        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 needs to be protected against soft rot and blue stain must be pre-treated with a suitable 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".

        To prevent coloured substances contained in the wood from bleeding through white or light-coloured versions of this product, prime using Sealing Primer.

        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 All 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.

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

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 2-4 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 product to a trial surface and conduct a suitability test on the desired area of use.

        Cut end-grain surfaces at the bottom to create a water-drip edge.

        End-grain wood preservative should first be applied to end-grain wood and cut surfaces in order to protect them against moisture.

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

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

        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.

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush / By roller
      • Brush with acrylic bristles, flat brush, mohair 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
      • 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
      • Approx. 100 ml / m² per layer applied
      • 100 ml/m² per coat

      • See application examples for different application rates depending on the substrate

    • 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
