      • Substrate requirements

        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.

        Wood substrates:

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

        Remove loose and torn knots as well as resin that bleeds and clean with a suitable product (e.g. Remmers thinner & brush cleaner).

        Exterior wood that is to be protected against rot and blue stain and/or wood-destroying insects should be pre-treated with a suitable wood preservative* [see system products]. (*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".

        To prevent bleeding of substances in the wood, apply a primer coat of Aqua AG-26 Universal Primer when using this product in white or light colours.

        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.

        Zinc (galvanised steel):

        Clean with an ammonium-based wetting agent, using an abrasive pad. Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 5.

        Pre-treat with Aqua AG-26 Universal Primer if the substrate is exposed to increased mechanical stresses.

        Mineral substrates:

        Substrates should be prepared in accordance with the guidelines for scrub-proof and weather-resistant dispersion paints (DIN 53778).

        Thoroughly remove algae and moss from old fibrated cement surfaces. Allow the substrate to dry fully.

        Repair damaged render.

        Set up a trial area to test whether the product can be used to rework old oil-based coatings.

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 25 °C
      • Stir before use
      • By brush / By roller
      • Stir well and apply quickly using a brush or roller.

        Observe the waiting times between coats.

        See application examples for substrate-specific set-up.

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 2-4 h
      • Before coating technically modified woods and wood-based materials, apply the product to a trial surface and conduct a suitability test on the desired area of use.

        If using white or light colours, apply 2 primer coats of Aqua AG-26 Universal Primer.

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

        Paint-on-paint contact, e.g. stacking, should be avoided.

        Do not use on wood impregnated with boron salts.

        Ensure sufficient ventilation when applying indoors.

      • Drying

        2 - 4 hours at 20 °C and 65% relative humidity.
        Exterior wood should be protected from rain for at least 4 hours after coating (danger of washing off).

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        Dilute with water if necessary.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush / By roller
      • Paintbrush with acrylic bristles, flat brush, foam roller

      • Clean tools immediately after use with water and detergent.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • At least 36 months in unopened, original containers stored cool, dry and protected from frost.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 80 ml - 100 ml / m² per layer applied
      • Approx. 80 - 100 ml/m² per coat
        If pre-treated with Aqua AG-26 Universal Primer (for light colours): 1 x 100 ml/m²

    • General information
      • DIN EN 71-3 "Migration of certain elements":

        This product complies with the limits for the migration of heavy metals to children's toys according to DIN EN 71-3 and thus fulfils one of several further requirements for the safety of children's toys according to the EU "Toy Directive" (2009/48/EC).

        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.

        Observe the regulations concerning design principles for wood protection.

        Do not use on horizontal surfaces without drainage slopes and without edge radius, avoid accumulated moisture.

    • 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
      • For further information on the safety aspects of transporting, storing and handling the product and on disposal and environmental matters, please see the current Safety Data Sheet.
