    • Good flow properties
    • Elastic
    • Does not flake
    • Weather-resistant and UV-resistant
    • Less discolouration due to water-soluble substances in the wood
    • Made from at least 70% renewable raw materials
    • Bee-friendly formula
    • 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

        Thoroughly remove any dirt, grease and non-adhering old coatings.

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

        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).

        Wood building elements should be constructed so they shed and do not retain water (avoid level surfaces, open end-grain wood, capillary joints, water and moisture accumulation points, contact with splash water, sharp edges), thereby reducing the need to use wood preservatives as far as possible.

        Exterior wood that needs to be protected against soft rot and blue stain must be pre-treated with a suitable wood preservative* - not necessary for interior wood (*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".

        Aqua OWF-68/tm [eco] (in white and light colours) reduces yellow discolouration caused by water-soluble substances contained in the wood. For an even greater level of protection or for use on a wide range of other substrates, Aqua AG-26 can be used as an undercoat.

        To avoid bleeding of substances in the wood into adjoining building elements (e.g. infilling in framework areas), treat the wood all round.

        Old weathered carbolineum coatings can only be coated with dark colours. Always test first with a trial coating.

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 10 °C max. 25 °C
      • Stir before use
      • Stir well.

        Application by brush, spraying

        Flow cup gun: nozzle: 1.6 mm; spraying pressure: 2.5–2.8 bar

        Airmix spraying: nozzle size: 0.23 - 0.28 mm, material pressure: 80 - 100 bar, atomiser air pressure: 1.2 - 2 bar.

        Airless spraying: nozzle size: 0.38 mm; spraying pressure: 80-100 bar (use yellow pistol filter)

        Apply a second coat once the first has dried.

        Apply a further coat if required.

        Protect end-grain surfaces against water ingress by applying multiple coats of the material in the corresponding colour. Alternatively, coat the end-grain surfaces with Induline SW-910 before applying the final coat.

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

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 6 h
      • 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.

        Do not use below +5 °C

        If the temperature is too low or the humidity too high, it will take longer for the material to reach the desired properties.

        Do not use on wood impregnated with boron salts.

        Ensure sufficient ventilation when applying indoors.

        Areas that are being coated or dried should be protected against rain, wind, sunlight and condensation.

        The colour shown on the sample does not appear until the material has dried.

      • Drying

        Dust-dry: after approx. 1 hour
        Overcoating: after approx. 6 hours

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

        Low temperatures and high humidity delay drying.

        Drying may take longer depending on the type of wood, e.g. oak, due to substances it contains.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Paintbrush with acrylic bristles, flat brush, flow cup gun, airless/airmix 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 24 months
      • 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
      • 75 ml per layer applied / m²
      • Approx. 75 ml/m² per coat

        White and light colours: 3 coats
        Alternative for an even greater level of protection: 2x Aqua AG-26 & 1x Aqua OWF-68/tm [eco]

        Medium and dark colours: 2 coats

    • General information
      • Bright (especially white), solvent-based and water-dilutable oil and alkyd resin paints will exhibit varying levels of yellowing during their useful life.

        Brilliant, pure, intensive colours have a lower hiding power due to their pigments. We recommend fully pre-coating such areas with a matching coloured primer if using critical colours.

        When using a transparent protective coating (e.g. in order to make the surface more mechanically resistant or to prevent pigment abrasion), slight changes in the colour may occur.

        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.

      • 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.
