Ensure the success of your Encore deck project with Pretreat, an adhesive primer that is designed specifically for Encore! Pretreat penetrates deep into old, dry decking and creates a sub-surface bond for the Encore coating. This sub-surface bond creates unbelievable adhesive properties to help assure a lasting job. In most cases, Pretreat also extends the coverage of an Encore Kit, helping to offset its cost!
Pretreat penetrates into the cellulose fibers of the wood and literally glues the fibers together. Pretreat dries quickly and leaves behind a clear film that has molecular chain extensions that cross-link to the Encore coating. Pretreat’s ability to cross-link with Encore creates a single coating that protects your wood deck. Because of its effect and affordability, Pretreat is recommended on all deck projects using Encore Composite Coating for Wood. Pretreat is highly recommended for wood that has not been adequately maintained and is exhibiting signs of checking or splitting.
Lose your shoes and enjoy your deck again! Are you tired of walking on a deck that’s covered with dangerous splinters? While stains and sealers simply recolor splinters, Encore is made with the exclusive Splinter-Tight Technology, insuring that loose splinters are locked down permanently – solving the splinter problem!
Empty Pretreat container into pump-up garden sprayer. Pretreat may also be brushed or rolled. Apply liberally to dry wood. Allow Pretreat to penetrate into the surface. Apply Encore coating while Pretreat is still wet. Clean tools thoroughly after use. Pretreat is available in 1 gallon quantities. Coverage is up to 200 square feet. For best results, use prior to applying the Encore Wood Decking Composite Coating Kit.
