The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.
Field of application
- For use on exterior wood
- Soft and hard woods
- Dimensionally stable wood building elements: e.g. windows and doors (including their interior surfaces)
- 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
- Can also be used as a thin-layer varnish for building elements that are not dimensionally stable
- Good pore wetting performance
- Ready to apply by dipping or flow-coating
- Good flow characteristics on untreated and impregnated wood
- Film preserver protects against microbial damage
- Weather resistant
- Long open working time
The substrate must be clean, dry, free of dust, grease and loose substances, and prepared in the correct manner.
Dimensionally stable wood building elements: wood moisture content 11-15%
Wood building elements with limited or no dimensional stability: wood moisture content max. 18%
Completely remove old coatings (e.g. paints or medium-build stains), bark, bast and dirt.
Remove loose and torn knots as well as resin that bleeds and clean with a suitable product (e.g. thinner & brush cleaner).
Smooth, planed wood surfaces should be sanded and dusted before the coating is applied to ensure better absorption.
If necessary, impregnate non-resistant woods with a wood preservative* (*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. +30 °C
Stir well, including during application or after a break in work.
Qualified specialist companies: brushing, dipping, flow-coating and spraying in closed systems only.
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.
Ensure good aeration and ventilation in particular in series production.
Sealing compounds must be compatible with the coating and may only be applied once the coating has dried thoroughly.
Clear, white and hemlock are suitable for use only on not directly weathered surfaces in outdoor areas, such as roof eaves, or as base coat.
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.
Seal end-grain surfaces using LT Stain UV in the corresponding colour (at least 2 coats).
Each layer of medium-build stain results in a more intense colour and a glossier finish.
Can be overcoated: after approx. 24 hours
Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.
Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.
