I used the Rubio Monocoat Hybrid on a porch swing I made for my daughter. It went on easy and left a great matte finish. I've used the interior Monocoat on several slabs of Walnut and maple for a desk and tables and loved the finish. It's virtually mistake proof.
First time using the exterior hybrid wood protector product - have used interior products a lot but needed something that would hold up in the elements. Went on just as easy as the interior product and the color was the perfect level of subtle while still showing wood grain.
Excellent coverage, clean-up was simple and the piece is weathering nicely outside!
The protector looks great on the wood we used. Our specifications called for 25 liters for the project we are working on, but we had to use quite a bit more. Either the project engineer miscalculated or the coverage was more than anticipated.
I used the product on an exterior deck that included builtin planters, railing, balusters, etc. I found the product super easy to apply everywhere except that large horizontal part of the deck. There I did not find it as easy to remove excess product (per Monocoat instructions). The result still looked great. We waited a week, in warm dry weather before putting furniture back. Howevermoving a deck chair left visible scratches. This may be the result of not getting enough excess product off the surface during application. Adding rubber stick on feet solved this problem. Its good to know that we can touch up without having to strip the finish. Also, while the product is rated as being zero-VOC, it not clear how to clean brushes, etc without using pain thinner, turpentine or a similar compound. Monocoat does not provide guidance of cleanup anywhere that I can see.
