    Field of application

    • For use outdoors
    • For professional users only
    • For use on exterior wood
    • Softwoods
    • Building elements with no or limited dimensional stability
    • Primer & top coat


    • Water-based
    • Special combination of binding agents creates an extremely hard-wearing surface
    • Early block resistance
    • Good flow properties
    • Water vapour diffusion capable
    • Weatherproof and moisture-regulating
    • Film preserver protects against microbial damage
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

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

        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).

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

        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).

        Sand grey and weathered wood surfaces down to sound, bright wood.

        Maintenance/renovation: apply 1-2 coats with light sanding in between.

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 0 °C max. 30 °C
      • Stir before use
      • By brush / By roller / Airless/airmix spraying
      • Stir well, including during application or after a break in work.

        Apply with a brush, roller or by spraying.

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

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 4 h
      • Check colour, adhesion and compatibility with the substrate by setting up a trial area.

        Prior to full application, please apply a test coat to a sample area under practical conditions using the desired system, then test or examine the surface properties.

        Before coating technically modified woods and wood-based materials, apply the coating to a trial surface and conduct a suitability test on the desired area of use.

        Ensure good ventilation.

      • Drying

        Dust dry: after approx. 1 hour
        Can be overcoated: after approx. 4 hours

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

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use
        With water if necessary (max. 5%)

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush / By roller / Airless/airmix spraying
      • Acrylic brush, flat brush, short-pile roller, spraying equipment

        Clean tools with water or Aqua RK-898 Cleaning Concentrate immediately after use.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • Shelf-life 12 months
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 12 months.

    • Usage
      • 3 x 60 - 80 ml/m² for brush application
        2-3 x 60 - 80 ml/m² for roller application
        2 x 120 -150 ml/m² for spray application
        1-2 x 60 - 80 ml/m² for top-up/maintenance coats

    • 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
