    Field of application

    • For use on exterior wood
    • Wood without ground contact
    • Wood building elements with no dimensional stability: e.g. fences, framework, carports, planking
    • Wood building elements with limited dimensional stability, e.g. folding shutters, matchboarding, summerhouses
    • Primer, intermediate and finishing coats


    • Low-build stain in brilliant colours
    • Only one coat needed
    • 3 in 1: impregnation, priming and stain
    • Impregnation effect: saturates wood to protect against moisture
    • Diffusion-open protective film: moisture can escape
    • Water-repellent: wet surfaces dry quickly
    • Reduces the risk of rot when used in conjunction with constructive wood protection measures
    • Coating is protected against mould, algae and blue stain
    • Cream form: no need to stir, non-drip for overhead working
    • Self-levelling
    • Does not flake
    • Subsequent treatment without sanding
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        Wood building elements with limited or no dimensional stability: wood moisture content max. 18%

      • Preparations

        Completely remove old coatings (e.g. paints or medium-build stains), bark, bast and dirt.

        Remove any loose and torn knots as well as resin that bleeds from the wood and clean with a suitable product (e.g. V 101 Thinner, a nitrocellulose or universal thinner).

        Smooth, planed wood surfaces should be sanded and dusted before the coating is applied to ensure better absorption.

        Take appropriate measures to protect adjacent building elements and materials that should not come into contact with the product.

        Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 18 "Coatings on Wood and Wooden Working Materials in Outdoor Areas".

    • Application
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +5 °C to max. +25 °C

      • Apply using a brush or roller.

        Apply in the direction of the grain.

        After drying, apply a second coat if required.

        Seal opened containers well and use contents as soon as possible.

    • Application instructions
      • Check colour, adhesion and compatibility with the substrate by setting up a trial area.

        If the surface is overcoated with other products it is recommended to test the adhesion to the substrate.

        White should be used in outdoor areas only for surfaces not directly exposed to weather such as roof eaves etc. or as base coat.

        Rainfall may cause water soluble substances to bleed from wood that is rich in such substances, e.g. oak, red cedar, afzelia, redwood, etc. This may lead to the discolouration of light-coloured masonry or render.

        End-grain surfaces must be sealed with the corresponding colour (at least 2 applications)

        Cut end-grain surfaces at the bottom to create a water-drip edge.

        Each layer of medium-build stain results in a more intense colour and a glossier finish.

      • Drying

        Approx. 12 hours at 20 °C and 65% relative humidity.

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

        Drying time may be significantly delayed depending on the type of wood, e.g. larch.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Brush with natural bristles, flat brush, velour roller

      • Clean tools immediately after use with thinner and brush cleaner.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • At least 36 months in unopened, original containers stored cool, dry and protected from frost.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 200 ml/m² in 1-2 coats

      • Planed or very thick woods are less absorbent and require a second coat

    • General information
      • On planed larch and softwoods with a high resin content, the coating may have reduced adhesion and resistance to weathering. This is especially the case on horizontal year rings, knots and areas of winter growth that are high in resin. Maintenance and renovation must be carried out more frequently on these surfaces. The only remedy for this is pre-weathering or very coarse sanding (P80). If these wood types are rough-sawn, considerably longer maintenance and renovation intervals are to be expected.

    • Disposal instructions
      • Larger quantities of leftover product should be disposed of in the original containers in accordance with the applicable regulations. Completely empty, clean containers should be recycled. Do not dispose of together with household waste. Do not allow to enter the sewage system. Do not empty into drains.

    • Safety / regulations
