Stain & Paints
Canterbury trellis is a supplier of quality Aqualin timber stains and paints. We have trialled many brands and found that the Aqualin range provides the best coverage, depth of colour and durability for use on our products. Aqualin works equally well with all our timber types, from our soft woods such as Pine thought to our medium density and hard woods, such as Macrocarpa and Garapa. We highly recommend Aqualin for all your staining requirements.
A unique, water based, high performance, linseed oil penetrating timber stain.

For use on absorbent, new or weathered, timber surfaces. Aqualin is applied as a water based product. When the water evaporates linseed oil is released to penetrate into the timber, forming a low gloss stained finish of relatively high opacity, giving excellent UV absorption and high durability.

The film dries overnight to a surface with no ‘rub off’ and continues hardening for several days.

Aqualin is a house quality stain, yet affordable for fences.
Aqualin can be used over previously stained surfaces provided they have weathered and become absorbent so that the Aqualin can soak in. (You can test absorbance of doubtful surfaces with plain water to check if soaks in and does not form water beads.)

Aqualin is also useful as a sealer on weathered areas of wood when painting. It can be over coated with conventional paints but our ‘Multiversal’ paint is recommended.

Brown Bark, Denim, Ebony, Green Pine, Nutmeg, Redwood, Rustic Oak, Stonewood, Transpar (Clear), Terracotta.  

Note: The Transpar (Clear) is not as durable as the colours, so is not recommended for exterior finishing unless some colour is added in the form of Aqualin colour or Universal colourants. (It is however useful as a primer on weathered timber to improve the adhesion of paint.)
