    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The substrate must be clean, dry, free of dust, grease and loose substances, and prepared in the correct manner.

        Wood moisture content: 8-12%

        Softwoods: raw wood longitudinal sanding with P 120

        Hardwoods: raw wood longitudinal sanding with P 180

        Ring-porous woods (e.g. oak, ash, walnut): additionally brush out pores with a bronze brush

      • Preparations

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

        Wash off greasy or resin-rich woods/substrates with WV-891 or V-890. Use UN-894 indoors on the construction site. Ensure good ventilation for solvents.

        Use a stain for tinting if required.

        When sealing wooden floors, we recommend pre-treatment with HSO-118 [eco] followed by a drying time of at least 48 hours to ensure saturation and uniform material absorption of the substrate.

        Wood in outdoor areas not directly exposed to weathering: Observe BFS Leaflet No. 18 "Coatings on wood and wood-based materials in outdoor areas".

    • Application
      • Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +15 °C to max. +25 °C
      • Roller, airless/airmix spraying, flow cup gun
      • Stir well.

        For better wetting of the substrate and pores, we recommend applying the first coat with a roller.


        Roller application:

        Clear only.

        Apply even layer thicknesses, including in overlapping areas.

        Application on small areas: microfibre roller, 5 mm pile height.

        Application on large areas: microfibre roller, 8 mm pile height.


        Spray application:

        Flow cup gun: nozzle size: 1.0 - 1.6 mm, atomiser air pressure: 1.0 - 2.0 bar.

        Airless spraying: nozzle size: 0.23 mm, material pressure: 60 - 80 bar.

        Airmix spraying: nozzle size: 0.23 mm, material pressure: 50 - 70 bar, atomiser air pressure: max. 1 bar.


        After drying and intermediate sanding (P 240 - 320), apply a second coat of the product.

        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 3 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 coating to a trial surface and conduct a suitability test on the desired area of use.

        Prior to full application, please apply a test coat to a sample area under practical conditions using the desired system, then test or examine the surface properties.

        This product is marketed as a "no creaking" product when used on staircases. This is only possible if the stairs have been constructed correctly and professionally (design, accuracy of fit, wood moisture content).

        For smoked oak and other exotic woods, Remmers Technical Service must be consulted prior to use and a trial area set up.

        Avoid excessive overspray.

        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 and high humidity delay drying.

        Drying is dependent on the type of wood and the absorbency of the substrate.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use, add approx. 10% water if necessary

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Roller, airless/airmix spraying, flow cup gun
      • Sealant roller with microfibre cover approx. 5 - 8 mm pile height, flow cup gun, airless/airmix spraying equipment

      • Clean tools with water or Aqua RK-898 Cleaning Concentrate immediately after use.

        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 12 months
      • If stored unopened in its original container in a cool, dry place and protected against frost, the product will keep for at least 12 months.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 70 ml - 90 ml / m² per layer applied
      • Two coats at 70 - 90 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 variant "grain+" initially creates subtle emphasis of the grain. Over time, a warm colour tone generally intensifies.

        Oil-based products contain natural ingredients. Under the influence of UV light, light exclusion (dark yellowing), heat or individual wood changes, these can lead to a change in the surface. This requires special surface care, please refer to the leaflet on general application instructions for oils and waxes. If these changes are not desired, a stained and lightfast lacquered surface design is recommended.

        Use breathable materials when packing the coated wood building elements.

        When applying over large surface areas in the commercial flooring sector, consult Remmers Technical Service in advance and create a trial area.

        Assessment of sealed wooden floors according to DIN 18356 (permissible unevenness under grazing light incidence).

        Dust and loose dirt on stairs should be removed regularly using a soft broom or mop.

        If necessary, mop once a week with a slightly damp cloth, making sure to add Oiled Floor Care [eco] to the water used for mopping.

        Please refer to the relevant test reports/certificates and the Technical Data Sheet for information on certified products and configurations.

    • 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.
