- Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before using!
The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.
Field of application
- For use on exterior wood
- Soft and hard woods
- 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
- Load-bearing wood elements under roofs (e.g. trusses)
- Wood which is not in ground contact, in accordance with DIN EN 335-1, use classes 2 and 3
- Approved wood preservative according to DIN 68800-3
- Preventive protection against wood-discolouring fungi (blue stain), wood-destroying fungi (rot), insects (and termites)
- Provides protection against moisture, especially in end-grain areas
- Reduces spotting when used in combination with coloured primers
- Raises the fibres, enabling them to be removed during the first sanding operation
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%
Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from +15 °C to 30 °C.
Stir well, including during application or after a break in work.
Qualified specialist companies: brushing, dipping, flow-coating and spraying in closed systems only.
Once dry, apply further coatings.
Seal opened containers well and use contents as soon as possible.
Check colour, adhesion and compatibility with the substrate by setting up a trial area.
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.
If the viscosity increases (e.g. due to evaporation), it must be reduced again using water.
(target viscosity: approx. 45 s in DIN 2 mm flow cup or approx. 22-24 s in ISO 3 mm flow cup)
The system finder on our website www.remmers.com contains coating recommendations for specific wood types to be used when treating windows and exterior doors.
Can be overcoated: after approx. 4 hours
(at 23 °C and 50% RH)
If forced drying is used, can be overcoated: after approx. 90 minutes
(20 minutes dripping time/50 minutes drying phase (35 – 40 °C)/20 minutes cooling phase)
Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.
If the viscosity increases (e.g. due to evaporation), this must be corrected using water.
Working tools / cleaning
Brush, dipping tank, flow coating facility, 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 in well-sealed, original containers, out of the reach of children and in a dry, cool, well-ventilated room which is protected from direct sunlight and frost. No smoking is permitted in storage areas.
100 ml/m²: For use against fungi, insects and termites
According to the current state of the art (this includes DIN 68800-1 and -3 in Germany), wood preservation measures must also be planned for non-load-bearing wooden elements in good time and with due care, with the agreement of all parties involved in the construction (architect, developer, builder) and in compliance with the legal requirements and the conditions on site. The use of biocidal (“chemical”) wood preservatives should therefore always be indicated in suitable fashion prior to sale, or must be agreed in advance with the client in writing. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in country-specific or contract-specific conflicts with legal requirements, standards or certification systems. The Remmers Technical Service would be happy to discuss the matter and provide you with a template agreement for the use of a biocidal (“chemical”) wood preservative on the wooden elements being used.
Observe the information sheets “Upkeep and Maintenance of Dipping Tanks and Flow Coating Facilities” and “Information on Workplace Hygiene”.
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.
