Good but? by Frandad!

I have 15 fence panels. I bought ronseal power spray and 5l tin of spray paint. it only covered half of them and with a lot of brush work to stretch it out! I had to buy another tin. expensive but a good finish in the end.

Ronseal One Coat Sprayable Fence Life

Our One Coat Sprayable is the fastest way to stain your fence or shed. 

It contains wax to lock out the rain and its colour will last in the sun. It'll protect and look good for up to 2 years.

It only needs once coat sprayed through our sprayer. Giving your more time to enjoy the sunny weather.

Before You Start

Make sure it's a warm dry day (above 10°C and not going to rain). Cold, wet weather stops the rain from drying and it may even wash off. The wood also needs to be clean and dry, or it won't stick properly. Use a stiff brush to get rid of any dirt. Mask off any areas that you don't want to spray. Don't spray in windy weather otherwise you could end up spraying more than just your fence.

Which ever sprayer you use, make sure you read the sprayer instructions first. Check you're happy with the colour, find a small hidden patch of wood and try it before you stain the whole fence or shed.

Using One Coat Sprayable Fence Life

Give the Fence Life a good stir. You can use it with any Ronseal Sprayer.

Power Sprayer: Pour the liquid in to the sprayer tank. Our precision sprayer comes with 3 settings to get the job done with less mess. Read the instruction leaflet before you start. Then turn on the unit and start spraying.
Pump Sprayer: Pour the liquid into the tank. Pump it up and start spraying. 
When spraying, the tip to getting an even finish is to use long, sweeping, horizontal arm movements. Move along the full width of the fence panel, drop down and do the same again. Overlap each pass by 50%. This will make sure the whole area is covered with the correct amount of product.
Brush: If you want to brush it on. Get loads of Fence Life on your brush. Put a thick coat on and don't spread it too far. If your wood is very weathered, you may need to put another coat on. Leave 4 hours between coats.
Any over spray or drips should be cleaned up straight away with soapy water before the stain dries.

Clean Up

Sprayers: Sprayers aren't cheap, so if you want to use them again, you need to keep them clean. Don't leave any Fence Life in the sprayer. Flush the sprayer out with warm soapy water and make sure the sprayer wand and nozzle are clean. For full instructions on clean up please read your sprayer instruction manual.
Brush: Take as much stain as possible off your brush and clean it in warm soapy water.
Don't empty Fence Life into drains or watercourses. Your local authority may have special ways to get rid of waste product. To stop this spilling in your car, keep it secure and stood upright.

Usage Areas: All rough sawn wood, whether it's new or already stained with a similar colour. It's safe to use around plants and pets. Don't use this on decking, garden furniture or other smooth planed wood.
Coverage: With one coat, 9 litres will cover up to 45m2 (approximately 11 fence panels).
Dry Time: It's dry and rainproof in 1-2 hours.
