5 Year Ducksback is a wood stain with an advanced wax enriched, water repellent and non-drip formulation that colours and weatherproofs rough sawn sheds and fences for up to 5 years. Cuprinol 5 year Ducksback is quick drying and showerproof in 1 hour, low odour and safe to use around plants and pets. 

While Ducksback is not deep penetrating, it very much relies on the timber texture for adhesion. For this reason it is recommended for rough sawn timber only. If the construction contains smooth timber components, or has lost texture through weathering then adhesion performance will be reduced. For smooth wood, Garden Shades or Ultimate Garden Wood Preserver can be used. Both products can be applied to rough and smooth wood.

Applying Cuprinol 5 Year Ducksback 

We recommend that you apply 2-3 coats along the wood grain using a brush or roller to a clean, dry area free from debris, dirt or dust. Stir thoroughly before use and always try a test area first to ensure that colour and adhesion are acceptable.

Allow 2-4 hours between coats under normal weather conditions and avoid painting if rain is due before the stain dries fully. 

Please note that the colour in the tin may be different to the final shade when dry. Where a strong colour change is involved, more coats may be required so if using more than one tin, it is advisable to mix them together in a larger container or finish painting in a corner before starting a new can.
