Article No. 249820
Water-based, white primer with film preservative
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
- 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
- Ready to apply by dipping or flow-coating
- Less discolouration due to water-soluble substances in the wood
- Good flow characteristics on untreated and impregnated wood
- Good pore wetting performance
- Outstanding (wet) adhesion
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%
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".
Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +15 °C to max. +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 the material is dry, apply an intermediate coating of a suitable system product.
If you wish to use this primer as an intermediate coating, please discuss this with the Remmers Technical Service first.
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.
The best flow results on Accoya, oak and chestnut are achieved at a pH value of 9.0–9.5, corresponding to an additive content of 0.3–0.5% VP 20829 Additive (0366).
If the viscosity increases due to evaporation, water must be added (target viscosity: runout time approx. 30 - 32 s in 3 mm ISO cup).
Dilute with up to 10% water to improve flow properties in unfavourable conditions (elevated temperatures, low humidity). Add water to make up for any moisture lost through evaporation.
In the event of foam formation in the flow coating facility, it is recommended to add 0.1 - 0.2% VP 21638 defoamer strength 3.
The product's sealing effect may be impaired if it is diluted too thinly, if the wood is too wet or if the recommended coating sequence, application volumes and drying times are not observed.
With water based coating systems, there is always a residual risk that substances contained in the wood will cause discoloration.
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. 2 hours
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)
Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.
Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.
Ready to use.
If necessary, dilute with water (max. 10%).
Working tools / cleaning
Acrylic brush, dipping tank, flow coating facility, spraying tunnel
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
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.
80 - 120 ml/m² per coat
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.
