The Siding Saturator SB600 is ideal for the protection and embellishment of all vertical outdoor wooden surfaces (cladding, shutters, gates, pergolas, fences, joinery, etc.). It impregnates the wood (Larch, Red Cedar, Douglas Fir, ...), protects it from UV radiation, weathering and greying, and adds colour to the wood tones. Available in 1, 2, 5 or 10L and in several shades.
Easy to apply, the Siding Saturator SB600 impregnates the surface of the wood and protects it effectively against climatic aggressions (UV, bad weather). Non-film-forming and non-scaling, this wood siding saturator allows easy maintenance of exterior vertical supports (siding, shutters, gates, fences, etc.). It is ideal for cladding, gates, pergolas, shutters or fences made of Coniferous wood (Douglas, Larch, Pine, Spruce, Red Cedar, etc.), Hardwoods (Chestnut, Oak, etc.), Autoclaved wood (all species) or Thermo-heated wood.
Caution: the "Colourless (pigment-free)" version does not contain any pigments and provides less UV protection than the tinted versions. The maintenance required to protect a wood siding may be more frequent. This version is suitable for cladding, fences, claustras, shutters,... with little or medium exposure to the sun. For very sunny and weather exposed surfaces (extreme conditions such as full south, south of France), it is recommended to choose a tinted version.

HOW TO USE THE SIDING SATURATOR SB600
PREPARE THE WOODEN SIDING
The wood must be clean, dry (humidity <20%), dust-free and free of traces of old finish. If necessary, clean, strip and sand down to the raw wood and remove dust.
Ready to use product. No dilution is necessary. Shake well before application for good pigment dispersion.
- Apply the saturator in the direction of the wood grain using a brush, spalter or roller (short bristles), in 1 regular and fine coat. For very absorbent substrates, apply a 2nd coat after a minimum drying time of 2 hours but not more than 24 hours.
Allow to dry. Wait at least 24 hours before putting back into use.
Complete hardening is reached after a few days, take a few precautions during the first few days (do not cover, do not wet, do not scratch...).
MAINTENANCE OF WOODEN SIDING
Maintain as soon as the shade of the wood becomes lighter and duller under the action of the weather and the sun's UV radiation. Simply apply a new coat of product to the previously cleaned surface. If necessary, a light sanding can be carried out.
PRECAUTIONS BEFORE APPLYING THE SATURATOR

Do not apply in direct sunlight and in temperatures above 35°C (95F) or below 10°C (50F).

Application of the Siding Saturator SB600
Oil, Stain or Saturator, which to choose?
Are you hesitating between an oil, a saturator or a stain to protect your wooden siding? We will show you the most suitable product on our advice page: Stain, Saturator or Oil, which to choose?
Whether in Red Cedar, Larch or Douglas Fir, wooden cladding requires effective protection against the elements, daily aggression and UV rays. For this, it is important to protect them by applying a saturator adapted to this type of vertical surfaces. Wooden cladding is a very aesthetic and stylish substrate, especially when made of Douglas, Red Cedar or Larch. We recommend applying a saturator to prevent greying and loss of colour in the wood. Our saturator has been specially designed and developed to meet this need and is the ideal product for the protection and maintenance of wood siding.
