Carefree Protective Treatment (old name - Max-Release): 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.

Bought this along with my Karen log cabin. I thought it was expensive to begin with but after investing in the cabin I thought that there was no point scrimping on the protection for it. I am glad I bought this as I read that people had spend 6 hours plus for each cost applied, I have applied 4 coats in total using a spray gun in less than 2 hours overall total time and because this product is water based it is easy to use and also an easy clean up

Have treated my cabin with 3 coats of clear carefree protectant. Although looked slightly patchy at times as doors and window frames were done at separate times to the walls it settled after a few days and looks really good. Not the easiest treatment to apply as it is very thin (as stated on website) and starts to go tacky very quickly. Have applied 3 coats inside and out. Should protect for many years. Only time will tell. Only negative is the price but if its as good as claimed it will be worth it.

Great product, easy to work with and goes a long way. Once painted, you can see this is a quality product. We used it for our daughter´s playhouse. We are planning a log cabin next summer and we will definitely use this treatment again.

Brilliant product, easy to apply and wash out of brushes. I went for the clear option to further enhance my cabins appearance. The only down side was not knowing where I had covered as I painted it one! Perhaps a colour tint that fades when dry would help? It takes little time to dry and does seem to be flexible as the description suggests. A good option for protection my investment.

Easy to apply and works a treat, I would definitely recommend this product to anyone needing to preserve and waterproof timber buildings/furniture.
