Instructions

Step 1

Start by sanding your wooden shed with a 150/180 grit sandpaper. Make sure to wipe off any dirt, residue and resin between one board and another with a dusting brush and a dry cotton or microfiber cloth. 

Step 2

Now you need to use the IMV impregnating agent! This product, available in different colors, from gray to brown, protects well the wood surface, penetrating into its pores. Our tip: when opening the can, mix the product well for at least one minute to reduce its high density.

Step 3

The application of the IMV wax-like metallic water-based impregnating agent is a key step. Follow the wood grains along the boards, paying special attention to hidden parts and intersections. Once applied the first coat, wait at least 1-2 hours before proceeding with the second coat.
