    • 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%

        Final wood sanding no finer than P 180

      • 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.

        If you wish to add colour, prime with Decorative Wax Stain or OB-008.

        If applying a subsequent coating using a roller: intermediate drying time min. 24 hours.

        When sealing old parquet flooring, end-grain wood parquet and installation patterns with the wood grain running in different directions, we recommend pre-treating with OB-008 clear and leaving to dry for at least 48 hours in order to ensure that the substrate is thoroughly saturated and absorbs the material evenly.

    • Application
      • Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +15 °C to max. +25 °C
      • Stir before use
      • Stir well.

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

        Apply by spraying or with a roller.

        Flow cup gun: nozzle: 1.6 - 1.8 mm; atomiser air pressure: max. 2 bar

        Airless spraying: nozzle size: 0.23 - 0.28 mm, material pressure: 80 - 120 bar.

        Airmix spraying: nozzle 0.23 - 0.28 mm, material pressure: 80 - 100 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 6 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.

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

        Owing to the high reactivity of the product, skin formation may occur. Please remove before stirring and sieve as a precaution.

        Make sure the area is well ventilated when using indoors.

        Dispose spray dust deposits regularly to avoid ignition of the spray dust.

        Avoid ultra-fine material atomisation and excessive overspray.

        Leave fresh spraying dust to dry before sweeping up.

        The product itself is not self-igniting.

        When sanding wooden surfaces that have been treated with the product, always wear respiratory protection (dust filter mask P2).

        Risk of self-ignition (DGUV information brochure 209-046).

        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.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Short-pile (3-5 mm) velour or mohair roller, flow cup gun, airless/airmix spraying equipment, filler knife

        Clean tools immediately after use with V 101 Thinner.

        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.
