    Field of application

    • for dimensionally stable elements
    • for elements with limited dimensional stability
    • for not dimensionally stable elements
    • For use outdoors
    • For use on exterior wood
    • 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
    • Primer, intermediate and finishing coats
    • Biocide-free finishing coat for impregnated wood, e.g. garden furniture
    • Can also be used as a maintenance coat


    • Solvent-based
    • High total solids level for greater covering capacity
    • Block resistant (in accordance with Code of Practice HO.03)
    • Free of aromatic compounds
    • Easy to apply
    • Good edge coverage
    • Weatherproof and moisture-regulating
    • Isolating effect against substances contained in the wood
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        Dimensionally stable wood building elements: wood moisture content 11-15%

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

        The substrate must be clean, dust-free and dry.

      • Preparations

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

        Thoroughly sand any old coatings that are still intact.

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

        Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 18 "Coatings on Wood and Wooden Working Materials in Outdoor Areas".

        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
      • By brush / By roller
      • Stir well.

        Apply using a brush or roller.

        Apply further coats once dry.

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

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 12 h
      • Check the product’s compatibility, adhesion and sealing effect on the substrate by applying to trial areas.

        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.

        On surfaces that are not exposed to daylight, e.g. the inner surfaces of windows and external doors, alkyd resin systems exhibit a certain degree of dark yellowing, in particular in rebates.

        Bright, intense colours such as yellow, orange and red may have a lower covering capacity as a natural consequence of the pigments used. When using these colours, it is therefore recommended either to first apply a coat of a similar colour with a greater covering capacity, or to apply a second coat in the desired colour.

        When using the product in the workshop or in enclosed spaces, make sure that the area has adequate air circulation and a good supply of fresh air.

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

      • Drying

        Dust-dry: approx. 4 hours
        Touch-dry: approx. 6-8 hours
        Can be overcoated after approx. 12 hours

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

        The coating may take significantly longer to dry thoroughly in lower temperatures, at high humidity or if the maximum layer thickness has been exceeded.

        Longer drying times can improve the sealing effect.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush / By roller
      • Brush with natural bristles, mohair roller, foam roller

      • Clean tools immediately after use with thinner and brush cleaner.

        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. 50 ml - 70 ml / m² per layer applied
      • Approx. 50 - 70 ml/m² per coat

    • 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).


        The final degree of gloss only sets in approx. 2-3 weeks after application. There may be slight differences in the gloss level depending on the colour.

        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.
