The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.
Field of application
- For use on interior and 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
- Wooden beehives, bee boxes and other wooden elements used in beekeeping
- Water-based with a very low solvent content
- Made from at least 80% renewable raw materials
- Bee-friendly formula
- A vegan product based on the information available to us
- Block resistant (in accordance with Code of Practice HO.03)
- Weather-resistant and UV-resistant
Dimensionally stable wood building elements: wood moisture content 11-15%
Wood building elements with limited or no dimensional stability: wood moisture content max. 18%
Thoroughly remove any dirt, grease and non-adhering old coatings.
Sand grey and weathered wood surfaces down to sound, bright wood.
Remove loose knots and any surface resin with a suitable product (e.g. thinner or brush cleaner).
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.
Thoroughly sand any old coatings that are still intact.
Pre-treat exterior wood which requires protection against rot and blue stain with Wood Protection Primer.* (*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".
Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +5 °C to max. +25 °C
Stir well and apply quickly using a brush.
Apply in the direction of the grain.
Apply a second coat once the first has dried.
Apply a further coat if required.
Apply several coats of the corresponding colour to end-grain surfaces to prevent them from absorbing water. Alternatively, protect end-grain surfaces by applying End-Grain Wood Preservative after the colouring primer coat.
All colours can be mixed with one another.
When coating continuous surfaces, only use materials with the same batch number as slight differences in colour, gloss and texture may occur.
Seal opened containers well and use contents as soon as possible.
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.
Cut end-grain surfaces at the bottom to create a water-drip edge.
Two coats of end-grain wood preservative should first be applied to end-grain wood and cut surfaces in order to protect them against moisture.
Each layer of medium-build stain results in a more intense colour and a glossier finish.
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.
Substances in oak may bleed, causing dark discolouration, when coated with water dilutable dispersion stains.
Areas that are being coated or dried should be protected against rain, wind, sunlight and condensation.
Only use the clear and white versions for exterior surfaces that are not exposed to direct weathering, such as soffits, etc.
Due to the different covering properties of white and pastel varnish colours, the optical appearance may vary depending on the substrate. It must be checked in advance whether discolouration of the varnish may occur due to substances contained in the wood.
Due to the low UV protection of these colour shades, shorter maintenance intervals must be expected.
In order to take account of and clarify these issues, a trial surface must be prepared in order to ensure that the surface meets expectations.
Do not use on wood impregnated with boron salts.
Can be overcoated: after approx. 8 hours
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.
Ready to use
Working tools / cleaning
Brush with acrylic bristles, flat brush
Clean tools immediately after use with water and detergent.
Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.
As contaminated fabrics can have a tendency to spontaneously combust, soak them in water before gathering them together under water in fireproof bins and disposing of them.
Storage / shelf life
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.
Approx. 60 ml/m² per coat
At least 2 coats
In principle, the product is also suitable for use on wood rich in substances (e.g. oak, robinia, acacia).
However, reactions with the water-soluble substances in the wood may occur that result in discolouration of the coating film and thus an impaired optical appearance (this is particularly true of white and grey shades).
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.
