Frequently Asked Questions

What is water-soluble oil?

Water-soluble oil means that DuroGrit contains an emulsion of oil in water. Once the water has evaporated, the oil remains.

Can DuroGrit be applied over Hybrid Wood Protector?

Yes. Make sure to use Exterior Wood Cleaner before the application of DuroGrit. Sanding the layer of Hybrid Wood Protector is not necessary unless the Hybrid Wood Protector layer is still very present. Keep in mind that DuroGrit is a semi-transparent finish. This means spots where the old Hybrid Wood Protector coating is still present, these may be visible through DuroGrit. For aesthetic reasons it may be better to completely remove residual Hybrid Wood Protector.

Can DuroGrit be sprayed?

Yes, DuroGrit can be sprayed with a manual spray gun. Dilute up to 20% with water
for spray application. For industrial spray applications (i.e. spray coater, airless, …) use the industrial version. For further spraying questions, please reach out to our support team.

Can you dilute DuroGrit?

Yes. In case of rough/weathered wood, highly absorbent woods or to improve spreadability for deck applications, you can dilute DuroGrit with up to maximum 20% water.

Can DuroGrit be applied on every wood type?

Yes. Please remember certain colors are recommended for a more natural look, while others are not recommended for certain species.

Can you apply a second layer for an even better protection or more intense color?

DuroGrit is a one-layer product. When two or more coats are applied, there is a chance that the second coat will not adhere, allowing it to easily scratch off. However, in exceptional cases, e.g. very grey/weathered wood, a second layer might be necessary for aesthetic reasons. The first layer will act as a primer, but due to the high and inequal absorption of the wood, a second layer will provide a more uniform color. In these cases, we also advise diluting DuroGrit with 20% of water.

Can DuroGrit be applied on interior woodwork?

Even though it would be technically possible to use DuroGrit for interior woodwork, we do not recommend this. The product is developed for an exterior environment: 1) It contains biocides to prevent fungi. 2) Unlike Oil Plus 2C, DuroGrit roughens the wood a bit. 3) With Oil Plus 2C you can have a much smoother and cleaner finish, without worrying about brush marks, which is more desirable in an interior environment.

Can you apply DuroGrit over another non-Rubio Monocoat coating?

No.
