Cabot® PRO.V.T.® is an advanced-technology, 100% acrylic solid color stain formulated to have superior performance properties for the professional user.
PRO.V.T. is a heavily pigmented and exceptionally thick stain, delivering greater opacity than conventional solid color stains. The result is smoother
spread, better coverage and superb handling when applied by either brush or sprayer. In addition, this product has been developed and tested for use in
colder temperatures, extending the exterior maintenance season for professionals in cooler climates. Cabot PRO.V.T. covers previously painted or stained
surfaces in just one coat, improving project completion time and maximizing labor efficiencies. Cabot PRO.V.T. is so advanced it does not require the use
of a primer coat on non-extractive-prone wood species such as pine, white cedar or cypress.
On smooth surfaces covers approximately 300-400 square feet per gallon and on rough surfaces, 200-300 square feet per gallon. These rates will vary
depending upon the porosity of the surface.
Where to Use
This versatile, fade-resistant and water-repellent exterior stain provides superior results when applied on new or reconditioned wood siding and
shingles, cement siding, manufactured hardboards, previously painted surfaces, aluminum and pre-primed ferrous metal, masonry, stucco and plywood
Preparing Your Surfaces
Proper surface preparation is the key to maximum stain performance. The durability of this product can be impaired by an unsound or poorly prepared surface.
It is very important that the surface be clean of all dirt, mildew stains, loose wood fibers and other foreign matter. Surfaces must be structurally
sound and absolutely dry. (Moisture content must be below 15%, or the wood must be exposed to dry weather for a minimum of 3 to 5 days.) Previously painted,
stained or weathered wood surfaces must be either sanded, scrubbed with a detergent solution or Cabot Problem-Solver® Wood Cleaner and a stiff bristle brush,
or power washed to remove the surface layer of all loose wood fibers, dirt, mildew stains, chalky residues and other foreign matter. Use Cabot Problem-Solver
Wood Brightener to easily remove tannin bleed, nail and metal rust stains, and renew the wood's appearance. New smooth
wood that is unseasoned or appears
shiny should be allowed to weather sufficiently before staining, but generally no longer than 4 weeks. The use of Cabot's Problem-Solver
the need to weather new wood and retards extractive bleeding in wood species such as red cedar, fir and redwood.
Stir thoroughly before and occasionally during use. Intermix containers of the same color. Apply two coats to new wood for maximum protection. Apply with a
high-quality polyester brush, roller or spray. When spraying, always backbrush for optimal results. Maintain a wet edge to avoid lap marks. Restain every
6-8 years for best appearance.
