Article No. 713001
Decorative, water-based medium-solid gel stain with very high UV protection for universal use on wood indoors and outdoors
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%
Thoroughly remove any dirt, grease and non-adhering old coatings.
Sand grey and weathered wood surfaces down to sound, bright wood.
If necessary, the substrate can be made more uniform with Aqua RG-27.
Remove any loose and torn knots as well as resin that bleeds from the wood and clean with a suitable product (e.g. V 101 Thinner).
Wood outdoors that is to be proteced against blue stain and rot, must first be treated with Aqua IG-15 (this is not necessary for wood indoors).
When painting outdoor wood with the colour Clear UV+, the wood must first be pre-treated with Wood Protection Cream Clear*.
Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 18 "Coatings on Wood and Wooden Working Materials in Outdoor Areas".
Thoroughly sand any old coatings that are still intact.
Temperature of material, surroundings and substrate: min. +5 °C - max. +25 °C
Apply by brush.
Apply in the direction of the grain.
Apply a second coat once the first has dried.
If required, Clear UV+ can be used as a third coat to permanently fix the desired colour (sacrificial layer that is renewed when renovating).
When the colour clear UV+ is used for wood outdoors 3 coats of clear UV+ are mandatory.
End grain areas should be painted over with several coats of the material in the corresponding colour to protect against water absorption.
Windows and exterior doors require 3 coats.
All colours can be mixed with one another.
Check colour and compatibility with the substrate by applying a trial coat.
Do not use below + 5°C
If the temperature is too low or the humidity too high, it will take longer for the material to reach the desired properties.
If the temperature is too high or the humidity too low, the material will dry more quickly. In such cases, we recommend adding Aqua OZA-90 Open Time Additive.
Do not use on wood impregnated with boron salts.
Each layer of medium-build stain results in a more intense colour and a glossier finish.
Substances in oak may bleed, causing dark discolouration, when coated with water dilutable dispersion stains.
Mechanical damages, especially to clear coatings, must be immediatly repaired with "clear UV+" to prevent discolouring, caused e.g. by blue stain.
Areas that are being coated or dried should be protected against rain, wind, sunlight and condensation.
Dust-dry: approx. 1 hour Can be coated: approx. 4 hours
Practice values at +20 °C and 65% relative humidity.
Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.
Ready to use
Acrylic brush/synthetic fibre bristle
Clean tools immediately after use with water and detergent.
Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.
At least 36 months in unopened, original containers stored cool, dry and protected from frost.
Use the contents of open containers as quickly as possible.
Approx. 100 ml/m² per coat Pigmented: 2 coats Clear UV+: 3 coats
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.
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.
