Directions for use


Moisture level of wood needs to be 15% or less before beginning (Wait 3 months before applying on new wood, one year on new treated wood.). Stir well with a stick before and while using. Do not apply in sunlight or at a temperature below 10 °C. The wood must be completely dry, clean and sanded with a 80 grit paper.

For an application on sawn wood or to obtain a softer coloration, it’s possible to dilute Pareo with an equal part or less of Pareo Colorless Base.

Do not apply only the Pareo Colourless Base on surfaces exposed to sun. The dilution of Pareo with Pareo Colorless Base decreases UV resistance. The pigments contained in the tinted Pareo are essential for the wood conservation.


Apply with a stain brush or a stain pad in very thin coats, wipe off any excess oil with a cotton rag.

If more than 24 hours have passed since the first application, sand lightly with a 120 grit paper before the second application.

The use of a spray gun is highly unsuitable for vertical application. For horizontal surfaces, wipe off any excess oil after spray gun application.
