    • Why do wood knots show through paint?
      • Resins escape from wood through knots. These resins can leak through primers, undercoats and topcoats leaving yellow marks in your paint. Our Knot Block Wood Primer & Undercoat is guaranteed to stop this from happening. 

    • How to internal prepare wood before painting?
      • Bare wood


        Lightly sand your wood to give it an even finish. Use 120grit sandpaper and sand in the direction of the woodgrain. Remember to wear a face mask. When the dust has settled, give the area a quick vacuum and wipe your wood with white spirit. Fill any holes or cracks with our Multi Purpose Wood Filler. Then use one of our Primer & Undercoats to help your paint stick and make it last longer.

        Previously painted wood


        If your old paint is in good condition just give it a light sand with 240grit sandpaper. Then, to help your paint last longer, put on one of our Primer & Undercoats.

        If your paint is flaking or cracked you’ll need to sand it back to bare wood. The easiest way to do this is with an electric sander. Use 120grit sandpaper and sand in the direction of the woodgrain. It creates a lot of dust, so make sure you wear a face mask. When the dust has settled, give the area a quick vacuum and wipe your wood with white spirit. Fill any holes or cracks with our Multi Purpose Wood Filler. For holes and cracks bigger than 5mm use our High Performance Wood Filler. Then use one of our Primer & Undercoats.

    • What is Diamond Hard?
      • Diamond Hard means the coating is extra tough, so it'll protect and last longer. It'll stand up to knocks, scuffs, spills, heat and whatever else daily life throws at it.

    • What's Silver Guard technology?
      • The Silver Guard barrier found in our Anti-Bacterial Worktop oil stops E Coli and MRSA growth immediately. It helps keep wooden surfaces clean and free from bacteria.

    • What's BBA Approval?
      • BBA stands for British Board of Agreement. It's an Independent body that certifies that Ronseal 5 Year Wood Stain delivers 5 year protection.

    • What's the difference between the wax and a varnish?
      • Traditionally varnishes give a hard protective surface and waxes are soft which means they mark and scuff easily. Our new wax gives you the look and natural feel of a wax while protecting like a varnish. It's lightly tinted and comes in a matt finish. A varnish gives wood a richer colour and comes in gloss, satin and matt.
