, using the same method. Touch dry 30 minutes (using this method). Allow 4 hours dry time before applying second coat. Allow to dry 24 hours.
FOR AN OPAQUE EFFECT: Apply 1 coat by brush, roller or spray, following the grain and ensuring even coverage. Touch dry 1 hour (this method only). If required apply a
second coat to deepen the color. Allow 4 hours dry time before applying second coat. Allow to dry 24 hours. Application tip – can be diluted with water (up to 20%) for a lighter/weaker effect.
Approximately 600 to 800 sq. ft. per gallon, depending upon porosity, surface texture and wastage rates. Please note that on weathered or aged timber with an open grain or more absorbent surface, coverage may be decreased.
