Black-Brown Pine Tar
Auson Black-Brown is a genuine pine tar with both black and brown pigments. Black-brown pine tar produces a softer look than Auson Black Tar. We call Black-Brown Tar the architect’s choice. It provides the same protection against rot and drying out as all our other tar paints. The softer black hue is a good match for modern wooden homes, as well as fences, boathouses and wooden roofs. You can use Black-Brown Tar on untreated wood or on wood that has previously been painted with tar, distemper paint or iron vitriol. If you paint on planed wood, you need to dilute with 10–20% turpentine or denatured alcohol. On non-planed wood, no preparations are needed.
Always stir well before painting, since the colour pigment gathers near the bottom during storage. Stir regularly while painting, too. Otherwise the colour pigment will gather at the bottom and you will end up with an uneven olour on your facade.
