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.

I did a lot of research on the clear varnish as it was very, very expensive but decided to use Carefree based on the fact that the drying time (15-20 minutes, depending on the weather) is far quicker than any other available products. In fact Sadolins (much cheaper) stated it was 18 to 20 hours drying time after one coat then you were recommended to lightly sand the surface before applying the next coat for the best effect. Well, this is all very but to apply 3 coats of varnish & sand in between each coat as well as contending with the English rain, this would take well over 3 weeks to varnish my cabin. Not an option when you are working, running a household & taxi-ing a child to all their activities. So, based on the time element I bought Carefree & am extremely pleased with the result. I would highly recommend it & it is well worth it's high price as it certainly does a good job & looks really classy. For those of you who have trouble working out the quantities they require, I bought 4 x 2.5L tins to cover a Daisy log Cabin 3.5m x 2.5m & after a very liberal first coat which used 1 tin & a quarter of the second one (the wood sucks up the first coat), I am now about to open my last tin with only the long back wall & front of the cabin to coat for it's third coat. This also includes that I have already painted the inside walls, ceiling & floor of the cabin. So, that should give you an idea of the area that Carefree covers & I would thoroughly recommend it to everyone for ease & quickness of use.

Like most of the reviews I thought this was expensive but very glad I bought it. I painted the main body of my Riina Log Cabin concrete grey and the windows and doors white. I thought it was quite thin to begin with but once I gave it a good stir it did thicken slightly. I painted 3 coats of the grey and as the white is quite translucent used 6 coats to get a good coverage. As I have a lot of white left I’m going to paint in inside walls to give extra protection. I am really pleased with the result and can’t see it will need to be repainted for many years. Also excellent service from Tuin ordered on a Monday and arrived Tuesday morning.

This product is recommended for the treatment of cabins, it is not cheap, however it does go a long way and the results were very good, other well known treatments do not give as good a finish, I have used other good quality products, but without the finish, well worth the investment if your going to do it right.

We bought a TUIN summer house (Daniel Corner), which is a great product in itself. The pressure treated timber is supposed to withstand the elements, but we want to give the timber some long-term protection and to add colours. Having researched on the most effective timber treatment products to get, I narrowed down the choice to the Carefree Protectant and OSMO Country Colour range. While the colour palette is smaller than Osmo, I chose Carefree Protectant because it is water-based, quick to dry, and as I understand, the protection fluid with fungicide etc is soaked into the wood, as distinct from OSMO oil range, which stays on top of the wood surface and does not contain preservative chemicals such as fungicide. The water-based property of Carefree Protectant makes it easy to apply and the brushes and rollers are easy to clean. The summer house is painted 'Concrete Grey' with windows and door in 'White' from the colour palette.
