        Wood moisture content: 8-12%

      • Preparations

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

        Wash off greasy or resin-rich woods/substrates with WV-891 or V-890.

        Sand wood with P 80 - 150.

        The coarser the sanded finish, the more intense the colouring in pigmented varieties will be.

    • Application
      • Application temperature: min. 18 °C max. 25 °C
      • Stir before use
      • By brush / By roller / Filling knife
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +18°C to max. +25°C.

      • Stir well.

        Application by roller, brush, spreader or pad.

        When applying each coat, remove any excess oil using a lint-free cotton cloth after approximately 20-30 minutes.

        Seal opened containers well and use contents as soon as possible.

    • Application instructions
      • 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.

        Ensure good ventilation.

        Risk of self-ignition (DGUV information brochure 209-046).

        The product should not be applied at the same work stand as NC-based varnishes or stains. Collect any textiles soiled with the product (e.g. cleaning rags, work clothing) in fire-resistant waste containers and dispose of properly.

      • Drying

        Dust-dry: after approx. 4 hours Overcoating by spraying: after approx. 6 hours Overcoating with a roller: after approx. 14 hours

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

        Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high humidity delay drying.

      • Thinning

        If necessary, dilute with max. 2% Thinner V 101. OB-008 Oil Stain (clear) is the base material for thinning and for adjusting/reducing the colour intensity.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • By brush / By roller / Filling knife
      • Flat brush, short-pile (3-5 mm) velour or mohair roller, rotary disc machine with white non-abrasive pad, rags/lint-free cotton cloth, stainless steel/spring spatula

      • Clean tools immediately after use with V 101 Thinner.

        Ensure that any residue from cleaning is disposed of correctly.

    • Usage
      • Approx. 40 ml - 80 ml / m² per layer applied
      • 40 - 80 ml/m² The application rate is highly dependent on the absorbency of the wood and the final sanded finish. After every application, remove excess material with a lint-free cotton cloth after approx. 20-30 minutes.
