Downloads & documents
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
- Complex & oversized building elements
- Good (wet) adhesion
- Good pore wetting performance
- Ready to apply by dipping or flow-coating
- Good flow behaviour on raw and impregnated wood, especially on complex and overdimensioned components
- Free from film preservation and wood protection biocides
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: +15 to +30 °C
Processing conditions are between +15 °C and +30 °C at a relative humidity of 40 - 80%
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.
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.
Substances in oak may bleed, causing dark discolouration, when coated with water dilutable dispersion stains.
Apply forced drying to tannin-containing woods.
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, this must be remedied with water (target viscosity: runout time approx. 23 - 27 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.
If foaming occurs in the flow coating system, it is recommended to add 0.2-1.0% VP 9325 defoaming agent - strength 2.
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.
Recoatable: after approx. 2.5 hours
(at 23 °C and 50% RH.)
Recoatable with forced drying: after approx. 90 minutes
(20 minutes dripping off/50 minutes drying phase (35 - 40 °C)/20 minutes cooling phase)
Ready to use;
Dilute with water (max. 10 %) if necessary.
Working tools / cleaning
Brush, dipping tank, flow coating system, 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
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 application
Depending on the processing method, wood type and wood surface.
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.
