How to paint your teak furniture

It is possible to paint your teak furniture. As teak is a wood that secretes oil, some precautions must be taken to ensure a good adhesion.

If the furniture is new and needs to be painted on raw teak

  • Lightly sand with 180 grit in order to have a good paint adhesion.
  • Using a cloth, degrease the teak with acetone, as the presence of oil in the teak can reduce the adhesion of the paint if this step is not done.
  • Dust the furniture.
  • Apply a first coat of TEXWOOD PREMIUM, using a brush. There is no need to apply a primer, the paint is designed to replace it.
  • Lightly sand with 180 grit to obtain a smooth surface that is pleasant to the touch.
  • Apply a second coat of TEXWOOD PREMIUM, if the result is not satisfactory, apply a third coat.
