Gum in timber

From the Resene paint and decorating problems solver

Gum exudation or bleeding can occur on unstable timber. This can be as the result of LOSP preservative treatment or may simply be because certain pieces of timber are not suitable for exterior use. Gum exudation cannot be prevented by use of special paints but can be minimised by coating in pale colours rather than dark.
