    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        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.

        Wood substrates:

        Sand grey and weathered wood surfaces down to sound, bright wood.

        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).

        Outdoor wood that is to be protected against wood-destroying insects, soft rot and blue stain should be pre-treated with Aqua IG-15 Impregnation Primer IT*.

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

        To prevent bleeding of substances in the wood, apply a primer coat of Aqua AG-26 All Primer when using this product in white or light colours.

        To avoid bleeding of substances in the wood into adjoining building elements (e.g. infilling in framework areas), treat the wood all round.

        Old weathered carbolineum coatings can only be coated with dark colours. Always test first with a trial coating.

        Zinc (galvanised steel):

        Clean with an ammonium-based wetting agent, using an abrasive pad. Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 5.

        Pre-treat with Aqua AG-26 All Primer if the substrate is exposed to increased mechanical stresses.

        Mineral substrates:

        Substrates should be prepared in accordance with the guidelines for scrub-proof and weather-resistant dispersion paints (DIN 53778).

        Thoroughly remove algae and moss from old fibrated cement surfaces. Allow the substrate to dry fully.

        Repair damaged render.

        Set up a trial area to test whether the product can be used to rework old oil-based coatings.

    • Application
      • Stir before use
      • By brush / By roller
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 25 °C
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +5 °C to max. +25 °C

      • Stir well and apply quickly using a brush or roller.

        Observe the waiting times between coats.

        See application examples for substrate-specific set-up.

    • Application instructions
      • Drying time: can be worked over after 2-4 h
      • If using white or light colours, apply 2 primer coats of Aqua AG-26 All Primer.

        The colour shown on the sample does not appear until the material has dried.

        Paint-on-paint contact, e.g. stacking, should be avoided.

        Do not use on wood impregnated with boron salts.

        Ensure sufficient ventilation when applying indoors.

      • Drying

        2 - 4 hours at 20 °C and 65% relative humidity. Wood in outdoor areas should be protected from rain for at least 4 hours after coating (danger of washing off).

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        With water if necessary.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush / By roller
      • Acrylic brush / synthetic bristles, microfibre paint roller

      • Clean tools immediately after use with water and detergent.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Shelf-life 36 months
      • Store frost-free and cool / protect for moisture / close containers
      • At least 36 months in unopened, original containers stored cool, dry and protected from frost.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 80 ml - 100 ml / m² per layer applied
      • Approx. 80 - 100 ml/m² per coat If pre-treated with Aqua AG-26 All Primer (for light colours): 1 x 100 ml/m² See application examples for substrate-specific set-up

    • General information
      • 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.

    • Disposal instructions
      • 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.

    • Safety / regulations
