When do I re-coat my timber?
Have you purchased any of our Astra Street Furniture pieces with merbau hardwood slats and wondering when you will need to re-coat them?
We can go through when and how this needs to be done in a few simple steps!
It is an easy and simple process to protecting and refurbishing your merbau slats. We recommend you re-coat your merbau slats every 3-6 months. This will ensure prolonged protection from moisture and reduce cupping, warping and splitting of the timber. All your merbau slatted Astra furniture is given 2 coats of Cutek CD50 before it leaves our factory, so we have given you a head start!
Now, how exactly do you re-coat your timber? Follow these easy steps! (or download a copy of our furniture care & maintenance guide here)
- Brush down your furniture item to make sure it is free of any dust or other unwanted scraps or waste.
- With a 100% cotton cloth and using the same Cutek CD50 oil, lightly damp the cloth with the oil.
- Then simply wipe the oil into the hardwood, following the grain of the timber.
