    Field of application

    • For use on exterior wood
    • Wood which is not in ground contact, in accordance with DIN EN 335-1, use classes 2 and 3
    • Wood building elements with no dimensional stability: e.g. fences, framework, carports, planking
    • Wood building elements with limited dimensional stability, e.g. folding shutters, matchboarding, summerhouses
    • Load-bearing wood elements under roofs (e.g. trusses)
    • Dimensionally stable wood building elements (when used as a primer only): e.g. windows and doors
    • Pre-treatment under translucent or opaque coatings

    Properties

    • Preventive protection against wood-discolouring fungi (blue stain), wood-destroying fungi (rot), insects (and termites)
    • Reduces spotting when used in combination with coloured primers
    • Impregnated wood is suitable for all follow-up coatings
    • Economical thanks to the low application rate
    • Quick-drying
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        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%

      • Preparations

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

        Take appropriate measures to protect adjacent building elements and materials that should not come into contact with the product.

        Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 18 "Coatings on Wood and Wooden Working Materials in Outdoor Areas".

    • Application
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: +15°C to 30°C.

    • Application instructions
      • Check colour, adhesion and compatibility with the substrate by setting up a trial area.

        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.

      • Drying

        Can be overcoated: after approx. 4 hours

        Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        Ready to use

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Brush with acrylic bristles, flat brush

      • 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 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.
