Article No. 712001
Water-based, quick-drying premium wood stain for professional use
The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.
The substrate must be clean, dust-free and dry.
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. V 101 thinner, thinner & brush cleaner).
Smooth, planed wood surfaces should be sanded and dusted before the coating is applied to ensure better absorption.
Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 18 "Coatings on Wood and Wooden Working Materials in Outdoor Areas".
Optimum temperature of material, air and substrate: min. +10 °C to max. +25 °C. Relative humidity 50% - 65%.
Qualified specialist firms: by brush
Apply in the direction of the grain.
Apply a second coat once the first has dried.
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.
Substances in oak may bleed, causing dark discolouration, when coated with water dilutable dispersion stains.
Pre-testing is recommended also on other woods.
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.
End-grain surfaces must be sealed with the corresponding colour (at least 2 applications)
Cut end-grain surfaces at the bottom to create a water-drip edge.
Each layer of medium-build stain results in a more intense colour and a glossier finish.
Dust-dry: after approx. 1 hour Can be coated: after approx. 2-3 hours
Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.
Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.
Use a foamed protection foil between the single coated wood elements to avoid blocking.
Ready to use
Acrylic brush, surface brush
Clean tools with water or Aqua RK-898 Cleaning Concentrate immediately after use.
Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.
Store in well-sealed, original containers, out of the reach of children and in a dry, cool, well-ventilated room which is protected from direct sunlight and frost. No smoking is permitted in storage areas.
Preventive protection against blue stain at 197-216 ml/m² in at least 2 applications
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.
In accordance with DIN 68800-1, wood preservation measures must be planned in a timely and careful manner in coordination with all parties involved in the construction (architect, client, contractor) taking into account legal requirements and local conditions.
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.
