A deep red colour that is steeped in history and tradition. The first recorded use of the colour in the UK was in 1523 but was used as far back as the 15th Century by the Aztecs and Mayans. It was a very popular red in Regency and Victorian times so had to have a place in the Heritage based Royal range.

Advice: It is recommended that 2 – 3 coats be applied. If 1 coat is to be applied for a translucent look, apply Royal Clear on top to produce a harder surface finish. Protek Royal is a high-build formulation so each extra coat increases the colour and sheen. If applying to bare timber a knotting agent should be used prior to application. When applied to floorboards a top coat of breathable polyurethane sealant or varnish should be applied to protect against heavy foot traffic.
This is a protective water-repellent coating. If your timber isn't treated with a preservative then depending on the type of wood and product, you may want to use our Wood Preserver

A 1 litre tin will cover approximately 8m2 depending on moisture content and porosity of the timber. It is recommended that 2 coats be applied with a 3rd coat if a deeper colour density is required. Royal Exterior Wood Finish is a high build formulation so each extra coat increases the colour and sheen. No primer or basecoat required. If applying to bare timber a knotting agent or stain blocking primer should be applied prior to Royal to prevent any possible resin bleed staining the coating
