  • Slip-resistant
  • Weather-resistant and UV-resistant
  • Improved UV protection thanks to intensive colour shades
  • Classified as non-spontaneously combustible according to EPH test report*
  • Preparation
    • Substrate requirements

      Wood building elements with limited or no dimensional stability: wood moisture content max. 18%

    • Preparations

      Wood which is rich in active substances should be weathered for a few weeks or cleaned with Wood Cleaner before being treated for the first time in order to prevent delays in the drying process.

      Use an agent such as Wood Cleaner to remove any dirt, grease and old coatings that could form a film, making sure not to leave any residue.

      Clean any greyed wood surfaces with Wood Revitalizer.

      Remove algae with Green Growth Remover*. (*Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.)

      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* (*Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use).

  • Application
    • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 25 °C
    • Stir before use
    • Brush
    • Stir well.

      Apply by brush.

      Treat all sides (of decking) on the first coat if possible.

      Apply the product using a paintbrush with synthetic bristles or a flat brush (synthetic bristles) in the direction of the grain.

      Remove or smooth out any excess material (especially in tongues and grooves) immediately.

      Apply a further coat if required.

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

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

      Although the various colours are matched to a specific type of wood, they can easily be used on other types of wood as well, in which case the look of the colour will differ from the corresponding sample.

      The clear variant does not protect against UV radiation (greying) and should therefore be used only on wood elements not directly exposed to weather (i.e. protected against direct sunlight, precipitation and wind). If a clear coating is desired on a directly exposed exterior surface, apply several coats and refresh at regular intervals.

      Rainfall may cause water soluble substances to bleed from wood that is rich in such substances, e.g. oak, red cedar, afzelia, redwood, etc. This may lead to the discolouration of light-coloured masonry or render.

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

      Apply two subsequent coats of end-grain wood preservative to end-grain wood and cut surfaces in order to protect them against moisture.

      Regular reapplications are required in areas exposed to weathering.


      It should be noted that the tests carried out by EPH could not take into account all possible scenarios that might occur in practice. For example, contact of objects and media contaminated with this product, such as rags or dust, with other highly flammable agents, such as dust containing cellulose nitrate or certain solvents, could lead to conditions that result in ignition.

      The product should not be applied at the same work stand as NC-based varnishes or stains. Collect any textiles soiled with the product (e.g. cleaning rags, work clothing) in fire-resistant waste containers and dispose of properly.

    • Drying

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

      Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

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

  • Working tools / cleaning
    • Brush
    • Paintbrush with synthetic bristles, flat brush (synthetic bristles), automatic brush coater


      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.

      Use the contents of open containers as quickly as possible.

  • Usage
    • Approx. 60 ml / m² per layer applied
    • Approx. 60 ml/m² per coat

      Higher application rate on rough and grooved wood.
      Application quantity depends on the absorbency of the substrate.
      Determine the precise quantity by applying to a test area.
      Max. 2 coats, apply thinly by brush.
      Remove or smooth over any excess material immediately (especially in notches and grooves).

  • 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).


      Brush surfaces thoroughly and do not use any high-pressure water jet equipment or aggressive cleaning agents.

      Please observe the “Care Instructions for Wooden Garden Furniture”.

      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.

      On terrace surfaces in the area of swimming pools, the increased exposure to chlorine, cleaning agents and intensive moisture can lead to reduced adhesion and weathering of the coating. Shorter maintenance and renovation intervals must be expected here.

  • 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
