Carefree Protective Treatment: This treatment utilising the very cutting edge of treatment on the market today. Developed with Valvoline to produce a world class timber treatment.

Carefree Protectant water-based coating without solvents penetrates deep into the wood and gives all wood types and wood products, such as fences, decking, garden furniture, garden posts, log cabins, garden houses, larch and hardwood, as well as concrete products!
 
It forms a protective layer against moisture, sunlight, wind and other weather influences. It ensures only a thin layer is on the surface, due to which the structure of the wood or concrete remains clearly visible when using the opaque treatment. 
 
Highly Recommended for use on:
  • Log Cabins and all Timber Buildings
  • Larch Timber - to maintain the natural colour
  • Pressure Impregnated Timber
  • Hardwood Timber  - to maintain the natural colour
  • Concrete
  • Inside buildings with a high moisture content such as saunas and log cabins with hot-tubs in and enclosed space or a canopy.
The advantages of Carefree Protectant:
  • Long-term protection against humidity
  • Low maintenance costs
  • Easy to apply and easy to clean
  • Excellent colour retention with minimal discolouring through sunlight
  • Reduced vulnerability to fungi and algae
  • Impregnating
  • Anti-corrosive
  • Water-repellent
  • High Elasticity
  • Prevents calcium formation on concrete
  • Very quick Drying
  • Carefree Wood Protectant is easy to use.
  • Wood Protectant dries fast, and your wood/concrete is ready to use in 15 minutes (depending on temperature, humidity and type of surface).
  • Wood protectant can be used without a basic or other primer.
  • This makes the long-term protection of wood and concrete quick and simple.
  • Carefree Wood Protectant must be stored frost-free.
  • Brushes can be cleaned in water.
  • At Least Three coats are required on log Cabins and Saunas.
  • The transparent treatment is excellent for use on Larch and Hardwood to help maintain the natural colour.

Please Note: The colours shown in the Catalogue and Website may not 100% match the colour received. ALWAYS carry out a tester on scrap timber before using.
 
Carefree Protect (CFP) differs from normal paint as it penetrates much more in the underlying surface.
Although penetration is still possible with lower temperatures, we advise to apply CFP with temperatures from at least 7 degrees Celsius.
 
Wood has to be dry during application of CFP in order to guarantee the best possible penetration.
 
Coverage:
 
Coverage is dependent on the individual painter but overall it is 6 - 8 m.sq per litre. With the 2.5 litre tins the coverage is 15 - 20 m.sq.
 
The layer thickness is on average 20 - 30 microns. A depth of 80 - 120 microns is recommended for all log cabins. We would recommend three - four coats of this treatment for maximum stabilisation and longevity with a re-application every few years.
 
Please Note: The colours shown in the Catalogue and Website may not 100% match the colour received. ALWAYS carry out a tester on scrap timber before using.
 
Notes:
If a log cabin is shut up regularly, is not ventilated, does not have a DPM then we also recommend the treatment of the inside of the building. It is always good practice to paint the inside of doors and windows to stabilise the timber in high and low relative humidity.
 
The transparent treatment is very transparent, please be careful to cover fully when treating particularly in the case of the window anddoor beading it is also easy to miss the bottom of the building: As it is very transparent it is easy to miss these areas - please be careful.
 
Three coats is advisable liberally applied, four coats is better. It is a good idea to treat the doors and windows inside and outside to stabilise the wood and guard against warping.
 
On log cabins three coats is recommended and pay special attention to all joints and liberally apply in these areas especially the corner joints, windows and doors. Of course it is best to treat the cabin prior to installation but we appreciate this is not always practical.
 
Minimum order quantity of two pieces. Price shown is for one piece.

This paint is easy to apply and dries fast. The clear colour has a slight pink tint before it dries making it easier to see where you have applied but you should apply this quite liberally particularly in the joints were it can be harder to see if you have covered everything. The grey colour is very easy to apply as has a great coverage and colour after two coats (we had previously painted with clear protect so this maybe different if you’re painting on ‘fresh’ wood). The paint also doesn’t completely compromise the lovely natural wood grain texture which is great. I found the white paint quite translusent and needing more coats before having good coverage and colour. All of these paints need to be stirred more than your average paint particularly if you’re using coloured paint to ensure that the colour has properly mixed and the paint achieves the right thickness.
If you’re planning on getting the clear colour and your cabin is in a sunny spot, I would recommend applying a good number of liberal coats (at least 4-5) immediately after the cabin has been built particularly on the sides that are facing the sun. With less than this you’re likely to get sun damage after a few years which is hard and potentially costly to reverse.
Once enough paint has been applied you can see water just running off the surface.
The only downside is the price but I would say that if you protect your cabin properly from the start it’s worth it in the long run.

Quality of stain is excellent. I used one 2.5L tin to provide exactly the right coverage for One coat of a 2.9m x 2.9m Jorgen Pent Cabin.

However the “Light Oak” Colour has actually come up a garish, bright orange which has caused quite a few comments by neighbours and to be honest is really quite ugly.

I have had to now buy a paint to cover it up which I really didn’t want to do.

Credit to Tuin customer service team though, they have been helpful in organising a refund (but it’s still left me out of pocket through returning the product and meant that I’m going to have to now cover up the lovely wood effect of the cabin)

5 stars for the quality of the product and Tuin customer service

1 star for the horrible orange colour of the “Light Oak”

Seems good stuff but of course only time will tell. Got a decent colour with 2 coats of Concrete Grey and the third coat didn't make much difference. The white though definitely needed 3 coats and might need a fourth. The coverage rates stated are very accurate, I got more than they quote.

The tins need a really good shake before using and you can get a thicker layer at the bottom of the tin. For the Concrete Grey, this resulted in a bluer shade in places during the second coat so when the next tin was about half empty gave it a stir as the shaking didn't shift it.

I purchased the timber treatment along with my cabin and have now painted the outside white with grey doors it looks very attractive.

The treatment went on easily it is runny and you have to put on a,number of coats but I think it will protect my cabin for a good view years and it looks very attractive

Did exactly what it said on the tin - covered excellently and gave us the finish we required. Only awkward bit was initial purchase where we wanted just one tin for the doors and windows but could not purchase it off the web page as there is a minimum purchase of two items, therefore had to contact Tuin directly, and was only able to buy 1 tin because I'd purchased other items previously.
