STABLE COAT – CLEAR
We offer Stable Coat in a clear un-pigmented formula for use as a top coat for stables and timber buildings that have been previously treated and require a water-proof finish. Our Stable Coat Clear can go over coatings to give improved water repellency without getting a deeper stronger colour that more coats of a coloured wood stain would give.
Some stables and timber buildings are pressure treated with a preservative because people feel this will give their stables a longer life, unfortunately normal timber preservation does not give your stable any protection from rain and the timber in your stable can let water through. This can lead to visible damage and a damp stable for your horse.
Protek Stable Coat has been specifically formulated for the exterior treatment of timber stables and animal housing. A high quality water-based treatment that is easy to apply either by a brush, roller or sprayer so large areas may be treated quickly and economically. Stable Coat is a water-based micro-porous coating that uses next generation nanotechnology to deliver an extremely hydrophobic finish that will prolong the life of your timber stable.
In the Clear Stable Coat we have put more of our hydrophobic ingredient in so water absorption is reduced to minimum, without affecting water vapour permeability; the wood can still breathe.
Stable Coat is easy to apply and designed for use on old or new stables. It is low in odour and has a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content. The unique formulation has been designed to give a quick drying thin one coat application leaving a traditional finish, that is peel and crack resistant.
Protek Stable coat is available in three traditional colours, Golden Brown, Dark Brown and the dramatic Black. As Stable Coat is water based and contains no heavy metals it means this product is a safe and odour free alternative to Creosote.

This is a protective water-repellent coating. If your timber isn’t treated with a preservative then depending on the type of wood and product, you may want to use our Wood Preserver Plus first.
Protek Stable Coat is a water-based micro-porous acrylic coating incorporating an ultra-high performance water repellency additive that uses nanotechnology to deliver an extreme hydrophobic layer of protection. Protek Stable Coat offers excellent long-term protection for stables and all other types of timber buildings. This coating is designed for the water-proofing of pressure treated timber buildings.
Protek has a long tradition of supplying wood treatment to stable manufacturers. We increasingly found we were being asked to supply the same product to stable owners so they could, when the time came, re-treat their stable in the same animal safe and environmentally sound product. Protek is a family run business with enthusiastic horse owners that understand what kind of product is required for the busy stable yard. The product must be safe, quick and easy to use but also give a finish that is attractive, high performing and long lasting.
Stable Coat is easy to apply and suitable for use on old or new stables and easily overcoats old creosote coatings. It is low in odour and has a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content. It complies to EN71 parts 2 & 3 relating to child toy safety and flammability. The unique formulation has been designed to give a quick drying coat leaving a traditional finish.
1 litre will cover approximately 10m2 depending on the moisture content and porosity of the timber. For the first treatment it is recommended that two coats be applied with only one coat needed for future maintenance and re-treatment.

Stable Coat is a highly-repellent coating. If too long is left between the first and second coat the 1st coating will repel the 2nd evident by beading. If this happens either sand back lightly or leave the first coat to weather for a couple of months before applying the second coat.
