The stated values represent typical product characteristics and are not to be construed as binding product specifications.
Field of application
- For use on interior and exterior wood
- Dimensionally stable wood building elements: e.g. windows and doors
- 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
- Biocide-free topcoat on impregnated wood, e.g. garden furniture
- Clear UV+ can also be used as a sacrificial layer over pigmented variants to prevent the wood from darkening
- Weather-resistant and UV-resistant
- High UV protection for light colours and clear UV+
- Silk matt
- Dirt-repellent and easy to maintain
- Block resistant (in accordance with Code of Practice HO.03)
- Good flow properties
- Free from film preservation and wood protection biocides
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).
Exterior wood that is to be protected against insects, blue stain and rot must first be treated with Aqua IG-15 Impregnation Primer IT* - this is not necessary for interior wood (*use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use).
When painting exterior 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 exterior wood, 3 coats of clear UV+ must be applied.
Windows and exterior doors require 3 coats.
Use material with the same batch number on contiguous surfaces (mix material of different batches beforehand), otherwise slight differences in colour, gloss and texture may occur.
All colours can be mixed with one another.
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.
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.
Cut end-grain surfaces at the bottom to create a water-drip edge.
Apply two coats of Induline SW-910 to end-grain wood and cut surfaces to protect against moisture.
Only use the clear and white versions for exterior surfaces that are not exposed to direct weathering, such as soffits, etc.
Due to the different covering properties of white and pastel varnish colours, the optical appearance may vary depending on the substrate. It must be checked in advance whether discolouration of the varnish may occur due to substances contained in the wood.
In order to take account of and clarify these issues, a trial surface must be prepared in order to ensure that the surface meets expectations.
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. If necessary, dilute with up to 5% water or Aqua OZA-90 Open Time Additive.
Working tools / cleaning
Brush with acrylic bristles, flat brush
Clean tools immediately after use with water and detergent.
Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.
Storage / shelf life
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.
