Pine tar is a dark, viscous organic liquid that is obtained from resinous pine stumps and the lower parts of stems. Pine tar is absorbed especially well into unplaned wood surfaces. It is recommended that pine tar is diluted with pine turpentine in order to accelerate its absorption rate and to avoid excessive sooting.
Areas of application: Used for tarring boats, wooden houses, and ropes. Tinting tar oil.
Ingredients: 100% pine tar
Colour: Dark brown
Pre-treatment: It is important that the wood material that is to be treated is dry, with a maximum wood moisture level that is below 21% and a relative air humidity that is below 80%. Clean any old treatable surfaces of any dirt, mould, and removable materials. Prime the surface with Ecobase.
Instructions for use: Apply the material in thin layers with a brush or piece of cloth onto the clean and dry wooden surface.
Drying time: Does not dry, but instead is absorbed into the wood, as a result of which the surface feels dry.
Cleaning equipment: Pine turpentine or spirit.
NB: Do not use white spirits!
