    Field of application

    • For use indoors and outdoors
    • for dimensionally stable elements
    • for elements with limited dimensional stability
    • for not dimensionally stable elements
    • For use on interior and exterior wood
    • Dimensionally stable wood building elements: e.g. windows and doors
    • Wood building elements with limited dimensional stability, e.g. folding shutters, matchboarding, summerhouses
    • Wood building elements with no dimensional stability: e.g. fences, framework, carports, planking
    • Soft and hard woods
    • Moisture protection for cut surfaces and end-grain wood

    Properties

    • Water-based
    • Film-forming
    • Repels water
    • Elastic
    • Inhibits diffusion
    • Effective restriction of volume increase due to moisture in the treated wood
    • Can be overcoated with conventional coating systems
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be clean, dry, free of dust, grease and loose substances, and prepared in the correct manner.

        Dimensionally stable wood building elements: wood moisture content 11-15%

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

      • Preparations

        If necessary, impregnate non-resistant woods with a wood preservative* (*Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use).

        Products that do not form films (Wood Cream, Maintenance Oil, Garden Wood Oil [eco]) must be fully applied before End Grain Sealer is used, otherwise they will not be able to penetrate the substrate.

        After priming, carry out light intermediate sanding.

    • Application
      • Brush
      • Stir before use
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 25 °C
      • Stir well.

        Apply by brush.

        A repeat application may be required in exceptional cases.

        Intermediate and final coats of suitable products can be applied after drying.

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

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 2 h
      • Check colour, adhesion and compatibility with the substrate by setting up a trial area.

        Ensure good ventilation.

      • Drying

        Can be overcoated: after approx. 2 hours

        Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Brush
      • Acrylic brush, flat brush

      • Clean tools immediately after use with water and detergent.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 24 months.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 100 ml / m² per layer applied
      • Approx. 100 ml/m² depending on the absorbency of the substrate

    • General information
      • Observe current standards and guidelines for coating wood building elements outdoors (Codes of Practice issued by the German Association of Window and Facade Manufacturers (VFF), Code of Practice No. 18 issued by the German Federal Committee for Paint and the Protection of Material Assets (BFS), guidelines issued by the German Lacquer and Printing Ink Association (VdL) and ift guidelines issued by the Institut für Fenstertechnik).

    • 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.
