Frequently Asked Questions

How do I use the Rhino PreTreat product?

In the initial stage starts with all wood rot and decay needing to be removed before application of Rhino PreTreat. Next, ensure wood is wet to open pores, then add Rhino PreTreat, wait an hour, then apply a second time. Leave time to dry (more time should be allocated to dry based on how big the repair job is). Mix and pour liquid A and B and while that is wet, add wood putty to finish.

Should I apply a couple applications of the Rhino PreTreat?

Yes, apply a coat and let it sit for an hour, then add the next and allow to dry before doing an actual repair. It usually depends on the environmental condition during the application.

What is the purpose of the Rhino PreTreat product?

Rhino PreTreat is formulated with effective active ingredients that penetrate deep into the wood fibres, enhancing its structural integrity and prolonging its lifespan. It contains adhesion promoters that draw in the mixed liquid A & B epoxy deeper into the wood. When applying coatings, it will draw any clear to opaque coatings deeper in to your wood. It stabilizes the wood ph levels, which extends the life of the wood.

When applying PreTreat, does the decayed/damaged area have to be dry?

Yes. The area has to be completely dry and free of water and moisture.

What temperature is recommended to use the liquid A and Liquid B product?

It is recommended to use product when temperatures are above 13°C (55°F). Liquid A and B should be at room temperature.

How do I prepare the wood surface?

Scrape away loose paint/stain with a scraper. Sand if necessary. Remove any decayed or damaged wood. Remove any grease, oil, dirt or other debris from area to be repaired. If necessary drill additional 3/8” or 1/2” holes a couple of inches from area to be repaired to apply additional Rhino PreTreat product. Ensure area is dry and clean before actual repair (at least 24 hours).

Do I wait until mixed liquid is hard before I fill repair with putty?

The putty needs to be applied to the mixed wet surface. If it hardens before you put the putty, re-apply the liquid A&B and then putty.

Do I need to add more than one coating of mixed liquid to the damaged wood area?

If you have missed or if you are unable to take out all of the damaged wood, the remaining damaged wood will aggressively absorb the mixed liquid. It may be required to add second coating of mixed liquid. We recommend you wait 5-20 minutes before applying another coating to ensure surface is wet for adhesion to putty.
